"A family place with all of the trimmings"

I had the pleasure of attending a dinner at the home of one of my colleagues who lives on Woodswallow Lane located in one of the Laguna Audubon developments in Aliso Viejo. The location is as about ideal as it can be with the nearby Toll Road and 133 Highway that can take you to all parts of Orange County in a hurry. More remarkable was its setting right up against the Laguna Wilderness Park which offered scenic backdrop to this suburban neighborhood.

The houses, built around 1990, are somewhat cookie-cutter but very neat and charming, with well manicured yards. It is very much a family oriented neighborhood and the community offers a lot in the way of resources and activities that would attract young families. The streets are unusually wide for an newer Orange County neighborhood as are the sidewalks which lends a sense of safety for the kids.

I was there just after the 4th of July and I can tell you that this street is full of very patriotic people or they just love going all out on holidays – or both. My colleague confirmed that the neighborhood loves to deck the halls during the holidays.

Having lived in Aliso Viejo, I was familiar with the proximity of all of the shopping venues. This house is about half way between the Aliso Viejo Town Center, with just about everything you could want, and the Laguna Hills Mall. The Irvine Spectrum is just 15 minutes up Highway 133.

They can't say enough about the quality of schools and the overall safety of the neighborhood. Much of Aliso Viejo is recently developed so it has been very well planned with state-of-the-art infrastructure - all readily apparent in this beautiful neighborhood.
