8 Reasons Why You Should Start the New Year at Mountain House


If you think a new home for the new year has a nice ring to it as much as we do, you’ve come to the right place! We’re sharing why you should #MakeYourselfAtMountainHouse in 2020.

A place to belong

Are you looking for that once-in-a-lifetime town where you can plant some roots and watch your kids grow? An established community with tree-lined streets where kids can safely walk to school and you know all your neighbors' names? This is the place! Families flock to Mountain House because of the feeling they experience when they get here: welcomed, included, and part of a true hometown. It’s visceral, it’s real, and it can be yours, too. Get a glimpse of what belonging looks like at Mountain House.

It takes a village

The small village concept is at the heart of our vision of creating a welcoming and thriving community. Each village or neighborhood is designed to encourage connection, each with its own elementary school and park. It’s not uncommon to see families outdoors and walking the sidewalks, children playing, neighbors chatting. It’s the Mountain House way, and it’s been attracting families from the Tri-Valley, Bay Area, and beyond for years. 

Attainable new homes for every stage of life

With nine new neighborhoods and more than 20 model homes, we have a home that works perfectly for the way YOU want to live. From newlyweds and families just starting out to mature families and empty nesters, we’ve got a home for that! And as more families are living with multiple generations under the same roof, our exceptional group of homebuilders are crafting homes with multi-generational suites, suite homes, and other options so everyone’s happy and comfy.

Access to major employment centers

Our community’s location just east of Livermore off of Interstate 205 puts you in proximity to Bay Area and Silicon Valley employers. We’re also very excited about the Valley Link Project that will connect Tri-Valley ACE routes to BART, providing much-needed light rail service from Mountain House to the Bay Area. Operations are expected in the next several years with groundbreaking anticipated in the next year or two. Learn more about Valley Link HERE

Community events that bring people together

Mountain House families are a social bunch and always looking for ways to connect with each other! Your calendar will never be empty herefrom food truck Fridays and the weekly farmers market to beloved annual events like our Kite Festival and Tree Lighting and many more, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get outside and get to know your neighbors! Check out some of our events and clubs HERE

Parks and trails

Speaking of getting outside, if you like outdoor recreation, you’re gonna LOVE it here. Meet up with friends at Central Park for a pickup game, picnic, or playdate. Cool off during the summer with the kids at the splash pad. Gather at one of the neighborhood parks and break a sweat at the soccer and baseball fields, or hit the ground running on any one of our trails through and around the community. And the Mountain House Creek Recreation Area offers a 5K path for walking and running through a scenic greenbelt along the water. Get to know the adventure that awaits HERE

A+ schools

Living here means enjoying the peace of mind that your kids are being prepared for college and the world beyond. Lammersville Unified School District is among the select few that earned the honor of California Exemplary School District in 2019, and Mountain House High School is a California Distinguished School recognized for its innovation, curriculum, and programs that contribute to powerful academic outcomes.
