All of our 30 units are sold; a few are being rented until the owners are able to move in themselves. But inevitably, Shepherd Village homes will become available again. We are establishing a list we are calling Shepherd Village Friends, folks who are interested in receiving news of Shepherd Village. Then if someone wants to seriously consider living here, they can join our List of Prospective Buyers/Renters. These Friends will become familiar with the concepts of cohousing and will participate in some events so that we can get to know each other. Please contact us if you would like to join one or both of these lists.
When we have more details or news, we will let you know.
If your interest is less in cohousing itself than in building a new home near downtown Shepherdstown, you may be interested in the lots we are selling around the corner in an adjacent non-cohousing development of duplex homes called Sage Place Commons. Most of those lots have been sold and homes are now under construction, but four of the original 20 lots are still available (as of May 2019).
