"55+ and Living well In Sonoma Valley"

Having worked in this area for over 20 years and now seeing both sets of our parents enjoying themselves, Oakmont has a lot to offer. The genesis of the area harkens back to the early 60's and has seen new housing built in every decade since, but now has very little left to expand further so as the demand to live here increases rest assured the newbies will be looking for prime locations and homes that have been remodeled with exceptional quality.

With over 4000 residents living in everything from lovely view properties ($700,000-1,000,000), golf course homes ($400,000-$900,000), owner maintained homes and yards ($300,000-$700,000), association maintained homes/condos ($200,000-$500,000) and even assisted living care at Oakmont Gardens. Nearly 90% of all homes are occupied by the owners, so rentals ($1500-3500/mo.) can be thin to choose from. Your neighbors are wonderful but beware the occasional "I have nothing else to do but scrutinize what you are doing" neighbor - which can be overcome but requires tenacity. The area is promptly adjacent to Annadel State Park with over 5000 acres of hiking, walking, biking & horseback riding trails and boasts close proximity to everything Santa Rosa (over 160,000 people).

Our kids enjoy visiting for the summer camps & spring time events and driving in the golf cart is always a hit. We love the fact that, as we are raising our family in Bennett Valley now, we are just the other side of the park from Oakmont and can walk or bike (preferred) with our entire family to our parent's homes for family time, visiting, tennis and golf. One time we were riding bikes and our youngest took a spill, a neighbor driving bye that saw it happen came to an immediate stop and jumped out of his car with first aid kit in hand ready to assist (Thank You!)

Activity wise, where do I start.... 2 golf courses, 3 different recreation centers with gym's, pool, tennis courts, lawn bowling & bocce. Residents can join numerous clubs (in fact, in some cases there is more than 1 club for those that may not "like" who is in the other). There are organized excursions for shopping and theater events and my mother-in-law even participates in a Wii bowling league (no heavy lifting required).
  • Wine country weather at its' best
  • Access to numerous activities
  • Live well
