Log Home News: Award-Winning Green Community Invites Home Buyers to Join in Conservation
Log Homes along the Blue Ridge Parkway in demand.
Blues Ridge Parkway, NC (PRWEB) December 13, 2007 — Cielo Falls, a gorgeous premium log home community with an emphasis on sustainable development, is proud to announce having earned the prestigious “Mountain Homes Award” for Environmental Conservation.
Mountain Homes and FRIENDS, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Parkway, established the award to honor efforts to protect the environment of our Southern Mountains. Cielo Falls stands out with miles of low-impact trails, expertly managed, blue-ribbon trout streams, a more energy efficient design than traditional wood or brick construction, and a groundbreaking rainwater collection and water management system. Pairing green development values with the serene setting and family-friendly activities made Cielo Falls the “very best” among a group of nominees that “exceeded expectations”, says Norma Lugar of Mountain Homes.
Cielo Falls is an ecologically-conscious, luxury log home community set on 1,100 acres of pristine Blue Ridge Mountain real estate in North Carolina. Just 1.2 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, the private gated, master-planned community offers the relaxation of an exclusive mountain resort, just minutes from Boone, Blowing Rock and West Jefferson.
The development consists of approximately 250 residences, with the initial homes under construction and 40 amazing homesites available for sale now. The homes are exclusively designed by Heritage Log Homes, featuring traditional log and timber construction, gourmet kitchens, high-speed internet, cable and networked security/fire alarm systems.
Among the facilities listed in the Property Report is a grand 30,000 sq. ft. rustic Clubhouse, featuring a massive great room with a standing 45 foot tall fireplace, catering kitchen for events, executive center and library, fitness facilities, game room, racquet ball court, two tennis courts, a basketball court, media room, and a 12.000 sq. ft sparkling heated indoor pool with an expansive hot tub and sprawling terraces with unbelievable vistas. Throughout the property, more than nine miles of low-impact trails, rustic gazebos, play areas, four more intimate outdoor pool facilities and picnic pavilions will provide a lifetime of warm memories for the whole family while protecting the beauty of the natural surroundings in this gated private community.
Residences are available for sale now, and visits to the award-winning property may be scheduled through the main office in scenic Boone, NC.
