Tenaja, named for the road that leads into it, is close to the communities of Murrieta and Temecula and offers easy access to Interstate 15. The scenery that surrounds your Tenaja real estate is nothing short of spectacular. As you travel down Tenaja Road, allow yourself some extra time to take in the scenery and the beauty that surrounds you, open rolling green meadows dotted with stately ancient oaks.
Beautiful Tenaja is situated in the heart of the Southern California wine region and offers easy access to more than 20 award-winning wineries where tours, wine tasting and fine dining await you. The climate is typical of that in a wine-producing region – the days are warm and dry and the evenings are cool. The climate has been compared to that of the famous Napa Valley region where Tenaja and the other Santa Rosa Plateau communities enjoy the cooler coastal breezes perched about 2,000 feet in the foothills just 12 miles East of San Clemente.
Producing fine wine is not the only ideal activity for this climate. A Tenaja home provides a perfect base for those who appreciate the best that outdoor living has to offer. Several championship golf courses including the Jack Nicklaus designed course at Bear Creek Golf Club and the new Cross Creek course set in the natural beauty of De Luz are located in the surrounding area, within easy reach. Spending a day hiking or bicycling in the unspoiled beauty of Tenaja land and the nearby Santa Rosa Nature Preserve is sure to be an activity you will enjoy many times. The 8,300 acre reserve has miles of hiking trails for one to take in the rare vernal pools or trek up to the Old Adobe that housed the cowboys of yesteryear when this entire plateau was used for herding cattle. Horses and their owners will love a Tenaja home for its miles of dedicated trails that connect to the Sylvan Meadows trails to the East and the even larger network of trails in the Cleveland Forest to the West.
