This beautiful secluded hillside neighborhood has long been home to the Hollywood elite (Natalie Wood, Robert Wagner, Cher, Joseph Cotten, among others). Many have been celebrities from the World of Music - singers, composers, lyricists and musicians. Today Barry Manilow and Suzanne Somers continue to reside here.
The Mesa is tucked away at the bottom of the San Jacinto Mountains. It is perhaps our most eclectic neighborhood with its amazing variety of architecture. It ranges from the romantic Spanish Colonial Revival of the 1920's to today's dramatic contemporary styles.
One of our crown jewels of desert architecture, Ship of the Desert, is located in this neighborhood.
You will find this neighborhood a true "slice of paradise".
