Valley Oaks Village

Chico, California

Completed in 1996, Valley Oaks Village is 28 homes on approximately five acres, plus 1 associated neighbor. We have six different floor plans and unit sizes, attached in varied configurations in a large oval, with a central Common House, lawn and pool. All are linked by pathways through a park-like setting of oaks and sycamores.
We are located near 3,600 acre Bidwell Park, which serves as a protected bikeway used by many residents to bicycle to and from work and school.
We have an active social calendar with events planned throughout the year. We share evening meals about twice a week and residents take an active role in planning and maintaining the community.
Other amenities include a workshop, arts and crafts room, bike sheds, gardens, orchard, gazebos, pool, and tree house. The Common House includes a kitchen, multipurpose dining room, laundry, lounge, game room, teen room, and guest quarters (with shower).
Environmental design features include highly insulated homes, solar electric panels and solar hot water for the common areas, drought-tolerant landscape with drip irrigation, recycling and compost areas, and storm water swales for ground-water recharge.
