"Through every national or international crisis I ask myself, "In times like this, where do I want to be?" And every time I count my blessings to live in a collaborative cohousing community that knows how to come together in times of crisis."
Community, Privacy, and Nature at Your Door
We are LGBTs, friends, and allies creating a caring community on 15 beautiful acres in Durham, NC. We have the privacy of our own right-sized, sustainable homes and the company of a close-knit and mutually supportive group of neighbors.
Cohousing is collaborative. It is self-designed, self-developed, and self-managed. Our community reflects our values and priorities.
Our neighborhood is made up of 28 single-story fully equipped cottages, with private backyards and inviting front porches. The homes cluster around the common house, leaving almost ten acres for natural open spaces, gardens, and outdoor activities.
Universal design with wide doorways, roll-in showers, and gentle grades throughout ensures our entire community is accessible to everyone.
The central green space, the common house, the gardens, the dog park, the art studio, and the workshop offer plentiful opportunities for connection, creativity, exercise, and fun.
Our common house has a large gourmet kitchen, a multi-purpose dining room, office, laundry, exercise room, guest suite, sitting/game room, and sewing/craft room.
Policies are agreed on by members of the community. We are a non-smoking community. We welcome pets.
Move-in May 2020!
Community is the secret ingredient in sustainability.
