The Retreat Neighborhood In Corona CA

The Neighborhood Of The Retreat

The Retreat is a large gated community in Corona, California as well as a south Corona neighborhood. Actually, it is located in the Temescal Valley south of Corona.

The Retreat Corona gated community offers a number of “executive” homes. These are expansive homes. For example, many of them have five bedrooms and five bathrooms and cover 4000 to 5500 square feet. You’ll find amenities like wine cellars, house-spanning balconies, jack and jill bathrooms, front and rear stairways and large formal dining rooms. There are more than 500 homes inside of the Retreat HOA. But it is hard to find a home for less than a million dollars in this subdivision. The oldest homes were built in 1986. Construction slowed dramatically in the 1990s. The area saw a wave of foreclosures in the 2007 housing crisis but has since rebounded.

The Retreat’s HOA maintains a pool, clubhouse and golf course for residents. The gated community’s private golf course has 18 holes. That is much smaller than the expansive Eagle Glen Golf Club; that’s a par-72 golf course that has its own restaurant. The Retreat also has 24 hour manned security gates. HOA dues are more than two hundred dollars a month to help cover the associated costs. In contrast, many other HOAs in Corona charge a hundred dollars a month or less.

The Retreat neighborhood itself has more than five thousand residents. The average age of home owners here is 46 according to Census data. Roughly ninety percent of residents own their homes. In the larger Retreat area, you can find three and four bedroom homes.

Most students are assigned to Temescal Valley Elementary School. That K-6 public school was rated a ten out of ten by Greatschools. Middle school students go on to El Cerrito Middle School. That was rated an eight out of ten by Greatschools. As the name implies, it is the El Cerrito area north of The Retreat. Students in ninth grade and up go to Santiago High School. That’s located at 1395 Foothill Parkway. Parents can ask for their children to go to Lee Pollard High School in downtown Corona. All of these schools are in the Corona-Norco Unified School District.

The neighborhood is accessed via Retreat Parkway. That road intersects with the southbound access road for Highway 15 as well as connects with Knabe Road. Retreat Parkway connects with Sanctuary Drive. That simply dead ends into the mountains, but a number of smaller residential streets branch off of it. The Retreat Parkway turns into Forest Boundary Road after you pass the manned gate. Beyond McKnabe Road, there isn’t easy access to cross-streets to the south like Clay Canyon Road or Hunt Road and Lawson Road.

This neighborhood is not walkable. On the other hand, there are a number of hiking trails only accessible to residents.

You’re going to need a car to get anywhere. Residents can drive to the nearby Dos Lagos shopping center. There isn’t really any public transit unless you go to Dos Lagos or drive into downtown Corona.
