Griffin Ranch was initially opened by the popular media and entertainment icon, Merv Griffin. As the first person to recognize a promising future on this land, Griffin purchased the large tract of rural land, as it was, even before incorporation of La Quinta City.
This land served as the home of his Moroccan-styled estate by then. In 2005, He decided to turn some part of this property into a well-planned equestrian community. This saw the birth of Griffin Ranch, which was consequently opened in May, 2007. Homeowners started taking residence in the ranch as from November, during the same year.
This 240-acre ranch is now a 24-hour guard-gated community, located in the gorgeous South of La Quinta, next to some upscale neighboring communities such as PGA West, Hideaway and The Madison Club. The main entrance is located on Madison Street, south of Avenue 54.
The master community has been specially designed to please equestrian enthusiasts. The equestrian theme suits those who love horses, and especially those seeking a more sophisticated setting.
The ranch offers amazing views of the Santa-Rosa Mountains, luxurious and spacious living spaces, and plenty of beautiful scenery including wildlife. It features Tuscan, Andalusian, Mission and Spanish influenced exteriors. In addition to the large home sites, there are private, well-decorated courtyards and verandas. Casitas are offered at selected plans.
This exclusive community is conveniently located to various fine restaurants, hiking, shopping and biking, offering easy access to major roadways. It offers you an opportunity to enjoy the sunny outdoors at any of the numerous golf courses, country club communities and resorts which will be just a short distance from your home.

The four designs include the Castilla Collection, the Sevilla Collection, the Campania and Madeira Collections.
