Industry Expert Review

The community offers a wide mix of housing choices which range from Co-Ops, Condominiums and single family homes. There is something for every budget here with prices ranging from the mid $200's to over $1M. 

Most of the amenity buildings feature ageless designs made of stone, wood timbers and lots of glass, which has allowed the community to age gracefully without looking old. Rossmoor has done a great job with updating buildings as necessary and the community still looks well manicured and freshly painted. The community offers a great lifestyle, great value and great location and should make your short list if you desire to live in this area.
