homes and green home communities are becoming more and more popular here in the AshevilleNC
area. Asheville has been a haven for Eco green
homes for many years now and complete Eco green communities are now being developed and sold in different parts of the greater Asheville area. So what is it that makes a community an Eco green community? There are usually many requirements that are met if a community is to be considered an Eco green home community. Probably one of the most important considerations is location and proximity to things residents will need on a daily basis.
Eco green communities have a smart location
Most eco green communities will be located in what is deemed a smart location and very close public transit, bike routes, public schools, libraries, shopping, banking and services that people need on a daily basis. Remember, cars burn gas and both the refineries that produce the gas and the car itself creates carbon emissions that are bad for the environment. A major goal of an Eco green home community is to cut down on your travels so that your carbon foot print is decreased. Eco communities will also be designed to have amenities within in the community so that more of the residents time is spent within the community to once again make travel outside the community less frequent.
Asheville Eco Green Home Communities
Asheville offers several Eco green home communities
The Villages at Crest Mountain and The Vistas of Westfield are two of our favorite Eco green home communities here in the greater Asheville area. The Vistas is a NC healthy built homes community complete with walking trails, club house and fitness center while the Villages at Crest Mountain is a LEED ND certified Eco green home community that offers its residents gated security, trails, views, club house, gardens and more. Both communities are fantastic and are making great strides to reduce carbon in this great area in which we live. As gas prices continue to rise we see more and more developers working on Eco green developments and Urban Village communities that keep residents closer to their homes.
