The City of Orange is right at the center of Orange County and in the middle of it all. What makes Orange so special is how it combines such a rich history with modern amenities to create a truly wonderful community.
The history of Orange is everywhere you look, and homebuyers are always taken by the quaint homes and distinctive neighborhoods of Old Town Orange. Many of these houses are in the National Register of Historic Places. A walk through the Orange Plaza Circle is like taking a step back in time, yet there are just as many new businesses there as the ones that have been there for decades. Watson’s Diner, Felix and the Army-Navy Store are a few of the longtime staples and then there are many great newer shops and restaurants to enjoy
As interesting as Old Town Orange is, there’s a lot more to the city as it spreads to the west, north and east into the foothills. Here, you’ll find the more modern developments mixed in with some older homes to offer a wide variety of housing options. The hilltop neighborhoods represent exceptional luxury while other areas present more affordable single-family homes.
The schooling is excellent throughout Orange, highlighted by the continued growth of Chapman University in the heart of town. There are multiple hospitals located in the city, including St. Joseph, the UCI Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC). When it comes to shopping and dining, Orange has everything you need. The Block of Orange is massive while The Village at Orange has been recently renovated to offer a more modern setting without losing its classic charm.
Whether you desire to live in one of Orange’s older homes and quaint neighborhoods or you prefer something newer and more luxurious, you’ll find what you are looking for in this dynamic city. It is centrally located in Orange County and the real estate market is always growing and evolving just like the town itself. You’ll be hard pressed to find a city with more character than Orange!
