Condominium dues are $176 a month, which includes garbage, water and all the

Of course, this isn’t just a condominium. This is part of Southside Park 
Cohousing, one of the first 5 cohousing communities built in the United States. 
The owner is a part of a self-managed community, with all that entails. We have 
general meetings, work parties, chores and committees to get all the work 
done. We offer common meals about 3 times a week, and every adult is expected 
cook once a month, as part of a team of 3 or 4. There is some possibility that 
the local housing agency might help a qualified low or moderate income family 
(for housing issues, that means roughly 60 to 120% of the current median 
income in Sacramento County).

Built in 1993, we received 6 architectural awards. The community has 25 homes 
on 1.3 acres.  1 block from Southside Park, and 4 blocks from the big Sunday 
CA Farmers Market, the only one open year round. Easy walking/biking distance 
to everything. The sale of this home includes a share of the common space, 
inside and out. The Common House has laundry, kitchen, big screen TV room, kids 
play room, shady patio and sitting room. We share bike sheds, a small kids 
playground, basketball hoop, a gardening shed with tools, and a workshop. And 
course our many fruit trees, vegetable and flower gardens and wonderful 

We love this home very much, and hope that the next owners will enjoy our 
tree house as much as we have.
