Cohousing Classifieds

Rancho La Salud Village - Mexico’s first cohousing community - is located in the beautiful Lake Chapala area, where the climate is said to be one of the best in the world. It is conveniently located just 45 minutes from Guadalajara International Airport and 10 minutes from Ajijic, Jalisco.

This one-story “Villa” model is near completion and ready to meet its new owners. (Floor plan is from mirror image; interior photos are from mirror-image occupied model). A single-family residence, this model and all homes in Rancho La Salud Village are inspired by the artisanal style of this unique Mexican locale. It combines vaulted brick (bóveda) ceilings, Talavera tiles, stone and brick walls with sustainable technologies such as solar power, solar water heater, reverse osmosis drinking water system, and a biodigestor that recycles house waste water into gray water for irrigation.

The home has five skylights throughout, an ample-sized all-electric kitchen with granite countertops and large breakfast bar. An open-concept living/dining room area with large sliding glass doors opens to the south-facing terrace. There are two bedrooms with sliding glass doors opening to small terraces. Each has a full bath.

A beautiful wrought-iron spiral staircase at the rear of the house leads you to an open mirador/terrace with a view of Lake Chapala and majestic mountains behind.

Lot size is 300 square meters (3,229.17 square feet) with construction of 120 square meters (1291.67 square feet).

The 3.5-acre community of Rancho La Salud Village currently has eight homes and townhomes occupied by 14 residents, all who own their building and the land their home sits on, plus a portion of community land. We have space for approximately 20 additional single-family residences and townhomes. A Townhome and Garden model are also for sale. Also buyers may choose their lot and model, then build for pre-sale using our chosen contractor.

Rancho La Salud Village is a bilingual community (some English-only, some Spanish/English). We’re looking forward to welcoming new members to experience “cohousing a la Mexicana” on the shores of Lake Chapala.
