The Refugio Neighborhood

The Refugio Neighborhood is the second phase of residential construction. It is located to the southeast of the first phase, directly across Sycamore Park. This small neighborhood is in the form of a village, entirely surrounded by natural open spaces including creeks and wetland preservation areas. The neighborhood is characterized by narrow, tree-lined streets with more rural detailing than those of the Central Neighborhood, including one that runs around the entire neighborhood perimeter, providing walking, biking and jogging pathways along the open space edge.

The houses of the Refugio Neighborhood are smaller and more affordable than those of the Central Neighborhood, designed in the Coastal Victorian Style, a combination of three historic Bay Area styles. All the homes will have front porches or stoops, and most of the houses will open onto side yard patios, some with adjacent side porches. Fourteen of the 78 houses are attached town house units, 12 of which will be offered as affordable units for moderate income buyers. All homes are served by a rear lane, providing garage access at the back of the lot.

Highlights:
• 10 acres, single-family zoning
• 78 single-family lots
  • 64 cottages: 1,400-1,830 sf
  • 14 townhouses: 1,500-1,750 sf (12 affordable units)
