Oakmont is one of America’s finest active adult communities. The first Oakmont home was built in 1964. A year later the 100th sale was recorded, and today there are more than 3200 homes. Founder and developer HN Berger envisioned a destination with characteristics more akin to a small town than a typical retirement community. The wide variety of Oakmont homes were artfully and thoughtfully constructed on 1,000 acres in the Valley of the Moon and remain in high demand today. Independent and assisted living is also available in Oakmont Gardens.
Finding The Perfect Home
Whether you prefer a home on the golf course, a secluded hillside or a quiet cul-de-sac, Oakmont has something to suit your taste and budget. Choose between areas where properties are maintained by a homeowners association, or an owner-maintained area.
Stand-alone homes range from cozy cottages to stately hillside villas, with average prices ranging from $350,00 to $800,000. One-bedroom fourplex units, triplexes and duplex homes also are available. Many homes have been updated and modified to offer the latest in design and convenience. Options include new patio homes at The Orchard, where buyers can choose from three different models, and The Meadows, Oakmont’s newest development, offering homes up to 2400 square feet. Oakmont homes are sold by real estate firms or by owner. Agents are knowledgeable about Oakmont properties and association benefits and requirements.
All Oakmont residents belong to the Oakmont Village Association (OVA) that provides governance for the community. The OVA has a seven-member volunteer board of directors who are elected by the residents to oversee policies on architecture, land use and facilities, communications and long range planning. Resident volunteers serve on subcommittees of the board and on ad-hoc committees. Association dues are $75 per person monthly and support maintenance of common areas, facilities and programs.
Visit our video page to see full board meetings. The Oakmont News, an OVA publication, is published twice monthly and mailed to every resident home. It is also posted online, including news updates that occur since the last printed edition.
Some housing is located in maintained, or homeowner association, areas where landscaping and house painting are taken care of for residents. In addition to OVA fees, a homeowner’s association assesses dues based on services rendered. The League of Maintained Area Associations (LOMAA) is an organization composed of members of these various Maintained Areas and helps them stay up to date on legal and other issues.
