Expansive views of the hills overlooking San Juan Capistrano will be the backdrop for the new homesites at Cortesa by Shea Homes. Situated on the hilltops of Esencia at Rancho Mission Viejo, this exclusive 55+ collection of single-level residences will debut this fall, offering superbly tailored homes ranging from approximately 2,325 to 3,004 square feet, with 2 to 3 bedrooms, and 2.5 baths. Pricing is anticipated to start from the mid $700,000s.

“The combination of magnificent view homesites and the thoughtful designs of Cortesa create an ideal opportunity for 55+ buyers,” said Karen Ellerman, Director of Sales for Shea Homes. “The single-level designs cater to buyers in many ways, satisfying their desires for comfort, elegance and free flowing interconnection between indoor and outdoor living spaces. We are very excited to be offering new homesites and those interested should come and visit our booth at The Canyon House this Sunday, September 25th to find out more information about these spectacular view sites!”

Cortesa’s open space design keeps the flow of natural light and conversation going throughout the main living areas. Spectacular kitchens have both beauty and functionality that includes rich toned cabinetry and sleek countertops plus the latest in energy wise stainless steel appliances. Large islands encourage guests and chef to interact, and offer a casual dining spot for everyday use. That is in addition to dining areas and morning rooms, per floor plan. Plans featuring dens make room for at-home offices, study or, as desired, an optional bedroom.

Throughout the collection, secondary bedrooms feature private baths for the convenience of guests, or to serve as second master suites. The addition of an optional studio/loft presents the possibility of creating a hobby studio, a fun game room, kid’s bunkroom or TV lounge with an upstairs half-bath for convenience. The flexibility of the four distinctive floor plans is just what the buyer ordered, leaving room for personal expression and individual tastes to be explored.

Situated so as to create relaxing outdoor entertainment space, the retreats will also have the boundless dimension of panoramic countryside views.
