GRAND OPENING OCTOBER 15

Come one, come all to Bristol Village Cohousing's Grand Opening on Sunday October 15 from 2pm to 5pm. Enjoy refreshments, music and tours of the site.

Bristol Cohousing  is a planned community of 14 households, located in the village of Bristol, Vermont. Construction is complete and twelve of the units are reserved, with just two available for new members.

Here is a link to a story in the fall 2017 edition of Seven Day's Nest section: "Happy Together" in Seven Days NEST.

See the BVCH Updates on our Blog for more information about the project, a photo gallery, and videos of the construction and deconstruction.

We offer a variety of housing options, from apartment style flats to attached townhouses to single family cottages. Unit sizes range from 1 – 3 bedrooms, from 880 – 1530 sq ft.  All residences are arranged around a common green, promoting opportunities for casual interaction.  For details on housing options, click here

Features of our development include:

  • New construction built to Efficiency Vermont’s High Performance energy      standards, designed to save money (and the planet too!)
  •  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. For a list of activities a short walk or ride away, click here.

“I love Bristol Village Cohousing. 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.””

— Penelope Markle, BVCH member
