Vista Santa Rosa; Eastern Coachella Valley. When people come to our beautiful Coachella Valley, most of them know the Desert cities named Palm Springs, La Quinta, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, Cat City, Indio, and some even know about Thermal and Coachella in our East Valley. Vista Santa Rosa, an unincorporated area of approx. 20 sq. miles in size, is a special part of our Eastern Coachella Valley, and it is a rare occurrence that visitors know anything at all about the unincorporated Policy Area called Vista Santa Rosa.
The VSR (Vista Santa Rosa), community was recognized by the County Board of Supervisors in 2001. Community boundaries extend from Avenue 50 on the North, Monroe on the West, Harrison St. on the East, and Avenue 66 on the South. VSR is adjacent to the Cities of Thermal, Coachella, Indio and La Quinta. It is also connected via trails to Lake Cahuilla, and Torres-Martinez Tribal Lands. The area is an important producer of Date crops, and Rural Residential ad uses are prevalent, with an emphasis on Equestrian Lifestyles. (Courtesy of Co. of Riverside General Plan)
Within the Vista Santa Rosa Policy Area, the minimum Lot size in the Agricultural designation is 5 acres with 2 dwelling units/Acre, and 5 horses/acre. The Community Development Overlay area allows for conversion of farm land to other uses, with an overal density range within this overlay area of 1-3 dwelling units/acre. It is an incredibly beautiful part of our Coachella Valley, which will remain largely Equestrian and Ag, with thoughtfully approved areas of larger density developments. It is also attracting buyers! Here are examples of some of the land/Equestrian Listings available today:
- Organic Date Farm grounds: Approx. $800,000 for 20 Acres to approx. $23 million for 1,483 Acres
- Vista Santa Rosa Land Parcels: Range from approx. $32,000/acre for raw land to approx. $110,000/acre for farm land nearer to La Quinta.
- Equestrian Homes: Hard to find! Take the tour of 51600 Jackson St. below. $1,649,000 this 5 acre farm has a custom home and guest quarters. Fixers can be found for approx. $500,000 on an acre of land to a custom estate on 20 Acres, listed at $5,9 million!
Is Indio, California the next “hub” of the Coachella Valley? It certainly feels like it may be! When I first came to Indio, in the mid 1980’s, the jingle for the city went something like “It’s the hub-bub of the valley…it’s Indio, Indio, In-D-O” That about knocked us down because the only people that even knew where Indio was, were the Polo Players, or locals. The City of Festivals, Indio, offers some of the best remaining Land Values in the Coachella Valley. Because Land is still relatively cheap, Equestrian Estates, and Residential options are also less pricey than in the central and Western Valley cities. [Read more…]

51600 Jackson St., Indio, CA., $1,649,000 I rarely get a Listing that is as timely as this piece of desert Land. Season has not hit yet, and the Coachella Valley Equestrians haven’t arrived in the Valley yet. What a beautiful piece of the Desert! Desert Land parcels that are as small as this one, at approx. 5 Acres are hard to find. What sets it apart, is that there are TWO homes on it! One is a custom home built in 2008, and the other is an income producing Guest home. The LOCATION is what really makes this property a standout..approx. 1.5 miles from the Coachella Valley Music Festival! Why is that so important? Read on, then give me a call at 760-285-3578 for your personal viewing.
