There is so much to love about the community that we call Mountain House. It’s in a beautiful location, it’s family-oriented, the amenities are fabulous, and the events bring all of our residents together! Although, the spectacular villages are what makes our community shine.
Inspired by warm and inviting Italian villages, Questa Village is the perfect place to call home for growing families. Both its homes and atmosphere reflect the Tuscan countryside, giving it loads of charm and appeal to those in search of a new home in the bay area!
Residents of Questa can enjoy taking their families to the five-acre neighborhood park, which includes a playground, basketball court, and lots of space to have picnics, play frisbee, or catch up on some reading under the clouds!
PLUS, if you’re looking for a home that is in close proximity to great schools, all of the villages at Mountain House include an elementary school for our littlest residents! And at Questa, kids are within walking distance to Sebastian Questa Elementary School.
Our neighborhood in Questa Village is Umbria, built by Shea Homes. This exciting new addition to Mountain House has four distinct floorplans with homes that range from 2,488-3,925 square feet, with 3-6 bedrooms and 2.5-4 baths! Two of these floor plans also include “Suite Homes,” which offer flexibility for a variety of living arrangements.
If you have any questions about Questa, or any of our Mountain House Villages, come visit us at the Welcome Center! You can also contact us at (209) 221-6319, visit the MH website, or follow our Facebook page!
