One Bedroom Apartments, 3120 and 3122 Brookdale Ave

We have a one-bedroom apartment available (3122, see pics below) with a rent of $1,800 per month. It’s on airbnb until the end of March, so we can take our time getting to know potential neighbors.

This apartment has all new wiring and plumbing. It has hardwood floors in the living and bedrooms, marmoleum in the kitchen and bath, and the bathroom was just remodeled in the original 1940 style, with retro tile and a new cast iron bathtub.

Another one bedroom apartment will be available this summer, as one of our members has just bought a house nearby! It will be a little cheaper ($1,700) because it hasn’t had as much renovation done. The differences are: the more expensive apartment is an end unit, has insulation in the attic, new cast iron bathtub and upgraded wiring. (The old wiring is safe, but the outlets are all 2-prong, and there aren’t very many, like most older homes.) It has the original lovely retro pink tile around the old enameled steel tub, but uninspired white tile on the bathroom floor, while the upgraded apartment next door has a new cast iron tub and marmoleum floor. (see pics of 3120, below).

Water and garbage are included in the rent, PG&E is separate. There is shared fiber wifi available for $28 per month if you want it.

3122 kitchen, original backsplash preserved, Corian countertop (since the old tile wore out), Wedgewood gas stove

Three Bedroom Apartment

Our biggest apartment, 1100 square feet with three bedrooms and one bath, will be for rent in a year or so. It’s definite that it will be available, but the project is taking a long time and so the timetable keeps getting extended. Come to our open houses to stay in the loop! Check the calendar for the drop-in open house schedule, or call to arrange to join us at a common meal.

Open Houses

We have a potluck lunch and open house on the second Sunday almost every month, from noon until 2 or 3. Check the calendar to make sure; you can call ahead, or just drop in.

This community is a rental apartment complex. The pre-existing tenants are welcome to stay and be our neighbors for as long as they like, either joining the cohousing activities or keeping to themselves.

Membership Process

We ask that people come to at least three gatherings here, before filling out a rental application. That is why, when homes become available they usually go to someone who has been coming to our open houses and other events. So if you think this might be the place for you at some time in the future, come and hang out with us! Check the calendar, and feel free to drop in on any open house day. After that, RSVP to join us at one of our common meals, or our monthly meeting.
