The Oaks, a Common Interest Development in Fountaingrove

The Oak is a common interest, planned unit development in Fountaingrove which is located in the hills above northern Santa Rosa. Fountaingrove is a collection of high-end homes, however, there are a number of more affordable homes on smaller lots that are a fraction of the price of the higher end customs homes nearby.

The Oaks consists of 46 single family homes on smaller lots built between 1994 – 1997. They range in size from as small as 1505 sq ft to the largest unit, 1991 sq ft. Most are either 2 or 3 bedrooms, but there are a few 1 bedroom units that are 1525 sq ft.

In 2016, the following homes sold:

Date:           Address:                            Sq Ft:           Sales Price:

  • 5/16             4424 Lahinch Ln             1527            $459,000
  • 6/16             4434 Bally Bunion           1991            $639,000
  • 7/16             4652 Kilarney Cir            1505            $499,000

    Average:             1644 sq ft    $543,400

The Oaks sits adjacent to the Fountgrove Golf Course and across the street from Paradise Winery. The Oaks has its own pool that overlooks western Santa Rosa.

There is a homeowners association. The HOA name is “The Oaks”. Currently, dues are $519 which includes both The Oaks HOA dues and Fountaingrove Master Association. HOA dues pay for exterior, roof, street, and HOA management. The HOA is currently managed by Berger Management.

The Oaks is a great option for those wanting the convenience and lifestyle of living in Fountaingrove without having to buy a large, expensive custom home. If you are interested in seeing homes for sale, call me and we can set up an appointment to tour homes for sale.

Spring in the Wine Country

Hey mister, can you help a dog out?

img_0442Thinking about getting a puppy or dog for yourself, or the family? Consider getting a Beagle. There is a beagle rescue center in Bennett Valley called Rescue For Northbay Beagles. I know the founder, and she accepts beagles from around the country. Lots come from the south (Mississippi, Alabama etc).

She gets them in batches of 2-8 weekly. I have 2 beagles of my own so I volunteer to foster them at my house if Pam runs out of room. They range in age from puppy to senior. Seems the majority are 3yrs – 7 yrs.

Take my word that beagles are the sweetest, kindest dogs. They love to be held and touched. Generally, they are great walkers (on leash) and love socializing at the local dog park. In my opinion, the only downside is that they are ruled by their noses. That means it’s hard to keep them out of the trash, off the counter, and if they get out, frequently they won’t come when they are called. The cure… if you want a beagle, you need to have a secure place for your kitchen garbage can. You need a completely fenced yard at least 4’ high that a beagle can’t jump over, and you need to pay attention to them. They will want to put their heads in your lap as soon as you sit down. They are hounds so most bay when they are excited. Baying sounds like “Arrrrroooooooo” vs. “woof “or “bark”. It’s cute, and most people at the dog park laugh when mine start baying as they chase and play with other dogs.

If you are interested in adopting a beagle, or just fostering one like me, you should contact Pam at Rescue For Northbay Beagles at (707) 360-7539
