The historic St. Michael’s Abbey, a 33-acre campus nestled in the foothills of South Orange County, is on the market. The unique listing, which is being handled by The Hoffman Company’s Justin Esayian, comes in advance of long-time residents, the Norbertine Fathers of Orange, preparing to relocate into a new home.
The move is expected sometime in early 2021, which will open up this serene rural property with partial ocean views to the right buyers for a new purpose.
Esayian says, “The property is truly one-of-a-kind. It not only captures the last of old rural Orange County, it’s also within 10 miles of shopping amenities, entertainment and outdoor recreation, including state, regional and local parks.”
Founded in 1961 by seven priests, St. Michael’s Abbey now hosts nearly 50 priests, 35 seminarians and 64 secondary students. That exponential growth has prompted the abbey to expand its campus on a new 300-acre property in Silverado Canyon.
