Golf Course Homes

The Golf Course Homes neighborhood is one of the largest communities and features 437 detached single story homes that surround the main course at St. Mark Golf Club. These homes are situated on San Pablo and San Julian Drive and offer a wide variety of sizes, floor plans and features. All of the homes are at least 2 bedrooms and start around 1,500 sq. ft. and can get as big as 3,000+ sq. ft. One of the main selling feature of these homes is the breathtaking golf course views from your private back yard. The lot sizes of these homes are on the generous side, giving you breathing room between your neighbors. Being single-loaded streets, means you only ever have neighbors next door, never behind you.

This community has no HOA fees, but is still maintained by the Lake San Marcos Architectural Committee, to help maintain a cohesive neighborhood look. Pride in ownership can be seen throughout.

One of the more attractive aspects about these homes is their overall design. Almost all of the golf course homes are built with a full roof truss system, which means that any interior walls are non-load bearing. This makes it much easier to remove walls and create the ever-so popular open-concept feeling. There are some homes that have been completely renovated with modern touches while others still stay true to their 1960’s architecture and style. This offers people the opportunity to step into a time capsule and enjoy life circa 1965 or have the opportunity to update a home and bring it into the 21st century.

One of the more desirable aspects of this HOA is the maintenance aspect. The HOA takes care of all exterior maintenance, making it very easy to maintain these properties. One of the large attractions of living in this community is not having to worry about any large expenditures – roof, termite, landscaping, etc. Instead, you pay a set amount on a monthly basis to the HOA and they take care of any issues. This makes it easy to establish and live within your budget. While they are considered condominiums, they feel and live like single family homes.
