This research uses a sequence of hedonic spatial regressions for a metropolitan housing makert in the Southeastern United States to explore a new procedure that establishes the relationship between the value attributable to open space and distance from housing locations (a "distance-decay function") within a given community. A distance-decay function allows identification of the range of distance over which open space affects housing values and the estimation of a proxy for the value added to nearby houses resulting from hypothetical open space preservation. Ex post analyses of the open-space regression coefficients suggest marginal implicit price functions for three types of open space that decay as open space area increases with respect to house location.
