The Santa Rosa Plateau area is composed of several exclusive communities. Located at the southern end of the Santa Ana Mountains, overlooking the Murrieta valley, the Plateau area boasts some of the finest homes in Murrieta. The Plateau is also home to the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve, a protected environment of about 8,300 acres outside the Murrieta city limits where nature enthusiasts can enjoy biking, hiking, horseback riding, and picnicking.
In the communities of La Cresta, La Cresta Highlands, Santa Rosa West, Santa Rosa Trails, Meadow Oaks, Tejana, Avocado Mesa and Redondo Mesa, you’ll find luxurious Santa Rosa Plateau real estate properties on spacious plots of land in an unmatched semi-rural setting. In the La Cresta area, the natural beauty of the landscape is preserved by a local ordinance that mandates all new homes must be built on at least five acres. Similar rules apply to other Santa Rosa Plateau real estate communities as well. These communities administer themselves in two ways: some are governed by Property Owner’s Associations, some are considered County Service Districts. All Plateau communities are considered to be unincorporated sections of the City of Murrieta, and use Murrieta addresses and zip codes.
