About our cohousing community
- Find details about Mosaic at www.mosaic-commons.org
- Buying a house in cohousing is like buying a house with an extra room, but the room is not attached to your house; it's in the common house which has a kids room, a living room with TV, laundry, workout room, bike storage.
- We also have a large kitchen and great room for shared meals a few times a week.
- 25+ wooded acres in conservation among beautiful hills with orchards and horse farms nearby, yet with easy access to shopping and I-495 and I-290 highways.
Sawyer Hill EcoVillage is comprised of two cohousing neighborhoods, Mosaic Commons and Camelot Cohousing. Cohousing is a modern style of residential neighborhood in which some resources are shared in common by the residents. Each family owns their home, as well as a share of the common facilities, which include things like playing fields and gardens. Our community values green space, a safe, healthy environment for our children and conservation of our natural resources.
The cohousing development model began in Denmark during the late 1960s, and has since become a mainstream housing option in that country. This innovative neighborhood design crossed the Atlantic in the late 1980s, and over 50 successful communities have built all over the United States since that time, with many others that have purchased land and are in the development process.
There are ten completed cohousing communities in Massachusetts and at least two others in the development or construction phase. Read more about Cohousing https://www.cohousing.org/
