Wine Down

Port Williams, Nova Scotia

We are a Nova Scotia based group that has purchased 27 acres of land in Port Williams. We are just outside of Wolfville and an hour from Halifax. We plan to design and development our own cohousing community. Although there is no age restriction the current members are closer to retirement ages and the community will have this slant.

Our intent is to use approximately 5 acres to build a cohousing community consisting of a common house and, tentatively, 16 homes or units. These will likely consist of 8 individual homes and 8 condo style units in a multi-unit building but the exact ratio will be determined during the design phase. It is anticipated that unit sizes will range from 850 sq ft to 1,400 sq ft a Common House of 3,000 sq ft. We plan to have some initial sketches this month but final design will be determined by the investors over the next year. Our plan, possibly overly enthusiastic, would be to start construction in 2020.

During the next months we will develop our own website to provide updates.

Further information can be found by email: and happy to talk by phone after contact. This is ideal, we feel, for those Nova Scotians who want to come home and live in the beautiful Annapolis Valley.
