This home is truly a joy. Built in 2003 as part of the Manzanita Village Cohousing Community, this 2,000 square foot craftsman style has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large family room, as well as the kitchen/living room/dining room. Situated on the edge of the community’s green space, it offers privacy as well as community. It has in-floor radiant heating and a gas fireplace to keep it cozy on those winter nights when it snows. A whole-house fan keeps it cool for most of the summer and it is set up for an evaporative cooler. The gray-water system and water-harvesting tanks help maintain the mature landscaping. The village greenhouses are just down the pedestrian street, a few steps past the playground and the Village Green, and the gardens and orchards provide fresh organic fruit and vegetables for much of the year.
