"Ranch Style, "The Ranchos" are Hidden Gem"

The Murrieta Ranchos are located off Washington at Santa Fe, though without identifying signage stating, "Ranchos." The locals know them as the Ranchos, though. These are large, high-ceilinged Ranch style homes on large lots, many craftsman style fronts, and many with views of the Santa Rosa Plateau. The look and feel of the neighborhood is very appealing, with wide streets and sidewalks, large garages (some attached and some detached), within about a half mile (as the crow flies) of Thompson Middle School and Murrieta Valley High School. Way back when they were built, they had some water drainage issues, but this did not seem to dim the demand for them whenever they come on the market. They command higher prices than neighboring tracts and usually sell briskly iwth multiple offers now since the 2005-2012 recession.

Pros Cons
  1. Lovely architecture
  2. Big yards
  3. All single story
  4. Schools
  1. Only single story
  2. Higher prices than other tracts
  • Recommended: Yes
  • Recommendations: If the price point is too high, look to the west to the areas off of Washington at Vineyard/Lemon, or off the intersection at Lilly & Washington, or off Nutmeg, These tracts tend to have lower taxes and no HOA as well.
  • Appearance: well manicured with grass cut, looks uniform, curbs, suburban, trash in yards
