Eden Ridge attended to this new shift in importance!
Eden Ridge implemented “the 5-minute rule”—putting shopping, dining, socializing, indoor fitness, and outdoor recreation within walking or biking distance—while also being a short drive to downtown Raleigh.
Communities of the past focused on selling views, water or golf, while might require residents to drive even for the smallest task. – Sometimes it took a 10-minute drive just to get a jar of milk. Today, both baby boomers and millennials, embrace the value of new urbanism, which heavily emphasizes the concept of walkability. “Walkability is the key.
Successful communities must offer not only great home designs but a great place to live. People are looking for experiences where they can live, work, play, shop, workout, and socialize, with minimal driving, preferably all within walking distance.
Walking encourages social interaction within the community, much more than driving does. Eden Ridge has nailed this concept!”, states Nick Fugh.
For over 20 years, the build team of Sage Built has developed communities and built over 900 energy efficient custom luxury homes throughout the Raleigh, Cary, Durham, Apex, Chapel Hill, Pinehurst, and Pittsboro markets and won numerous awards.
