Fair Oaks EcoHousing, a cohousing community with a strong green focus, was designed to recreate the experience of living in a small, friendly village. We are excited to announce that our 30 energy-efficient homes are nearly all sold! We are currently under construction with move-in beginning November/December 2019.
One of our last available homes is a lovely 2-story, 4-bedroom townhome, with one bedroom downstairs, three bedrooms upstairs, and three baths. Key features of this "E" unit include:
~ Generous square footage: 1726 square feet, with a smart floor plan to meet all your needs
~ Large, open design living-dining area, for flexibility in use
~ Large modern kitchen with quartz countertops, gas stove, ample storage and plenty of counter space
~ Over-sized windows, allowing natural light to penetrate deep into the home
~ Spacious upstairs master bedroom with a full bath and walk-in closet
~ First-floor bedroom, ideal for a home office, or an aging family member
~ Large wrap-around porch providing roomy outdoor living space
The other homes available are the charming and popular "A" units. These are first floor, 934 square foot, two-bedroom, one-bathroom flats. They have a porch that faces in toward the commons. Designed for beauty and efficiency, the "A" unit is the perfect solution for downsizing. Need more room for family and visitors? The Common House has two guest rooms for residents to reserve.
Like all homes in Fair Oaks EcoHousing, the four-bedroom townhome and the two-bedroom flats are designed for energy-efficient living, with eco-friendly construction methods and materials, including cool roofs, tankless water heaters, double-thick walls, and much more. All are solar-ready. A garage and covered parking are also available.
The community is a pedestrian-friendly village for residents of all ages, with a centrally-located Common House, a fully equipped workshop, swimming pool and spa, organic gardens, orchard, and shared open space. The Common House includes two guest rooms for visiting family and friends as well as a large dining room and kitchen for shared meals, a crafts room, yoga room, children's area, and more. Our location is close to Fair Oaks Village and the American River Parkway, with many nearby dining and entertainment options, plus easy access to the freeway. Our cohousing community includes members at or close to retirement, multi-generational families, and families with children.
Fair Oaks, a small town in Sacramento County, has a population of around 30,000 living in a mixture of suburban and rural neighborhoods, reflecting the area's history as a citrus farming community. The Mediterranean climate features mild, wet winters and hot, dry summers, usually cooled by Delta breezes in the evenings. It is bordered by the American River on the south side, with many parks and points of access to the beautiful American River Parkway, 23 miles of bicycle and pedestrian pathways running alongside the river, from Folsom to downtown Sacramento.
The San Francisco Bay Area and Lake Tahoe are both about 2 hours away by car.
