La Paloma CC
In the last 12 years La Paloma has spread its wings and been developed beyond its original borders, which included the subdivisions of La Paloma Ridge Estates, Las Palomitas, Paloma del Sol and Vista Serena on the north side of Sunrise Dr and La Paloma Estates on the south side. And that was it.
That is, until the early 2000’s when AF Sterling stepped in and developed La Paloma, a long single street, Placita Pajaro, that juts north just past the entrance to La P on the north side of Sunrise. And at about the same time, on a large tract of land on south side of Sunrise, they developed the Villages 1, 2, 4 & 5 at La Paloma. And they sold like wild fire. And for good reason, there was nothing else like it in the foothills. Nothing, with new, well built homes in a super convenient, central foothills location on small, easy care lots in a guard-gated community, and all with the name La Paloma, which couldn't hurt.
OK, big build up, let’s see if it lives up to it.
Looking at the more recently developed areas - La Paloma and the Villages 1,2, 4 & 5.
