Welcome to Alessandro Heights
A quiet and luxurious neighborhood in a peaceful, hilly setting
The small, secluded community of Alessandro Heights, with its impressive estates and spectacular views, is one of the most desirable places to live in California. Tucked up in the beautiful and hilly terrain in the south of Riverside, Alessandro Heights boasts expansive lots built to follow the natural landscape — all surrounded by three major arroyos and rugged undeveloped plateaus at the east end of the development.
Homeowners enjoy privacy with limited access into the neighborhood from Overlook Parkway — a tree-lined, median-landscaped road known as “Scenic Boulevard,” winding into the hills. The luxury locale includes numerous parks and places for outdoor activities with a wide variety of animal and plant life. At the same time, residents have the advantage of direct access to downtown — straight up Washington Street into the city.
What to Love
- A lush and beautiful terrain with natural privacy
- Large lots with single-family estates
- Well-connected are with access to major roadways
Residents of Alessandro Heights enjoy a balance of quiet seclusion and city life with a straight drive to downtown Riverside — the urban center of California’s Inland Empire. From shopping to museums, you can walk the city’s historic grid streets or take in diverse events and entertainment. You can also head west on highways I-91 or I-60 to work or to play in Los Angeles.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
Locals find the best oranges, lemons, limes, and avocados grown at Gless Ranch. The Gless Ranch Farmers Market
is open seven days a week, offering many varieties of fresh fruits and vegetables farmed from miles around. You will also find a unique selection of artisanal foods, gifts, craft beers, and specialty wines. You can also purchase citrus trees from their state-of-the-art tree nursery.
One of the favorite restaurants using ingredients from local growers is the Rustic Fork Eatery
in nearby Mission Grove. Just down the road is Mission Grove Plaza
, a 70-acre open-air shopping center with convenient stops for everything from grocery shopping to spa and gym. In the same area, you will find Grapow Restaurant
, a destination Thai food restaurant with handcrafted cocktails — a favorite of Inland Empire reviewers.
Things to Do
California Citrus State Historic Park
lies a few miles west of Alessandro Heights — a 400-acre expanse of breathtaking views. The park is a “living outdoor museum” telling the story of the citrus industry. You can take a tour of the museum built to mimic a packinghouse, walk the paths of the Citrus Varietal Grove, or simply visit the trails to hike, run, or bike.
The historic mall in downtown Riverside is a pleasant setting with fountains, sculptures, and plenty of benches for any itinerary. Main Street is lined with unique shops and inviting eateries. During the holidays, you can delight in the three-and-a-half-million lights decorating the Mission Inn
, a city mainstay.
The Riverside Unified School District
serves a large portion of Riverside. The city overall has over 90 public schools and over 40 private schools. Some of the schools in the area include:
