Winchester Real Estate

Winchester is also referred to as French Valley; a name given by settlers when they first arrived in the area. It was said it reminded them of the French countryside. Set in a more country setting with open space and a laid-back lifestyle, there is a wide variety of homes and communities to choose from. Many home builders have chosen this area because of the availability of land and picturesque setting. Lot sizes seem to be a little bit bigger here. Deep blue skies are to be enjoyed here. Plus, your favorite escapes are less than 10 minutes from your new home. Both active adults and children will enjoy the area’s fantastic parks and recreation facilities that allow residents to get outside and play, jog, bike, walk and enjoy the great California outdoors! Nearby is Lake Skinner, which is just a few miles from the Temecula Wine Country and offers camping, sailing, fishing, swimming, horseback riding, hiking, and nature watching and is host to the annual Temecula Wine and Balloon Festival each year.
