IS RANCHO BERNARDO PRIMARILY A SENIOR COMMUMITY?
Many people think Rancho Bernardo is primarily a senior Community, but it really has a much broader mixture of residents. There are two major industrial parks plus businesses in the general area that employ many of the town’s residents. It’s easy access to major highways makes it convenient for commuting to many areas in San Diego County. The original plan was to provide good schools, recreational facilities and many styles of housing that would attract people to such a diversified community. Rancho Bernardo is part of the city of San Diego, but has its own representatives and a very active community council. The original planners saw the need for”Senior only” housing and planned two separate areas for just this purpose. This forward thinking during the planning stages of Rancho Bernardo has resulted in a very successful cosmopolitan place to live
The original planned senior community is called Seven Oaks. This community is located near the original shopping area of Rancho Bernardo and includes condos and homes that are all single level. Seven Oaks has a community center with a heated swimming pool, a work out center, a library, and many craft facilities. Some of the homes are located on elevated lots with views of the mountains and hills. Many homes are close to shopping, banks and the post office. One owner/resident must be 55 years or older. Additional information can be obtained on the Seven Oaks Community website.
The second senior community is called Oaks North and was built later. It is located near a 27 hole golf course called (what else) the Oaks North Golf Course which is owned an operated by The Rancho Bernardo Inn Resort and is open to the public. The golf course is layed out in such a way that many of the condos and homes have golf course views. Some of the condos are built with two stories but the units are all on one level. There are many different kinds of living areas in Oaks North including one gated community. The Oaks North Community Center is located near the golf course and there are tennis courts and lawn bowling adjacent to the center. Please click on Oaks North Community Center for more detailed information. As in Seven Oaks, the age restriction is 55 years and older for at least one resident.
FOR THE YOUNGER SENIORS
For “empty nesters” and people who just want to scale down to a smaller house and less property there are many other areas in Rancho Bernardo, including both the 92128 and 92127 zip codes, with neighborhoods each providing their own recreation centers. In the early 1980s, for example, many patio homes were built to accommodate this kind of home owner. The Rancho Bernardo Community Park has excellent facilities with outdoor tennis courts, ball fields and hiking trails. There are two private golf courses and the Rancho Bernardo Innhas a18 hole course that is open to the public. These golf courses provide fairway views for many homes in the area. Also, views of the mountains and hills that surround Rancho Bernardo are available from many of the homes.
