The La Quinta Griffin Ranch CommunityMerv Griffin as we know it today, was first envisioned by entertainment icon Merv Griffin.  Mr. Griffin decision to take a large portion of his estate and turn it into a luxury equestrian community in 2005. Sadly Mr. Griffin died in August 2007 just as his dream community opens and the first grouping of homes become available.

This is also the same year that the economy takes a turn for the worse, so all homes are put on hold, including the ones that are already ordered.  For the sixty homeowners that have already moved into Griffin Ranch, they are left wondering what will happen next?
