Spotlight on Anza

Just a 45-minute drive from Palm Desert and about 30 minutes outside of the artisan mountain retreat of Idyllwild, Anza offers an incredible escape for those seeking privacy, space, and striking surroundings while maintaining relatively close proximity to the amenities of the Coachella Valley. This is a community that epitomizes a rural but not remote way of life.

Anza is cradled by scenic mountains and offers a semi-arid climate at elevation, setting the stage to experience all 4 seasons in moderation and with plenty of opportunities to get out and explore. With a population of just over 3,000 people according to the 2010 census, Anza has small town charm and a big emphasis on nature, making it the perfect mountain retreat to enjoy peace and quiet. Adjoining Anza-Borrego State Park and the nearby Pacific Crest Trail, outdoor adventure awaits via hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, or even using ATVs in designated areas. Also close by, Lake Hemet is on the way toward Idyllwild and offers camping, fishing, and more outdoor sporting activities.

A perfect example of the quality of life available in this mountain paradise is summarized at an incredible Tuscan estate listed by Greg Leonard. Perched on an elevated 10-acre lot at nearly 4500 feet above sea level with a southwest orientation and boasting a working vineyard, Mediterranean-inspired architecture, and modern amenities and technology, this home delivers a truly one-of-a-kind, peaceful lifestyle in an unrivaled setting. With more open land ready for development, the possibilities are truly endless, including space for future buildings and structures, such as a guest house or casita, artisan studio, a helicopter pad, or anything else your imagination can dream. Additionally, another parcel of contiguous 9+ acres is available for purchase. The property adjoins Anza-Borrego State Park, guaranteeing open space, surroundings, and infinite views.
