55+ Homebuyers Seeking Active Life Discover The Vineyards & Rio Vista

Freedom. Connection. Wellness. These words represent the foundation of a holistic, active lifestyle, and according to homebuyers, it’s an engaged way of life and community philosophy that’s become a primary consideration in their search for the ultimate, dream home.

Residents at Trilogy Rio Vista and The Vineyards explain that beyond Trilogy’s superior construction and innovative floor plan designs, Trilogy’s emphasis on well-rounded living is what made the decision to move to Trilogy an easy one.

“Over our eighteen months of looking, we saw some very beautiful homes and communities, but none called out to us,” explained Anna, a Trilogy homeowner. “But, when we came to Trilogy, something clicked. Both my husband and I knew immediately we had found our new home.”

Another Trilogy resident, Ken, added, “We’ve lived at other communities before we chose Trilogy, and this community is, by far, the most outstanding in all aspects. We’ve lived in a Del Webb community before, and we find that the quality at Trilogy is much higher.”

Located near the Delta with easy access to San Francisco, Napa and Tahoe, Rio Vista is an idyllic and authentic small town away from the crowded city. For homeowners who move to Rio Vista, they say the connected feeling and warmth of Rio Vista is hard to explain with words alone.

“What I love about the area is that no matter who drives past you, whether you’ve met or not, everybody waves,” explained Trilogy homeowner Evelyn. “We hadn’t even moved in yet and people were waving. There are no strangers here, and I find that so encouraging.”

Trilogy at Rio Vista features the Vista Club, a 27,000 sq. ft. club that serves as a hub for homeowners to connect with new friends and entertain family. Club amenities include a state-of-the-art fitness center, a Cyber Café, indoor pool and running track, the Rio Vista Golf Club, an 18-hole championship course and more.
