A review of 55+ community Altis by Pardee Homes.  I attended the Grand Opening billed as "epic" and it was.  One of the best GO's I have attended. 

There was great food, live music, events and a smiling hostess. Starting off right by being greeted by the Social Director just seconds after I entered the crowded clubhouse.    

She warmly pointed out to me all the venues from the map and party guide.  She pointed to the vast stretch of green immediately in front of us.  "That big lawn where people are in line, that's the Event Lawn," she said.  A vast stretch of green, with a backdrop of mountain views of the San Gorgonio and San Jacinto Mountains was where party attendees were waiting for a lunch of sirloin or chicken burgers.

There were also free cocktails, mocktails, beer stands with pretzels or gourmet coffee.  Everything was thought through and managed well. 

She pointed out on the map where all the displays were and how to get there via the golf cart rides and buses from the parking lot.  So off I went feeling much more comfortable. 

The Clubhouse called The VuePoint

55+ community Altis clubhouse by Pardee Homes in Beaumont, Ca.The clubhouse "The VuePoint," from front entrance.

There was a structure to this party, a theme, and a carefully worded idea:  The future is modern and its here now at Altis.  Everything explored that idea from the modern architecture to the "smart home" displays and home features.

The Beaumont Area

96 miles to Los Angeles - about 30 miles to Palm Springs (easy drive down I-10)

Climate can get hot in summer (up to 100 some days) but is 8-12 degrees cooler than Palm Springs area (which is over 100 most days in summer).  Above the smog line -  Magnificent Mt. Gorgonio and San Jacinto Mountains views from community.

Area is expanding population - limited shopping but growing.  There is the popular Cabazon Outlets 10 miles away.   

Many things to do in area.  With major builders of 55+ communities already here, and others coming into the area now, this is a relatively new upcoming area to watch.    Population is still under 100K for Beaumont.

Wood chips and drought-tolerant plants

California is known for its outdoor lifestyle.  When browsing the Altis collections what stood out for me were the many options to inculcate outdoor living spaces into the floorplans.  There were covered patios, solarium like rooms, cozy courtyards and more.  All of these were accented with drought-tolerant plants inside and out. 

In these spaces one can enjoy moments of privacy, meditation, enjoy cool breezes, commune up close with drought-tolerant plantings, and feel the touch of scattered sunlight.  Fountains for tranquil sounds, restful seating, firepits, outdoor cooking, gardening were all on display.
