Something for everyone.

Gavilán is The Ranch’s brand for homes, neighborhoods, amenities, and events exclusively designed for residents ages 55+ to enjoy. It comes to life throughout Esencia and Sendero (our first village on The Ranch) in a variety of destinations, including a clubhouse, pools, parks, and open-air retreats.

Gavilán residents also enjoy access to all other amenities throughout The Ranch. That means Gavilán residents can spend the morning in their own resort-style pool, and in the afternoon, meet up with their grandkids at any one of the all-ages amenities on The Ranch.
