The first community is called Colony Cove. The cottages were in the mid 1960's and feature two to three bedroom cottage and bungalow style houses. The houses are located close to each other with small grassy areas located between the houses. Walking from house to house literally is steps away so a true sense of community exists here. Most of the homes in the community don't have views unless you are located on the perimeter or on the ocean front. Ocean front homes normally sell in the $700,000 while ocean view homes start in the mid $500,000. Currently, homes start at $449,000 but homes do come on the market in the mid $300,000, the key is to act quickly when they do come up.
The second community is called Bay Cliff Village. This community is located very close to Colony Cove and just blocks to the sandy beach. The neighborhood itself is very small and is located on just one small area where the homes are also located very close to each other. The homes are not situated to have ocean views and you will only find a very small community clubhouse so you are buying more for the location than anything else. Bay Cliff Village homes currently start in the low $400,000 range.
The third community is the Talega Gallery community. These homes start at $600,000 and can go as high as $1,000,000. The properties are all single level except for a select few that are two story. Even the two story homes have all the bedrooms located on the main level with a large loft and small guest bedroom located upstairs. The homes sell very quickly in this community since they have been built a little more than 10 years ago. The community is gated and the association features a nice pool, spa, fitness center, meeting rooms and large ballroom. The clubhouse almost has daily activities for it's residents and it's very much an active lifestyle if you live here. Keep in mind this community is located a little more than a mile to the beach and you do have the extra Talega association fee and Mello Roos tax.
