A new concept in home ownership for active adults is about to arrive in Wake County. It’s called cohousing and it refers to a community of individually owned homes clustered around shared community house and grounds. Cohousing communities are planned, owned and managed by their owners and are designed to foster strong ties among residents. The website cohousing. org, says “households have independent incomes and private lives, but neighbors collaboratively plan and manage community activities and shared spaces. The legal structure is typically a homeowners association, condo association or housing cooperative. Community activities feature regularly scheduled shared meals, meetings and workdays. … Cohousing makes it easy to form clubs, organize child and elder care and carpool.”

Raleigh Cohousing is a forming a community of forward thinking independent adults who want an alternative housing solution to the traditional options. We are seeking like-minded individuals and couples who have an interest in making this happen.
