New Community Alert: Esperanza in Ontario, California

Active adult homebuyers in Southern California now have a new community to explore: Esperanza.

Esperanza, a newly built 55+ community, is garnering lots of attention from buyers looking for beautiful and contemporary single-family homes in a resort-like active adult community. Located in the sunny Los Angeles suburb of Ontario, Esperanza will be selling 464 luxurious homes priced from the high $400s to the mid $500s.


Built by Lennar Homes, Esperanza is a gated master-planned community featuring three collections of luxurious single-story homes with open, modern layouts and upscale finishes. Homes in each of the three communities (Vivir, Tejara, and Modena) will feature single-story living in a variety of sizes and floor plans. Home sizes will range from 1,381 to 2,135 square feet, and most homes will offer two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an attached two-car garage.

Along with included solar energy, homes will feature Lennar Home’s “Everything’s Included” program, which provides standard high-end upgrades at no additional cost. Lennar also designed the homes in accordance with their “Thoughtful Design” program, which includes useful home features designed with the lifestyle needs of 55+ buyers in mind, such as wider hallways and doorways, extra lighting, and lower appliance design.


Besides the beautiful, modern homes, potential homebuyers are attracted to Esperanza’s planned resort-like amenities and gorgeously manicured grounds. The community boasts a 9,000-square-foot clubhouse with activity rooms, a fitness center, a catering kitchen and bar, and group exercise rooms, among other offerings. Outdoors, residents will have access to a sparkling beach-entry swimming pool, a spa, cabanas, a covered patio and barbecue area, fire pits, an outdoor kitchen, pickleball and bocce ball courts, and numerous walking and biking trails. An on-site lifestyle director will be working to help residents stay social and entertained with planned club activities, social events, and group outings.


Esperanza has an ideal location in the heart of Southern California’s Inland Empire—an area popular with active adults looking to settle down. The area is peaceful and offers a serene natural ambiance while still being close to exciting metropolitan areas. Ontario is less than an hour’s drive from Downtown Los Angeles, and it’s close enough to make a day trip of San Diego or Palm Springs. Longer trips are convenient too, with Ontario International Airport just a quick drive away, and Los Angeles International Airport about 50 minutes away.

Ontario boasts plenty of warm weather and sunny days, making outdoor living a popular lifestyle. Luckily, there are plenty of outdoor recreation opportunities to be had near Esperanza, including the Red Hill Golf Club and Whispering Lakes Golf Course. Westwind Park and Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park are also nearby, offering walking, hiking, and biking trails. With two hospitals close by, shopping and dining plazas in the area, and a multitude of recreational opportunities and parks, Esperanza residents won’t need to travel far to have their everyday needs fulfilled.

The grand opening at Esperanza takes place Saturday, October 19th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, or to check out the floor plans and models, head to our Esperanza page.
