The last couple of years have seen the emergence of a single-family housing style known as "modern farmhouse" in Atlanta, especially in hip eastside neighborhoods. Anecdotally speaking, the style seems to be a hit, as examples in Ormewood Park, Reynoldstown, Edgewood, and East Atlanta, among other places, were quickly scooped from the market. Now, a father-son team called Walsh Design is responding by launching a wave of houses with farmhouse influences — all of them with millennial-friendly locations near the Beltline, MARTA, or within walking distance to commercial villages, officials tell Curbed.
Avenue Realty officials describe the Walsh Design product as "truly one-of-a-kind" with "reclaimed wood used as a backsplash to original plumbing recycled into custom hardware to modern lighting fixtures and designer tile work," the homes "have an urban feel that are perfect for their surroundings."
Below is a list of ongoing and upcoming projects, followed by a few glimpses of what these neighborhoods can expect:
- Two large, attached homes are under construction at 1083 Hardee St. Each will offer four bedrooms and three and 1/2 bathrooms.
- Just south of Kirkwood, in the Parkview neighborhood, Walsh Design is building five homes in the minimalist farmhouse style at 219 S. Howard Ave. The company notes the location is two blocks south of the Kirkwood Village.
- Three new builds in Grant Park feature "classic exteriors and modern farmhouse interiors," per the company. Their addresses: 654 Woodward Ave., 907 Boulevard, and 688 Grant Terrace.
- Last but not least, the four-bedroom project in East Atlanta at 1431 Metropolitan Ave. is "a Victorian style home with a clean farmhouse interior," with "a welcoming front porch, carriage house with two-car garage, and two levels of rear decks."
