Homes in the area may overlook the San Joaquin Reservoir and also can have panoramic views of Saddleback Mountain and coastal Orange County.
Homes in San Joaquin Hills range from executive homes and estate homes with unique landscaping and amenities to high-end townhomes with spectacular views of the inland Newport Coast backcountry. Most homes are part of planned developments, and have been updated with chefs’ kitchens, custom flooring, and mature, well-maintained landscaping. Homeowners’ Association fees vary, ranging from approximately $300 a month to $700 a month.
Many of the streets in San Joaquin Hills are gently-curved residential drives with walkable sidewalks and interesting views. Bike and hiking trails are nearby in several local and regional parks. The area is also easily accessible to Newport Center, shopping, and dining destinations. The adjacent 73 toll road allows quick access to John Wayne Airport and area freeways.
