Sunny one bedroom townhouse in an established adult cohousing community north of Durham, NC for sale by owner for $205,000

This Energy Star, Healthy Green Home is only two years old, and looks brand new. An abundance of windows makes it feel open and airy. Cortec Plus floors throughout in beautiful Red Hickory. The kitchen is large, light and bright with an abundance of cabinets and stainless steel appliances, including built in microwave and dishwasher. The roomy open floor plan, and nine foot ceilings make this 840 sq ft house feel much larger. Three expansive windows in the bedroom look out onto the forest and backyard. A glass door leads to a secluded screened porch. The house is for sale by owner for $205,000. (More photos and information will be on our website soon - )

Elderberry itself is a rural community of 18 townhomes that encircle the Common House. The community was completed in 2017 and all homes are occupied, with couples and singles, both working and retired. Each home has a small front and backyard space, just enough to grow flowers, vegetables and fruit if you choose and to sit and enjoy the outdoors from your porch.

We believe in community participation both in consensus decision-making and in sharing the work and fun. We have organic gardens, a woodshop, special interest groups and 100 acres of forest and hiking trails that we share with Potluck Farms, our sister intentional community next door.

All homeowners must first become Elderberry members. That process includes attending at least one Elderberry business meeting, work day and social event. For this reason we encourage everyone who is interested in this house or in future home sales to visit us and begin your membership process now.

To arrange a visit and learn about Elderberry and our homes, go to or contact Rosemarie Sawdon at sawdon [at] msn [dot] com or call 336-364-0386. We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our community! To learn more about the house for sale, contact Cheryl Day at cday [at] paonia [dot] com, or call 919-384-6140.
