We're thinking about buying a home in the Heritage Oaks community of Roseville. Even though there is no age

Asked by Sheri, Sat Jul 12, 2008

restrictions, it seems like more of a senior's community. Does anyone know if it's family-friendly. We have 3 sons ages 7-15.

Don't buy in Heritage Oaks. There was a lawsuit about 2 1/2 years ago by a family that was being discriminated against because the older residents were heckling a family that had just moved it. It was terrible. They put up signs at the pool that were not kid friendly and tried to limit the use of things like skateboards and bikes. We lived there and were in our 40's and felt out of place. We were never "welcomed" into the community during the 3 years we lived there and eventually moved as a result.

Hi Sheri,

I'm familiar with Heritage Oaks as i live around the corner on Woodcreek Oaks Golf Course. With a young family, i think you would be happier in the surrounding neighborhoods. Overall, this part of Roseville is wonderful for young families. My kids have gone to Quail Glen Elementary, Silverado Middle School, and are now at Woodcreek High School. Can you tell me a little more about what your looking for and your price range and i can make a few recommendations in terms of neighborhoods for you.

My wife and I are one of the first homeowners here. We chose Heritage Oaks because we felt it would offer a safer place for our special needs son. We are so happy here. All the neighbors are friendly and supportive, the yards and streets are beautifully kept. You and your family will feel safe walking in the evening. People are always out getting exercise or walking their pets. The clubhouse and pool and jacuzzi are a fun place on a hot day!

Are you working with an agent yet? You might want to go and see if you can speak to a resident. Go for a walk in the area with the kids to see how you feel. Inquire with the residents, if you see anyone walking also, whether the community is receptive to families as opposed to a more senior environment. Someone below stated that it is NOT a Senior Community, so if you do want to live there, by all means you should! Your agent should help you investigate this for you as well.

Good luck!

I live in Heritage Oaks and although there are more kids in the neighborhood, I feel it's still a die-hard more senior-friendly community, sadly. I'd like to see more families with children move here but I know it's not a place I'd want to raise my own.

That's a great idea, however, there aren't any close parks right outside of the community but you can visit the community and ask the residence questions at the pool, tennis courts, club house and such; I'm sure there would be more than enough people out to give you a good idea of the community. I have lived and worked in Roseville for 21 years and can personally tell you it's a very welcoming, friendly community. Don't hesitate to check it out.

Have you thought about "hanging out in the local park and etc." determine if you like the area and talk too the residence?

You are correct there is not an age limit in the Heritage Oaks Community and it is family friendly. There are lots of amenities, pool, tennis, club house that the kids can use, and it's close to shopping, schools and fitness centers. Although the community was originally trying to compete with Del Webb it didn't quite work out so they opened it up to everyone and now they are trying to get the word out so it is slowly but surely becoming more of a family communtiy. I hope this helps in your decision to move to Roseville. Please call or email me with any questions you may have regarding the Roseville area, 916-412-2573, geanne_pack@surewest.net
