It includes 887 units with a five-acre baseline, featuring single-family dwellings on about 60% of the parcels.

La Cresta is a magnificent equestrian farm and ranch neighborhood with a minimum of 5-acre estates and an unmatched way of life. Even though it's just a 15-minute drive from Murrieta, a nearby town, La Cresta is a rural location comprising a distinctive montage of families, domestic animals, ranching creatures, and nature coexisting and nurturing each other in this vibrant community.
The people who live in La Cresta cultivate grapes for the nearby vineyards, and some even make their own wines. You will get lots of chances to taste regional wines, such as those from Temecula, and choose your absolute favorite.
Dining, Shopping, & Entertainment
One of the best places to dine at while in La Cresta is Los Reyes Mexican
. Once you descend the slope from La Cresta and cross directly over the freeway, it is directly across. They have a beautiful outdoor terrace where they serve excellent margaritas and have been serving sit-down Mexican meals for years.
Things to Do
La Cresta is the perfect place to live if you are outdoorsy. Enrollment in the Santa Rosa Plateau Riding Club, which hosts monthly potluck meals, a yearly Harvest Dinner Dance, monthly trail excursions, and other special events, is one option for horse lovers. You do not need to ride to be a member. Indeed, a sizable portion of the club's members are non-riders that genuinely love being among horse people.
Ladies' luncheons, which occur each month, are also a huge thing in La Cresta. Such pot-luck luncheons, which often alternate between volunteer houses on the Plateau, are open to all Plateau ladies and their guests. They offer a chance to get to meet a variety of women from the locality. The joyous and exquisitely cooked Holiday Luncheon traditionally marks the end of each year.
You should also take some time to check out the nature reserve in the neighborhood. The 8000-acre Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve
is only 90 seconds away from the front entry to La Cresta. Follow paths to the historical adobes, Tenaja Falls
, and the legendary Vernal Pools. Besides, the Summer Concert Series primarily features cover bands and is behind the Visitors Center on Clinton Keith, which is growing incredibly popular.
