What is Quimper Village?

Members of Quimper Village are developing a cohousing community in Port Townsend. Janet, a member of Quimper Village, explains that as an active adult, she is looking forward to getting the Village built and sharing community with others.

Quimper Village is a 55+ senior cohousing community being built in a vibrant coastal town in the heart of Washington’s rain shadow, known for both intellectual and outdoor activities, arts, and easy living. Starting with a core group of six member households (couples and singles), we searched for and found a suitable location, then chose experienced cohousing architects to assist us in the design and development of our project. When it’s finished in 2017, we will have 28 homes in a closely knit, caring community with shared values and we will be living in houses that balance a sense of neighborhood with the need for personal privacy.

Quimper Village’s design includes a large common house where we will share frequent dinners and other activities. There will be space for members to gather for activities, informal coffee and conversation or meeting on the terrace for an afternoon brew. We will also have a spacious workshop, a garden shed and an artist studio. The pathways to our homes will facilitate interaction with our neighbors. We will be a tobacco-free community.
