Wow, another 3 lots under contract in August. Lots are starting to sell fast.  Who will be next?

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

The Villages at Crest Mountain is a comprehensive green-built neighborhood 4.5 miles from downtown Asheville, North Carolina. This affordable eco-community embraces social interaction and fellowship, organic food production, renewable energy, healthy built construction, rainwater harvesting, and shared resources. The Villages at Crest Mountain offers a mixed use, sustainable neighborhood with prices well within reach of the majority of Asheville homebuyers.

On-site amenities enable residents and families to enjoy a simple, natural lifestyle in step with cutting-edge sustainable technology: VCM is proud to boast:

  • Stylish, healthy built and energy efficient homes
  • Two different lot phases, giving options of smaller affordable homes adjacent to acres of green space or larger elevated wooded lots offering panoramic views.
  • Two acres of central green space
  • Community-wide rainwater catchment
  • South facing lots for optimal solar orientation
  • Community walking trails, gardens, greenhouse, orchards, vineyards, edible landscaping and berry patches
  • Covered gathering areas and children’s play ground
  • Social programs including pot luck meals, book clubs, yard games, etc
  • Proposed community center with tavern and co-op featuring local organic beers, artisan crafts, and organic foods
