Asheville NC. The Land. The Lots. The February Sky. And a Fabulous FSBO.
Sunday in the Asheville area mountains. Winter. The trees are bare. The sun is shining.
This is the perfect time to scout parcels of land . These are the days LOTS and LAND reveal what they are "made of." Take for example:
__ a For Sale By Owner (FSBO) parcel that a client and I went out to investigate today.
My client is particular. She wants privacy, but she also wants to have a sense of community.On her list of top priorities is that she be able to enjoy wildlife and be close to the National Forest. She wonders, as we drive, if she will be attracted to the parcel.
I answer in the affirmative, and smile knowing that this FSBO parcel just happens to be within a conservation-oriented community .
It's a real beauty. It is nestled in by the trails and wildlife right next to the Pisgah National Forest, but it is easily accessible. (see photos.)
On the way to see how she feels about it, this client continues to specify her parameters. She will build a LEED Certified home.
She asks questions such as:
1. " Can you refer me to an architect and a LEED builder who will take into account protection of the building site, solar orientation, wildlife preservation, erosion control, saving existing trees?
2. Might you know who will incorporate plans for a "Cradle to Cradle" design?
And then we arrive on the scene. YES. There are few special finds ( NOT a lot) this client might consider- however, LOTS where conservation based subdivision design, Low Impact Development (LID), and land development minimizes adverse environmental impact- are rare.
As we drive on the mountain road approaching the site, she catches her breath. "This is gorgeous!" she breathes. We reach the parcel. We step out into the fresh mountain air. It is not cold, but the pristine snow blankets a landscape bordered by mountains and blue sky. And she gazes at the sight as I catch a photo of her reaction. (see photo) She is impressed ... Will she fall in love with this gem?
