Oakmont Lifestyle

The founders of Oakmont built a community that is about more than real estate. It’s about lifestyle. Oakmonters are a diverse yet connected community. Residents can find camaraderie and pursue their interests and passions close to home or in the broader Sonoma community and Bay Area.
