When active adults desire the climate and beauty of California but don’t want to get caught up in the crowds, they find exactly what they need in the Inland Empire area. Nestled right in the heart of the Inland Empire area are two premier active adult communities for those 55 and better, Four Seasons at Hemet and Solera Diamond Valley.


Mountains and lakes are the backdrop for these two communities, spectacular and impressive all by themselves. Four Seasons at Hemet has 1,106 homes and views of the San Jacinto Mountains and Hemet Golf Club. The smaller Solera Diamond Valley, with 573 homes, has the San Gorgonio and Santa Rosa Mountains to the north and east. Diamond Valley Lake (a large, non-contact reservoir that offers boating, fishing and a trail system) is just three miles south of Solera Diamond Valley and 20 minutes from Four Seasons at Hemet.

But inside these two communities is where magnificence really becomes apparent: breathtaking homes, pools, clubhouses, and resort-style living that rival the pages of a magazine.

Four Seasons at Hemet

Four Seasons at Hemet, built by K. Hovnanian between 2003 and 2011, offers homes throughout the Masters, Legends, Invitationals and Championship Collection. These 12 single-family floor plans range from 1,444 to 2,800 square feet with a variety of exterior colors and styles to suit the buyers’ choice. Homes have two to three bedrooms or two with a den, up to three bathrooms and a two or two-and-a-half-car garage. Depending on the collection, other features include front porches, side courtyards, granite countertops, and tile or hardwood flooring.

Solera Diamond Valley 

Solera Diamond Valley, a Del Webb community that opened in 2006 with construction ongoing, offers homes within the Mountain View Series, Diamond Valley Series and Living Well Collection. These collections offer 18 single-family ranch-style models that are all between 1,240 to 2,370 square feet with two to three bedrooms, up to three bathrooms, a two or two-and-a-half-car garage, volume ceilings, and a covered porch or patio. Upgrades in some of the homes have Corian countertops, gourmet kitchens, spa-like bathrooms, and enlarged living rooms.

Resale Homes 

Given that the communities are both so beautiful, the only deciding factor may be the new or resale factor. Four Seasons at Hemet only has resale homes available; the Mountain View and Diamond Valley Series of Solera Diamond Valley are resale-only as well, but the Living Well Collection has both new and resale houses. In addition, Four Seasons at Hemet is gated, while Solera Diamond Valley is not.

Amenities at Four Seasons at Hemet 

Beyond the homes, each community has an expansive line-up of amenities and activities. The Lodge is Four Seasons at Hemet’s 14,859 square-foot clubhouse, which includes a ballroom, movie theater, hair salon, library, computer room, billiards and card rooms, a bistro and BBQ area, fitness center, and more.

Amenities at Solera Diamond

Solera Diamond Valley’s 23,000 square-foot Mountain View Lodge has a fitness center with indoor lap pool and spa, indoor walking track, and aerobics studio, plus craft and hobby studios, a ballroom, billiards rooms, a library, and computer stations. Outdoors, both communities have resort-style pools and spas (one at Four Seasons, two at Solera), tennis courts, bocce ball courts, and pickleball courts. Four Seasons at Hemet also has shuffleboard and horseshoe pits.

Local Cities

Location-wise, Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego are all about two hours from both communities, as well as Joshua Tree National Park. More attractions in Palm Springs are located about an hour east. Closer to both communities are Lake Perris State Recreation Area and the San Bernardino National Forest.

When active adults want beautifully appointed homes and breathtaking backdrops outside their front doors, either Four Seasons at Hemet or Solera Diamond Valley are equally impressive 55+ communities in Hemet, California.
