Presales Begin at Cielo at Sand Creek in Antioch, California


Prospective homebuyers with their eye on the East San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California will want to keep a close eye on an exciting new opportunity. Active adults can realize significant savings with a new pricing promotion at the up-and-coming Cielo at Sand Creek development under construction by Century Communities in Antioch, California.

A Presale Pricing Advantage

Cielo at Sand Creek currently plans to include two gated communities, one age-restricted neighborhood and one active lifestyle neighborhood open to all ages. The 55+ neighborhood, Vive, will offer two collections of one- and two-story floor plans. The active lifestyle neighborhood, Prosper, will offer its own collection of one- and two-story floor plans.

Models will open for tours at a grand opening event later this year. But before that happens, interested homebuyers can find the brand new home of their dreams at a special presale price.

“This is a great time for buyers to take advantage of pre-grand opening pricing on these amazing floor plans which will appeal to both families and 55+ [buyers]. Cielo offers homeowners finely appointed living space in a quality home surrounded by exceptional amenities,” said James Fletcher of Century Communities.

Spacious Single-Family Homes

Century Communities began construction of Cielo at Sand Creek earlier this year with plans to construct 337 single-family homes total within its two gated neighborhoods. The 55+ section, Vive, will consist of 241 homes, while the active lifestyle section, Prosper, will include 96 homes.

Vive homebuyers can choose from ten different floor plans across two collections. The one- and two-story homes will range from approximately 1,508 to 2,965 square feet. The single-story ranch-style homes will offer an opportunity for one-level living.

Prosper homebuyers can browse five different floor plans from one collection. Homes will range from about 1,989 to 3,073 square feet. Features in select homes include loft spaces, additional guest bedrooms, and luxury master suites.

A Convenient Location

Located in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area, the city of Antioch provides close proximity to Oakland and San Francisco. Built along the San Joaquin River, the city boasts a rich history, an active cultural scene, and abundant dining and retail opportunities.

Residents who want to visit the San Francisco and Sacramento areas will be able to drive to both in just over an hour. Throughout the Sacramento area, the pace of life is somewhat slower than in other large California cities, and the people are generally warm and friendly. According to Time Magazine, Sacramento has been one of the most diverse cities in the country.

Cielo at Sand Creek will also be served by the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) system, with the Antioch BART station just 10 minutes away. This public transportation system currently serves three counties and connects San Francisco and Oakland, with plans to expand to San Jose with extensions to Silicon Valley. This easy access to public transportation will allow active adults to travel throughout the Bay Area with convenience.

Abundant Outdoor Recreation

Active adult residents of Cielo at Sand Creek who want to be outdoors will find plenty of choices for recreation. Throughout Antioch, there are 11 miles of walking paths that connect its communities and neighborhoods to parks and schools. With 31 parks covering a total of 310 acres, Antioch has an additional 600 acres of city-owned open space.

Within its boundaries are Contra Loma Regional Park, the Antioch/Oakley Regional Shoreline, and Black Diamond Mines Regional Park. Residents can also find the Mokelumne Coast to Crest Trail and Delta de Anza Regional Trail. Just outside city limits is the 1,911-acre Round Valley Regional Preserve, ideal for hiking, biking, and horseback riding.

Antioch Dunes National Wildlife Refuge, established in 1980, earns the distinction as the first national wildlife refuge in the country tasked with protecting endangered plants and insects, like the Lange’s metalmark butterfly, Antioch Dunes evening primrose, and Contra Costa wallflower. The refuge and a few acres of surrounding lands contain most of the remaining habitat for these three species and are all that remain of a stretch of sand dunes formed during the Ice Ages.

The city also has a municipal marina, along with private marinas, boatyards, and yacht clubs. There is a public fishing pier in town and another near the Antioch Bridge, also known as Nejedly Bridge. Those who like to fish can do so in the San Joaquin River along the Antioch/Oakley Regional Shoreline, located just upstream from Highway 160.
