What is Cohousing?
A neighborhood that integrates green design with a social, supportive community life. Neighbors know one another. They have worked with an architect to design their dream environment and to tread lightly on the earth.
Cohousing communities consist of private, fully-equipped dwellings and extensive common amenities, which are the heart of the community. Residents use their “common house” to host community dinners, kids playing on raining afternoons, scrabble games in front of the fireplace, as well as parties, crafts groups, guests suites, yoga classes and book club meetings.
Residents are involved early in the design and development phases so that the community reflects their priorities. Residents live in a close-knit neighborhood that seeks a healthy blend of privacy and community.
