Outdoor/indoor living spaces meld as one for grand entertaining; formal dining rooms, magnificent great rooms and dazzling epicurean kitchens are all highlights.

The community’s central location offers walking distance to upscale markets, shopping centers, restaurants, recreation, and entertainment. Several of the world’s most renowned golf courses are only minutes away. A fabulous $15,000 Heritage Membership at the Citrus Club at the La Quinta Resort is included with a home purchase.

A Historical Background

One of the most recognizable landmarks in the Coachella Valley is Point Happy — a scenic oasis that takes center stage in the heart of La Quinta. Everyone has marveled at the towering Santa Rosa Mountains that ostensibly rise from the horizon in captivating splendor.

Point Happy takes its name from the early settler, Norman “Happy” Lundbeck, who tended a small store there. The Point Happy Date Gardens were later established by philanthropist Chauncey Clarke, who purchased the property and offered the first Deglet Noor dates in California. Clarke also raised purebred Arabian horses at Point Happy Ranch.

The Developer

Madison Development has developed a variety of successful real estate projects throughout the country. After locating their headquarters to the Coachella Valley, the team’s focus has been on a varied mix of projects within the desert community. Among their contributions is the shopping and dining enclave of Point Happy Plaza, one of La Quinta’s most pre-eminent destinations.

Madison Development has beautifully preserved and enhanced the historic site of Point Happy Ranch, offering another wondrous chapter in a rich history that you can be a part of just by becoming a homeowner. Plan your visit soon.
