Community - eco friendly homes, eco friendly community asheville, asheville eco friendly houses


The idea is simple -- to create a community, not a subdivision.

The Villages at Crest Mountain believes in the fundamental community ideals of balance and responsibility. We believe in social and ecological diversity and that built environments can be healthy, productive and stylish. We choose smart over big, health over indulgence, community over expediency, and inclusion over division. Our primary objective is to maximize the sustainability of the land while keeping prices affordable.

"Americans are due for a prolonged shift away from the consumption
obsession of the post-World War II era" (Time, June 29,2009), and
we have been building monocultural subdivisions, oversized wasteful
homes, and socially divisive communities in this country for over 50
years."

Think It The vision of a residential neighborhood that embraces the growing philiosphies of sustainability, fellowship, and shared resources with stylish affordable homes just minutes from Asheville, North Carolina.
