Southern Living Idea House 2008

One of this year's Southern Living Idea Houses is located 17 miles northwest of Asheville in Whisper Mountain.

EcoBuilders, an Asheville green construction company, built the home with eco-friendly features such as solar thermal and photovoltaic panels, rain water catchment and grey-water systems, radiant floor heating, tankless water heating, recycled metal roofing, and Energy Star appliances. The home was also built with non-toxic, and mostly locally produced building materials.

The house is a 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom modernized farmhouse design, with a detached barn-style structure holding the 2 car garage and large guest suite. For more details on the house, click here. The house will enter the NC real estate market on October 12, and until then it is now open for public viewing.

11 a.m.-5 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday
1-5 p.m. Sunday
Admission is $5
