Hello all --

Award winning Eastern Village Cohousing, located right on the dividing line 
between Maryland and the District of Columbia has a home for sale!  A rare and 
wonderful opportunity to move right into cohousing!  

Below are the specifics -- please do NOT email me for more information.  Please 
email Chuck Washington, the seller, at:

or call:  301-650-4143


Here are the Particulars of the community:

Eastern Village Condominium – Country Living in the City

Potluck Dinners:  Every Monday we celebrate with a potluck dinner in the common 
house dining room.

Birthday Celebrations: On the first Monday of each month, the potluck dinners 
celebrate those residents whose birthdays occur during that month.

SAGE Brunches:  On the first Friday of each month, we host a SAGE brunch.  
Although this brunch was initially designed primarily for retirees, all are 
welcome to attend/participate, and in fact we encourage everyone to 
participate.  The only general rule is that we do not talk shop.  

Vegan Meal Nights:  Every other Wednesday night, residents bring their favorite 
vegetarian dish to share with all.

Movie Nights:  We have three versions, (1) group viewing of movies at the AFI 
Theatre in downtown Silver Spring, group viewing of movies in another 
resident’s home, and group viewing of movies on the roof.   

Theater Shows:  We attend plays and shows at venues such as the Kennedy Center, 
Montgomery College, etc., in groups, and we often get discounted tickets.

Poetry Readings:  We have our own on-site poet.

Sunset Celebrations:  Enjoy impromptu sunset celebrations on the roof with 
beverages, light refreshments.

Fireworks Celebrations:  Without leaving the complex, enjoy excellent rooftop 
views of 4th of July and New Year celebrations.  Views include firework 
displays on the Capitol Mall, in Rockville, in Germantown, in College Park, and 
in Greenbelt.  

Trusted Baby Sitters:  Baby sitters are easy to find within the community and 
the best part is that you do not have to pick them up or drive them home, they 
are already here.

Safe Play Areas for Children:  Not only do we have several areas for children 
to play safely, members of the community keep close tabs on the children to 
ensure their safety and security.  Strangers are immediately identifiable since 
we are such a close-knit community.

Built-in Pet Sitters:  This pet friendly community has many residents who will 
take care of your pets inside your home while you are away, at no charge.

Environmentally Friendly:  EVC is a LEED (Leadership in Energy and 
Environmental Design) award winner.  In addition to the building having a 
geothermal heating/cooling system, each unit (condominium) has its own 
individual geothermal unit.  These units are energy efficient and greatly 
reduce utility bills.

EVC Guest Rooms:  We have three guest rooms, located on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th 
floors, respectively.  These large, comfortable, hotel-style rooms each have 
their own separate full baths and are available for use by residents and their 
guests (ideal for when the in-laws or that old college friend visit).

EVC Websites:  We have two websites, one where we post pertinent documents and 
residents can comment on issues of concern.  That website is available to all 
members of the community and requires a user name and password:   The other is 
a website that is accessible without a username or password and provides 
general information concerning the community:  HYPERLINK
