              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: I live in Sioux Falls, SD, but have several family members who live in the California desert. I chose to buy a home in La Quinta as an investment and future retirement home.

              Why the Owner Chose Citrus:
              In addition to having family who live here and the obvious mild winter temperatures, I chose the desert because I love the fact that there is NO WIND, NO BUGS, AND NO HUMIDITY.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I enjoy hiking, biking, playing golf and tennis and I have access to all of these activities within minutes of our home. The Silverrock golf course, which is conveniently located across the street from the Citrus, is a gorgeous public course which hosted the Bob Hope Classic for several years. Our home is conveniently located to shopping (Ralphs, Costco,Trader Joes, Lowe's, Home Depot), golf apparel/equipment shops, and many fabulous restaurants just minutes away.
