In Beautiful San Jose, California, The Villages Golf and Country Club, a 55+ Community, Boasts a Good Selection of Homes, Two Golf Courses, an Equestrian Facility, 550 Acres of Open Space and More
Tucked into the foothills above Northern California's Silicon Valley, just an hour southeast of San Francisco, the 55+ golf community of The Villages Golf and Country Club broke ground in 1967. It finished construction in 2000, and its 12 neighborhoods stretch across 12,000 rolling acres that are dotted with trees, ponds, bushes and gardens.
The 2,536 homes come in three basic designs. Condos and villas dominate the landscape, and average sizes can range from just under 1,200 square feet to more than 2,000 square feet. Single family homes generally have two bedrooms, two baths, a den and a two car garage. Many properties have golf course or open space views. Mediterranean architecture is common, but contemporary, four square, bungalow styles and more are also present. Prices for current resales start in the low-$400,000s. Please verify this price with a Realtor as it is bound to change. HOA fees help pay for security, a newspaper, a community cable channel, road maintenance and trash collection.
Residents enjoy two golf courses, a clubhouse, a full service restaurant, and a pro-shop. There are four community centers scattered throughout the community, and each has a pool and spa. Personal gardening plots, an equestrian facility, six tennis courts, hiking trails, 550 acres of open space are a few of the other shared amenities. An activities director oversees a full calendar of classes and events. Social groups range from an amateur astronomy club to a music society.
