La Cresta, California is a place that has it all: mountains, valleys, rivers, and the sweet salt air of the Pacific. Situated in an unincorporated area of Murrieta known as the Santa Rosa Plateau, La Cresta joins other exclusive neighborhoods at the juncture where Orange, Riverside, and San Diego counties meet.
The climate in the area is tempered by the ocean breezes that come wafting through the Santa Ana Mountains, keeping it somewhat cooler than the valley. Though it is within an hours drive of such diverse cities as Palm Springs, San Diego, and Los Angeles, this community is accessible only by a scenic drive through a protected wildlife preserve. Upon entering this community, visitors and residents will find that a private, nature-lover's paradise awaits.
Outdoor recreation is big in an area that is surrounded by wilderness and features five-plus acre tracts of land for every home site. Activities include hiking, horseback riding, golf, boating, fishing, and plenty of opportunities to spot some of the most beautiful wildlife this country has to appreciate.
Though La Cresta is sheltered, it is not isolated. After leaving the main community, residents are close to major shopping, entertainment, and dining venues only minutes away in the cities of Murrieta and Temecula.
La Cresta is also close to beaches, both ocean and freshwater, and some of the best camping spots in Southern California. It is surrounded by the natural beauty of the Cleveland National Forest and the Santa Rosa Ecological Reserve, with breathtaking views of Mount San Jacinto and Mount Palomar all around and glimpses of the Pacific from La Cresta's western-most edge. Nearby towns offer movie theaters, museums, and music venues for indoor entertainment.
Sales prices of recently sold homes range from the mid $500,000 range to a five-bedroom home listed for over $1,000,000. Locals are a unique mixture of Westerners who have lived on the land for generations, professionals, artists, and just regular folks.
The community is served by Cole Canyon Elementary, Thompson Middle School, and Murrieta Valley High School. Emergency services are provided to residents by Riverside County and state-of-the-industry medical facilities and modern hospitals only 10 minutes away in Murrieta.
