Coto de Caza, located in inland Orange County just east of Rancho Santa Margarita and Mission Viejo, is a guard-gated community bordered on the north, east, and south by Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park. It is a 15 to 20 minute drive to the 5 freeway using Oso Parkway, but to access Irvine, Tustin, North Lake Forest, or the 91, the 241 Toll Road is a viable option.
Coto de Caza is 8 square miles comprised of 60 separate subdivisions. Homes range from condos and townhomes to horse ranches and elaborate estates. Despite being one of the oldest planned-communities in Orange County, vacant lots are still available to be purchased.
Residents of Coto de Caza have access to some of the finest community amenities, including the Coto de Caza Golf and Racquet Club; an exclusive 36-hole country club. The club also houses an impressive fitness facility, relaxing spa and snack bar. Additionally, there is a second private club, boutique hotel, and a general store tucked behind the gates.
Sports fields, tennis courts, and scenic trails that lead to the majestic Cleveland National Forest are just a few more of the options available to residents of this luxurious community.
Students from Coto de Caza attend Capistrano Unified schools. There are many nearby choices for private education as well.
