San Juan Capistrano, CA (PRWEB) June 28, 2016
The first village to be developed on The Ranch was the now sold out village of Sendero. The second village on The Ranch is Esencia (Spanish translation: the essence). At build-out, the village of Esencia is planned to provide an integrated mix of 2,537 all age and Gavilan 55-plus homes for sale, all set atop some of the highest elevations on The Ranch.
Through the unique programming and services offered to all Rancho Mission Viejo resident via “RanchLife,” fitness classes, health and wellness workshops, happy hours, club meetings and all sorts of events and activities at The Hilltop Club will be conducted to unite residents via their shared interests and abilities versus dividing them by age. And, views from The Hilltop Club, situated at the pinnacle of Esencia, will feature expansive coastal and backcountry vistas including the preserved lands of The Reserve at Rancho Mission Viejo.
Johnson explained that complimenting places like The Hilltop Club are amenities designed for families as well as amenities exclusive to Gavilan 55-plus residents, including the recently opened Outlook swim and social retreat as well as the large Hacienda clubhouse in the first village of Sendero. Johnson also noted that additional Hilltop Neighborhoods will consist of phased releases of homes now for sale by CalAtlantic Homes, Shea Homes and TRIPointe Homes in Esencia’s Canyon House neighborhoods.
The Canyon House Neighborhoods are oriented around the many amenities found at The Canyon House social and recreational gathering place including Canyon Coffee, the Esencia Visitors Center, the indoor-outdoor Retreat, the event lawn and courtyard, the meeting and art room at The Studio, and the adjacent Oak Canyon open space and trails which lead to the new Esencia Farm, the third working farm on The Ranch.
Plan are also underway for The Pavilion, a multipurpose gymnasium with adaptable space for basketball, volleyball, and all sorts of cultural and social events. And, anticipated to open for instruction by Fall 2018 right next to The Pavilion is the new Esencia K-8 school (part of the acclaimed Capistrano Unified School District). Approximately 50 acres of commercial space has been allocated at Esencia for such uses as retail shops and services, restaurants, professional and medical offices, and more.
Development on The Ranch is a partnership between Rancho Mission Viejo, LLC (managing partner) and DMB Associates, an Arizona-based, diversified real estate company with commercial property/resort/recreational/primary home community holdings throughout Arizona, California, Hawaii and Utah.
