About Yorba Linda, California
In 2007, the US Census
reported Yorba Linda as the highest per capita income city in the
United States. That came as a suprise to this laid back and
unpretentious city. It also keeps Yorba Linda real estate in high
demand. Yorba Linda has attracted high income people from throughout
Orange County coastal communities who are attracted to the beautiful
Yorba Linda homes, larger lots, open spaces, and superb schools.
Yorba Linda is a peaceful, quiet, and enjoyable city of
approximately 65,000 people. The community is in the North East part
of Orange County California. The name for the city of Yorba Linda comes from the city´s founding family, the Yorba family. So the name
means, “Beautiful Yorba”. Many of the homes here have gorgeous views!
You can take your pick of city light, golf course, pastoral and even
Catalina views! Because most of the area is elevated, evening brings
cooling breezes on even the warmest days.
Vista Del Verde community is one good example. Yorba Linda has two
excellent golf courses! The Yorba Linda Country Club is private and
located in the central part of the city. The fairways are surrounded
and viewed by tract homes built in the 1970′s as well as many
elegant custom homes built before and after that time. The recently
opened, public, Black Gold Golf Course is located in the hills of
Northwest Yorba Linda. The fairways are surrounded by gorgeous,
newer homes of varying sizes! Construction in this upscale planned
community, Vista Del Verde is ongoing. Yorba Linda has historically
been known for it’s large lots. You will find horse property here!
There are many custom areas with very large lots. Newer tract
construction since the 90′s has tended to concentrate on very large,
elegant homes on smaller, but ample, lots. In general, Yorba Linda
homes have more space around them than the homes in surrounding
You will find few Homeowners Associations in Yorba Linda but they do
exist in some tracts. Special tax assessments in the newer areas are
comparatively low. You won’t find Mello Roos taxes in Yorba Linda.
The many parks, greenbelts and horse trails are usually maintained
by the city and a small charge appears on tax bills. The
Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District is very highly
regarded and considered one of the finest in Orange County. A brand
new, additional High School recently opened. There is very little
commercial development in Yorba Linda. The only large commercial
site is located down by the freeway away from most residential
areas. The historic downtown area has been beautifully preserved and
is the site of several annual Fairs and other events. And, of
course, the Richard Nixon Presidential Library is a great asset to
the community and a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! Yorba Linda
really is a beautiful community in the rolling hills of North Orange
County. With easy access to all that Orange County has to offer,
it’s a great place to live.
