To help our clients learn more about the different communities in South Orange County we like to each week highlight four different cities which are uniquely different from each. Each community in the county has its own unique attributes and amenities – different qualities with varying degrees of architectural designs based on its location and when the community was established. South Orange County is generally divided into coastal and inland areas – with the inland cities sitting adjacent to the Pacific Ocean.
This week we are highlighting the communities of Laguna Niguel, Newport Coast, Irvine and Mission Viejo. Laguna Niguel is unique in that part of the city is alongside the ocean but it stretches all the way to the five-freeway. In Laguna Niguel you will find a wide selection of single-level homes and luxury condominiums. Newport Coast is certainly one of the most exclusive communities in Southern California, with much of the community perched on the rolling hills separating Laguna Beach and Newport Coast you will find estate homes, condos and mansions here. Irvine is mainly an urban city largely comprised of master-planned communities, you will also find high-rise condos and penthouses in the cities center. Mission Viejo is recognized for being a family-friendly city catering to both young and old, with many 55+ communities in the city.
If you have some time this weekend and want to view some Orange County open houses, here are a few that we found interesting.
