Lennar Orange County

Rancho Mission Viejo, Calif. – November 2018 – Lennar at Esencia offers homeshoppers an incredible opportunity to purchase a brand-new home in an amenity-rich setting within walking distance to the very first school in Rancho Mission Viejo. A first of its kind to the area and part of the acclaimed Capistrano Unified School District, Esencia K-8 School is an authentic reflection of the Rancho Mission Viejo masterplan, shaped by the residents of the masterplan to reflect the area’s ideals and values. With the addition of this new school to the Rancho Mission Viejo masterplan, Esencia offers an exceptional setting where residents can live, learn and play.

“Esencia at Rancho Mission Viejo offers an enviable, close-knit neighborhood feel, but with newly constructed homes set within an award-winning masterplan that delivers a one-of-a-kind living experience,” said Janet Price, Marketing Director for Lennar California Coastal. “With a coffee house, open spaces, incredible views, state-of-the-art facilities, a new modern school and so much more, everything you need for a fun-filled life is here.”

From its curriculum to the school colors, this new school was a community effort by Rancho Mission Viejo residents. Students will receive a first-rate education with STEAM classes, an innovation center with state-of-the-art tech and robotics, plus multi-use sports and gathering spaces. In the next four years, the school will service about 1,300 students from K-8.

This brand-new school is just one of the many amenities at Esencia. Discover exciting recreation and entertainment moments from your new home like The Canyon House, the social and recreational hub of the community, Esencia Farm, a volunteer-run suburban farm, several state-of-the-art clubhouses, sparkling pools and spas, play zones, dog parks and more.

This farm-style “town” is beautifully spread out and evokes a feeling like you’re in a completely new world with residential neighborhoods and incredible amenities interwoven throughout to encourage residents to get out and connect with each other. But you’re never far away from the city life — Orange County’s most sought-after recreation, entertainment and business districts are just a short drive away, plus the 241 toll road is now open through Los Patrones Parkway which leads right into Rancho Mission Viejo for a quick commute into Irvine and the 133.
