The first batch of townhomes at North Decatur’s latest semi-detached housing enclave is ready for its closeup.

Positioned along North Druid Hills Road in Toco Hills, the Dumont Place community is rising on the former site of Grand Slam, a driving range and batting cage facility, with prices beginning in the low $400,000s.

The large, gated community by national builder Ashton Woods is eventually planned to offer 72 units with Decatur addresses, but closer to Interstate 85 than the Decatur Square.

The decorated, three-bedroom “Addison” floorplan on display now counts nearly 3,100 square feet, with prices starting at $475,000.

Beyond sheer size, a few highlights, as Ashton Woods reps pointed out this week, include a versatile “wall of wine” on the main floor, a 15-foot kitchen island, and an overall pallet that blends warmth with clean simplicity. What’s described as “midcentury modern accents” are less apparent.

Addison plans come with two-car garages, three and a half bathrooms, and a backyard overlooking the community’s walking trails.

Other customizable home plans start at $423,000.

Natural attractions nearby include the South Peachtree Creek Trail and Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve, and developers plan to incorporate three acres of green space with walking trails into the townhome community itself.

Proximity to Emory University, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the new Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta campus have also been cited as selling points.
