Want to buy a house? A HOUSE IS FOR SALE! FIND OUT MORE.

Occasionally houses come up for sale in Hockerton Housing Project. The opportunity to buy a house is rare. It is always sad to see old residents move on and yet exciting to have new neighbours. There are a great deal of opportunities in the project, both socially and in our trading business.  You get full access to both when you move in. Living here is a mix of individual time and space combined with community. The houses are self-contained but there are also lots of shared elements around them. The houses have their own front and back gardens with access to the land around them jointly. This mix has proven to be popular with families.

Children have always loved playing here in a community space having lots of fun. Always very comforting to know that the neighbours will keep a weather eye out for them too. We have found it an incredibly supportive and safe place for children. In fact one of my children has come back to live here as a grown up! What better testament is there than that.

The grown-up stuff. As a community we have to cooperatives set up one for running the community business and one for organising the domestic side. These are Hockerton Housing Project Trading Ltd and Hockerton Housing Project Ltd. Each of these has its own organisation structures. More information on this and how to join can be found here. We suggest you read the community rules in these companies’ documents before joining the group and we will help you understand them if you come along to one of our community meetings. They come to life in a meeting!

Please contact us if you think you might want to buy one of our houses.
