VILLAGE HILL COHOUSING (VHC), has completed all four phases and all units are sold! VHC is an inclusive, multi-generational community with 28 homes located one mile from the vibrant downtown area of Northampton, Massachusetts, next to Smith College, and surrounded by wooded conservation land. Healthy living, personal growth, mutual support and ecologically sustainable practices together with personal privacy are among the major benefits Village Hill Cohousing offers. Walking and bike paths, plus nearby bus routes, make VHC the perfect location for eco-minded families and individuals who want to live lightly on the land in a forward-thinking larger community. The current group of Members worked with project developer Sunwood Builders and Fitch Architects to cooperatively design the community. Village Hill seeks new members (for our waitlist) who wish to lead a life centered in community involvement, ecological sustainability, and supportive friendships.
Village Hill Cohousing balances a greatly reduced ecological impact with sustainability and livability.
