Trilogy Retirement Communities in California

In the past year, four couples my husband and I know have purchased homes in Trilogy Retirement Communities scattered throughout California.  We have visited several of our friends in their new homes and looked at photos of the others.  All of them are proud and pleased with their new homes and communities.

All the homes are beautiful, modern, well-designed for an aging population and surprisingly affordable.  My friends paid an average of about $280,000 to $320,000 for homes that include a wide variety of amenities and upgrades.  All of them had solar panels included in their purchase price and now pay less than $10 a month for electricity.

Trilogy at Rio Vista

Our friends all love their Trilogy communities, but there is one community that I have personally visited.  That is because three of the couples we know purchased homes in the community of Trilogy at Rio Vista.  This Northern California community has a golf course and is also located on the Sacramento River Delta, which makes it possible for people to enjoy fishing and boating close to home.  There is a beautiful 27,000 square foot clubhouse, indoor lap pool with spa, outdoor pool, exercise facilities, indoor track, tennis courts, community restaurants, billiards room, learning center and more.

The indoor facilities are especially appealing because the area along the Sacramento River can get quite hot in the summer and very chilly and rainy in the winter.  However, there are also many beautiful days with temperate weather when people can enjoy outdoor activities.  Sailing or fishing along the nearby river are popular activities.

Our friends' homes are also very attractive, one-story, comfortable homes.  We have enjoyed dinner with one of the couples in their home, barbecuing on the patio and enjoying a pleasant summer evening outside.

After listening to their enthusiastic descriptions of their new lifestyles, I decided it was time to do a little more research and share my findings about other Trilogy Communities in California.

What People Like About Trilogy Retirement Communities

My husband and I considered purchasing a home at the Trilogy retirement community in Glen Ivy about ten years ago.  We loved the development, but we were still in our 50's and it was too far from where my husband worked at the time.  The community has a golf course and an indoor swimming pool, surrounded by an indoor track, an outdoor pool, tennis courts, exercise facilities, walking trails and more.  With the large, attractive clubhouse and well-designed homes, nestled next to the Cleveland National Forest, we found the community and the homes very appealing.

Since then, Trilogy has improved their home designs with new options that include solar systems that will dramatically reduce your electricity expenses.  The solar systems are rolled into your purchase price.  You can also customize your home with your choice of kitchen counters and cabinets, flooring, lighting and optional design features in the floor plans. All the new communities offer swimming pools, well designed homes, gorgeous club houses and a wide variety of amenities that are sure to appeal to the over 55 age group, including classes, gyms, tennis courts and, in some cases, golf courses.

There are additional Trilogy retirement communities in the states of Washington, Nevada, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia and Arizona.  This gives retirees a wide variety of options on both coasts.

  1. Trilogy sounds like another great community! We recently went to a luncheon where we learned of a spectacular new retirement community coming in a couple of years that might interest your Southern California readers. You can get information at reataglen.com. Maybe you could research this community and share what you learn here? Thanks Deb!
