MINDFUL & INSPIRED
Athashri is a Sanskrit word that means “auspicious new beginnings” and aptly names this completely new, 55+ lifestyle community nestled on over 5 acres of sunny and gently sloping land.
A Spanish design influence and very thoughtful planning have created a beautiful environment to live an inspired life. From mindful moments to delicious meals, there’s never been a more idyllic condominium community.
Athashri offers 1, 2 and 3-bedroom condominiums ranging from 775+ square feet to 1,600+ square feet. It’s brought to you by the Paranjape Group, a well-respected developer of 55+ housing communities. With care, Paranjape creates environments to encourage experiences—making space and time for things you might have missed while fulfilling your life’s responsibilities.
We invite you to explore.

DWELL IN WELLNESS
WHERE you live, affects HOW you live.
Athashri as a community was consciously designed to make it easy to create healthy habits. The community provides the right settings and amenities for fitness and is designed for social connection. Yoga classes, tai chi and swimming are all a lot more fun with your friends! Informally and organically, Athashri residents create new patterns and habits that encourage healthy minds, bodies and spirits.
The fitness center features a variety of equipment for both cardio and weight training. The indoor multipurpose room and outdoor fitness area are used as studios for group classes and meditation.
Heated Outdoor Pool
& Indoor Spa
Take a swim in the morning, sunbathe in the warm afternoon light and enjoy a soothing soak at the indoor spa in the early evening. From poolside lunches and drinks with friends to quiet moments, you’ll find cool and calm always within reach.
Enjoy a relaxing or therapeutic massage in Athashri’s private massage studio and look and feel your best with the on-site salon (By appointment and as an optional service)

Athashri homes feature spacious kitchens complete with all of the appliances and design features you’ll need. You can cook at home, or join your friends in our spacious dining room for a delicious meal.

And the northern California location means easy access to fresh and locally raised foods.
The courtyard right off the dining room is perfect for sunny days and balmy evening suppers. Choose the dining plan that best meets your lifestyle—from one meal a day to every meal throughout the day.
THE ART OF LIVING WELL
Frank Lloyd Wright completed the design of the Guggenheim Museum in New York at age 92, and Giuseppe Verdi wrote Falstaff, perhaps his most acclaimed opera, at the age of 85. Athashri is a great place to put your lifetime of learning and experience to the test. Your new community is fertile ground for creative pursuits. It was designed to be in sync with changing lifestyle dynamics—60 is the new 40!
