National Cohousing Open House Day

April 24, 2021

"Living in cohousing is fulfilling, joyful, rich and sustainable. Cohousing allows us to know our neighbors, enjoy more connected relationships, and collaborate with others who share our values."  - Cohousing.org (sponsor, National Cohousing Open House Day)

The Triangle -- called by the IndyWeek “Ground Zero in the Cohousing Movement" -- boasts 7 established cohousing communities, with 3 in development. Open House Day is a great time to visit local cohousing communities either virtually or in-person, ask questions of the residents, and see which community would be a good fit for you!

Arcadia

Cohousing

Carrboro, NC

Arcadia is an intergenerational suburban cohousing community in Carrboro, established in 1994. Thirty-three families share sixteen acres, eleven of which are woods with a stream running through them. Families own their homes and lots, share ownership of the common house and grounds, and enjoy additional amenities such as a fenced garden, bike sheds, guest rooms and social events.  We love to garden and to share the beauty of our neighborhood.  Our Common House is located at 134 Circadian Way, Chapel Hill.

Our 112 acres of land includes a substantial community farm, extensive woodlands, 4 miles of trails, a pond, creek, and wetlands. Our location, in rural Mebane, Orange County, just minutes from I-40,  provides easy access to Chapel Hill, Durham and Greensboro.
