Euclid von Imaginal Manor is an active exploration of a question: How can we increase our positive impact with one another, with our community and with the world?

As people who build and nurture strong, resilient relationships, from this foundation we lean into inquiries such as: how do we bring together a community of all types of people that has positive global impact?  Because now, more than ever, community plays a vital role in creating a world that works for all.

We have a room opening up August 1st.

Why coliving?

We find that with more people comes more creative inspiration, learning and play – and accountability to who you want to be.
The next buddha will not be an individual. The next buddha will be a community.

About the House

Euclid Manor is the historic name of our home- a beautiful 6,000 sq ft manor with fully furnished common spaces. The house is currently home to 11 people, and we have new rooms opening up that were formerly guest rooms. Couples are welcome, pets are not.

  • Rents: $1550 (ground floor with full private bath)
  • Location: Two blocks from Grand Ave, Lake Merritt, the Grand Lake Theater, and a cornucopia of restaurants, cafes, parks, and more.
  • Transportation: Very close to bus including Transbay to SF, casual carpool to SF, and 1.3mi from 19th Street BART. Great for cyclists.
  • Parking: Street parking only, and it’s hard to park in our neighborhood.
