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.


You have many choices and decisions to make about how to spend, and where to spend your retirement.  Brentwood’s Summerset and Trilogy homes should be part of your consideration.  For more information, call me at 925-852-1659.

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
