Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We built our home in 2007. Now that our girls are grown, we would like to share our little piece of paradise with others!

Why the Owner Chose Murrieta:
We chose to live here upon visiting Kentucky. After many years of living in Orange County, we discovered La Cresta - truly a best kept secret in Southern California!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
All properties are a minimum of 5 acres. Oak trees, vineyards, and country living abound. Bring your cowboy boots and your cowboy hat and enjoy our unique lifestyle! The annual barn dance is in September, the Taste of La Cresta is in June, and the Garden Tour is in April. 4th of July parade in front of house. Wildlife is abundant, and if you like to bird-watch, this is the place to be! Absolutely quiet and private, yet family/neighbor friendly. One day you can hike out to the waterfalls. One day you can ride horses or a mountain bike, or just go for a stroll... Have a swim, sit in the jacuzzi with a glass of wine and soak up the wonderful california sunshine! Your dogs will love running in our huge completely fenced 5.25 acres!
