Why Irvine Living is Better Living

Why Irvine Living is Better Living

When it comes to finding your dream home, the choice includes so much more than just the actual house you live in — it’s about finding the community that is right for you and your family. In this new normal that we are all facing in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, that has never rang more true. In Irvine, you will discover everything you want and more. From expansive new home designs and award-winning schools to convenient access to abundant parks and open spaces, the Villages of Irvine's timeless residences are waiting for you to call them home. 


New Life, Better Living

Studies have shown that an increase of urban dwellers are now seeking less dense cities and locations. Forty percent of U.S. adults living in urban areas said they would consider moving out of populated areas, while 24% of U.S. adults working from home said they thought about moving now that they are spending more time at home. In addition, 43% of urban dwellers were twice as likely to have recently browsed a real estate website in search of homes and apartments, either to rent or to buy.


What does all of this mean? These studies show that, with the ability to work remotely, people are now no longer bound to their current location — which means you can search for a new home that offers everything you’ve been looking for. Nestled in the Villages of Irvine, our home designs are located in a family-friendly environment next to parks, open space and award-winning schools - all in America's safest city of its size, Irvine.


Wide Open Spaces

Jeffery Open Space Trail

While cities like Los Angeles may have big city conveniences, they cannot match the combination of those conveniences with the beauty of acres upon acres of preserved land in Irvine. Home to a stunning 57,000 acres of parks and open spaces, Irvine offers ample ways to connect with the outdoors and take advantage of the city’s beauty.


When the Irvine Master Plan was created 60 years ago, it envisioned a livable city of parks and open space that were connected by trails and bike paths. Since then, Irvine Company has preserved tens of thousands of acres and opened over 40 hiking trails — which include the famous Back Bay Loop Trail, where you can stop at places like the Back Bay Science Center at Shellmaker Island, Big Canyon Inlet, and Upper Castaways Park. Other trails you can find in the area include Quail Hill Loop Trail, the dog-friendly Jeffrey Open Space Trail, and three different trails to enjoy at Bommer Canyon. Of course, we can’t forget the 345 acres of beauty at William Mason Regional Park — and this is just for starters. Irvine has so many acres of beautiful open space to enjoy every single day.


Irvine Company is also dedicated to not only providing aesthetically remarkable places to call home, but to preserve the landscape as well. More than 60% of the 93,000-acre Irvine Ranch is dedicated to permanent preservation, and the land is now one of the largest urban open spaces in the United States. This is larger than any national park!
