Situated in the northeastern reaches of Orange County, the city of Yorba Linda is primarily a residential community with the distinction of being one of the wealthiest cities in the country. Formerly known as Rancho Cañón de Santa Ana, the city got its present name when Janss Investment Company bought the land from Jacob Stern. It was renamed to honor the land’s original owner, Bernardo Yorba. Approximately 68,000 residents call beautiful Yorba Linda their home, with its pleasantly warm climate, equestrian trails, and charming gardens.
You’ll find the cities of Anaheim, Brea, Corona, and Placentia around Yorba Linda’s boundaries. The Placentia-Yorba Linda Unified School District presides over the city’s public schools, which include seven elementary schools, three middle schools, and a high school.
Some of the housing options that Yorba Linda’s real estate market offers are:
- Single-family homes
- New construction
- Luxurious estates
- Multi-family residences
There are about 20,700 housing units in the city. Home prices range from $300,000 to over $1.5 million.
Noteworthy communities include Vista del Verde, Bryant Ranch, East Lake Village, and Kerrigan Ranch.
- Richard Nixon Library – Named after the 37th President of the United States, the Richard Nixon Library is the repository of textual files, Federal records, oral histories, and even the National Security files of the former American president. Approximately 500,000 pictures and more than 4,000 hours of “off air” video recordings are stored in the library, which, on occasion, features special exhibits.
- Black Gold Golf Club – Located in Yorba Linda’s foothills, the Black Gold Golf Club is home to a par-72, 6,756-yard golf course designed by renowned American designer Arthur Hills.
