Rancho Mission Viejo, Calif. (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
A total of 275 homes have sold/been reserved for purchase within just over three months at Sendero, the first inter-generational village on the new “award-winning” ranch community of Rancho Mission Viejo, situated on a 23,000-acre working ranch in South Orange County, CA.
Designed to ultimately provide a wide range of approximately 940 detached and attached homes, Sendero includes 11 different new-home residential neighborhoods crafted by eight different homebuilders. Four of Sendero’s 11 neighborhoods offer primarily single story homes within the gated 55-plus enclave of Gavilan. Sendero home prices currently range from the $300,000s to over $1 million.
In related news, the Rancho Mission Viejo community was also just named “Master-Planned Community of the Year” by the Greater Sales and Marketing Council for the Building Industry Association of Southern California. The honor was bestowed on Rancho Mission Viejo and its first village of Sendero during the annual SoCal Awards ceremony conducted October 5, 2013 at The Grove in Anaheim. Attending the prestigious awards event were nearly 600 of Southern California’s homebuilding industry professionals. The Building Industry Association of Southern California is a nonprofit trade association representing nearly 1,000 member companies involved in the planning and building of Southern California's new-home residential neighborhoods and communities.
“Since our June 29-30 grand opening, 275 homes have sold/been reserved for purchase – all within just a little over three months,” said Nadine Corrigan, Vice President of Marketing for Rancho Mission Viejo, LLC, stewards of Rancho Mission Viejo and community master planners/developers. “In addition, approximately 35,000 people have visited Sendero since our opening (which garnered 10,000 visitors); and we continue to average between 1,500 and 2,000 visitations weekly to the different homebuilder neighborhoods. Clearly, we’re thrilled with the homebuyer response we’ve received at Sendero as well as our recent honor as ‘Master-Planned Community of the Year.’ People of all life stages and family sizes are discovering Sendero, a special place on The Ranch where the focus is on recreation, exploration, and relaxation.”
According to Corrigan, each of the eight neighborhood homebuilders at Sendero is releasing new phases of homes for sale on a regular basis. The Sendero homebuilders include Del Webb, Meritage Homes, Ryland Homes, SeaCountry Homes, Shea Homes, Standard Pacific Homes, TriPointe Homes, and William Lyon Homes. Construction will commence next year on approximately 285 apartment units by Western National Group.
In addition, now open at Sendero are three clubhouses (one exclusive to Gavilan residents), two fitness centers, pools, spas, a large “all age” village green with pathways leading to tot lots and picnic areas, bocce ball courts, fire pits, turf playgrounds, a native plant garden, and even a putting green. Planned for construction are Sendero’s 15-acre community park, the 10-acre Ranch Marketplace retail plaza, the vegetable and fruit gardens of Sendero Farm, a fire station, and the network of hiking/biking trails accessing select open spaces and a County Regional hiking and biking trails system.
Sendero is the first village on the new ranch community of Rancho Mission Viejo. Ultimately, Rancho Mission Viejo is planned to provide up to 14,000 homes within multiple inter-generational villages on just 6,000 acres of the 23,000-acre active ranch. The remaining 17,000 acres of family-held ranchlands will be part of the vast open spaces of The Reserve at Rancho Mission Viejo. Within the villages on The Ranch will be sites for new schools, parks and recreational facilities, up to five million square feet of commercial uses, and additional trails to access areas of The Reserve. In addition, up to 6,000 of The Ranch’s 14,000 new homes will be dedicated exclusively to homebuyers age 55-plus.
“Sendero homeshoppers have discovered that the best way to begin their home search on The Ranch is at the Guest House, our information center in the heart of Sendero,” said Corrigan. “The helpful Community Representatives at the Guest House provide prospective homebuyers with information about all the benefits associated with living on The Ranch.”
Sendero on The Ranch is situated near the intersection of Ortega Highway and Antonio Parkway, just 2.3 miles from downtown San Juan Capistrano and five miles from San Clemente and Doheny State Beach. Sendero offers easy access to the employment and retail centers of Ladera Ranch, Mission Viejo, Irvine, Rancho Santa Margarita and other Orange County areas.
