What’s Better – a Green Home or a Green Neighborhood?
We all know by now that an energy efficient green home is good for both our pocketbook and the environment. What is a Green Neighborhood, you ask? Well, it’s simply a community that has access to nature and walking trails.
Everyone understands that a walk in the park or nature feels good. Outdoor lovers understand that fitness and fresh air go very well together.
We all should strive to stay active, but sometimes busy schedules make it difficult. Activity level is relative, but just a few walks a week can have many benefits. Many choose to go to a health club, but this could take 1.5 to 3 hours out of your day depending on your workout routine, distance from home or work, and if you need to shower afterwards.
That is why Grenadier Homes often builds in master-planned communities that have many places for convenient walks in nature or runs on trails. We want our residents to enjoy their surroundings.
But, as I started to research more about this, I was really surprised at just how beneficial this access to nature is.
Here are some of my findings:
So, if you live in a Green Neighborhood and you take advantage of the convenience of the nature surrounding you, you should experience the benefits of very likely a healthier heart, healthier brain, and a better mood.
So, all you must do is put on your shoes and walk out the door, and Vitamin G (free – no deductible) is waiting for you!
At Grenadier Homes, we offer you Villa townhomes in both a Green Home and a Green Neighborhood.
