The Pacifica Co-Housing Community is Carrboro on steroids. It is built around a central Common House that gives everyone a great space for their parties, dinners, movie nights, dances, and hobbies. There is a guest house with several rooms that can be reserved when you have extra guests and a laundry that uses rain water and solar energy. There is a ball-field, playground, and several fenced in vegetable gardens where you and your family can enjoy harvesting fresh tomatoes, squash, or strawberries. Paved paths throughout the community make this perfect for kids riding bikes away from traffic, or having a quiet stroll around the neighborhood.
