The Property

This is a charming eight unit complex with a layout that facilitates interaction, and room to create a common house in the future.

The Concept

We have gradually converted it to Cohousing as units turned over. As of June 2019 three homes are occupied by Cohousers, and another long-time community member is moving in in August. Two more units will be available for purchase later this year, or early 2020. The remaining two households in the complex are living their lives, and are welcome stay here for as long as they like.  That will initially make us a Cohousing community of six households. The community can grow in the future, either when there is more turnover in the complex, or when Cohousers move into adjoining properties.

What is Cohousing?

Cohousing is a great way to build community and neighborhood, while maintaining independence. Every household has a complete apartment, and there are also shared spaces, including a common house with areas for common meals, workshop and guest room. You can be as private or as sociable as you wish. For more about Cohousing, see
