Irvine is a perennial winner on a lot of annual “Best” lists. In 2011, Irvine placed sixth on “Money” magazine’s Top 10 Best Places to Live, which noted that, “Thanks to smart planning, this big city can feel surprisingly small.” Strong job opportunities, excellent schools routinely ranked among the nation’s best, quality health care and lots of recreational and entertainment options were other factors the magazine cited. Irvine also earns kudos as one of the nation’s safest big cities. And, as Mayor Steven Choi is quick to point out, “The city is clean and aesthetically pleasing.” Add it all up and Irvine is definitely a great place to live and raise a family. So if you’re looking for homes in Irvine, don’t miss the opportunities coming this spring at Saviero and Capella, our new homes at Orchard Hills®, the newest of the Villages of Irvine.
The newest of the Villages of Irvine, Orchard Hills® will be a landmark village, unlike any other in the master plan. With an elevated location set against the Loma Ridge backdrop, Orchard Hills® will offer dramatic topography and natural beauty reminiscent of a countryside in Europe. Live here and you’ll have acres of open space and rolling hillsides to enjoy and explore. Located in the eastern portion of Irvine at Culver Boulevard and Portola Parkway, Orchard Hills® is convenient to local dining, services and retail shops at the 125,000-square Orchard Hills® Town Center on Portola Parkway. And, when you really want a destination shopping experience, you’ll find the spectacular Irvine Spectrum not too far away.
