A land with a legacy

The History

Our story began over 137 years ago

What started as a dream shared by two entrepreneurs grew into the largest Ranch in Orange County. And later, the most unique community of its kind.

The Vision

A new idea of what community can be

With a historic cattle ranch, a nature reserve and a home community all within the same expanse of land, the goal has always been to share our heritage with our residents.

The Ranch

Our land makes us who we are

Life on a historic cattle ranch comes with some exceptional elements to discover. It’s a major part of our story that we’re proud to have carried into present day.
