Buying a house at Cobb Hill
There are NO houses for sale at this time.
Buying a home involves joining the Cobb Hill Co-Housing community. Members own their homes plus a share in the commonly owned land, barns, Hunt House, woodshop, and common house. The common house includes a large kitchen, dining room, den with stone fireplace, playroom, root cellar, library, large meeting room, guest rooms, laundry, recreation room, and a cheese aging room. The Hunt House is a farmhouse that has been converted into office spaces. Currently those spaces are rented to the Sustainable Food Lab.
Features common to all homes include solar hot water, south-facing passive-solar orientation, green-building design, a central-heating system, high-speed gigabit fiber internet, hiking trails and groomed x-country ski trails right out the door, plus garden space.
Arranging a Membership-Related Tour:
If you are interested in buying or renting at Cobb Hill, please fill out this form. IMPORTANT: The best time to visit is during a Work Day. Our Work Days are once per month, beginning at 9 am on a Saturday (generally the third or fourth Saturday of the month). If you can plan to stay until around 3 PM, that is ideal—we work in the morning, have a shared lunch, and then can do the tour. Work Days allow you to meet lots of people who live here, have deep conversations, see the kinds of work we do together, share a meal, and get a tour. Upcoming Work Days are:
Saturday, August 24, 2019
Saturday, September 28, 2019
Saturday, October 26th, 2019
Saturday, November 23, 2019
Saturday, December 21, 2019
If those dates don’t work for you, you can still arrange a tour, but there is a small fee ($25 per household).
Sales at Cobb Hill involve direct contact with the seller and a process with the community. For more information or to schedule a visit please email CHmembership@gmail.com or contact the owner directly.
Cobb Hill has an affordable housing fund for qualified buyers. Please email Don Seville for more information.
Arranging a Non-Membership-Related/General Interest Tour:
If you have a general interest in Cobb Hill but aren’t thinking of living here, you can still arrange a visit/tour. The best time to visit is during a workday (see the list of upcoming dates above). Please fill out this form
