The original “Over 55” community in Brentwood is SUMMERSET! My name is Elaine King, and I am a realtor who specializes in the “Over 55” market. I personally live in Summerset, and I am very familiar with the housing options available.

SUMMERSET consists of 2000+ homes, located in 4 different communities, and offering 25+ models.  Summerset has a home for everyone’s price point; prices start in the low $500K range. All homes are single-story, with 2 bedrooms and a garage; dens/3rd rooms are offered in homes larger than 1500 sq. ft. Built from 1994-2005, each Summerset offers diverse activities and amenities: clubhouse with workout room, pool, and hot tub. Tennis & bocce courts are also available. Once you reside in one SUMMERSET community, you can partake of activities in all Summerset communities. Current HOA fees range from $95-$155/month, depending on the community.

In SUMMERSET, you will meet neighbors who are at the same point in their lives. You can join in many clubs, events, trips, or choose to relax & enjoy life on your own schedule. Brentwood has a library, a variety of local shopping, downtown restaurants, and 2 major medical facilities: John Muir Medical Center & Kaiser Hospital in Antioch.

If Summerset is of interest, I would like to hear from YOU! Call me at (925) 852-1659, for community information or to schedule a tour of available homes.

These homes, range from 1,460-3,000 sq. ft., and offer a variety of architectural designs. Solar power generation was offered on homes built after 2012, for energy efficiency. All homes in the Bordeaux Village feature the signature Carl Legoni 18′ ceilings in the main living areas. There are still lots available to build your own dream home. Another option is purchasing another’s dream! A re-sale home usually saves the buyer both money and the frustration of choosing options.

TRILOGY VINEYARDS offers its members a monthly schedule of events, outings, clubs, gatherings, and trips. When you drive away from your home/community, you will not be far from 2 major medical facilities: John Muir Medical & Kaiser Hospital in Antioch. A local farmer’s market, shopping, library, walking trail, restaurants, and BART are also short drives.
