I think the author is confused between Co-housing and Senior Housing. Based on the Co-housing group's website, this seems to be a Co-housing community that happens to only have seniors committed to living there so far, and not a "senior condo project" at all.
Fantastic news. Kudos to the Mountain View Co-Housing community for working to preserve this unique home(...and thanks to the Bakotich family for keeping it standing for a good part of its 130 years!). There are only a handful of structures in the area from the 19th century, so it's very exciting to learn this piece Mountain View architectural heritage will be restored and moved to a spot on Calderon Avenue where we all can enjoy the glimpse of history it provides and appreciate the new owner's investment in its future. I hope the project moves smoothly through the approval process!
Chiming in as living proof that this is not an "all senior" community; my husband and I plan to move into this wonderful project and we are 53 and 56. Living in community is a great way to live at any age.
This is a wonderful project that has been extremely well thought out. It will be a perfect fit in it's surroundings and great addition to old Mountain View. I encourage all the residents in the area to support the Burwen's and all the other investors in the co-housing community.
Wow let the dense living in Mtn. View begin! A stone's throw away from this is a monstrous housing development on the corner of Calderon and Villa. Then a monstrous new housing development at the old Minton's site. I've walked by this wonderful old house and orchard like property and now it's going to be milked for every square foot for more development?
Kudos to the developers for taking the time and energy to re-purpose the historic Bakotich house for the new development. Not only does it retain the sense and style of Mountain View past, its refreshing to hear a developer use words like "a sense of entrance". When developers build with design and architecture in mind, to make spaces living spaces, and not just boxes, everyone benefits.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
