When we found this land and conceived Whisper Mountain
Asheville, NC (PRWEB) May 9, 2008
The conservation-driven NC mountain real estate development of Whisper Mountain, home of the 2008 Southern Living "Green" Idea House, has teamed up with EcoHouse Realty of Asheville to market and sell their North Carolina mountain homes. Together the two companies are hoping to set the standard for thoughtfully planned and executed Asheville NC real estate.
Whisper Mountain is a leader right now in conscious NC mountain real estate development. Their location and amenities represent a contemporary lifestyle in a rustic setting, all planned with full regard for environmental conservation, historical preservation, and reverence for the insurmountable beauty abundantly displayed here in Western North Carolina. Mountain homes are valuable commodities, even in the face of a struggling market. Local companies like Whisper Mountain and EcoHouse are investing their time and money in the realm of environmentally sensitive NC mountain real estate practices--more importantly, they are helping people make smart investments in sustainable homes and Asheville, NC real estate.
"When we found this land and conceived Whisper Mountain," says owner and developer Charlie Ball, "we knew our results would be best and most inspiring if everyone involved truly shared the vision of what a green community in these mountains can be. That's why we're so excited to announce that EcoHouse Realty has become our partner for Whisper Mountain home and homesite sales. Their vision perfectly aligns with ours. They are green leaders who truly walk their talk--and some of the most delightful people you could ever hope to meet."
EcoHouse Realty is Asheville's premier, full-service Realtor™ exclusively representing eco-friendly North Carolina mountain homes and property. All of its brokers are certified eco-realtors-- graduates of a pioneering, Asheville-based education program--and seasoned environmental advocates in their own right. As such, they fully appreciate Whisper Mountain's conservation and preservation excellence and its commitment to "green" mountain real estate building practices. Their enthusiasm springs from something deeper than the opportunity to close sales and net commissions. Whisper Mountain exemplifies their own dreams for this region, coming true.
While the developers of Whisper Mountain are planning for conservation of resources and efficiency of design, the realtors at EcoHouse consider every aspect of a mountain real estate transaction, from a building's environmental impact and energy efficiency to its economic feasibility. This is what finding quality Asheville North Carolina real estate is all about. And this is what it means to invest not only in a home, but also in your community and your planet.
The Whisper Mountain / EcoHouse partnership is the product of a meeting of minds that began last year. The founders and owners of EcoHouse Realty, Jack Bebber and Rob Moody, are also co-owners of EcoBuilders, a leading, Asheville-based green home builder chosen to build the Platinum LEED for Homes-certified, ultra-green Southern Living Idea House now nearing completion at Whisper Mountain. This home combines stunning design and craftsmanship with such earth-friendly features as solar thermal and photovoltaic panels, rain water catchment and grey-water systems, radiant floor heating, tankless water heating, recycled metal roofing, Energy Star appliances, and more.
"Whisper Mountain is far and away the region's finest green community," says Jack Bebber. "We're honored to add our mark here by building the Idea House. Now, representing Whisper Mountain through EcoHouse takes us to a new level. We'll have the pleasure of uniting great sites and homes with their new owners. We'll be inviting a whole new, green community to come together.
"Historically," notes Bebber, "the projects and places that make the greatest lasting contribution embody a purity of vision and excellence of execution, from the Biltmore House and Grove Park Inn to Asheville's great public buildings and historic homes. We believe that Whisper Mountain will take its place within our region's legacy, and we are pleased and proud to play a part in its unfolding."
Whisper Mountain's philosophies and goals align beautifully with EcoHouse's vision for sustainable living, creating a natural partnership that both parties hope will thrive well into the future of Asheville NC real estate. Both companies are committed to building an even greater community and place for future generations to live.
