Orange County Real Estate and Community Information
Rancho Santa Margarita
Rancho Santa Margarita is a newer developing community compared to that of Irvine or Lake Forrest. It has a few Golf Clubs that cater to the leisure activities of the residents within that area. Also, the home prices in that area are reasonable in terms of comparing them to Tustin Ranch or Irvine. The reason for this is that it is more inland. The lake in Santa Margarita is a very nice amenity for residents and for visitors. The lake association rent out paddleboats to lounge around in. Also, the lake is adjacent to the O’Neill Regional Park. There are many shops in that area and it is growing. For those that enjoy the outdoor activities there are numerous trails for bikers and hikers.
