Cohousing Community

~ Creating an old-fashioned neighborhood in a new way ~  


OUR PEOPLE

We are a group of families, couples, and singles who have created a 36-home  cohousing neighborhood in Paso Robles on the Central Coast of California.  In the fall of 1999 we discovered the land we now call home. Construction started in 2003;  the majority of us moved in during 2004. 


Our residents have ranged in age from 2 to 88.  We are diverse - artists, educators, business people, coaches,  engineers, health care professionals, finance experts, etc.  

 

We welcome you to our website and Facebook pages.  If you have questions, want to know if units are for sale/rent, would like to visit our community or wish to know more about our area, click here.


 

OUR LAND

Our 14-acre site is located in the southeast of Paso Robles, but it feels like the country. 


We have 10-acres of oak woodlands with about 1,200 native blue oaks, sweeping sunset views over distant rolling hills and a sometimes flowing creek -- complete with frogs and cattails.*


You can wander the property and not realize you are in town - yet shopping, public transportation, schools and parks are within a short walk.  Across the street and down the way over 60 acres of public natural open space.


*The creek flows mainly in winter/spring, depending on rainfall levels.



OUR CITY - PASO ROBLES

In Spanish, our city name -- El Paso de Robles -- means "Pass of the Oaks", a tribute to the majestic Valley Oaks and rolling hills that captivated our pioneers. 


Today these oaks are joined by vineyards, olive orchards,  farms and ranches that inspire our local cuisine and culture. 


Paso Robles (population 31,000) is 25 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean in the central California coast It's located in northern San Luis Obispo County on Highway 101 -- halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. The warm summers and moderate winters are influenced by the ocean. 


Paso Robles has a picturesque downtown square, hot springs, art studios, fine restaurants, horse ranches, wineries, bike trails and much more.
