Gavilán™ Neighborhood Spotlight: Avocet

If you wrote out your home wish list, what would you include?

  • A free-flowing great room?
  • Maybe a spacious cook’s kitchen for your resident Top Chef.
  • How about a bonus room for morning yoga, weekly movie get-togethers, or a cozy reading nook?

All great choices—and that’s why we included them in the single-level neighborhood of Avocet, a Gavilán™ 55+ exclusive.

Gavilán™ is Rancho Mission Viejo’s own lifestyle brand of homes, neighborhoods, events, and amenities crafted for the 55+ crowd. It’s integrated throughout the all-ages neighborhoods of Esencia, making this hillside village a truly intergenerational community.

Avocet features 2-3 bedroom, 2-3 bathroom, courtyard-style homes in Adobe Ranch, Ranch, and California Bungalow architectural styles. And once inside, you’ll enjoy the open, airy feel of the floorplans. Your kitchen, dining area, and great room flow together with a standard covered outdoor area we call the Ranch Room.

Speaking of options, you also have the choice of an additional office or bedroom, bonus room (with deck on the X plans—how great is that?), optional powder or full bath, and more. All in a range of 1,473 to 2,110 sq. ft.—spacious, without feeling too big.


Stop by and take a look at Avocet. It’s just what you wished for in a single-level home, and it’s close to all kinds of Gavilán™ amenities. That means you’re within walking distance of poolside lounging, wine by the fireplace while catching up with neighbors, and resort-style retreats.
