Live in an eco-home in the New Brighton Cohousing community--a beautiful, comfortable house finished with natural materials, close to the beach, and surrounded by neighbors you know!

New Brighton Cohousing is an active co-housing community with 22 members from ages 2 to 81. We are located in Aptos California, a suburb of Santa Cruz. There are 11 townhomes and a common house around a central yard. The 1600 square foot common house has a shared kitchen, dining room, guest rooms, and laundry. There is a play room and outdoor play ground for the children and a community garden and fruit trees. We have two community meals per week and informal social events. The property is owned jointly under a tenants in common agreement.

We are just across the street from AJ's Market and Natural Foods, half a block to Cabrillo Fitness Club and pool, on a bus line to downtown Santa Cruz, and a 15 minute walk to Cabrillo College or New Brighton State Beach and the ocean. Cabrillo has plays, concerts, lectures, and the best farmers market in the Santa Cruz area--fresh organic fruit and produce all year.

The house is newly remodeled:

Sustainable EcoFusion solid strandwoven bamboo flooring and custom designed and built bamboo cabinets and vanities with push to open drawers and cabinets.

Energy efficient dual pane Marvin Integrity windows, two skylights, and all LED lighting with dimmers, including under cabinet lighting (never change a light bulb again!). Electric heat in five heat regions with programmable thermostats; radiant floor heat and heated towel racks in the bathrooms.

Shaker style solid fir doors, quartz counter tops, new Bosch appliances with electric cook top and built in oven, kitchen water filter, porcelain tile on kitchen floor and bathrooms, and large heated soaking tub. All non-toxic paints and finishes. Whole house wired for Ethernet and cable.

Price: $549,999.
