Community image

New Brighton Cohousing is an owner-occupied townhouse community, located at 6010-6034 Soquel Drive in Aptos, California, less than one mile from the beach. It was was established in the fall of 2007 when we purchased a townhouse complex.
Currently we are a community of 18 adult members, 5 children, 3 cats and 2 dogs. About half the community works or has worked in social services and the other half in education, the sciences, healthcare, and planning. Our ages range from 2 months to 81. We enjoy each other’s company and share a common interest in living responsibly.
The property consists of 11 individually owned 2-story townhomes in 3 buildings, and one 1600-square-foot common house, all situated around a central courtyard. Our common house has a kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining areas, a children’s room, and two guest rooms.
Community amenities include two group meals per week, two guest rooms, dining and meeting spaces, indoor and outdoor children’s play areas, and a small community garden and orchard.
Our community is designed, owned, and managed by the residents. Membership requires participation in meal preparation once a month, active participation on a committee and an affinity group as well as participation in quarterly community-wide work parties. As much as possible, we do the maintenance and upkeep of the property ourselves.
