Charlottesville Green Homes

Charlottesville Virginia is beginning to see an increase in the demand for energy-efficient and environmentally friendly "green" type construction. This site has been created for the Charlottesville home buyer who wants to be sure that their next home purchase includes sustainability. For a complete selection of newly constructed homes as well as homes to be built in Charlottesville, visit

“Green” begins with environmentally safe and sustainable materials used in the construction of the home. Though adaptations as simple as energy efficient light bulbs or low-flow faucets can make a difference, this site features only homes that offer some sort of "EarthCraft" certification or EnergyStar appliances, or alternative heating and cooling systems. Other types of more traditional construction can be found in the specialty links below.

Many of the Charlottesville area "green" homes have the "Earthcraft" designation. An EarthCraft designation is achieved based on earning points in the categories of:

  • Site Planning
  • Energy Efficient Building Envelope and Systems
  • Resource Efficient Design
  • Resource Efficient Building Materials
  • Waste Management
  • Indoor Air Quality
  • Water Conservation (Indoor and Outdoor)
  • Homeowner Education
  • Builder Operations
  • Bonus/Innovation Points
