A brand new adult community in southern Novato



The dynamic community of Hamilton Field in Novato has a brand new neighborhood taking shape. "Hamilton Cottages" is a 16-home Ryder Homes development of detached, single-family houses. It is an active adult community for people who are at least 62 years old (one owner must meet this requirement).

Hamilton Cottages is a first-of-its-kind development in the San Francisco Bay Area, and perhaps California. The builder's vision is to create a small-scale and social neighborhood that actually improves homeowners' health and quality of life. 


The homes are clustered around a central, shared courtyard complete with fire pits, gazebos and an outdoor kitchen with a built-in BBQ. Each home features an inviting porch that provides easy access to the courtyard, creating a shared sense of community among neighbors.


Hamilton Cottages is modeled after similar "pocket developments" in other parts of the country, which have been very successful. There's even a book that's been written about this called Pocket Neighborhoods by architect Ross Chapin.


The Homes

The homes are under construction but they are going up quickly now! Sales start soon and prices are expected to start in the low- to mid- $900,000s. These photos are from late fall 2019. Hamilton Cottages features four different floor plans. All are 2-story with the main living spaces, kitchen and master suites on the first level. Homes range in size from 1,601 to 2,542 square feet with 3 to 4 bedrooms and either an attached or detached 2-car garage.

This community could be great for retired people who are downsizing, folks seeking multi-generational living arrangements or those who have caregivers.
