Fair Oaks EcoHousing 

A pedestrian-friendly village for people of all ages, where neighbors know and care about each other. Young folks have mentors, older folks have support.


Excellent location in lovely Fair Oaks, California.  Part of the bustling Sacramento Metropolitan area in Northern California.    Home of the State Capitol.  Yet travel just two hours west to reach the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco, and 2 hours east to visit the Sierra Nevada mountain range and Lake Tahoe. 


Close to the American River Parkway, Fair Oaks Village, Bannister Park, Sacramento Waldorf School, and Rudolf Steiner College.


An environmentally-friendly neighborhood with energy-efficient homes, generous open space, fruit trees, organic gardens, and a centrally-located clubhouse.


30 townhomes and flats. Home sizes range from two to four bedrooms. Priced from the mid 300's to the high 600's.

We are proud to be endorsed by the Environmental Council of Sacramento (ECOS) and to have one of our founders honored by ECOS as a 2016 Environmentalist of the Year for her work to establish Fair Oaks EcoHousing.


The community has now finished construction, and families are moved in.   Go to this page to see the only home available for rent.  The rest of the community is sold out.

Go to this page to see availability for purchase as homes open up for resale.   There is also an Interest List you may join to be notified of future resales.


An Introduction to EcoHousing

Fair Oaks EcoHousing offers a balance of privacy and community. EcoHousing, a type of cohousing community with a strong green focus, combines private homes with extensive community facilities to create neighborhoods that address the needs of singles, working parents and seniors. By combining private homes with a shared clubhouse and garden, residents experience the feeling of a small village where neighbors know and care about each other.

Plans and More

Imagine living in a family-friendly community where you actually know and interact with your neighbors. You'd live in an energy-efficient flat or town home that would give you privacy when you want it,  and right outside your door, a community of neighbors with which to share meals and activities. The community layout is designed to foster a safe environment for children, and to support community interactions. There is a shared clubhouse, pool, garden/orchard and workshop, and the community is  close to hiking, biking, nature walks, fishing, and kayaking.  Press the button below to see the plans for our community.

Upcoming Events

Fair Oaks EcoHousing is a beautiful neighborhood of 30 homes on 3.7 acres in Fair Oaks, CA, 18 miles east of downtown Sacramento. Periodic site tours and social events are planned.
