Imagine having an impromptu glass of wine with neighbors to decompress after a long day at work... A neighbor dropping off a pot of her soup at your doorstep when she's heard from another neighbor that you're down with a cold... Stopping by the common house to mingle with neighbors over a delicious homemade meal, all prepared and ready when you arrive...
Washington House Cohousing is a collaborative endeavor to create a unique community of well-designed homes, just across the River from downtown Sacramento. Cohousing provides a perfect balance of privacy (in your own home) and community (at your doorstep). Each resident will own their own energy efficient homes, with access to a wealth of shared common amenities on site.
Our site at 4th & G Streets is in the center of West Sacramento's Washington Neighborhood, one of the oldest neighborhoods in the Sacramento region - platted over 168 years ago. We aim to acknowledge the neighborhood and underscore our commitment to its revitalization, and encourage you to explore the site with us at an upcoming site tour. (See events page for dates).
We're at a crucial point on the cusp of the design process, and encourage you tojoin usin determining the features of the project, prioritizing what elements and amenities to include. Additionally, early members will have first pick of the housing units.
Why Live in Cohousing? Cohousing gives residents a unique blend of community and privacy. Households have independent incomes and private lives, but neighbors collaboratively plan and manage community activities and shared spaces. Self-management empowers residents, builds community, and saves money. Cohousing provides support to families raising kids (built-in childcare and affordable community meals) and gifts older adults a supportive community setting (allowing for active aging).Click here to learn more about cohousing.
