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.
