This senior cohousing neighborhood is for adults 55+. We have a beautiful 7+ acre- treed-lot in the center of Stillwater in close proximity to retail and health facilities. Oklahoma State University and all of the academic, sport, and cultural activities of a major university are within 1 mile of the property. Walking/biking trails and Boomer Lake are within 1/4 mile. Our homeowners are a mix of retired and not-retired, singles and couples. Visit our website to meet the newest senior cohousing community and the first in Oklahoma!
