MAY 2020 - Trilogy Vineyard's & Summerset Re-Sales

Posted On: May 1st, 2020 9:46PM

UPDATED 5/23/2020 -   HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!   May is normally a month of preparing for graduations, weddings, Memorial Day parties & vacations.  This month, we’re focusing on the easing of restrictions, and ways to social distance.  Great news --- buyers can now view occupied homes!  This was a huge win, as many buyers want to “feel” the home, before they write an offer.  Open Houses & Broker Tours are still NOT allowed.  Also, no more than 2 buyers in home, at one time.  Summerset & Trilogy Vineyard home sales were slowed these last 2 months, as both buyers/sellers are the age most impacted by the virus.  Restrictions are easing, so if you want to view a home in person or via virtual tour, give me a call.


Trilogy Vineyard’s & Summerset are located 50 miles East of San Francisco, in Brentwood.  Both “over 55” communities offer buyers a single family home, with many choices in sizes & features.  Our farmer’s market & U-Pick cherry farms are now open!  Brentwood is close to shopping, restaurants, medical, and BART.


Summerset is the oldest of the two communities, built from 1994-2005.   Summerset has 26 floor plans, over 2,000 homes.  The homes are centered around the 27-hole Brentwood Golf Club. (Which is Public, and now open for play! (effective 5-4-2020.)   Summerset has 4 gated communities, each community with bocce, tennis, pool, clubhouse and many activities. However, Summerset clubhouses are currently closed, because of Covid 19.  Click for SUMMERSET Listings

Trilogy Vineyard’s homes were built starting in 2006, and they are still being constructed; when complete, the community will number around 1100 homes.   Trilogy Vineyards is a resort centered lifestyle, bordered by grapevines & olive trees. Homes range from 1460 -3000+ square feet.  The many gated villages surround Club Los Meganos (the main clubhouse, restaurant, spa, and tennis courts)   However, Club Los Megano is currently closed, because of Covid 19! Building your own dream is a great experience; but if you can purchase somebody else’s dream, you usually save yourself money & frustration of rear yard landscaping.

These 2 communities are my focus; so, if you have questions, please call me at 925-852-1659.    I will be happy to assist you.

APRIL 2020 Summerset & Trilogy Vineyard Blog Update

Posted On: April 7th, 2020 1:39AM

UPDATED 4/26/2020:  Welcome to my blog that focuses on available homes at Brentwood’s two “OVER 55” communities: Summerset & Trilogy Vineyards.


I usually update this blog weekly, or less, but with the “shelter in place”, I have been lax.  Currently only VACANT homes can be viewed, by appointment, and NO Open Houses/Broker Tours are allowed.  FYI - here are new guidelines for realtors: https://www.carcovidupdates.org/best-practices-guidelines

Both Summerset & Trilogy Vineyards’s  offer its residents a gated community, and many choices in single family home sizes & prices.   Summerset is the oldest community, built from 1994-2005.   Trilogy Vineyards first home was completed in 2006, and they are still being constructed.  


Trilogy Vineyards is a FABULOUS resort-oriented community, with homes ranging from 1460-3000+ square feet.  If you want to skip the hassle of building your dream home, you can purchase somebody else’s dream, and usually save money with a resale. Click for TRILOGY VINEYARD Listings

Summerset has 26 floor plans, ranging from 964 – 2560+ square feet.  The homes are centered around the 27-hole Brentwood Golf Club (golf course is public).  These homes usually require updates, that HGTV buyers now seek. Click for SUMMERSET Listings

Along with the best practices guideline, there are 4 new disclosures created for the safety of buyers/sellers/realtors.  Staying safe is my priority for myself and my clients! Contact me by phone or email with questions, and stay healty!

REVISED 3/26/2020:  Have you been thinking about purchasing your retirement home?  Are you “almost” retired and can work remotely?    If so, Brentwood’s two “Over 55” communities may be for you.  Summerset & Trilogy Vineyard’s offer retirees/soon to be retirees homes that range from $400K to $1.2+M.  Located 50 miles east of San Francisco, both Summerset & Trilogy Vineyards offer something for a variety of pricing and home size needs.


If you desire a new-build, Trilogy Vineyards can also accommodate those needs.  However, if you can find a re-sale. with the upgrades you seek, you WILL save money and time.  Trilogy offers a lifestyle, with a 34,000 sq. ft. clubhouse, indoor/outdoor swimming pools, restaurant, and full concierge services.  Here is a link to current Trilogy Vineyard re-sale homes…  Click for TRILOGY VINEYARD Re-Sale Listings

Summerset has a 27-hole public golf course running throughout their four communities.  Built from 1994-2005, these homes are gently used, but may need the HGTV upgrades that buyers now demand.  Here is a link to current Summerset re-sales…. Click for SUMMERSET Re-Sale Listings

Both locations are great places to meet new friends, be close to medical facilities/hospitals, and be near trails and parks.  Grocery stores, shopping centers and services are also close.  Both communities have bocce courts, tennis courts and many activities/clubs to enjoy.

UPDATED 1/25/20……..   HAPPY NEW YEAR!  May you have health & prosperity in this coming decade.  Thanks for visiting my blog, highlighting Brentwood’s “over 55” communities.  Brentwood is located about 50 miles East of San Francisco.  People enjoy its proximity to San Francisco, Sacramento, San Jose and Napa Valley. 


Trilogy Vineyards homes were first built in 2007.   A Trilogy Vineyard re-sale home offers buyers many upgrades, that would be more expensive in a new-build.  These homes also have completed yards & window coverings.  Re-sales range from 1460-3000+ square feet, and start around $625K.  The many gated villages surround Club Los Meganos (the main clubhouse, restaurant & spa).  Click for Trilogy Vineyard Listings

Summerset, just across the road from Trilogy Vineyards, offers buyers 26 different models, with homes built from 1994-2005.   These homes also feature a clubhouse, bocce, tennis, library, pool, spa and work-out room.  Homes range from 984-2600+ sq. ft., and start around $380K.   Not all models are for sale at all times, and the most desired are homes with a golf course lot.  Click for SUMMERSET Listings

BARCELONA is a new duet community, built by Shea. This “Over 55” Community will also be gated, be all-electric, and have its own 1500 sq. ft. clubhouse, with a spool & bocce courts. These homes are brand new, located just outside the gates of Trilogy Vineyards.  Click for BARCELONA Duet Listings
