Just fifty-five miles east of Downtown Los Angeles, in the Greater Los Angeles Area, you will find a delightful Inland Empire city known as Riverside. Riverside is the county seat of the county by the same name. Both are named so because of their proximity to the Santa Ana River. Riverside is home to roughly 310,000 residents and is the most populous city in the Inland Empire and the county, in addition to being the twelfth most populated city in the state and the fifty-ninth most populated in the country. This remarkable city is the birthplace of the citrus industry in California and is the home to the last navel orange tree in California. It is also the home of the California Citrus State Historic Park, the Riverside National Cemetery, the Mission Inn, the Fox Performing Arts Center, the California Museum of Photography, Riverside Metropolitan Museum, and in the northeastern part of the city The University of California, Riverside.
In addition to these exciting destinations, Riverside also boasts excellent options for shopping and dining, which is great news for residents of smaller neighboring communities such as Woodcrest. Home to roughly 15,000 residents, Woodcrest is a census-designated place adjacent to Riverside and listed for potential annexation. Like neighboring Riverside, Woodcrest has a long history, and its first subdivision was developed in 1905 and named Oak Glen Tract. In 1924 both the House Heights and Fertile Acres tracts were created, and in 1926 the first of five developments with the Woodcrest Acres name was formed. Later that year a post office was established and named Woodcrest Acres as well, and although the post office eventually closed, the name stuck.
Today Woodcrest is an excellent choice for homebuyers desiring proximity to Riverside’s amenities, but not wanting to live amidst its hustle and bustle. Comprised of 11.4 square miles, Woodcrest has both well-established areas and new housing developments. Real estate in Woodcrest includes homes of varying ages, architectural styles, and sizes. Many of the homes in Woodcrest have room for horses, and many regard the area as an equestrian community.
