Wheel Estates

A resident-owned community

 

Welcome Home!

Wheel Estates Tenants Association is a resident-owned manufactured home community in North Adams, Mass. Wheel Estates is conveniently located in a suburban setting that’s an easy drive to both Pittsfield, N.H. and the beautiful Berkshires in Western Massachusetts. Our ideal setting allows for easy access to Interstate 90, and we can be in Boston or Providence, R.I., in just under three hours. We are a friendly neighborhood for people who love outdoor activities.

Clarksburg State Park is a short 11-minute drive, where we enjoy hiking and afternoon picnics. The views of the Berkshire Hills, part of the Appalachian mountains, are spectacular, especially in the fall months. Just five minutes from MASS MoCA, an art mecca with galleries and indoor and outdoor performing arts venues, we are centrally located for easy access to all that North Adams has to offer.

Wheel Estates is owned by the Community Members who live here – we are a resident-owned community (ROC).

We own it

The Member homeowners of Wheel Estates control the rent and make the rules. On May 1, 2013, the ROC purchased the land and infrastructure, such as the roads and water lines. Now, a democratically elected Board of Directors manages the business of running Wheel Estates Tenants Association. Every Member household in the community has a say in who sits on the Board, how we spend our money, the annual budget, and whether we make changes to the rent.

We’re also part of a national network of more than 250 ROCs just like us. That membership provides us with access to expert coaching on how to run our ROC, leadership development and training, communication with dozens of community leaders who face many of the same issues we do, and more. Life in Wheel Estates is truly different than in a commercially owned community – we invite you to find out firsthand how that difference makes living here so much better.
