J & J Ranch (Moraga Adobe)

J & J Ranch is a proposed subdivision of an approximately 20-acre site into 13 single-family home sites. Preservation of the historic Moraga Adobe, built by Joaquin Moraga, is a critical component of the proposed subdivision.

The property is in the Del Rey neighborhood of south Orinda on a hill backing up to the Moraga Country Club between Del Rey Elementary School and MiramonteHigh School. The proposed entrance to the subdivision is from the portion of Donna Maria Way accessed from El Camino Moraga.

J & J Ranch is named after Joaquin Moraga and his cousin Juan Bernal, recipients in 1835 of the Mexican land grant for the area.
