The Residences

The residential homes include GardenHouses and TownHouses. Their size vary between 1500 to 1940 square feet (140 to 180 square meters), in keeping with our goals of maximizing efficiency, reducing materials and energy use, and sharing extensive common facilities. We have designed the homes to feel less formal and more functional, while providing a spacious connection with the outdoors and landscaping.  Using the principles of Cohousing to enhance community interaction, the floor plans are arranged to encourage visual connection with the pedestrian walkways. Numerous features like over-sized doors, and handicapped adaptable bathrooms will make it easier to “age in place”.

 

The designs include 2, and 3 bedroom versions (see plans below). The average price range is estimated at $240,000 USD for Townhomes and $300,000 USD for Gardenhomes. And remember if you are comparing the cost per square foot with other homes, our added features will typically add up to 20% more. But the home price includes ownership of extensive Common Facilities that add to its value. Each home has Green features that are an “up front” investment which will assure minimal ongoing utility and living expenses.
 
The other typical expense will be monthly owners’ dues of approximately $200 US. These fees cover all garden and grounds maintenance, upkeep of all the common facilities, personal maid service 4 hours a week, and maintenance of the exteriors and roofs of all homes. These are not normally included in other gated communities in the Lake Chapala area.
 
Please note that the photos and drawings below are currently being refined and are not finalized. Also note that the floor areas listed include outdoor covered space (which is typically considered living space in Mexican real estate).

Model A – 2 Bedrooms, 2-1/2 Bathrooms = 2136 Total Sq. Ft. / 198 Sq. M.
Model B – 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms = 1697 Total Sq. Ft. / 158 Sq. M.      
                    Optional Upper Level – 3rd Bedroom & Bath plus Covered Patio = + 750 S.F.
Model C – 2 Bedrooms, 2-1/2 Bathrooms = 1998 Total Sq. Ft. / 186 Sq. M.
