To uphold the beauty of their coastal California property, the Moiso-ONeill Family partnered with DMB. As good stewards of the land, DMB worked to bring this goal to fruition. Today, approximately 75% of Rancho Mission Viejo’s 23,000 acres is preserved as open space. The rolling green hills are now home to a remarkable habitat sanctuary, The Reserve.
While Rancho Mission Viejo is large in scale, its neighborhoods maintain a small, informal feeling. Each village reflects the intimacy of the area’s early settlements, which included immigrant farms and family ranches. Bocce ball courts, a community garden and nature hikes bring residents together and reflect the relaxed charm of Southern California, home to a storied way of life.
