Mission Viejo Homes For Sale

Located in the beautiful Saddleback Valley, Mission Viejo invites you to experience all that it has to offer. The city’s name is a reference to Rancho Mission Viejo, a large Spanish land grant from which the community was founded. From the picturesque tree-lined neighborhoods and large man-made lake, to the expansive shopping centers offering entertainment, shopping and fine dining, Mission Viejo has what you are looking for.

This mainly residential community features a large number of single family homes, as well as apartments and condos. The homes and shopping centers in the city are almost uniformly designed in a Spanish mission style, with “adobe”-like stucco walls and barrel-tile roofs. The city is known for its stunningly tree-lined streets, which have received recognition from the National Arbor Day Foundation. Construction options include both new and existing homes.

Mission Viejo Recreation

Mission Viejo enjoys a borderline semi-arid/Mediterranean climate, with mild temperatures and plentiful sunshine year-round. The comfortable climate allows you to enjoy many of the city’s outdoor recreational opportunities all year long. For the golfer, three courses are available – The Mission Viejo Country Club, Casta del Sol Golf Course, and the Arroyo Trabuco Golf Club. If boating or fishing is more to your liking, at the heart of the city is Lake Mission Viejo, where you can partake of boat and paddle board rentals, do some fishing, take a dip from one of the swim beaches, or just enjoy a picnic along the shore. Additionally, a number of athletic events are hosted by the city, including triathlons and 5ks.

Mission Viejo Entertainment

There are two main shopping, dining and entertainment centers in the city – The Shops at Mission Viejo and the Kaleidoscope Center. Here you can find some of Mission Viejo’s many dining options, alongside shops featuring your favorite brands. Both are the perfect destinations for catching a lunch and a day of shopping with friends. . What’s more, Lake Mission Viejo also hosts many great concerts and movie screenings during the summer season.

Mission Viejo is a prominent community that believes in just that – community. Recurring events and holiday celebrations bring the inhabitants of the city together. Independence Day fireworks, winter holiday decorations and street fairs are just some of what you can expect.

Community Services

Other amenities of the area include Saddleback Community College and Mission Hospital. Serving as the area’s regional trauma center, Mission Hospital is the largest hospital in South Orange County and provides care for children in one of two Children’s Hospital of Orange County locations.

The city itself is considered one of the largest master-planned communities ever built under a single project in the United States. As the first successful master planned community in the United States, Mission Viejo has proven to be a major success story.
