In 1973, the first model homes were built on Century Oak Drive. There was a grand opening and much interest was shown in. this new adult community, with all utilities underground. Building and sales were brisk.
The 9-hole executive golf course proved a major attraction for golfers as well as the beautiful open space it provided for others. In 1948 the Bunney family, one of the original landowners, planted the stately redwood tree on what is now the 5th tee of the golf course. The golf course is open to the public when not reserved for member use.
Construction on the 25,000 square foot clubhouse began in 1974. An active SCA helped support new residents in planning the future of their community. Potlucks were planned every few months to acquaint new homeowners with one another. Various interest groups began forming with much energy and enthusiasm, which continues to this today.
Five kinds of housing were built: single family homes, townhouses and condominiums of which more than 95% are owner occupied; the apartments and the Clubhouse Estates were built as rental units. The Clubhouse Estates provides meals and certain other services for ambulatory guests who choose that lifestyle.
