Hello all. I have been looking to buy in Temecula or Murrieta (Possibly Wildomar but probably not).

I looked at the Harveston Lake community. I really liked the club house. It was spectacular. The problem I had was the cookie cutter houses with no backyards. So unfortunately I think I need to scratch that off the list. Looked at one open house there and while the home was 2000 s/f it seemed a lot smaller.

So... that being said. Does anyone have recommendations for communities within Temecula or Murrieta that have nice association club houses.. especially for kids.

This is important to me as I grew up going to a club house in Lake Forest Ca, I spent most of my summers there. I would like my kids to be able to have something like that growing up.

I really liked the Harveston lake area. But am wondering if there is anything else that can come close to this? My budget is in the $250k range.

I appreciate any input!

When you talk about having a clubhouse, you're generally talking a larger development. You don't want cookie cutter housing or small lot sizes. Generally you only get one or the other. Paseo Del Sol has a nice clubhouse(or maybe it's Paloma Del Sol, or maybe both), but it's a large development with smaller lot sizes and similar houses. That's par for the course for the area

I agree with PP, for the most part if you would like an association and club house you will be in a tract with cookie cutter homes. More spread out custom homes don't usually have an association, and would be out of the 250k price range.

However, there are definitely neighborhoods that are more spread out than Harveston. I think the Harveston development is beautiful, but very smushed together. Paseo Del Sol, that bhchompy mentioned, is in my opinion one of the nicer developments in town. It's centrally located and has lots of walking paths, green belts, and more than one community pool. It is located off Margarita Rd. between Pauba and De Portola. There should be a good amount of homes in your price range there.

I live in the Wolf Creek development in South Temecula, near Pechanga Casino, and we have an awesome community club house. We are close to the casino, which bothers some people. Personally, it's never bothered me.

I'm sure there are more neighborhoods with club houses, those are the only two I'm really familiar with. Good luck with your search.

Thank you for the replies. We have found that the Paseo Del Sol area is probably where we will go.

I currently have my condo in Irvine for sale. Once that sales I will be looking heavily in that area. I should have about $200k cash to spend on a place.

I wish my Condo would sell asap so I could get out there and have a nice house in a nice community.

My condo in Irvine is actually very nice and in a very nice commnity but its only 1 bed 1/bath and just doesn't work too well for my fiance and myself since I work out of my home most of the time!
