Heartwood Ranch Cohousing, 350 acres in southwest Colorado (Durango / Bayfield area). Completed in 2000, and happily rolling into our 17th year!
Located twenty minutes east of Durango (and 3 miles NW of Bayfield), Heartwood Cohousing has 24 private homes on private lots, a large and beautiful Common House with open air terrace and "Village Green", a separate workshop and greenhouse, all clustered snugly on 7 acres, surrounded by nearly 350 acres of community-owned woodlands and open space, including 50 acres of irrigated pastures and community gardens.
We share our land with various numbers of chickens, turkeys, horses, cattle, pigs, and llamas, as well as the occasional black bear, bobcat, mountain lion, rattlesnake, elk, deer, waterfowl, eagles, hawks and many song and hummingbirds.
Residing at 7100 ft elevation, where the high red-rock deserts of the Four Corners region merge into the majestic, 13-14,000 ft San Juan Mountains – we thrive in one of Colorado's most stunning regions. We also typically enjoy 300 or more days of sun annually, so keep your sun-hat on!!
While many of our residents work professionally, off-site, we also host multiple home-based businesses and associated resources that support a culture of personal and professional creativity and innovation, from back-to-the-land family farmers – to thriving 21st century web-based business successes.
Our resident population numbers have generally hovered around 70 individuals, with ages ranging from newborns and toddlers to well north of 70. On-site home-schooling numbers have ebbed and flowed over the years; we also benefit from excellent local schools, with a variety of options to choose from. And nearby Durango is host to Mercy Regional Medical Center, a state-of-the-art, acute care hospital and medical campus.
Presently, we have a limited number of ownership and rental opportunities; please visit our website to see what's available.
Whether your goals are the deep connection of community, dirt-under-the-fingernails home-grown simplicity, an active outdoor lifestyle that includes world-class hiking, road and mountain biking, skiing, kayaking and rafting, weekend trips to the desert or the high mountain wilderness, or an evening of excellent food and entertainment in nearby Durango...
Heartwood is the place to live, love, put down roots, raise your family, grow together, prosper and change the world, one neighborhood at a time. www.heartwoodcohousing.com and www.facebook.com/HeartwoodCohousing
