Introducing The NorthWalk Neighborhoods

We’re excited to announce the final neighborhoods of Esencia – The NorthWalk Neighborhoods. Located along the community’s northern-most point, NorthWalk will showcase a new eclectic 5.5-acre linear park called The Backyard to explore in early 2018. The NorthWalk Neighborhoods will arrive in phases beginning October 2017.

Comprised of nine new neighborhoods, NorthWalk will join The Canyon House and The Hilltop Neighborhoods as the third residential area of Esencia. With a more urban vibe, this mixed-use village will boast two new major parks, including a future Sports Park with fields and courts for the whole family. These new additions will add to the already vibrant lifestyle on The Ranch.


Five outstanding builders have been selected to bring The NorthWalk Neighborhoods to Esencia – CalAtlantic Homes, Meritage Homes, Del Webb, William Lyon Homes, and, making its debut on The Ranch, The New Home Company.


Here’s a sneak peak of the nine neighborhoods to choose from: Azure, Cobalt, Topaz, Modena, Vivaz, Avant, Reverie, Vida (Gavilan® 55+) and Alma (Gavilan® 55+). The neighborhoods will include 750 attached and detached homes, ranging from approximately 700 to nearly 4,500 square feet, with both single- and two-story options. That’s plenty of room to call your own or share with family and friends in spaces designed for modern Californian lifestyles. We will have more information on each neighborhood in the coming weeks.


The Ranch has a long and exciting list of recreational and gathering spaces already open, and The NorthWalk Neighborhoods will offer even more options for leading an active and engaging life. Walkable pathways will connect the nine neighborhoods to our new 5.5-acre park, The Backyard. This eclectic green space will include an outdoor lounge with events bar, DIY workshop and tool shed, 2 children’s playgrounds including hill slides, jungle gyms, tot lot, gravity rail, as well as firepits, BBQ’s and a major Sports Park will be opening in The NorthWalk district in the future. The best things in life are just outside your door in The NorthWalk Neighborhoods.
