Exceptional Living



Esencia, a community built around the essential aspects of nature, vitality, and balance in the heart of South Orange County. The essence of life we embrace here is characterized by natural beauty, a relaxed lifestyle and a passion for recreation and indoor/outdoor living. As the newest village located within The Ranch in Rancho Mission Viejo, Esencia inhabits a prominent ridgeline overlooking foothills, orchards, pastures, stands of live oak, canyons and creeks. It’s a breathtaking panorama of ranch scenery, ideal for capturing afternoon sunlight and ocean breezes.

At Esencia Norte Apartment Homes, we offer beautifully designed one, two and three bedroom apartment homes with premium hardwood style flooring, two-toned paint, sleek modern appliances and generous closet space. Within The Ranch community, shopping and dining at Sendero Marketplace and local schools are all just minutes away.

By choosing Esencia Norte, you will have exclusive access to community amenities such as a resort-style swimming pool, resident clubhouse and game room, outdoor lounge, tech lounge, fitness center and laundry care center. Residents of Esencia Norte also have access to all Rancho Mission Viejo village amenities including community and fitness centers, swimming pools, and parks.
