TOP TEMECULA NEIGHBORHOODS!GLENOAK HILLS
Glenoak Hills is around 35 minutes east of the 15 freeway in Temecula, California. In this blog post and video, we will go over some of the amenities, housing costs, availability, and a few of the pros and cons of living in Glenoak Hills, one of the top neighborhoods in Temecula. At the end of this blog post, I created a home search specifically for GlenOak Hills. This home search will keep you up to date every day and show you everything new and available in the area.
Glen Oak Hills is around 1300 acres, just east of many of the wineries in Temecula Wine Country. Glen Oak Hills has land parcels ranging from 2.5 to 10 acres. There are over 300 custom-built homes in the community, and the HOA has amenities that include a clubhouse, two tennis courts, a playground, and a horseback riding arena.
RULES AND REGULATIONS RELATING TO HOA FEE
I have seen homes with HOAs ranging from zero to quarterly to monthly. My advice is to make sure you understand both what the monthly or quarterly fee is and the rules and regulations.
Homes in Glenoak Hills
I don’t usually talk about home prices when it comes to areas of Temecula because they are always changing. That’s why I include a home search link at the bottom of each of my blog posts with the most recent listings and upcoming homes.
The Glenoaks Community does have homes ranging in size from 1300 square feet all the way up to 6500. The average lot size sold over the past 1000 days is around 5 acres. Expect rolling hills, beautiful views, and an agricultural and horse-like feel. There will be homes that are stunning and have been totally remodeled or newly built. There will also be homes that need work, which could provide some great opportunities to get into a home at a lesser price or even flipping possibilities.
What we like about Glenoak Hills
Serene, quiet, peaceful, lots of space, and endless agricultural or horse opportunities are what I would describe GlenOak Hills as being. These properties and homes will keep you busy and can be perfect for a retiree who still wants to work to some degree. If you enjoy landscaping, growing fruits, and vegetables, or riding horses, we highly suggest looking into this area. Glen Oak Hills reminds me a little bit of De Luz. The one benefit of Glen Oak Hills over Deluz is that it will be closer to the wineries and a little bit closer to things you need every day like grocery stores, gasoline, restaurants, etc. If you would like more information on De Luz, I have an in-depth article and video here.
Things to Avoid in Glenoak Hills
If you have never lived in a rural area, it would be tough for me to suggest purchasing a million-dollar home in an area that you have no idea whether or not you’re going to enjoy for an extended period. Aside from the wineries, there are no other amenities in Glen Oak Hills. You will have to drive around 30 minutes to get into town to do anything. Also, there will be a lot of work, especially if you are growing citrus and avocado trees. Having over 5 acres of property will take time, especially if you plan on doing something with the land. Having said that, if you know that you like the rural feel and don’t mind being outside and landscaping, Glenoaks is a great place to settle.
It will also get pretty hot in the summer months; a pool would be a great addition if the home does not already have one. Again, that will be work unless you hire somebody.
