Sizable offerings in the “Townsend at Brookhaven” community won’t be a million bucks

Across Atlanta’s real estate landscape, recent years have seen the advent of $1.5 million new Beltline townhomes in Old Fourth Ward and $850,000 options in Loring Heights, along with similarly attached units asking north of a half-million bucks in places like East Atlanta Village, Ormewood Park, and Kirkwood.

Prices that, in short, were unthinkable not so long ago.

The latest entrant to Atlanta’s new-build townhouse scene is offering entry points a little lower—in a place not typically associated with buyer discounts.

Tucked between Buford Highway and North Druid Hills Road, south of the Brookhaven Village, the first wave of residences is coming to market at a project called “Townsend at Brookhaven,” where prices will start in the mid-$400,000s, reps tell Curbed Atlanta.

A project by national homebuilder and developer Taylor Morrison, the gated community is marketed as being in “the highly desirable City of Brookhaven,” minutes from Lenox Square, Town Brookhaven, Interstate 85, and even Perimeter Mall.

“We’re scheduled to open our first model home for the public later this month, along with a few move-in ready homes,” a project rep wrote in an email.

Exactly how high prices will go—maybe it’s $7 million?—wasn’t specified.

Plans call for 47 townhomes to eventually rise, alongside a “sparkling pool with a cabana” that’s scheduled to begin construction next year, plus a community fire pit and green space. It’s described as a “luxury” approach overall.

The brick-sided units themselves won’t exactly be skimpy. Expect just north of 2,200 square feet, up to four bedrooms, and three and half bathrooms with each.

Interiors will include “impressive great rooms, gourmet kitchens complemented with hardwood and tile finishes, and fireside gathering rooms along with additional spaces ideal for a home office, media room, or private guest suite,” per the official pitch.

For parents interested in the north ITP townhome lifestyle, project leaders note that kids “can attend Woodward Elementary School, Sequoyah Middle School, and Cross Keys High School along with a number of prestigious private schools in the area.”
