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.
The homes among Santa Rosa Plateau real estate offer unparalleled views of the Santa Ana Mountains, a comfortable climate moderated by the winds off the Pacific, which is just 15 miles away, proximity to the beautiful Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve, and access to the acclaimed Murrieta public schools. But it’s the homes themselves that make Santa Rosa Plateau real estate so desirable. Many of the Plateau’s luxury homes feature horse facilities, sprawling floor plans which incorporate courtyards, gardens, and water features, private pools, spa facilities, fitness rooms, fully fenced and gated lots with integrated security systems, and free-standing guest properties for your visiting friends and relatives.
Living on the Santa Rosa Plateau offers both privacy and if you choose to participate, a host of activities to socialize with your neighbors. The annual Plateau 4th of July celebration starts with a large parade through the streets of La Cresta. The parade is made up of horses, floats, custom cars and tractors, all decorated in festive red, white & blue and ends with a neighborhood cookout featuring horse riding exhibitions and a children’s talent show.
The Santa Rose Plateau Riding Club also hosts many activities. Group trail rides are a great way to enjoy nature, learn the local trails and meet your neighbors. Non-riders also join the club and enjoy attending the monthly Riding Club potluck dinners hosted by a club member. The annual Riding Club Christmas Party is a formal dinner with dancing held at Bear Creek County Club.
