Whittier Ranch is considered one of Coachella Valley’s best values for new homeowners. This family community has no developer Mello Roos taxes and residents do not have homeowner’s association obligations. The area’s utilities are also serviced by the Imperial Irrigation District resulting in low costs. Recently the second phase was sold out and brand new homes were being contracted for phase three, starting in the low 200’s. The scenic mountain views, spectacular landscaped walkways, and community park, are only a few of the features that make this neighborhood attractive.
Whittier Ranch has four floor plans to choose from. The smallest one starts with 1,674 square feet and the largest has 2,579. With 137 residences this community offers many amazing amenities. The gourmet kitchen has beautifully appointed granite countertops and professional stainless steel appliances. The homes feature eight-foot entry doors and tall ceilings to give the homeowner the ambiance of high-end luxury. The refined architecture is inspired by Italiante, Tuscan, and Spanish exteriors with hand-finished accents.
This South Indio location is right off Avenue 48th and Jackson Street. Many homes have four bedrooms with a fifth optional for a den or guest bedroom. Standard builder features include 18-inch ceramic floor tile, covered patios, Whirlpool kitchen appliances, carpet, and window coverings throughout the home. These homes also come with ceiling fans in the master bedrooms and great rooms. And most plans include a three car garage.
Whittier Ranch is rich in history as a stable of Coachella Valley since the early 1900’s and was originally a date grove. It was the Whittier family home until the 1930’s and then housed General George Patton. The general resided at the ranch during World War II while traveling to Chiriaco Summit to train. His home was restored and is now a historical landmark, protected by the ranch foundation.
The community is also close to many stores, restaurants, and entertainment in the City of Indio. There are medical facilities and sporting venues within minutes of travel.
