The Rilington Group Announces Domani, An Exciting New 55+ Community

The Rilington Group is excited to announce development has begun on its newest gated community, Domani. Conveniently located off Adams and Avenue 40 in the sphere of influence of Palm Desert, Domani offers easy access to shops, dining, recreation and entertainment. Domani is an age restricted (55+) community with the in-demand amenities of much larger communities in an intimate setting. Domani’s 202 single family detached homes will be priced from the high $200,000’s.

Grading and infrastructure on Domani began in December 2016. Construction on Domani’s model homes and clubhouse begins in June 2017, with all five models scheduled to open early 2018.

Domani’s distinctive Early California styled architecture compliment five unique plans, ranging in size from 1586 (2 Bed + Retreat/2.5 Bath) to 1893 square feet (3 Bed/ 3.5 Bath). All homes are orientated for indoor/outdoor living and feature courtyards and backyard spaces.


“From my perspective as a long time builder, we are offering the right product in the right location at the right price point – and that is exciting for me,” notes Mickie Riley, Rilington’s President and Founder. “We feel that a community with 202 homes is a nice size and fills a market niche. Our active buyers ready for their next stage of fun can live in an affordable, beautifully designed, high quality home with multiple amenities – without being in a large master planned community with thousands of units,” Riley adds.


Features often sold as upgrades that make the difference in a home are standard at Domani, including granite kitchen counters, maple cabinets and ceramic tile master baths. Domani’s recreation center, the community’s centerpiece, will feature a fully landscaped pool, bocce ball courts, pickle ball court, a fitness center featuring the latest audio and video technology, and a nature trail for walking.


Developing Domani is a calculated step for the Rilington Group, following thorough research of the Coachella Valley’s 55+ active market.

Vic Cooper of Market Watch has tracked real estate activity and trends in the Coachella Valley since the 70’s. “The Coachella Valley’s 55 plus market continues to grow quickly. Consider that the boomer market is growing, with 10,000 people turning 65 every day for the next 19 years. There is an external demand pool for living in the Coachella Valley. It is one of the primary retirement destinations for Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego Counties. Then add in the secondary markets with buyers from the Pacific Northwest and you have strong demand,” Cooper explains. “Domani’s key central valley location priced under the $350,000 range for the active adult fills a void.” That’s good news for Domani buyers and the Coachella Valley housing market.
