Live the eco-friendly, community-minded lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of: Cohousing developments, popular in Europe and catching on more and more in the United States, offer private living alongside a “common house,” with a community room/library and spaces for exercise, kids’ activities, guest rooms, cooking and dining. Shared meals and activities, optional. Monthly work commitment required.
Our development, “Village Hill Cohousing," will have 28 homes, 10 of which have been reserved as of March 2018, with several more households in the process of joining. Child-welcoming, pet-friendly, natural setting rich with huge trees on a hill overlooking woods leading down to Smith College's playing fields and a beautiful creek and walking trail. All types of families and lifestyles invited; all ages warmly invited to apply.
Houses, to be built over the course of 2018, will be energy efficient, with the possibility of solar panels in the near future. Two to four bedrooms each, one or two stories; attached and free-standing homes, 816 sq. feet to 1,632 sq. ft.;prices range from $292,300 to $495,730, with a monthly maintenance fee. Privacy, paired with community. The development's 6-acre site is a beautiful wooded hill near a pond just ten minutes' distance (by bike/car) from culturally thriving downtown Northampton. Cross-country skiing right outside your door, biking and walking paths and gardening opportunities will all be part of our wooded development. Located four-and-a-half hours to New York City, one hour to Hartford (and Hartford Int’l Airport) by train or bus.
