In Sandy Springs, new townhomes offer the well-heeled a chance to ‘downsize’

Starting at $859K, sprawling properties come to an area being dominated by apartment development

Apartment developments along Roswell Road in Sandy Springs have become all the rage in the past few years, but homebuyers aren’t being left out of the construction boom in the northern suburb.

Although they may be priced out.

In a city once known for suburban single-family homes, sprawling yards are out and townhome living is in (with price tags to match this apparent demand). A collection of new townhomes by Sheehan Built Homes, billed as “The Ten at Lake Forrest,” highlights the trend of upscale living on a downsized lot.

Located a few blocks from what’s quickly becoming the heart of Sandy Springs, each four-bedroom, three-and-1/2 bath unit features Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, custom cabinetry and tile, screened porches, garages for three cars, and upwards of 3,500 square feet.

The townhomes—which are larger than many single-family homes—are billed as perfect for those wishing “to remain in the area after downsizing from larger estates.” Woof.

The smallest options at the development start at $859,000 and presumably go up from there. But, with apartment prices tanking in the city earlier this year, maybe it’s cheaper to just rent a few units down the street.

Construction on the homes is anticipated to wrap in December.
