RoseWind Cohousing is in Port Townsend, Washington, an artsy, socially-conscious, dynamic small town of 9,000 situated on the northeast corner of the Olympic Peninsula. Seattle is 2-3 hours away by car or bus and ferry. Find us on Google map on the Olympic Peninsula and the Quimper Peninsula.
RoseWind sits on nine acres inside the city limits. Our views are pastoral (we border on a vineyard), yet we are minutes from everything in town. Local amenities include an excellent food co-op, movie theaters, a Carnegie library, farmers’ market, locally brewed beer and cider, seasonal festivals, and many music and arts activities. Walking, biking and very short car rides are the norm here. The climate is mild, with only 17 inches of precipitation annually.
Each family owns its own house and yard plus a share of our 4.5 acres of commonly-held property, including a playground and playfield, small orchards, a large vegetable garden, and a 2800 square foot community hall. The overall layout encourages a combination of privacy and community.
Houses at RoseWind are all different and include a variety of styles and materials: a dome, two RASTRA block and stucco houses, a straw-bale, and many stick-frame houses. Sizes range from 880 to 2880 square feet. Two of the houses were built in collaboration with Habitat for Humanity.
