Orchard Hills is a new community located within the Lomas de Santiago Hills in the Irvine Ranch. The unique village plan consists of four distinct residential neighborhoods, three of which are gated. Tree-lined streets feature homes in Tuscan, Provence, Northern Italian, and Formal Spanish architectural styles.

Over 500 acres will remain working avocado orchards, and each area has been crafted to make the most of the land’s attributes—the groves, hill forms, ridgelines, open space, and reservoir. A stately boulevard serves as the main entrance and ties the neighborhoods together. An integrated network of roadways, bike trails, and open space unify the village and add connectivity to adjacent schools, shopping and employment at the Tustin Marketplace, and recreation areas such as Irvine Lake and Limestone Canyon Regional Park.

Village parks include ball fields, sport courts, picnic areas, children’s playgrounds, and resort-style swimming pools.
