Apartments & Rooms for Rent in Intentional Community

Available August 1st, 2017: your own apartment or a shared living situation! Three homes in our community are seeking housemates and we also have one 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom top-floor creek-front apartment and a sunny ground-level 1-bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment for rent.

At my house we are seeking a sixth housemate for our townhouse; the other two apartments are two bedroom, 2 bathroom creek-front units (ground and second floor respectively) looking to fill the other bedroom. The whole complex is no pets, no smoking. Registered support and service animals accepted with appropriate papers.

We are located in Boulder Creek Community (BCC) an intentional cohousing community in the heart of Boulder. BCC is a multigenerational (ages 4-75; we have 3 children living here currently and welcome more families!) community with 30 members located inside a large condominium complex called Gold Run. We have members in about 17 single-family units and 4 larger communal-living shared houses.

Gold Run is a 12 acre complex with lush grassy nooks, lots of trees, community gardens, creek-front access, a large residents only health club featuring a salt water swimming pool, two hot tubs, dry and wet saunas, racquet ball court and outdoor tennis, basketball and sand volley ball courts. We are right across the creek (access via footbridge) from a large city park, Scott Carpenter Park, with a big grassy hill, playground, ball field, skatepark and outdoor pool.

You can walk/bike/transit to everything! We are on the Boulder Creek Multiuse Path that hooks up to Boulder’s vast network of bike paths and lanes. In addition, we have electric vehicle charging stations and a city car share parked in our complex. And there is plenty of regular parking too.

Members of BCC pay monthly dues on a sliding scale of $10-$50 and give 2 hours of their time per month in service to the community (events, committees, meetings, projects, newsletter, gardening, etc). In addition, there is a monthly All Community Meeting and Potluck that members are expected to attend (at least 6 of the 12 meetings).

Please contact me for more information! The room in the townhouse is $640/month plus utilities and a $200 security deposit. The creek-front rooms for rent are in units that are about $900/bedroom, but the split of the rent and deposits depends on the existing housemate.

The top-floor two-bedroom creek-front apartment is $1850/month and the sunny 1 bedroom apartment is $1450/month. Those both have first, last and a deposit.

I hope you will check us out; this is a wonderful heartfelt community. 🙂
