The size of the lots range between 1100 m2 and 3200 m2 (12.000 to 33000 square feet). As it turns out, the EcoVilla has so far appealed to a highly diverse, eclectic and international clientele. Out of a total of 14 lots sold There is preferred financing available as our project is registered as being of Ecological Interest .

Presently, the first three houses are under construction, while five more have begun the permitting process. The EcoVilla’s common areas are devoted to roads, gardens, a nursery, ponds and forested green areas along the length of the river. They especially proud of the fact that the EcoVilla is one of the few developments outside the Central Valley wired with fiber-optics for reliable access to high-speed Internet and other telecommunications services.

Permaculture is a creative design addressing this need in light of loss and scarcity of natural resources. It is a unique fusion of traditional scientific knowledge aspiring towards establishing a culture which promotes sustainable living throughout the planet.

The EcoVilla, like many other sustainable communities, is dedicated to the ideal of producing as much of its food as possible. The property is liberally planted with over 160 varieties of fruit trees, many of which are already producing, while a nursery provides a wide variety of both common and unusual spices and herbs. The property is also dotted by fish ponds in which Tilapia is being raised. Finally, the project will plan to plant vegetable gardens in the common areas lining the internal roads of the development.

The EcoVilla has two sources of water: It uses well water for drinking and surface water collected from nearby creeks for other uses. Individual homeowners can collect rainwater and put this to use as well.

Sewage and gray water (from sinks, baths and washing machines) are collected and piped to a bio digestor, which treats the water while producing methane gas. Once the wastewater passes through the treatment plant it is used for irrigation. The community has not yet decided how to use gas produced by

The bio digestor, but is considering the options of generating electricity, powering vehicles to be used on the development, or heating water.

The EcoVilla’s creators, when facing the issue of regulating the construction of houses, chose to give optimum discretion to the homeowner, using the criteria of energy use as the only limiting factor. This, was because lot owners and their architects proposed such a wide variety of sustainable building materials and designs, each with valid arguments supporting their cause, that it was too difficult to decide which to adopt.

Unlike many existing real estate developments where the environment is used as a selling point, but precious little is done to actually protect it, the EcoVilla is attempting to take solid steps to ensure environmental sustainability at almost every turn.

The lots, which range in size from 3200sqft (300M2) to 10,000sqft (930M2) and range in price from US$45,000 to US$110,000.
