The Ranch Plan provides for multiple residential villages within its 20,868-acre expanse. Each one is unique—while sharing and expanding all the ranch-wide activities and amenities we’re known for. Our first village, Sendero, brought South Orange County an abundance of RanchLife programs and ageless living through exclusive Gavilán 55+ amenities, homes and events. While Esencia, our current village, offers even more home choices and lifestyle opportunities on an elevated ridgeline in the heart of The Ranch.
The Ranch is a place designed with purpose. It’s for young couples ready to find their first home. For families ready to begin their next chapter. And empty nesters looking for their next adventure. The homes are built with architectural designs as timeless as they are stylish. And the amenities offer retreats and entertainment spots for nature lovers and block-party-enthusiasts, fitness buffs and green-thumbs, foodies, road-trippers and everyone in between.
An exciting community lifestyle has been a priority for us since the beginning. That’s why we created RanchLife, our approach to programming, resident-led clubs, events and partnerships that connect you to the surrounding natural habitat, trails, clubhouses and each other. And with new happenings each week, there’s always something fun to try!
The Rancho Mission Viejo Visitor Center is now permanently closed to the public. Please refer to the HOMES section of our website for all current information on remaining new homes and to contact our neighborhood builders directly for appointments.
