The Property

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

The Concept

Kingfisher is a rental Cohousing community. We have gradually converted it to Cohousing as units turned over. As of May 2021, five homes are occupied by Cohousers, and the remaining three households in the complex are living their lives, and are welcome stay here for as long as they like.  The community can grow in the future, either when there is more turnover in the complex, or when Cohousers move into adjoining properties. Two units will be available soon (see Available Homes).  Our two buildings also have space to create a 1,000 square foot common house in the future, with a kitchen and dining room for community meals. For now we have a shared workshop and laundry, and for meals we eat in our courtyard or in someone’s apartment.

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
