The Unique Gated Community of Victoria Grove in Riverside
Who Wouldn’t Love to Live in this Park-like Setting, Neighboring Beautiful Lake Victoria
Would you like to live in a gated neighborhood as cool as anything in OC, but at less than half the price? Consider getting a mortgage in La Sierra, Victoria Grove.
As you drive into the area, you’ll think you’ve landed on another planet, and you certainly will quickly forget that you are part of the 49th largest city in America. The southern border of Victoria Grove is only a stone’s throw from Lake Matthews, one of Riverside County’s largest reservoirs.
You’ll also feel a sense of community as you drive through the wide streets of this planned development. So many amenities like swimming pools, parks, and clubhouses call out for times of fun with your family and the neighbors.
The “grove” part of the name Victoria Grove has to do with the promise of this community to maintain the hundreds of orange trees growing on the 500 acres of common area property.
The Victoria Grove Location Is Ideal To Take Out Mortgage in La Sierra
So close yet so far away. Sure, you feel like you’re in another world, but drive just 3 miles from the entrance of Victoria Grove and you are in Indiana where you will find most of the shopping you care about (Ralphs, and Starbucks.) Along the way, you would have crossed the very end of this historic Victoria Avenue, where you can easily spend an hour on foot or bicycle touring what has been designated a historical treasure.
In just another few minutes you can be at the Metro Station, enter the 91 Fwy and be anywhere in SoCal in an hour or so, or head over to some major shopping and movie-going in the Tyler Mall complex. Plenty of great places to eat within that drive, too.
Schools in Victoria Grove
Start your kids out at the highly regarded Lake Matthews Elementary School, then send the older ones to an equally fantastic Frank Augustus Miller Middle School. The high school for this area is Arlington High School.
For the college-age crew, if you take out a mortgage in La Sierra, you are 15 minutes from La Sierra College, 25 minutes from California Baptist University, and at most 35 minutes to Riverside Community and UC Riverside.
