Indy’s east side to gain a sustainable community with designer homes



Indianapolis, Indiana – As part of a sustainability initiative, Beville Greens presents a neighborhood of six greenhouses tucked away in a communal green area. This development is a wonderful example of eco-friendly, reasonably-priced living that strikes a balance between modern architecture and the natural world.

Three bedrooms and two bathrooms are featured in each of the roughly 1100 square foot residences. Completely finished basements and a communal storage unit are included, guaranteeing that this project prioritizes utility and convenience.

These are small, high-performing dwellings that put an emphasis on responsible design and energy efficiency. Important architectural elements include effective tilt and turn windows, R-50 attic insulation, external sun blinds, and exterior insulation made of metal cladding.

The homes’ built-in features and efficient lighting further improve their usability. For example, the open-concept kitchen has a pull-away dining table that seats five, the basement has built-in storage units, and there is a media center space in the living room.

With community gardens, a pollinator garden of native plants, and an orchard with persimmon and berry trees, as well as a central gathering area with a communal fire pit, these locations foster social interaction.

Each of the six residences has a view of the central green area, which the “very minimal” Homeowners Association will maintain.

Early in2019, the Beville Greens project was conceived, overcoming re-zoning and permitting obstacles. On two plots of property that had been unoccupied for more than 20 years, construction started 18 months ago. Both of the original homes on each parcel in the development are for sale.

By the time of their second presentation on Sunday, October 22, 2023, the majority of the construction should be finished. The last four residences are anticipated to be finished by the end of fall 2024, with phase two scheduled to begin construction in the spring of that same year.

Principal of NEON Architecture, Brian Burtch, sees this as a “passion project.” According to Burtch, it will serve as a trailblazing example of sustainable development in the future and raise the standard for responsible community life.

The median sale price of single-family houses in nearby Arsenal Heights is approximately $388,750, according to real estate firm Redfin. The $300,000 homes at Beville Greens are listed by @Properties and offer an opportunity for communities and environmentally aware households looking for cost-effective, sustainable living choices.
