While the Commons is a wonderful place to live, we do occasionally have a turnover of homes as people move through life’s changes. If you wish, you can leave your contact information here and we will keep it in the event that a home becomes available, and then the owner can contact you regarding a possible sale or rent.
Please use the Information Request form to leave your contact info.

Since its inception 25 years ago, The Commons on the Alameda Cohousing Community has been enriching the lives of adults and children through a shared intention to cultivate positive interactions, to encourage social and ecological responsibility, and to work together harmoniously as neighbors. Our children and adults thrive in an “it takes a village” environment. The Commons has been our home since the beginning, but we must leave this idyllic environment due to illness. We had planned to live here for our lifetimes.
Thus, we are offering our home for sale: It’s a custom home, owner-designed and owner-built Santa Fe style. We are the original owners who built in 1994. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, great room, kitchen and dining area, with a study, and a 300 sq. ft. studio. We have a lovely shaded patio. Many custom features, including chip-carved beams in great room, chip-carved headers above all windows; tile floors and bathrooms. The house is well insulated, with radiant heat floors, double paned Pella windows, 7 skylights, and 12 solar panels. There are storage closets off the entrance portal and the private carport.
