The last working ranch in Orange County, residents enjoy a unique lifestyle found only at The Ranch, including acres of citrus groves, miles of protected creeks, nearby beaches, jobs, cultural amenities and outstanding dining and retail. Upon completion, The Ranch will occupy approximately 6,000 acres, or 25%, of the historic 23,000-acre Rancho Mission Viejo, Orange County’s last working ranch, which has been held in the O’Neill/Moiso/Avery family since 1882. About 17,000 acres, or 75%, of The Ranch will be preserved for ranching, farming and the phased formation of a large habitat conservation area known as The Nature Reserve at Rancho Mission Viejo.
Two new Gavilán neighborhoods exclusively for 55+ residents will be opening in the next phase of the Village of Rienda, coming in late 2022.
