The Best Neighborhoods In Ashland Oregon
Let’s take a look at two of our favorite residential neighborhoods in Ashland.
Verde Village – Eco-friendly Family Neighborhood in Ashland Oregon
Verde Village is the 1st Zero Energy Ready community in the state of Oregon! Listen to Dave DeCarlow, Project Manager for KDA Homes, talk about his experience building an Earth Advantage Platinum & Zero Energy Ready certified community in Ashland, Oregon. With enough solar installed, these homes are able to be entirely powered by the sun!
The inspiration for Verde Village came from an idea to reduce Ashland’s carbon footprint in style by creating a sustainable community of zero-energy ready, certified Earth Advantage Platinum contemporary homes.
Verde Village offers convenient access to downtown, the Ashland dog park, hiking/biking trails, Mt. Ashland, and more. This neighborhood features plenty of open space for kids to play, walking paths, and a community garden. Surrounded by lush trees and just a stone’s throw from the Bear Creek Greenway, which runs alongside beautiful Bear Creek, Verde Village is an idyllic neighborhood showcasing the best that Ashland has to offer. Each home is lifelong housing certified, making Verde Village a great neighborhood for both young families and those looking for a home to spend their later years in.
Kestrel Park – Best Up-and-Coming Neighborhood In Ashland Oregon
The Kestrel Park neighborhood is a tight-knit community of single-family homes, townhomes and cottages just steps away from a lovely 3-acre community open-space, Kestrel Park. The surrounding neighborhood homes are fairly new, with the oldest being built around 2007. On any given day you will see people walking their dogs, enjoying the park, open spaces, views of the Siskiyou Mountains and Ashland Hills, and listening to nearby Bear Creek that meanders through the area. Future plans include walking and biking trails that connect to the Bear Creek Greenway and downtown Ashland.
All this to say- Kestrel Park is one of Ashland’s best up-and-coming neighborhoods.
Kestrel Park features Prairie-inspired architecture, top-quality construction, and exquisite amenities and finishes in single-family plans, homes with accessory dwellings, and rear-load garage designs. KDA Homes offers custom, semi-custom, and pre-designed plans. Each individual home includes 12 solar panels, Energy Star dishwashers and stainless-steel appliances, high-efficiency tankless water heaters, Daiken mini-split heat and air conditioning systems, and gas fireplaces.
This gorgeous development is surrounded by nature with lovely open spaces overlooking Bear Creek, the tranquil Siskiyou Mountains, and charming Ashland City Lights. KDA Homes is proud to deliver this environmentally conscious project focused on preserved wetlands, biking, and walking paths, and renewable rooftop solar, carefully built to Earth Advantage Platinum, Lifelong Housing, and Ashland FireSafe Standards.
