Hearthstone is a special co-housing community built on the former grounds of Elitch’s park in northwest Denver. All units, including this one at 4730 W. 37th Ave. #10, face an interior courtyard and a select few, including this unit, have a detached 1-car garage. It was just listed for $520,000. Seller will favor a buyer who demonstrates a commitment to the co-housing concept and is willing to meet with one or more co-housers to discuss life there. Visit the community’s website (www.HearthstoneCohousing.com) before requesting a showing to make sure it’s right for you and you’re right for it. When touring this home, don’t overlook the common house, which has a fitness room, woodworking shop, guest bedroom and bathroom, TV room, fireplace room and large common room with kitchen for the monthly community meetings and twice-weekly community meals. Take a narrated video tour at www.HearthstoneCohousing.info. I’ll hold it open this Sat., July 3rd, 11-1.
Cohousing communities have been built in Golden and Boulder, and one will be built in the Geos net-zero energy neighborhood on 69th Avenue, west of Indiana Street, incorporating the same net zero energy design elements described in today’s other post about Geos. Ten members are already signed up, including Norbert Klebl, the developer of Geos. When there are 12, design and construction work will begin.
At www.RalstonCreekCohousing.org you can watch some useful videos and learn about their monthly video chats and events. The community will consist of 20 or so units in a U-shaped condo-style building with main-floor common spaces and a courtyard facing Ralston Creek.
If you like the idea of cohousing, check out this one, which has the additional feature of being net zero energy.
