Rocky Corner is a new neighborhood of 30 homes being built in Bethany, Connecticut.
We want to return to the spirit of neighborhoods past, where neighbors help neighbors.
We want to live sustainably—to use fewer resources and share more.
We have designed Rocky Corner as a cohousing community where residents will own their homes.
We are building soon! Join us!
Rocky Corner will be the first cohousing community in Connecticut.
We are the people who are planning to live there, so we have hired the best of the best to help us design and build.
Our homes will be efficient, beautiful and low maintenance. Our residences will be clustered on a small portion in the center of the property, preserving the rest for recreation, farmland, and habitat. The plan is a terrific example of low impact design.
The thirty homes and common house at Rocky Corner will be brand new, Energy Star structures.
- Comfortable, passive solar compact homes with low energy and maintenance costs
- One, two, three and four-bedroom cape style homes
- Customizable features and layout
- Aging in place—a bedroom and bath on every first floor
- Parking near your home
- Affordable housing subsidies available

Rocky Corner welcomes families of all kinds. We’re designing Rocky Corner to accommodate an organic farm, to be managed by interested community members. We make decisions efficiently and transparently using a model of governance called sociocracy in accordance with our community values.
