Imagine a sprawling community nestled amidst the rolling hills and golden sunshine of Orange County. This is Ladera Ranch, a meticulously planned haven encompassing 4,000 acres. Bordered by the established cities of Mission Viejo and San Juan Capistrano to the west, and Rancho Santa Margarita to the north, Ladera Ranch offers a unique blend of new-world charm and established community spirit.

Its story begins in 1999, when portions of the vast O’Neill, Avery, and Moiso families’ Rancho Mission Viejo cattle ranch were transformed. This working ranch, once the largest in Orange County, became the canvas for Ladera Ranch’s creation. Construction commenced, meticulously carving out nine distinct “villages” within the community. Each village boasts a collection of individually designed neighborhoods, offering a diverse range of housing options to suit various lifestyles.

While Ladera Ranch itself isn’t a designated census-designated place, its residents enjoy the benefits of being part of unincorporated Orange County. This means they’re governed by the Orange County Board of Supervisors, ensuring a well-managed and well-maintained community.

Today, Ladera Ranch thrives as a vibrant tapestry of nature, community, and modern living. Its expansive footprint provides ample room for parks, recreation, and maintaining a connection to the natural beauty of the area. This, coupled with its thoughtful planning and diverse housing options, makes Ladera Ranch a highly sought-after address in Orange County.
