Shady Canyon Custom Home Sales Over the Past 7 Years

Shady Canyon Custom Homes in Irvine, CA

One of my favorite neighborhoods is Shady Canyon in Irvine. For most people who visit the neighborhood, its a no-brainer – it’s a gorgeous place with sublime homes. For me though, I was a detractor before the place was built… my appreciation for the neighborhood took time.

I lived in Turtle Rock for a few years and the open space where Shady Canyon is now was where I would walk and where I would go when I needed a bit of wilderness, stat. When they started developing the land, my first reaction was “Please, No! Don’t ruin all of that open space!” Cows used to amble by, crows would gather in the old towering bee-filled sycamores and dusty trails crisscrossed the land… In time, though, planners dreamed, draftsmen drew and the earthmovers came. I watched as the rough forms of development took shape, new paths were carved around old creek beds, trees were moved into new groupings and home pads were cut and prepped…

A year or so went by and the gates went up, new home sales started and prospective residents, neighbors and all would-be comers got a glimpse of what had been crafted. I remember seeing the neighborhood for the first time and being truly amazed at what they had done. It’s easy to throw off a word like “amazing”; we do it when someone gives us a bite of nice cake and we look at them and say “mmm – amazing!” but what I mean in the last sentence was real amazement. I was ready to write the place off as a gated blemish but for the first time in my experience, I felt that the natural space had been improved upon; nature had been elevated. Vistas were framed from new vantage points, rocks moved into aesthetically pleasing positions, new trails – private and public – cut through the area and a high temple to golf had been erected. The architecture was right for the place. I had a new found respect for the planners and developers – namely, The Irvine Company – who had managed to take what was a raw beautiful space and transform it into something that was better than it was before… which is tough to do when competing with raw natural beauty.

This was all, of course, before I was in the real estate business; had I been an agent at that point, I probably would have started out with a different perspective. At that point, though, I was just judging it for the aesthetic qualities it had, not yet really understanding the place it would have in the real estate market.

Today, Shady Canyon is even better. The trees have grown in; the bougainvillaea has clambered up and over gates & archways; private fountains bubble behind walled courtyards. And true to the original vision, the homes sit artfully in the landscape as if they have been there for a long time.

I do sell real estate so I thought I would segue at this point into a bit of business – the sales of custom homes in the neighborhood from 2005 through 2012. The market has gone through some pretty wild gyrations the past 7 1/2 years and you can see those swings in the number of homes sold and the prices they sold for on a year-to-year basis. Last year was a good year for home owners there and this year should prove to be even better.
