On our annual Fall Leaves photo shoot we strolled into mature hard woods at Three Creeks Preserve. (This is a local eco community within about 40 minutes of Asheville and only 10 minutes from Lake Lure, NC.)
Following the colors, we traversed a foot bridge then connected with a trail that winds from the eco community at Three Creeks out into almost 300 acres of diverse terrain.
What a canvas! As we continued on we climbed to the panorama of red, gold and purple and the mountain overlook.
(Photo of Autumn in the Greater Asheville, NC Area. It is So beautiful!)
"AWESOME! " I sighed. "No wonder there are only two (2) building sites remaining here."
I am in the business of finding incredible land for my clients. And the Greater Asheville area abounds with special finds. Yet, I can see myself building my very own green-built dream home at Three Creeks Eco-community.
Why? A couple of reasons:
1) Because the very foundation of this conservation neighborhood rests on maintaining a healthy and diverse ecosystem- a place where people can choose to live among caring neighbors, sharing their inspiration and enthusiasm. Here is an established sustainable community.
2) Investment potential. According to RETIREMENT LIFESTYLES MAGAZINE www.retiresouth.com. "NORTH CAROLINA has proven to be one of the top five retirement states in the nation over the past 30 years and, despite a blip in the housing market, will continue to be attractive to boomers, empty-nesters and retirees."
That means I can expect good appreciation and value for my money.
Three Creeks (the conservation neighborhood, itself) is an establishedEco Community where families will find much to do together and where folks of all ages can enjoy the beautifully landscaped areas the earth-friendly paved driveways, the miles of nature trails that Lead to almost 300 Acres of conservation land. And don't forget the Waterfalls ! All this is within the eco-community lands. As is a spring fed swimming pond and a community library/cabin. Creative retirees tell me they love it here.
Outdoor Activities: Hiking trails wind through meadows and down to beautiful waterfalls and up to the gorgeous mountain overlook. We love the Nature Parks and Trails. And I can see my grandkids here with me as I guide them on pathways designed for All Ages.
And I can see us all at the "swimming hole." Of course, just minutes away is Lake Lure, with beaches open for summertime fun. homeowners. Water/ Marina/ Boating opportunities are just 15 minutes away at Lake Lure, too. Golf courses are available within a short drive of Three Creeks.
Important to know: Because the eco developers at Three Creeks have, for years, been on the leading edge of sustainable innovation, the conservation acreage around the small eco-neighborhood (just 19 home sites on 277+ AC) will always be in its natural state for you and your family to enjoy for generations to come!
