What is a pocket neighborhood?

​A pocket neighborhood is a collection of homes which are strategically nested together and centered on a shared open space or common area. This design promotes neighborly interaction while preserving personal space and privacy. This principle is central to The Cottages at Port Place and all Cottage Advisors communities.


Our philosophy is to work with the landscape rather than against it. As such, we have placed an emphasis on sustainable design, low maintenance living, and home sites which are positioned to engage with nature, foster a true sense of community, and encourage new traditions.

“ What a great experience we've had with Cottage Advisors. From start to finish, they advised us of the process, made selections easy, and have been very responsive in all communications. We love the house, our neighbors, and we're looking forward to this next chapter in a new town! ”
