Welcome Home to Asheville- the "Happiest City in the USA!"
Live Asheville- Real Estate Relocating Buyers' Toolkit (Part 2) .
Site and Design Evaluation: A Sustainable and Comfortable Environment
A Sustainable Site Design preserves mature hardwood trees and native greenery while taking advantage of the southern exposure with good "green" and passive solar design. Design elements include south -facing glass doors and a configuration that brings daylight deep into the house, connects the interior space to native hardwood trees, offer pristine views of the mountains, while the southern exposure allows for solar energy gain.
1. ONE of my personal favorites, is this potential second/vacation home or permanent residence perfect for the "Gentle-person Farmer" to relax and create a place for urban chickens and a couple horses. If you'd like to see a video of the interior of this home,please let me know.
Here people of all ages and abilities can enjoy the open concept: Kitchen, living, and dining areas encompass a welcoming space with large areas of glazing on the south side. Windows are protected during the hot summer months by the mature deciduous trees, adding to the house's overall energy efficiency.
The north and west face has minimum window area. The color palette (bronze) of the exterior surfaces will absorb solar energy during the winter months. The abundance of hardwood trees around the house will keep it cool during the warmer seasons while also maintaining complete privacy. The net result will be low energy use with low utility bill. Priced at $475K, this 3+acre home is just a 20 minute drive to downtown Asheville, NC.
2. ANOTHER of my personal favorites is this beautifully Renovated Madison County Farm Home.
(Photos show easy access to sun-blessed home and the view of Mt. Mitchell taken from acreage above the home.)
Here, clients can think about building on a site with city water and sewer while enjoying the benefit a welcoming home in which to stay. Notice the energy-saving advantage of passive solar gain, sunny gardening spots, and the visual connection to nature. Priced at $227K, this 6+acre home is just a 20 minute drive to downtown Asheville, NC.
