Located in the southwestern region of Riverside County, Murrieta is recognized as one of the safest cities to live in the nation. Since its incorporation in 1991, Murrieta has experienced extreme growth with a population increase of more than 130 percent from 2000 to 2010. The city's prime location has played a role in its great success. Many residents commute daily to nearby Temecula, San Diego, Los Angeles or Orange Counties to work. For military families, Camp Pendleton is less than a 20-mile drive.
Bear Creek is a gated development in Murrieta that provides breathtaking views of the Temescal Mountains. This quiet, relaxing community, designed by golfer Jack Nicklaus, is very popular among middle-aged adults and retirees. Its private membership golf course is open to all residents and includes a fitness center, spa, tennis courts and an Olympic-sized pool for plenty of recreational activities.
The development features two attractive townhouse designs that both include well over 2,000 square feet of living space. Each townhouse features three bedrooms with the master suite located on the first floor, two-and one-half baths, a deck and an attached two-car garage. A separate dining room and private patio space let you enjoy a peaceful meal indoors or out. Decorative ceramic tile flooring and granite countertops add a touch of upscale elegance to the decor.
