Experience the Power of Change in Rice Ranch Living Transform Your Life

As the new year approaches Rice Ranch Living, we are all looking forward to change. A new year is coming! While we still have challenges ahead of us, making changes, even small ones or a new start can be very empowering. Making resolutions for the new year works for some of us, but that can also backfire if life throws you a curveball, as it did in early 2020. Why not start now? Changing unhelpful habits, starting new practices, or even just committing to paying less attention to things that bring you down can be small starts. And, if you need a bigger change, finding a new job or moving to a new area are actions that will cause ripples of change in your life.

As 2021 gets closer, we can all remember some important points about living life more meaningfully. Here are a few:

  • Home is important, and making that home feel safe and comforting is key. We all need some downtime, time with those we love, and a place to rest and recharge.
  • Getting outside for fresh air can make a world of difference, whether you need a break, some exercise, or just something beautiful to look at.
  • Nourishment is important; taking care of your health is key. Eating well is possible whether you’re supporting local businesses with takeout, grocery shopping, or buying at a local farmers market. And cooking new things also keeps it interesting!
  • Taking time for self-care and feeling good is also smart. Changing your attitude, spending time with yourself and your household members, and loving where you are, are choices you can make.

Loving where you live is easy on California’s Central Coast, with its many aspects of the California lifestyle, but without the hustle and bustle of cities and congestion. Our expansive beaches, top-notch wineries, and endless outdoor activities are like a luxurious vacation right out our front door. At the Meadows and the Groves at Rice Ranch, our new homes are nestled against 580 acres of open space and hiking trails, and within a 30-minute drive to charming towns and vacation spots like Pismo Beach, Santa Ynez Valley and Solvang, Santa Maria Valley, and Wine Country, plus Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo a little further afield.

Our master-planned community in Orcutt offers affordable luxury, including private access to the Summit Club, with a pool, kitchen area, fire pits, pickle ball and bocce courts, and more. Most homes have outdoor spaces, as well as various outdoor areas built into the community. Our large open floor has plenty of rooms perfect for multiple generations, and dedicated space for an office to accommodate your new work-from-home—and learn-from-home—routines. Working from home has long been a desire for many Americans, one that was sometimes seen as not possible. But now, this makes it easier to keep socially distanced, stay safe, and save time and money on a commute.
