Space Is The Magic Word For New Home Buyers At Mirador in San Juan Capistrano

Nov 25th 2015
San Juan Capistrano, CA—Brandt and Lori Anderson had the classic reason to find a new home when they began their house hunting. “With the birth of our third child, we knew we needed a little more space,” said Brandt.


The Andersons found that space indoors and out at Mirador in Rancho San Juan, by Woodbridge Pacific Group. They made their move to Mirador in May.

The second and final neighborhood of Rancho San Juan in San Juan Capistrano, Mirador’s enclave location features spectacular views, and home sites that are a minimum of 11,500 square feet—a rarely available expanse in Orange County. “We have a real yard, the kind of space you might have found in California 20 years ago,” said Brandt. “Today, you can find it by moving to another state, yet we have it right here, close to our previous home in Ladera Ranch.”

Mirador’s one- and two-story designs provide approximately 3,763 to 5,368 square feet of living space, 4 to 5 bedrooms and 3-1/2 to 6-1/2 baths. All homes include four-car garages. Pricing is from the $1 millions, and those on Mirador’s pre-approved Priority List enjoy first purchase opportunities. Please call 949-248-7900 or email Mirador@WoodbridgePacific.com.

Home size, its location within Orange County, and its design and value all counted with Brandt and Lori as they considered their choices. “We found the price shockingly good for this kind of space, both for the home itself, and with the homesite,” said Brandt. “There’s a lot to like at Mirador.”

Brandt and Lori picked Residence Three, which provides 4,071 square feet of living space that includes a downstairs office and media room, an upstairs teen room/play space and 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. It also accommodates 4 cars, in two garages, “The divided bay design is great,” said Brandt. “We get the capacity without sacrificing the architecture at the front of our home.”

A special plus for Lori and Brandt is WPG’s signature Capistrano Room, which is price-included with every Mirador home. This attached, covered patio is stylishly finished with a fireplace and disappearing Nano doors, and supplies 373 to 574 square feet of indoor/outdoor space, depending on plan.

“Finding this space was huge for us in choosing Mirador,” said Brandt. “We enjoy our Capistrano Room every day, and like how it relates both to our yard and to the open space inside—the kitchen and family room.”

Mirador buyers will discover many distinctions with each of the Mirador floorplans. Varied layout configurations address diverse households, and room options allow buyers to further personalize their new home. Among these are casitas, offices, media rooms, game rooms, twin suites and home gyms, depending on plan choice.

In addition to its appealing and functional design, the Andersons praised the quality of their new home at Mirador. “Finishes and details matter, and we appreciate the materials Woodbridge Pacific Group used in our new home,” said Brandt. “We also liked finding such high quality workmanship.”

Work commutes are no problem for the Andersons. A software developer, Lori finds her drive to Irvine very feasible from Rancho San Juan. Brandt has it even easier; his work as an accountant is from home.

Situated in the hills of San Juan Capistrano, Rancho San Juan is a gated enclave community that features some 205 acres of open space as a private community park. Direct access to the San Juan Capistrano trail system puts equestrian activities, nature walks, hiking and bicycling within easy reach.

Residents are just minutes from historic downtown San Juan Capistrano and its dining, shopping and cultural life. Mirador is within the Capistrano Unified School District, and close to numerous private schools.

“As Lori and Brandt discovered, Mirador is simply the most exceptional new home value in South Orange County,” said Pam Johnson, Mirador sales counselor. “We invite shoppers to experience Mirador for themselves, and to act soon, as we are now in our concluding sales release.”
