Quimper Village is the first senior co-housing community in Port Townsend, WA.
I receive their e-newsletter each month, and when I got it today, Sunday March 31st, I thought I should definitely share this rare opportunity with all of you.
CONDO FOR SALE
Available June 1: a 2-bedroom, 2-bath 1,196 square foot home. This is our medium sized "B unit". Located on the northeast corner of the property, with unobstructed views of pasture and orchard.
The unit is light-filled and very well built--less than two years old. The interior includes engineered wood floors and plenty of storage space.
Asking price is $450,000 and includes a garage and 1/28 ownership of our common house, workshop, art studio and 6-acre grounds.
"You're not just buying a beautiful house, you're joining a supportive and caring community."
TO LEARN MORE...
If you are interested in joining our community, you are invited to attend a social session to hear more about living in co-housing and have a chance to see the home. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a space. You will receive a short questionnaire about why you are interested in co-housing. **The session will be held here on Saturday, April 13 at 11am.**
While the home will be available in early June, learning about living in community is an important part of the process. You will also learn about other opportunities to join us for a meal or other activity so you can meet as many members of the community as possible before making an offer.
“Oh, I’m not ready for that yet." This is the frequently heard response when talking with other 55+ people about living in co-housing. This infers that senior co-housing is a replacement for a care home of some type. Nothing could be further from the truth! We who live in Quimper Village are engaged, interested and participating in a large variety of activities: biking, building, singing, reading, hiking, boating, creating, living! Why wait to join a vibrant and welcoming community? Much is to be gained by living with others at any age. Packing and moving is never easy and becomes even harder as we age. The time is NOW to consider making new friends, enjoying new activities, learning new skills and enjoying an atmosphere of support and camaraderie. If you are newly retired or close to retirement, NOW it the time to consider joining a cohousing community. Why wait?
