"Aliso Viejo at its best"

The Kensington community of Aliso Viejo is representative of the quality neighborhoods that have sprouted up all over the city in just the last 20 years. A gated community, Kensington offers privacy and security in a hillside setting at the western edge of town. My last visit to this community was with a friend who purchased her home, new, in 2000. I was amazed to learn that the homes in this area, all large (2,500 to 3,400 square feet) have held their value do well even in the face of the blanket declines in the county.

There is no homeowners association and there are no community pools. Still, all of the properties are well manicured and the neighborhood exemplifies that obvious pride that the homeowners take in their gated community. My friend couldn’t stop talking about the friendliness of her neighbors and the cohesiveness of the families in and around her street.

Sitting at the corner of Wood Canyon and Park Place, Kensington has quick and easy access to the main amenities that Aliso Viejo offeres. It’s a quick 5 minutes to Aliso Viejo Town Center where all of her shopping needs are met by Ralphs, WalMart . The center includes the expansive Edwards Theater complex as well as an eclectic selection of dining options.

Just 5 minutes down Wood Canyon and she’s at the gateway of Aliso Viejo Regional Park and its many trails. She often stops in at the beautiful campus of Soka University for a hike or run around the campus. The 73 Toll Road is just 8 minutes a way which provides easy access to all other points of Orange County.
