Harboring a lifestyle that is becoming increasingly hard to find, the Santa Rose plateau is a community of gentleman ranches and country estates with interconnecting horse trails, oak studded meadows, and gently rolling hills. The Plateau is made up of four associations with slightly different architectural guidelines and they are: La Cresta, La Cresta Highlands, Santa Rosa West, and Tenaja. Perched in the foothills of Murrieta just west of the 15 freeway, the plateau is a gently rolling landscape of meadows, oaks, and seasonal streams. The location, just 17 miles from the coast, assures cooling ocean breezes every afternoon, and yet it's just minutes to town and the freeway. The new homes on the plateau range from modest single story ranch homes of 2.500 square feet, up to homes exceeding 10,000 square feet. Minimum lot size are 5 acres, allowing owners to enjoy guest houses, barns, RV garages, collect car barns, tennis courts, vineyards and more. The homes are currently priced from just under $1 million to over $3 millions and represent one of the best luxury home values in California. Vacant land is available from 5 acres to 20 acres where you can plan and build your dream home on your own. The Walker Advantage Team can help you select a lot, obtain 2- year fixed rate loans and introduce you to quality business. The neighbors living in La Cresta have come from many parts of the country including formerly, rural parts of Orange County that have become too congested. As one recent buyer stated "I had no idea there was a place like this left in Southern California. and it's only an hour to Newport Beach."
