The Village of Montecito is Otay Ranch’s newest construction! Perfect for families looking for a safe, master-planned neighborhood.
There’s a New Master-Planned Community in East Chula Vista… and You Need to See It!
When you imagine the perfect family-friendly neighborhood, what do you imagine? Do you see lovely houses lining safe streets? Do you imagine lush parks and relaxing recreational areas? How about shopping centers and good schools? If these amenities speak to your imagination, then Otay Ranch–and its new community Village of Montecito–is for you.
Since 1999, Otay Ranch has been ranked one of the best and top-selling communities in all of San Diego County. Its master-planned neighborhoods and excellent schools have attracted young families from around the country. Throughout the years, we’ve watched the 5,300-acre Otay Ranch expand into new neighborhoods and subdivisions, which is why we were excited to hear about their latest venture, Village of Montecito. Like all of Otay Ranch, Village of Montecito’s goal is to become “a vibrant, family-friendly environment where people can live, work, and play within the safe streets lined with detached homes, townhouses, schools, parks, and shopping centers.”
The Village of Montecito has been in the works for over 14 years. This year (2016) and next year, the Otay Ranch Co. will finalize the neighborhood. According to Otay Ranch officials, Village of Montecito is a 938-acre master-planned community with approximately 2,800 homes, an elementary school, two city parks (totaling 14 acres!), and two commercial area with an estimated total of 250,000 square feet of shopping, entertainment, venues, and community facilities. What more could you ask for!
