A Scenic, Intimate 55+ Community in Northern California, The Vineyard Boasts Single Family Homes, Two Lakes and Distant Mountain Views and Reasonable HOA Fees
Tucked in the shadow of the Cascade Mountains in north central California, The Vineyard is an intimate, gated 55+ community developed by Chase and Taylor, Inc. It has just 207 homes and was built from 1987 to 2003.
Floor plans in the 208 properties range from about 1,200 square feet to 2,400 square feet. Most homes have two bedrooms, two baths, a stucco exterior, a two car garage, and an easy-to-maintain backyard. Larger models may have up to four bedrooms. Special features include tall ceilings, custom built bookcases and a wet bar. Homeowners also enjoy lake and greenbelt vistas. The Vineyard is compact, and its sidewalk-lined streets are laid out in such a way as to minimize traffic noise.
Resales begin in the high-$200,000s and top out in the high-$300,000s, a fairly reasonable price for California real estate. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they are subject to change.
This is a pretty community, with mature landscaping, distant mountain views and two large lakes. One lake has a center island with a gazebo and a bridge from the shore, creating a scenic tableau. Many a resident takes advantage of the paved walking path that surrounds the water.
The nicely appointed clubhouse has a ballroom, a couryard and a card room. Neighbors meet here for book chats, painting classes, and happy hours. The outdoor pool is surrounded by bocce ball and shuffleboard courts. Residents have access to a large RV parking lot, too.
Redding is bisected by the Sacramento River, and its trail system follows the water, stretching for more than 20 miles. The Sundial Bridge crosses the river and unites the 300 acres of the city's Turtle Bay Exploration Park. The city supports a ballet, the Riverfront Playhouse, the Cascade Theatre, and the Shasta County Arts Council. Redding events include the Sundial Film Festival, the Market Street Faire, TEDxRedding, the Redding Rodeo, Redding Beer Week, and the Lemurian Shasta Classic Mountain Bike Race. Camping, cabins, hiking, and fishing are available throughout the nearby Six Rivers National Forest.
Mercy Medical Center is accredited by the Joint Commission.

California is the most populous state in the United States, and it is the sixth largest economy in the world.
Because it is so long, the climate varies greatly. Everything from deserts, forests and snow covered mountains to the world famous moderate temperatures of Southern California are here. Record temperatures have included a low of minus 35 degrees and a high of 134 degrees.
Missions placed within a day's walk from one another dot the length of the state and started appearing in 1769. Juan Cabrillo first sighted California in 1542 and inspired the missions. A few of the most famous ones are San Juan Capistrano (the swallows return every year at the same time), and San Diego (the first one).
A few of California's natural resources include petroleum, timber and natural gas. Industries are manufacturing (machinery, transportation equipment, electronics), aerospace and defense, biotechnology, and tourism. Of course, Hollywood and Disneyland are known around the world. Other famous attractions are Yosemite National Park, the Golden Gate Bridge (San Francisco), Point Reyes National Seashore, Sequoia National Park and San Simeon State Park (Hearst Castle).
The lowest point in the U.S. is California's Death Valley at 282 feet below sea level, and the highest point in the Lower 48 is its Mt. Whitney at 14,491 feet above sea level. Outside of Hawaii and Alaska, the state's Lassen Peak is one of the two active volcanoes in the U.S. It last erupted in 1917.

Which States Have the Most 55+ Communities?
More and more 55+ communities are popping up as baby boomers retire, but Florida is still king when it comes to retirement communities. Arizona runs a close second, and other southern and western states, including Georgia, Texas and the Carolinas, are gaining ground. Developers are discovering a huge market in retiring baby boomers, and they plan to keep building retirement communities, many of which are really mini-resorts.
