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 October 2019 four homes are occupied by Cohousers, and two more units will be available for purchase soon (see Available Homes). The remaining two 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. Our buildings have space to create a 1,000 square foot common house and a 9th unit.

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
