Borrowing from our friends in the Adirondacks, Scandinavia and elsewhere in Vermont, we, accompanied by an outstanding team of artisans, have created two exceptional building that celebrate old world craftsmanship while being a highly livable, comfortable and useful spaces to live in. The buildings embody the dignity of the traditional crafts like timber framing and highly detailed interior finishes that combine with the simple elegance and practicality of contemporary design including being very maintenance free and energy efficient.
These buildings are available as part of the Commons at Windekind that you can learn a lot more about by going to our web site at www.windekindfarms.com. You can also visit more information about the project under seeking members on this website, http://cohousing.org/node/3181
Both Cottages, called Breidablick and Campanula, were originally built as long term vacation rentals but can be retrofitted into comfortable and interesting family homes that will be integral to a surrounding cohousing and permaculture oriented community. They are located on a south facing hillside combining a view of an open meadow, terraced lawn areas and forested areas with a view of the Green Mountains beyond. The overall cost of owning a parcel and the 1/9 share of the 130 acre Commons land ranges from $130K to $170K, including development costs, depending on parcel location. The costs of Breidablick and Campanula cottages are $340K and $500K respectively.
Together we will create an environment where a diverse and multi age group of families feels a sense of belonging and interconnection with others and their environment—a place that is aesthetically uplifting, culturally rich, and environmentally and economically sustainable. We understand that the stewardship of natural resources is ultimately a synthesis of people engaging in community with nature.
