Peacock Hills, A 55+ Residential
Southern California Coastal Living
Nestled in a balmy enclave 6 ½ miles from the Pacific Ocean in Oceanside, Southern California, residents of the 920 homes in Peacock Hills Senior Community enjoy the benefits, understanding and camaraderie of a strictly-enforced, 55-years-of-age or older neighborhood.
Moderate year-round weather provides an average daytime 77-degrees temperature in the warm season July through September, and an average daytime 66-degress in the cool season January through March.
With all-year smogless skies, life in Peacock Hills is generally quiet and peacefull, with very broad avenues, paved sidewalks, lighted streets and well-maintained homes.
The Community is self-governed by an elected group of resident volunteers, the Board of Directors. All homes are condominiums. Peacock Hills was established without common areas to maintain, so annual membership dues are only $72.
The residences are divided into four neighborhoods, with two Directors each.
The area surrounding the community offers all the conveniences of modern living: large grocery markets, every type of shopping experience, restaurants, theaters, local-full-service-acute-care-397-bed-hospital and a very large selection of medical, dental and complementary healthcare facilities, houses of worship for every denomination, three local senior centers, 900-boat harbor and marina, miles of beaches, golfing, nearby bus and rail transportation systems, airport, large community college, large botanical garden; the list goes on and on.
A 20 minute drive to the south takes visitors to the famous Del Mar Race Track to watch horse racing. Drive a bit further and enter San Diego, and experience Sea World, Mission Bay, bike trails, Old Town, San Diego Zoo and the huge Balboa Park, among many, many other daytime and nightlife entertainments. Other nearby attractions include quaint Mission San Luis Rey, Palomar Mountain Observatory with its famous Hale telescope, San Diego Wild Animal Park, hiking trails plus many inland desert and mountain communities. A taste of another culture can be enjoyed in Tijuana, colorful Old Mexico, less than 60 minutes away to the south.

With the recording of the new CC&R'S we are legally a senior community and have included in our CC&Rs the age requirement of age 55 as in the California Civil Code Section 51.3 and the Federal Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 as amended. Phase I, Phase II and Phase III are incorporated.
We have a Board of Directors that meets monthly to govern our community. They have done an outstanding job of maintaining Peacock Hills as a senior community, safe and attractive. Our community speaks for itself, homes have now appreciated in value with some recently selling at $200,000 and more (by 2006).
This is an update on our Community. In November 2004 the Peacock Hills Board of Directors of each of the four phases of Peacock Hills voted to merge the four phases of 920 homes into one unit. Ballots were mailed to all the Homeowners to vote on the proposed merger and for the new CC&Rs and Bylaws.
On January 10, 2005 the ballots were counted in the law offices of our attorney, Mr. Alan Burson, and the majority of the Homeowners in each of the four units voted to merge the 920 homes composed of Phase I, II, III and IV and the entity to be known as Peacock Hills Senior Community Association, Inc.
The President and Secretary of Peacock Hills Senior Community Association, Inc. signed the "Certification of Adoption" of the new Declaration of Restrictions, their signatures were notarized and it was mailed to the San Diego County Recorder Office. The document was recorded on January 14, 2005.
This is an update as of February 2006. Our original CC&Rs dating back to 1976 stated that the yearly assessment would be $36.00 per year per home. The assessment has never been increased. Due to escalating operating costs the Board of Directors was faced with the unpleasant task to increase the annual assessment to $72.00 per year per home. The Board also decided to amend other sections of the existing CC&Rs and submit it for a vote to the Peacock Hills Homeowners. The amendments were mailed to the Homeowners for their vote. The majority of the Homeowners voted for the following: Section 3.1.1, Increase assessment to $72.00 per annum effective April 1, 2006. Section 3.3, Interest on nonpayment of assessment to be 7%. Section 9.5, Nuisances - revise original write-up. Section 9.12, Height Limitation. Section 9.13, Temporary & Accessory Buildings. Section 9.6.1, Garage and Other Exterior Doors added, and Section 9.19, Parking Restrictions added. The preceding Amendments and Additions to the existing CC&Rs were recorded at the San Diego County Recorder's Office on January 25, 2006.
The Board of Directors have set up a program of self management supplemented by contractors for accounting, legal service, phone answering and other services as may be required.
The Board Members deserve a great deal of praise for their dedication and endless hours of work spent in making Peacock Hills an outstanding model of a residential Senior Community.
