Welcome to The Summit

Welcome to The Summit in El Dorado Hills, an exclusive gated community nestled near the scenic Folsom Lake. This luxurious neighborhood offers an unparalleled living experience, with spacious custom homes and breathtaking lake views that set the stage for your dream lifestyle.
 
What makes The Summit truly unique is its environmentally conscious approach to vegetation control. Once a year, adorable and eco-friendly goats are brought in to graze through the neighborhood, nibbling on troublesome star thistles, poison oak, and other nuisance plants. This green alternative not only enhances the natural beauty of the area but also helps reduce the prevalence of invasive grasses, creating a harmonious relationship with the environment.
 
At the heart of this community lies a vibrant social scene with numerous resident-focused events. The annual Ice Cream Social in spring brings neighbors together for delightful ice cream sundaes and children's lawn games, fostering a close-knit and friendly atmosphere. In the fall, residents embrace the festive spirit during Ocktoberfest, indulging in mouthwatering BBQ bratwurst, hot dogs, sauerkraut, and German music, while children enjoy pumpkin decorating. These events create lasting memories and a genuine sense of belonging among residents.
 
For outdoor enthusiasts, The Summit offers access to a historic trail leading from Hathaway Ct. to Folsom Lake State Recreation Area, a path once trodden by prospectors during the California Gold Rush. This connection to the past adds a touch of adventure and wonder to daily life.
 
Families will appreciate The Summit's prime location within the esteemed Rescue Union School District. Children attend top-rated schools, including Lake Forest Elementary School, Marina Middle School, and Oak Ridge High School, ensuring them an exceptional education and a bright future.
 
Residents of The Summit are further treated to a well-maintained neighborhood park at Lakecrest and Crocker, featuring a large play structure, tennis court, and ample BBQ space. This park serves as the perfect gathering spot for fun-filled weekends with family and friends.
 
The Summit's Homeowners Association ensures a hassle-free and beautifully maintained community. With a reasonable monthly fee of approximately $175, the HOA covers association management, gate maintenance, and the preservation of picturesque common areas, providing residents with peace of mind and more time to savor the splendid surroundings.
 
Discover the charm of The Summit, where the serenity of lake views, the warmth of community, and the unique goat grazing experience all combine to create an exceptional place to call home.
