Luxury Living in Irvine – La Vita at Orchard Hills

September 18th, 2015 by Joe Van Fossen

As a real estate agent working in Irvine, the San Gabriel Valley, and throughout Orange County and surrounding areas, I often have the pleasure of working with out of state and international buyers. Southern California has always been a popular destination for its diverse climate and numerous attractions. We also have a great diversity of residential property, whether you’re looking for a Victorian home in Santa Ana, 20th century Spanish revival in Fullerton, mid-century modern in Orange, or master planned luxury in Irvine; OC has it all and more.

There’s a misconception that Realtors only work with resale properties or “used homes,” but that couldn’t be further from the truth. New construction can be highly desirable to certain buyers and I’m always keeping an eye on what developers are doing across Southern California. Today I’m focusing on one of my favorite newer luxury developments in Irvine, La Vita at The Groves in Orchard Hills.

Orchard Hills is located just north of Northwood Point and is home to working avocado groves, the Orchard Hills Village Center, and nationally recognized Northwood High School. The Groves is a new luxury gated community featuring resort-like amenities, lush parks, and homes from premiere builders starting from the mid $1,000,000s. La Vita is a development by Brookfield homes with a focus on blending indoor and outdoor living with exquisite luxury.

Homes at La Vita will be ready for move-in by the year’s end. They feature floor plans ranging from 3400-4000 square feet, 4-5 bedrooms, and 5-6 bathrooms. They all feature 2-car garages with extra storage space and private 2-4 car driveways.

If you’re interested in La Vita, The Groves, or any new construction home in Orange County, I’d be happy to give you some more information or set up some viewings. Call (714) 584-7154 or email me at
