The Santa Rosa Plateau is a unique geography where the counties of Orange, San Diego and Riverside meet. Click here to see it on Google maps.
The Plateau includes six home-owner communities: La Cresta, La Cresta Highlands, Santa Rosa West, The Trails at Santa, Meadow Oaks and Tenaja. Many people refer to the entire Plateau as “La Cresta”, but indeed it is more than that.
Most of the communities are Property Owners Associations (POAs). Tenaja is a County Service Districts (CSD). All are in unincorporated Riverside County, with a Murrieta CA postal zip code. There is no commercial zoning. Parcels are at least 5 acres, with residential zoning RA5/10/20 or RR5/10/20.
All are surrounded by the Cleveland National Forest, the Ecological Reserve, and US Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, making us an oasis of ranches nestled within vast amounts of land.
