Irvine, Orange County’s “City of Villages” is one of Southern California’s original master planned communities. Designed from the beginning with residential resort living in mind, Irvine offers countless greenways, fine dining, entertainment and easy access to some the world’s largest companies who have regional offices within the city limits. Irvine is close to one of the region’s most convenient airports, Orange County/John Wayne.
The region’s climate is more moderate and comfortable throughout the year given the closer proximity to the ocean, and easy access to various Orange County beaches offers endless options for outdoor activities and dining near the water.
The city includes some 47 “villages” which are individual planned communities, each offering a unique architectural style and different amenities.
Lake Forest, just to the northeast of Irvine and tucked into the foothills of the Santa Ana mountains, is a newer master planned community that offers a variety of new construction resort style homes along with existing communities that surround two recreational lakes. Lake Forest is adjacent to the 241 Toll Road and offers quick commutes to business centers around Irvine and north to the Anaheim/Corona/Riverside area.
