Creekside Village is an active 55+ community in northern California, conveniently located between the village of Sonoma and the Sonoma Valley hills to the southwest. It’s just a pleasant 10-minute drive past vineyards and farmers’ fields to Sonoma’s historic central plaza. And under an hour south to San Francisco or west to the ocean.
Our 313 single-family homes were built from 1981 to 1989. Most have two bedrooms and two baths in five floorplans ranging in size from about 1250 to 1543 square feet. There are also a few homes of approximately 1872 square feet with three bedrooms and two baths. Over the years, some people have expanded their home or added a solarium.
Two things give rise to Creekside's distinctive vibe. One is the exquisite and diverse landscaping along our streets, walking paths and public spaces, all maintained by our HOA. There actually is a creek in Creekside, so your walks might lead you beside a quiet stream, under oaks and redwoods, to a bench at our pond or along a neighboring vineyard.
Additionally, all our homes are distinctive A-frames in style and painted in neutral tones, although they differ interestingly in profile and in their cedar, clapboard or shakes siding. Each one is surrounded by a wood privacy fence and whatever manner of personal garden the owner may create.
Inside, our homes feature soaring 17-foot vaulted living-room ceilings. They may include as many as five skylights, a gas fireplace, a dining room, a breakfast area, two or three patios or decks and perhaps an atrium. All have two-car garages. Over the years, many owners may have personalized their homes with upgraded materials and finishes.
A free city bus through Creekside provides convenient transportation to the Sonoma Plaza and connections to transport hubs.
Some Creeksiders have retired here from nearby or far away. Others are still working or active volunteers. All welcome you as a visitor or neighbor.
