Ladera Ranch is a census-designated city in Orange County outside of San Juan Capistrano, Mission Viejo, and Rancho Santa Margarita. It is 4,000 acres of a master-planned highly affluent community.
The development is divided into nine "villages" with ten or more neighborhoods in each village. Zillow's data through January 31, 2018 reports that the average home value is $813,000, having increased 3.9 percent over the last year and with a prediction that it will rise 1.4 percent in the coming year. The average rent price is $3,400, higher than the Los Angeles-Anaheim-Long Beach-Metro Area median of $3,000.
Zillow reports that there are seven primary and secondary schools in the Capistrano Unified School District. The highest rated schools are Capistrano Valley High School with a rating of “9” and Carl Hankey Middle School (Public • Grades 6-8) with a rating of “8.” The Ladera Ranch School has both an elementary school and a middle school on the same campus. Private schools within a short distance are Santa Margarita Catholic High School, St. Margaret's Academy, and J. Serra Catholic School. In close proximity are Soka University of America in Aliso Viejo and Saddleback College in Mission Viejo.
The Covenant Hills village is the only gated community. It is closed to the public but is accessible to all card-carrying residents. Five of the nine villages have clubhouses, and there are playgrounds in each village. Hiking and biking trails connect to Doheny Beach. There are 18 community parks, a skate park, a water park, a dog park, six pools in neighborhoods, miles of running and biking trails, and shopping districts.
The annual 4 July Celebration has a 10k/5k race, a community parade, and the park set up like a carnival with activities, inflatables, arts and crafts, and baking contests. In the afternoon a band plays on a stage until dark when a 30-minute fireworks display ends the day.
They also hold a Movie Night, Summer Concerts, Festivals in the Spring and Fall, a Family Campout, a Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony with a visit from Santa, and more. Four-legged friends have a Bark, Biscuits and Brew celebration, and there are events partnering with local vendors and charities.
