Final Homes For Sale in Fair Oaks EcoHousing – A New Community in Northern California opening June 2020.

General Information

Is sheltering-in-place making you long for community? Then Fair Oaks Ecohousing has a home for you in a brand-new community set to open in June 2020.

Imagine living in a family-friendly community where you actually know and interact with your neighbors. You'll live in an energy-efficient 2 bedroom home that would give you privacy when you want it, and right outside your door, a community of neighbors with which to share meals and activities.

The Homes

The 2 bedroom/1 bath  flats  feature ample living space (934 sq.ft.), and an open flexible design. High windows and a signature glass panel door light up the living and dining areas, add plenty of natural light and warmth, and make the rooms feel spacious. The sunny kitchen looks onto the village green and provides plenty of work and storage spaces, and includes quartz countertops, a gas stove, energy star appliances, and warm wood cabinetry.  Two bedrooms with deep closets,  a laundry area, and a bathroom complete the indoor living area. 

The front yard is set up for welcoming interactions with neighbors. A signature glass panel door leads to a large  porch with a view into the village green - a perfect place for a glass of tea and a visit with friends.

There are two homes available with the same floorpan.  One is  upstairs  ($362,060), and the other is downstairs with access to the backyard ($395,274). 

Like all homes in Fair Oaks EcoHousing, the 2 bedroom  home is designed for efficient living, with eco-friendly construction, sustainable building materials, energy saving design and high-quality fixtures and finishes.

The Community Site

A prized feature of living  in cohousing is the use of shared common facilities that will expand your living space and neighborhood.  The overall community layout here is designed to foster a safe environment for children, and to support community interactions. You'll enjoy a shared clubhouse with a large kitchen, lounge, laundry room, kid’s room, crafts room, music/activity room, and two guest rooms. In addition, in the common areas outside, there is a pool, spa, outdoor eating area, garden, orchard and workshop for your use.

But the biggest highlight of living in cohousing is joining a community of neighbors who know and care about each other.  We get to know each other through shared activities:  meals, movie nights, holiday celebrations, work days, river trips, and other activities that the members plan.  Neighbors are there to host playdates for the kids, share in pet-sitting, go to the store,  talk over a cup of coffee in the common house, help plant a garden or build a bookcase.  Through sharing the small things in life, we work on the building blocks for a lasting community.

The Location

In addition to a beautiful community site, Fair Oaks EcoHousing is lucky to have a great geographic location. We are situated in Fair Oaks, a village with a small town feel, with chickens in the streets, one-legged races and the red fire truck at 4th of July festivals, and an easy feel to life.

Just a short walk away from our community is the beautiful American River, bordered by the American River Parkway bike path: a 32 mile expanse of land and water deemed the "jewel of Sacramento" that runs from Old Sacramento to Folsom Dam. (And yes, there are community members who plan on commuting by bike!) Here you are close to hiking, biking, nature walks, fishing, rafting and kayaking.

At the same time we are part of the bustling metropolis of Sacramento and its surrounding areas in the heart of Northern California. The Sacramento area, with roots in the California Gold Rush, and built on the Sacramento River, has boomed as the California State Capitol. As an affordable alternative to the San Francisco Bay Area, it has attracted industry development in all areas, and has a strong economy.  Six colleges and universities make their home here.

Located midway between the ocean and the mountains, Sacramento is also a recreational nexus. Only two hours to the west spend a day in the San Francisco Bay Area with museums, shopping, theatre, football and baseball. Explore the beaches along the Pacific Ocean, sailing, hiking, hang gliding, and biking. Two hours to the east are the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and majestic Lake Tahoe. Skiing, snowboarding, rafting, sailing, hiking, and sitting by the fire await.

Result

So, as a total package, the 2 bedroom home is an ideal fit for any lifestyle, providing generous space, low-maintenance living, modern and green design, convenience, great location, and, most of all, community.
