ALISO VIEJO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Recently named the fastest growing public company in Orange County, The New Home Company (NEW HOME) (NYSE: NWHM) announces its first two neighborhoods in the master-planned community of Esencia at Rancho Mission Viejo. A Grand Opening for the model homes at Azure and Cobalt—both located in Esencia’s newest village of NorthWalk—is set for Sunday, November 12, 2017.

Azure is comprised of two-story attached residences with contemporary townhome designs by Bassenian Lagoni Architects. The neighborhood offers a wide array of floorplans ranging from 683 to 1,723 square feet with one to three bedrooms and one to two and one-half baths. An intimate collection of 10 of the smallest homes are priced from the high $300,000s with the remaining 69 residences priced from the mid $400,000s.

Cobalt, also designed by Bassenian Lagoni, showcases a range of three floorplans, many with optional loft spaces rare in similarly sized homes. The residences range from 1,228 to 1,659 square feet with two to three bedrooms and two and one-half baths. Cobalt, featuring a total of 72 paired homes, is priced from the mid $500,000s.

“We’re pleased to present these two neighborhoods of attainably priced homes in a community that has taken its place among the finest in south Orange County,” said Joan Marcus-Colvin, Chief Marketing Officer for NEW HOME. “Azure and Cobalt are ideal for local first-time buyers, empty nesters and growing families whose children will attend nearby schools in the acclaimed Capistrano Unified School District. Both neighborhoods will foster social connectivity and our residents will enjoy all of the recreational amenities that Esencia at Rancho Mission Viejo has to offer.”

Those interested in a new home at Azure are encouraged to visit to register and receive updates on community progress, future events and sales opportunities; and those interested in Cobalt can visit for more information.
