WHAT IS COHOUSING?
Cohousing is a sustainable neighbourhood design that values privacy and community, independence and interdependence. It is a custom-designed neighbourhood of private homes whose owners cooperatively own and use indoor and outdoor common spaces. Cohousing members manage their communities together, and actively come together to learn, support each other, and enjoy life.
Typically, Cohousing neighbourhoods are clustered around a “common house” with shared amenities designed to provide residents privacy, while maximizing their access to a high functioning community. Each home is self-sufficient with a complete kitchen and other aspects you would expect in a home. Common shared amenities may include a large kitchen and dining room in the common house for weekly community meals, a children’s playroom, workshops, guest rooms, caregiver suites, home office support, an arts and crafts area, exercise facilities, laundry and more. Cohousing neighbourhoods range from 8 – 40 households and most commonly emphasize a multi-generational mix of singles, couples, families with children, and elders though senior (50+) Cohousing communities are rapidly increasing in number.
