$20,000 dream homes are being built in this Georgia town where 70% of public land is edible

In these woods Nygren envisioned a community, one simple and intuitive, designed to maintain the rural plots and uphold the cultural food-groups: art, agriculture, health and education.



In the decades that followed, students of Auburn University’s architectural undergraduate program, Rural Studio, would share this vision with one small stipulation: the houses come at $20,000 a piece.

About Serenbe
Each of Serenbe’s four hamlets have complementary commercial centers focused on the elements of a well-lived life: arts for inspiration, agriculture for nourishment, health for wellbeing and education for awareness.

Fresh food is another of Serenbe’s natural assets, with a 25-acre organic farm, seasonal Saturday Farmer’s Market, thriving CSA program and edible landscaping, including blueberry bushes along paths and sidewalks.

Year-round cultural events include outdoor theater from Serenbe Playhouse, culinary workshops and festivals, music events, films and lectures, boutique shopping, art galleries, a spa and trail riding, plus a robust Artist in Residence program featuring dinners and talks.

Serenbe is a place you can enjoy for a meal, a weekend or call home for a lifetime.
