"A gorgeous area"

Several years back when my husband and I were considering moving we looked into Idyllwilde. Whoever developed this area did a really great job. Instead of bulldozing the land and rearranging the landscape, they chose to incorporate the natural beauty of the area into the setting. There are rolling hills with tons of Evergreen trees and the homes, although some are close together, have enough open space around them to make it feel as if you're not right on top of your neighbors like in some areas. There is a really nice clubhouse with a pool and it seemed to me as if there was a good dose of neighborly spirit.

When we were looking, homes were in the neighborhood of $350,00-$500,000 range, although those numbers may have changed. While it seems almost as if you're in the mountains because of the scenery, Idyllwilde is close to many amenities. A good variety of shopping and dining options are within a few minutes and Parker Road leads to either the Tollway or you can take Lincoln up to I-25. The schools here are really good as well.
