Overview

These 3 Active Retirement Communities contain 1896 cozy, single-story duplex homes connected by single-car, attached garages. They typically have only a few homes for sale at any given time

The homes range in size from approximately 825 to 1450 square feet  and have 2 or 3 bedrooms. The smaller homes have one bathroom and the larger homes have 2 bathrooms. Some also have a large enclosed patio.

They are all located just a few miles inland from the Pacific coast. The nearly constant ocean temperature and coastal breezes provide them with a very comfortable year-round climate with summer highs in the mid to high 70's (F), winter lows in the low 40's (F) and sunshine approximately 70% of the time possible.

Their prices are in the Low to Mid $200K range. These prices include the cost of the lot that the house sits on.

Their Home Owners Fees are very low ($0 - $10/month).

Most of these homes have small, low maintenance front and back yards. Some however have fairly large back yards that are perfect for growing small gardens or fruit trees and some are on view lots. Most have an outside patio.

They all have single-car garages that are accessible from the house.

They have no community club houses- But, a plethora of Senior Activities are available at the nearby Oceanside Country Club Senior Center (less than 7 miles away) and the modern El Corazon Senior Center that "Targets Baby Boomers" (less than 3.5 miles away).
Many additional Activities for Retirees are available throughout North San Diego County.

The homeowners are each responsible for the upkeep of their house and lot in accordance with CC&R agreements. Elected members of each community's Home Owners Association enforce CC&R compliance to insure that their community's neighborhoods are properly maintained. The result is that most of the neighborhoods in these communities are kept in a well-maintained state.

Although these communities were built between 1974 and 1984, many of their homes have been modernized and upgraded and some are absolutely gorgeous inside.
