If you want to be part of a brand-new 55+ community, take a look at these options in California.

There’s nothing like living in a brand-new home in a newly built community. Many active adults seek out new construction homes because they're often able to customize the home's features and finishes, such as bonus rooms, countertop materials, paint colors, and flooring. Living in a new 55+ community means amenities will be top-notch, and the home styles will be contemporary and modern.

In addition to those perks, many new homes feature energy-efficient designs, saving homeowners significant money in just a few years. If you’re considering a new home in sunny California, read on to discover three new 55+ communities that have recently opened in the Golden State. 

Esperanza - Ontario, CA

High $400s - Mid $500s

Built by Lennar Homes from 2019 to the present, Esperanza offers homebuyers new, contemporary homes in the popular Inland Empire city of Ontario. This prime location puts Esperanza residents conveniently close to shopping, restaurants, medical centers, golf courses, and plenty of entertainment and outdoor leisure opportunities.

This new gated community features three unique collections of single-family homes. These luxurious and comfortable homes range from 1,381 to 2,135 square feet and feature single-story floor plans offering two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an attached two-car garage. Additionally, these homes have solar energy and energy-efficient designs as well as the "Thoughtful Design" program, which features wider hallways and doorways, extra lighting, and lower appliance design to accommodate the needs of active adults.

The amenities at Esperanza will impress active adults who are looking to stay active, be social, and learn new hobbies and skills. The large clubhouse will include gathering spaces which can be used for game nights, get-togethers, or more formal events. Inside, there’s a bar, a catering kitchen, a fitness center, and activity rooms. Outdoors, residents can relax at the cabanas by the resort-style swimming pool or lounge in the relaxing spa. There are also plenty of greenspaces and paved trails as well as bocce ball and pickleball courts to enjoy.
