Puget Ridge cohousing in an urban cohousing community with 23 households on 2.4 acres in West Seattle. Our units are cedar-sided duplexes and triplexes that face one another in a village-like setting. The front porches open onto courtyards and common areas, making it easy to visit neighbors, watch children and share our lives.
Our 4000-square-foot common house has a kitchen, living room, playroom, guest room, shop, laundry, and a wonderful outdoor patio. We share meals 2-3 times a week there.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
