The beautiful Tehachapi Valley is an oasis located in the mountains between the San Joaquin Valley and the Mojave Desert, offering a cool haven from the arid desert heat and the sprawling lowlands of the valley. With approximately 12,000 residents, Tehachapi is one of the few areas left in California with potential growth opportunities for investors or families who want a high quality of life plus affordable living.
Noted for its horse communities that accommodate equestrian properties of all sizes, Tehachapi's sparkling blue skies that turn into star filled nights exemplify the beauty of the area in every setting. The diversity of the area offers something for everyone, including small town neighborhoods, mountains filled with oak and pine trees, rustic and luxurious homes and sprawling ranches, all beautifully displayed in the splendor of four wonderfully distinct seasons.
From gated resort communities to the wide-open spaces, recreation plays a prominent role here. Championship golf at the Stallion Springs Golf Course, lakes used for fishing and boating, hiking and horseback riding, blue skies for gliding and lots of great places to lie back and read your favorite book are just a few of the outdoor settings that residents love. Additionally, Tehachapi boasts virtually no crime, excellent educational opportunities and a lifestyle of peace and quiet, which most people think can no longer be found in California.
