VIEWS in Canyon Crest

Inside the gates of Canyon Crest, (as in much of Mission Viejo,) lush manicured greenbelts abound. There are many single-loaded culdesac streets. Much the community was built on the gently sloping hillside just above Lake Mission Viejo, therefore, several streets boast “lake views.”  Many other homes have beautiful city lights views, and most are oriented to the west- so sunset views are abundant! Still other homes are oriented backing to a greenbelt so homeowners have the enjoyment of the pretty lush landscape, while the homeowner association maintains it!
