Is Pacifica Right For Me

We think cohousing is great, but it’s not for everyone.

Are the houses shared?
No. Cohousing is more about connections than shared living arrangements. Each household lives in a private home, with individual residents setting their own balance between privacy and community. However, the design of cohousing means you’ll interact with neighbors when you pick up mail, walk to your car or work in your garden. Cohousing neighbors collaboratively manage shared space.

Virtual Tour

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!

Directions

Pacifica is located in Carrboro, North Carolina. All houses are on Viburnum Way, at the end of Hanna Street. For GPS you can use “143 Viburnum Way,” the address of the Common House.

From downtown Carrboro: head North on Greensboro Street. After passing Estes Drive, Hanna Street is the fourth street on the 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, please park on Hanna Street.

History and Values

The idea of our community began in 2001 when architect Giles Blunden, a resident of Carrboro cohousing community Arcadia (link) and other interested people decided to create a cohousing site closer to downtown Carrboro.

The community celebrates its anniversary on May 1, 2006, the date the first homeowners moved in.
