Desert Collection is a highly sought after gated community, but homes are not readily available here. This exclusive neighborhood in North Indio, California, has a low turnover due to its low homeowner’s association fees and no Mello Roos, meaning low taxes. It’s located in a prime area south of Avenue 42 and west of the Golf Center Parkway. It’s also right across from the Landmark Golf Club, which was once the home of the Skins Game.
Built by Reynolds Communities, it has 144 single-family houses with prices that vary dependent upon the size. If you can grab an opportunity for real estate here, it’s a great investment for a family home or a vacation spot. Most of the homes in the Desert Collection have granite counters, maple cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances in its gourmet kitchen facilities. Fireplaces add an inviting touch to the living rooms and residents love the spacious bedrooms as well as the abundance of closets.
The Coachella Valley is surrounded by mountain ranges on three sides which dictate a year-round warm climate. The average high temperature is 89.5 °F degrees and low is 62.1. Many homes have casitas with their own private entrances and courtyards; it’s never a problem to have family over for an extended stay. Desert Collection has wonderful curb appeal and roomy 2- and 3-car garages.
The City of Indio offers many cultural activities and events as well as shopping, dining, and entertainment. Terra Lago Golf Club is also across the street from Desert Collection and a Target shopping center is down the street. Students in this neighborhood are registered at schools like Dwight Eisenhower Elementary School, Desert Ridge Academy, and Shadow Hills High School.
