Building the First 55+ Cohousing Community in New England
Cottages have walls, roofs, windows, and doors. The walls are going up on the multi-family building!
We plan to move in to Hager Homestead in late 2023.
We are happy to announce that we are offering two additional market-rate, one-bedroom homes. One is located in the 1794 Federal House and will feature all-new interior construction with windows on two and three sides. The second spacious one-bedroom home is located in the multi-family building. An elevator foyer will connect the Federal House with the multi-family building for ease of access.
All 26 private homes will be ADA-compliant from the start and are either one- or two-bedroom homes with a single floor design.
The Common House will be located in the renovated 1990s house on site. This will be the heart of the community, with a large kitchen to prepare group meals, a dining area, and multi-purpose rooms for gatherings. Additional shared common space will be available in our adjacent post and beam barn. We plan to build a community garden near these two buildings.
The grounds will have walking paths between homes, nooks for sitting and visiting with friends, and new shade trees and plantings. Many units will have either small porches, terraces, or balconies. Carports and outdoor parking spaces are located on the periphery so that we can all see our neighbors as we walk to our cars!
