How small of a greenspace can be made to feel like a refuge? Do you need 10 acres? Or would 1 do if it were densely forested and landscaped full of nooks, paths, mazes, treehouses, and such? Can you build a coho for ten households on 2 acres? Brian
Hello Brian --Takoma Village Cohousing is a highly urban 43 unit community built on 1.43 acres. In our sixth year, our landscaping is maturing and the community grounds are beautiful. For me, proximity to mass transit and the rich offerings of the city life of Washington, DC far outweigh acreage as the main criteria for a site. Tight site design, an array of unit sizes, smart use of tax incentives, locking in take- out mortgages as early as possible and a dozen other factors all contribute to making cohousing affordable.
