Neighborhoods: In keeping with the visual openness and natural harmony that characterizes Santaluz, the distinction between individual neighborhoods has been softened. A light hand has been used to honor the intrinsic beauty of Santaluz, while creating a village where homes, gardens, trails, nature preserves, winding streets, a Village Green and a private, Rees Jones golf course are all designed to give Santaluz residents a common community identity. Inspired by a unique architectural vision, the village's neighborhoods reveal an array of distinct home styles, many of which are single-story. The limited distribution of the homes throughout Santaluz, less than 850 residences, allows for ample open space between homes with an average of just one residence per four acre.
