Addison Court Housing Cooperative (ACHC) is a 10-unit nonprofit corporation in West Berkeley seeking enthusiastic new member(s) to become part of our community. ACHC is a limited-equity housing cooperative in West Berkeley, set up under the auspices of Northern California Land Trust (NCLT) especially for people with low/moderate income.
Charming garden apartment, 520 sq. ft., ground floor with redwood front porch, private front and back entrances, full bath and kitchen, hardwood floors.
We have monthly meetings governed by majority democracy, and are a diverse group of people who share some chores, periodic workdays, and gardening. Learn. Share. Grow.
We are looking for people who are willing to participate in this owner-occupied, owner-operated cooperative. Members buy a share which entitles them to live in a unit.
All ten units are small (520 Sq. ft.) private one-bedroom apartments, ground floor (but up some steps), attached, with garden space and outdoor storage space (No common house or shared indoor space). We are owner-occupied only, with occasional short-term sublets. There are no common meals or other organized activities.
We are looking for a community-minded person willing to PARTICIPATE FULLY in cooperative activities. Learn more (free EBCOHO membership required)
