Dateline Asheville, North Carolina, September, 2009
Real Estate News and Views from Green Asheville's "Stay-in-Your-Home" Eco-Steward
I've been out on the trails at Creston Preserve this week, reporting in almost daily with short posts and from my little hand-held camera.
I figure that's a good way for you to see a "down-to-earth" vision of life in the mountains near Asheville.Creston is an eco-friendly development whose thoughtful and thorough protective covenants and design guidelines preserve mountain views, natural splendor, and visual harmony.
To me being environmentally sensitive makes sense since North Carolina's ancient mountains are treasures. Two main crests- the Western or Unaka Front along the Tennessee-North Carolina border and the Eastern Front in North Carolina-remind those who live, visit and relocate here of this each day. With a number of "cross ridges" between the two main crests and subranges ( Asheville area's Black Mountains, and Mount Mitchell at 6,684 feet -see earlier video ) there is plenty of adventure for trail hikers of all levels of accomplishment.
I am attracted to the trails at Creston-miles of them, some leading right to Catawba Falls!
And I am attracted, as well, to this eco-community's environmentally sensitive home design guidelines because they help to maintain a sense of visual harmony between homes and the natural environment. Look for photos soon to see homes inspired by the Craftsman, Bungalow, and Post and Beam styles. In the meantime , plan to come for a walk with me on this trail ! Grandkids will love this one. Let me know what you think.
