John and Taffi Brandriff

Quiet and peaceful Many La Sierra Hills residents enjoy living in the neighborhood because of its quiet, peaceful atmosphere, open spaces, friendly neighbors and easy access to shopping. “I would never move. I love my neighborhood,� said Taffi Brandriff, an 18-year resident who also is a community activist along with her husband, John. “This is definitely the hidden jewel of Riverside.� There is an active Neighborhood Watch program, with residents looking out for each other, but they also get together in other ways — sharing iced tea and conversation on a warm afternoon and dressing up to celebrate Halloween. “We’re kind of a tight-knit neighborhood up here,� John Brandriff said. “We have events about three times a year — potlucks and things like that.�

Hidden Valley Wildlife Area Nature Center

Kim Sweet also enjoys living in the area for similar reasons. Her home on a cul-de-sac abuts a hillside and offers a quiet suburban lifestyle near shopping centers in Riverside, Norco and Eastvale. “I love the quietness and the privacy,� said Sweet, a 22-year resident of La Sierra Hills. “We’re nicely centrally located. We have hubs everywhere. You’re close to everything, but far away.�
