Ravello at Orchard Hills: Where luxury living reaches new heights

by Ada Madigan

With craftsmanship and luxury details expected only in the grandest of homes, the Ravello residences at Orchard Hills immediately welcome you with a sense of elevated living.

One of Ravello’s most appealing features is the blurred line between the indoors and out. Sliding window walls come standard, and floor material is the same inside and out, allowing for the two spaces to seamlessly flow together. It’s perfect for true California-style living.

Here, luxury goes beyond the material, and the nature in which the homes are nestled does some serious heavy lifting. Designer Kathy Schwendimann explains: “Ravello is enveloped in views, and each room’s layout takes that into consideration. We oriented spaces to capitalize on these expansive views.”

While the views are standard, getting down to the details is where the choice in luxury finishes is all yours. A variety of tastes can be met with options extending from traditional shiplap to sleek, contemporary glass stair railings.

In the kitchen, expect a chef-worthy experience with a Wolf range, quartz counters and a roomy walk-in pantry. Off the kitchen sits what Schwendimann calls “a flex-space” that owners can customize to their liking. “The residences at Ravello are yours to customize and where you can prioritize what it is you need. Each plan has something truly special.”

At Irvine’s highest point, Ravello has breathtaking views.
