ElderSpirit – Home for sale

Land + Real Estate
ElderSpirit Community, Abingdon, Southwest Virginia near Tennessee border.


After 14 years we are offering our one-bedroom home in ElderSpirit Community for sale.

  • We are located in the center of this well-established community, across the plaza from the Common House. Living in a cohousing community for people over the age of 55 has been wonderful for us. We’ve made many close friends over the years. People help each other out, we have community dinners twice a week, and we’re encouraged to pursue our own spiritual paths.
  • Our home is 754 sf with a 10×10 deck in back and a small front porch. The layout makes it seem quite spacious.
  • Through a picture window we overlook a pocket park that gives on to the famed Virginia Creeper Trail, where we’ve spent many hours walking or riding our bikes.
  • We are sorry to say goodbye to this very positive life style, but we need to move to be closer to our kids. Asking price $149,000.
  • Give Roger a call at 276-492-0503 or email [email protected] to discuss your interest in our home.
