We think co-housing is pretty great, but it’s not for everyone. To help you figure out if Pacifica may be a good fit, we offer a few cautionary notes, and some suggested ways you can get to know us, and co-housing more generally.
We hope the following photos will give you a taste of life in Pacifica.
Our houses are as individual as we are. The bright turquoise metal roofs sure make us stand out on Google Maps!
Pacifica is located in Carrboro, North Carolina. Pacifica's houses are all on Viburnum Way, which is at the end of Hanna Street. To get to Pacifica from downtown Carrboro, go north on Greensboro Street. After passing Estes Drive, Hanna Street will be the fourth street on your right. Follow Hanna Street until you come to a traffic circle, and then take the first right towards the stop sign. Follow the signs toward the Visitor Parking lot. If this lot is full, visitors should park on Hanna Street.
The first residents moved in to Pacifica in 2006, but the community's history stretches back to about 2001. At that time, architect Giles Blunden, who lives in one of Carrboro's other cohousing communities, Arcadia, and a group of interested people sought to create a cohousing community close to downtown Carrboro.
Thanks for stopping by.
