UPDATED 4/23/21: Welcome to my blog, featuring the available homes at Brentwood’s two “OVER 55” communities of Summerset & Trilogy Vineyards.   Both gated communities offer activities and many choices in single family homes.   (In both price and floor plan.)  Summerset is the oldest community, built from 1994-2005.   Trilogy Vineyard’s first home was completed in 2007, and they still have lots available to build your dream home.


Trilogy Vineyards is a FABULOUS resort-oriented community, centered around Club Los Meganos.  Built by Shea these homes range from 1460 -3000+ square feet.  There are many clubs/events to join, and this community is surrounded by vineyards.  Building your own dream home is a great experience, but if you can purchase somebody else’s dream home, you can save some money.  Here’s a list of current Trilogy Vineyard re-sale homes… Click for TRILOGY VINEYARD Re-Sales


Summerset has 26 floor plans, with the 27-hole Brentwood Golf Club, running throughout the communities.  Summerset has 4 gated communities, each with bocce, tennis, pool, clubhouse and activities.  Once a Summerset owner, you can do activities/events arranged at the other Summerset properties, giving you multiple options on events/clubs/outings.

These 2 communities are my focus; should you have questions, please call me at 925-852-1659.  Inventory is low in BOTH communities, so let me know of a floorplan/location that you want, and I can keep you informed on new inventory that is/has come up for sale.
