Architectural continuity and a respect for context are important precepts in the development of The Greenbrier Sporting Club's physical environment. Accordingly, homes are shaped in a style sympathetic to either The Greenbrier's classically inspired architecture or the rugged beauty of the Allegheny Mountains. The location of the home will largely determine the recommended stylistic approach. Generally, those residences set within the hotel estate will follow the design traditions of the classic Greenbrier cottage. For sites not located in the hotel park, the style of homes is more reflective of the surrounding mountain environment. The use of natural materials and earthen colors native to the wooded mountainside permit the home to blend gracefully with its surroundings.
Preserving The Natural Environment
The natural beauty of The Greenbrier landscape will be preserved and enhanced as the Club grows. Houses are carefully sited and disturbed areas are limited to minimize their impact on the land. Landscaping plans enhance the native habitat by using indigenous vegetation. Wherever possible, trees are preserved and protected to enhance the beauty and value of properties within the estate.
Architectural Review Board
Site planning, as well as architectural and landscape design, are controlled by the Architectural Review Board (ARB), a permanent committee of The Greenbrier Sporting Club Community Association. The ARB exercises control to:

“The new astronomy program has held three events so far and each has been very well attended by members of all ages, from 4 and 5 year olds and up. Definitely the most interesting part is when Dave (Buhrman) hooks up the big telescope to the TV…it’s like watching a National Geographic special.” - Jacob Ott, Director of Outdoor Pursuits – Re: Astronomy Program (1.30.2007)
