Welcome to Bristol Village Cohousing!

Bristol Village Cohousing  is a community of 14 households, located in the village of Bristol, Vermont. Construction is complete, families have moved in, and only one unit remains available for purchase.

Features of our development include:

  • New construction built to Efficiency Vermont’s High Performance energy standards, designed to save money (and the planet too!)

  • The Peake House - a 3800 sq ft common house, available to all residents, for group meals, fun and educational activities, meetings and celebrations.

  • A central location in a small village, walking distance from most of your daily chores – shopping, restaurants, schools, the post office – even the gym and yoga studio. The bus stop to other nearby towns is a block away. The LINK commuter bus goes to Burlington daily.

  • Proximity to cultural and outdoor recreational facilities, both in the immediate area and the nearby college town of Middlebury.

“I love Bristol Village Cohousing. It’s hard to believe we are located in the center of this historic Vermont town, across from the town green, and within walking distance of everything: shops, restaurants and bakeries, performance spaces, and the library.”
