Sergeant House

31 Studio Apartments - 15 Renovated, 16 New

Valley Community Development is partnering with Way Finders to address structural defects, worn elements, lack of energy efficiency, and lack of accessibility. Together they will accomplish a major renovation and addition to the property.

Valley Community Development has owned and operated this antique building (circa 1820) in Northampton since 1990 as a traditional 15-room Single Room Occupancy with 1 common kitchen and 4 common bathrooms.  Prior to 1990, the building served as a family homeless shelter and a former lodging house. Located on a ½ acre lot in a high-income neighborhood in downtown Northampton, The Sergeant House at 82 Bridge Street is an excellent site for affordable housing.
