Village Hearth Cohousing is the first 55+ cohousing community in the U.S. created by and for LGBT seniors and their allies. Located within the city limits just 15 minutes from vibrant downtown Durham, NC, you’ll find coffee shops and restaurants, music, art, theatre, a bustling Farmers Market and a world-class performing arts center. The community began moving in in late May 2020, during the first days of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Village Hearth has 28 single-story homes with three floor plans and over 3000 square feet of shared space in the Common House and the workshop. Conceived with community and connecting in mind, multiple outdoor gathering areas are found throughout. The homes are clustered on about six of our 15 acres, and this year we are beginning to plan our larger outdoor spaces. The Common House boasts a gourmet kitchen and dining room to accommodate shared meals, meetings and events. Other shared spaces include a sitting room with large screen TV and game table, fitness and craft rooms, laundry, and a terrace equipped with a grilling corner with sink, umbrellaed tables, propane heaters and amazing sunsets. At Village Hearth, you’re buying more than just a condo; you’re buying into a caring community.
While COVID-19 restricted our use of community indoor spaces, we found ways to socialize with each other and our families while practicing safety precautions. With most of us now fully vaccinated, our Community Meals Team is finally able to begin planning sit-down community dinners in the dining room. For now, we still meet and conduct business by Zoom, but we’re looking forward to meeting together soon.
This home is owned by a current resident, but is not yet lived in due to a change in plans by the owner. The condo for sale is a light-filled, west-northwest facing, single-story one-bedroom one-bath home with a covered porch. Upgrades to the home include engineered wood floors, granite countertops, kitchen appliances, ceiling fans, window treatments and easy landscaping. The home includes two parking spaces with onsite access to an electric car charging station.
