About Cottage Courts
Inspired by the Bungalow Courts built along the West Coast in the early 1900s, these quaint homes are grouped around common courtyards.
Although cars typically dominate a great deal of our lives, it becomes important that they do not overwhelm the integrity of each cottage. Therefore, parking is intentionally placed away from the homes. Since residents walk from their cars along paths through the common areas and adjacent to their neighbor's front porches, there's always an opportunity to stop and visit or simply say "hello."
The Cottages at Stucki Farms
A unique series of Cottage Court Neighborhoods located on 19 acres with views of the surrounding mountains. The quaint bungalows and casitas consist of one to three bedroom single and two-story homes ranging from 530 to 1280 sq. ft.
A combination of open parking and garages allow the residents to interact with their neighbors as they travel from their cars along the common courtyards and walkways. The result is a delightful pedestrian-friendly neighborhood where people are emphasized over automobiles.
