Why We Live Here

There is something special about knowing your neighbors. We have fun together and support each other. Working and playing together unites us with a common purpose and deepens social connections. As individuals we are continuously fostering the community in which we live.


We, the members of the Mountain View Cohousing Community (MVCC), have chosen to prioritize community in our lives. We’re an educated, environmentally conscious group from a range of backgrounds. We welcome diversity of culture, color, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and politics. We’re committed to knowing and supporting our neighbors. Sharing meals and working together to accomplish our common goals is a great way to get to know each other at a deeper level.

About Our Community

MVCC is a condominium development in Mountain View, California. Our 19 upscale, individually owned single-level homes range in size from 1,400 to 2,000 sq. ft. Resales are priced at current market value. All homes have full kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms, laundry connections, and private exterior balconies or patios. We share extensive common areas including a Common House with facilities for group dining, exercise, entertainment, and crafts. Solar panels with battery storage provide supplementary electricity for the Common House. We also have expansive gardens, a workshop, bicycle storage, and an underground garage with storage cages and charging stations for electric vehicles.

The community is designed to promote social interaction, while at the same time respecting the need for privacy and individuality. Buildings are energy efficient and meet ADA accessibility requirements. A welcoming restored historic 1885 farmhouse accommodates guests of our members.

Our 1.1-acre property is an easy walk to Castro Street, the heart of lively downtown Mountain View with restaurants, a performing arts center, and the library. CalTrain, Light Rail, buses, El Camino Real, and Highways 101, 280, and 85 are all close by. We’re also within walking distance of the Stevens Creek Trail and Sunday morning’s award-winning Farmers Market.
