You have some great input so far and every agent/broker has their favorite areas to show properties in Temecula.
Paseo Del Sol/Paloma Del Sol - Right in the center of town, thriving with family activity, walking trails, well kept yards and low taxes.
Vintage Hills/Temeku Hills/Chardonnay Hills, - Gateway to the wineries (Rancho California Rd), again super family neighborhoods with larger homes and lots. Low taxes. Neighborhood markets.
Morgan Hill/Crowne Hill - Luxury tract homes on the far Southeast side of town. Great view of the valley and Palomar Mountain. These are newer neighbor hoods and carry slightly higher taxes and assessments.
Wine Country - The essence of the Temecula lifestyle. 2.5 - 20 acre custom homes and lots. Views, views, views. Low taxes. Better be ready to grow some grapes, though!
Meadow View - A stones throw from the Promenade Mall, you get great country lifestyle just seconds from the center of town. Horse's and trails surround. Low taxes. Properties range from super high luxury to small fixers.
Bottom line is, your picking a great community to home hunt in! The above is just a few in Temecula but, we have many awesome communities in Murrieta as well.
Good luck on your search and let me know if I can be of help!
