Ready to Retire in Roseville CA?
Are you looking to retire in Roseville CA? Did you know there are FOUR lovely active senior retirement communities Roseville CA enjoys? Long time readers might, as I've shared about each of them here and there in my blog posts. I've even compared two of them – The Club at Westpark-Del Webb and Del Webb Sun City Roseville CA. Plus I've done a couple of virtual open houses with homes for sale in Sun City Roseville – including this virtual open house for a lovely home that is a delightful Regent floor plan with two masters that is still available. I've also written posts about the Silverado homes at Eskaton Village.
But now our fourth and the newest of these fun and active senior adult communities is growing beautifully and even starting to have resale homes available, not to mention new construction homes for sale in Roseville that are finished, sometimes have move-in ready options and occasionally can even be found on the MLS! That makes it a good time to share even more of the great things I've learned about each of them while showing them off to my real estate clients.
Lennar Heritage Solaire Roseville CA
Lennar Heritage Solaire in Roseville CA is a gated active senior retirement community full of beautiful homes, fun things to do, minimal yard maintenance, and more. These smart homes for seniors have the latest in technology to help you retire in Roseville CA and then run your home when you are at home AND and away, if you so choose. So if you're off on a cruise or heading out of state to visit long distance grandkids, think how handy that could be!
At this point in time, they still have many homes to complete, as their goal is a total of 493 homes. Thus you can easily go in, pick out your home, customize it a bit if you want, and wait for it to be built.
BUT if you don't want to wait, they often have one or two new construction homes available to move in right away. Plus, some people who moved in when they first opened around 2018 are beginning to move and sell their homes. Both routes usually mean you get your back yard installed already – always a plus with brand new homes in Roseville or beyond. (And sometimes, they don't have them listed anywhere but check with me if you're interested as I may have an update or two on them – 916-768-0127)
At Heritage Solaire, Lennar has built a lovely and active community center called the Sol Centre. Walking around outside, you will find a tennis court, pickleball courts, community gardens, a lovely Junior-Olympic-sized swimming pool with a patio area full of seating, BBQ area and picnic tables, a shade structure with an outdoor bar, an amphitheater and lawn area, a lounge with a fire table and the courtyard area, as well as bocce ball lanes.
Head into the Sol Centre and you'll discover plenty of fun activities going on (when there isn't a quarantine, although some things have already opened back up). Inside the center, which is approximately 5,900 square feet, you can enjoy a state of the art fitness center, the aerobics and exercise room, a massage room, club room, kitchen, and more. Some of the past clubs included: gardening, watching sports events with friends, playing cards, reading and sharing what you've read, eating healthy, scrapbooking, etc.
Speaking of pickleball – are you curious what it is? Here's one fun video about it – and if you'd like to see more, just click here for my whole playlist.
One VERY IMPORTANT TIP – for this and ALL brand new construction homes in Roseville AND the surrounding area. If you decided to retire in Roseville CA in one of these or another brand new home, you always want to have your own real estate agent to help guide you through the process and be watching out primarily for you. Yes, you can use the agents the builder provide. However they will be primarily looking out for their builder. You need someone looking out primarily for you. AND if you call or email me (916-768-0127 – KayeSwainRE@gmail.com ) to be your agent, I gift an upgraded home warranty to ALL my buyers at close of escrow. Normally that is for one year. But for brand new homes, it's generally FOUR YEARS!!! BUT the builders will only allow you to have an agent of your own IF you bring the agent with you to register the very first time you visit.
Enjoy these videos of their various floor plans…
Real Estate Market Update for Heritage Solaire Roseville CA
Here are the 7 Heritage Solaire homes that have sold on the MLS in the past 6 months – with a mix of brand new and resale. (Most brand new homes are not listed on the MLS. Because this is a fairly new community, there are very few homes showing up on the MLS. But it does give you a bit of a real estate market update for this lovely retirement community during the quarantine period.
Here are the homes currently available for resale (if no photos are showing, most likely there aren't any available OR it's not correctly marked for the search. And if you see duplicates, it's because different agents mark different boxes. Most of the time, I don't worry about it but since there are so few options and they are GREAT options, I've put every search here. Be sure to check back regularly as this updates whenever a new one comes on the market. Even better, let me set you up with a search directly from the MLS where there are even more great tools for deeper dives into the MLS.)
The Club at Westpark-Del Webb
The homes in Del Webb's The Club at Westpark Roseville were built from about 2006-2014. It has around 704 homes on 1,483 acres. One of their great features is that what many homebuilders offered as upgrades like upgraded appliances, granite countertops, etc. were standard inclusions for The Club at Westpark, giving them all a very “high-end” appeal.
The homes are really lovely, offer mature landscaping that you might miss with a newer home, and your front yard lawn care is included in the HOA – and that includes mowing, weeding, trimming bushes, and fertilizing the lawns. Talk about an easy way to retire in Roseville CA!
The 10,000-square-foot recreational center has an outdoor swimming pool and spa, bocce ball courts, a barbecue area, and a fireplace terrace along with the fitness center that includes exercise equipment, an aerobics room, and 24-hour access. Inside you'll also enjoy the library, business center, lounge area, kitchen, and a card and billiards room. During the summers residents can enjoy fun outdoor concerts and they also enjoy holiday fun in the winter including crab feeds, New Year's celebrations, and more. etc.
Check out these fun videos I discovered from what I'm guessing were one of their summer shindigs on the patio by the pool. They definitely had me tapping my toes and singing along – especially for Sweet Caroline! 😉
Some of their many clubs in the past have included:
- Apple iClub,
- Bicycle riding in groups
- Chair Volleyball
- Walking in a group
- Ping pong
- Wii Bowling
- And many more

Here are some of the homes for sale The Club at Westpark Roseville CA:
Del Webb-Sun City Roseville CA
The largest of the retirement communities Roseville CA offers, and probably the most famous, is Del Webb's Sun City Roseville CA. Sun City's 3,110 homes were built from about 1989 – 2000. Many have been beautifully upgraded and look brand new. All have great floor plans and many offer lovely views of gorgeous greenbelts and wild life or one of the pristine golf courses. Definitely a lovely way to retire in Roseville CA.
Because it's so big, it can offer a few extra advantages. Like:
2 beautiful golf courses
- 1 9-hole golf course – Sierra Pines Golf Course
- 1 18-hole golf course – Timber Creek Golf Course

2 swimming pools – both are good sized!

It also offers the full service deli I mentioned above as well as a kitchenette along with meeting rooms inside.
For independent walkers like me – who don't golf and rarely join clubs (real estate and grandkids definitely keep me hopping – what keeps you busy? Leave a comment before or over at my new Facebook Group Page – Roseville Retirement Living and yes, you are officially invited to join) – there is still plenty to enjoy. The grounds are such a sweet delight. I never get tired of the scenery which includes their designated bird sanctuary as well as over 100 acres of nature preserves and open space. It's fun to meet new friends and say hi to old friends if any are out and about (sometimes I end up walking in the heat of the day – definitely fewer people out then! And ohhhh, the cute doggies walking with their owners. So adorable! And don't forget the lovely walking and biking trails on both sides of Sun City Roseville as you can easily link up to the City of Roseville walking trails and biking trails in both directions!
