Senior Cohousing a Reality
in Metro Northwest Boston!
News update: September 2019
Earlier this month, we signed a Purchase and Sale Agreement on a property in the small town of Littleton, Mass., west of Boston. Stay tuned while we navigate through the “due diligence” period and then hopefully on to the permitting phase.

Are you 55+ and looking for a game plan for your 3rd Act? Do you want to age in place, but need a more affordable and appropriate home? Are you concerned you might not have the kind of daily, caring social support needed to age successfully in place?
Imagine…Living in your own privately owned, right-sized, and energy-efficient home in a safe and accessible neighborhood. A place where you have as much privacy as you want and as much community—just by walking out your front door!
Imagine…Living in a neighborhood of your peers, active seniors in their 3rd Act who share your values and life experience. People who have set an intention to be good neighbors and look out for each other, and who are eager to connect, do things, and enjoy life together!
Imagine…Living in a neighborhood where the homes face onto a shared commons, and there are paths that lead to a large common house that has extensive amenities, a place where you and your neighbors often cook and eat together, meet for activities, hold celebrations and just hang out.
Imagine…Living in a neighborhood where you and your neighbors decide how things are run, a place where you have a sense of purpose and a meaningful role in the life of the community, a place where you can be independent and in control of your life as long as possible.
Who We Are
We are a group of currently 13 households in Metro Northwest Boston working to build New England's first senior cohousing neighborhood. A place by and for us!
We have engaged Katie McCamant of Cohousing Solutions, Inc., the nation’s preeminent cohousing development consultant, to guide us. We have partnered with a respected local developer who has found properties for us to consider, and who will be our project manager and take us through construction. We are implementing sociocracy as our governance system, and we are growing our membership!
