Sales Success and New Hilltop Neighborhoods

The Canyon House Neighborhoods at Esencia have become home to so many new residents, and we’re excited to announce they are more than 50% sold out! We’re proud to say that within the last 10 months, there have been 430 sales, and that number is only growing!

Outstanding Success For The Canyon House Neighborhoods

Grand opening last Fall, Esencia offered 840 homes within its Canyon House Neighborhoods, a collection of 12 neighborhoods by seven homebuilders centered around The Canyon House.  A popular Esencia social amenity and gathering place, The Canyon House features Canyon Coffee where you can grab a cup of Peet’s Coffee, the Esencia Visitors Center, the indoor-outdoor Retreat, event lawn where fun events are held year-round, courtyard, the meeting and art room at The Studio, and the adjacent Oak Canyon open space and trails, which lead to the new Esencia Farm, the third working farm at Rancho Mission Viejo.
