UPDATED 4/27/18 --- HAPPY APRIL!!!!    Welcome to my blog, that discusses the available homes at Brentwood’s two “OVER 55” communities of Summerset & Trilogy Vineyards.   Both communities offer activities, a gated community and many choices in single family homes.   Summerset is the oldest community, built from 1994-2005.   Trilogy Vineyards first home was completed in 2007, and they are still being built. 


Trilogy Vineyards is a FABULOUS spa oriented community, built by Shea.  Homes range from 1460 -3000+ square feet.  There are numerous events to join, and this community is surrounded by vineyards.  Building your own dream is a great experience, but if you can purchase somebody else’s dream, you can save some money.   Click Here to View TRILOGY VINEYARD Listings

Summerset  has 26 floor plans and is centered around the 27-hole Brentwood Golf Club.  It has 4 gated communities, each with bocce, tennis, pool, clubhouse and activities. You can attend activities in the other communities, giving you multiple options on events/clubs/outings.  Click to View  SUMMERSET Listings

These 2 communities are my focus; so, if you have questions, please call me at 925-852-1659.    Let me know if you desire a tour or floorplans of these homes.

UPDATED 12/25/17:   MERRY CHRISTMAS, and the BEST of wishes to you and your family during this month of sharing, caring, eating, laughing, shopping, enjoying and celebrating.   Thanks for visiting to my blog about the 2 wonderful “over 55” communities of Summerset & Trilogy Vineyards.   Both of these great communities offer their residents multiple activities for their residents to enjoy not only at the holidays, but year-long.  


Trilogy Vineyards homes were first homes built in the Bordeaux Village in 2007.   Many resales are in this most desired village, as these homes have the Signature 20’ ceilings in the main living area.  The next village was the Sonoma village, which started offering the standard ceiling height and the Shea Solar option.   Most resales are in these 2 villages, as they were built prior to 2014.  A Trilogy Vineyard Resale home offers upgrades that would be more expensive in a new-build, a completed yard and window coverings.  Click Here to View the 3 Trilogy Vineyard Re- Sale Listings

Summerset is just across the road from Trilogy Vineyards, and offers buyers 26 different models, 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 $375K.   Not all models are for sale at all times, and the most desired are homes with a golf course lot.  Currently, there are 5 golf course homes for sale! (Homes on Jonagold, Grenadier, Franklin & Benoni are the golf course homes.)  With 26 floorplans, Summerset has something to offer everyone’s needs!  Click Here to View the 11 Summerset Re-sale Listings
