The Final Collection of Estate Lots in Shady Canyon Nearing Its Conclusion

Since its debut five years ago, Shady Canyon’s® collection of estate lots has presented only the fortunate few with the rare opportunity to own a legacy home, and now with just less than 10 estate lots available, the opportunity to be a part of this very special place is nearing its conclusion.

“Shady Canyon is one of the best kept secrets on The Irvine Ranch®,” said Suzanne Maddalon, senior director of marketing and research for Irvine Community Development Company LLC, an affiliate of The Irvine Company LLC. “Since its debut, Shady Canyon has attracted a certain caliber of resident. These are people seeking more out of life than just a place to dwell. They long for a place of natural discovery, a home defined by rich architectural styling, and a living environment of softly spoken prestige.”

When it comes to architectural and design elements, the planners of Shady Canyon exercised discretion and restraint to create enclaves that complement the area’s natural landscape. In an effort to showcase the rich rugged terrain, designers chose architectural styles that would seamlessly meld into sprawling hillsides and ridgelines. With a majestic expanse of 16,000 acres of unspoiled preserve forming a breathtaking backdrop, the homes themselves seem native to the land, in styles that draw their inspiration from Provence, Tuscan, Adobe Ranch, Santa Barbara and Andalusian architectural palettes.

At the heart of Shady Canyon is the private, 300-acre Tom Fazio Golf Course. The artfully landscaped course features 18 dramatic holes sure to challenge players of all skill levels, yet the sprawling design remains respectful of the sycamore groves, boulder formations and land contours indigenous to Orange County’s coastal canyons.

The private Shady Canyon Golf Club® offers members access to a lifestyle that makes pampering a priority. With its immaculate fitness, swim and dining amenities, the 53,000 square-foot Main Clubhouse boasts elegant appointments and entertainment venues where members and their friends and families can relax and take in the expansive views of the emerald fairways below.

Shady Canyon is a place that nurtures the mind, soul and body. Athletes and weekend warriors alike will delight in the amenities of the Fitness and Swim Club, the focal point for health and recreation for the members of Shady Canyon Golf Club. Situated to provide panoramas of canyon and course, the approximately 6,700 square-foot Santa Barbara colonial-style building includes the finest conditioning equipment, as well as posh poolside amenities. Highlights include traditional cabanas situated to capture spectacular views; an expert fitness staff; a Junior Olympic Swimming pool, spa, children’s wading pool; and state-of-the-art steam room. In addition to these members-only amenities, Shady Canyon offers a Tennis and Swim Center that is open to all community residents.
