La Paz Mission Viejo Homes Single Level

Mission Viejo Homes

The Mission Viejo Company planned the city so it would pay tribute to its rural Spanish heritage. The street names, neighborhoods, building facades, street lights and more all reflect this classic theme. This changed slightly in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s with developments like Pacific Hills and Califia that have a more Tuscan look and feel. There are also several homes and neighborhoods with a “traditional” look as well.

I believe almost all of the first homes in Mission Viejo were built by the Mission Viejo Company. The Deane Homes, of course, were built by the Deane Brothers. Some of the last housing tracts built by the Mission Viejo Company were Briarwood and Sunrise Ridge in the mid-to-late-1980’s. Make sure to check out the Vintage Mission Viejo page for 1960’s advertising of the first homes built by the Mission Viejo Company.

There are so many neighborhoods, over 100, that there is no way I could picture each one! However, I will keep taking photos and updating this gallery. There are some Home Search links below.

I enjoyed visiting the neighborhoods and taking photos of the many different homes in Mission Viejo! There may be thousands of Madrid Homes, Cordova Homes, etc., but each is so different! Folks have changed the facade of the home by adding rock or brick or other architectural details, and the front landscaping is so unique! I hope you get some ideas from what your neighbors have accomplished. Make sure to check out the GARDEN post for garden and landscaping ideas.

If you want to search for homes, go to the Home Search page. If you would like to see recent sales in some of the Mission Viejo neighborhoods, go to the various Neighborhood Pages: Mission Viejo North, Mission Viejo Central and Mission Viejo South. You can also go to my main Orange County Real Estate site to expand your search and find tons of custom links showcasing new listings throughout all of Orange County.
