Valinda is an intimate gated community in San Juan Capistrano, California. It is one of the newer subdivisions of Rancho San Juan. Residents enjoy many luxury amenities, and close proximity to dining, shopping, and entertainment.
Valinda homes were built in 2013 by the Woodbridge Pacific Group. This community is comprised of one and two story homes with lots that are a minimum of 10,000 square feet. The oversized lots were designed to enhance the area’s panoramic views. The homes have a Spanish architectural style, and the floor plans allow for distinctive elevations for a custom look. These estates were built in the lush, rolling hills of the Ortega region.
Amenities in this community include a 1.1-acre park that has basketball courts, tennis courts, picnicking, and playgrounds. There is also access to the San Juan Capistrano Trail system which has biking and hiking trails which lead to the Pacific Ocean. There are 205 acres of open space to explore.
