Developers hope potential homebuyers looking for suburban living near urban amenities—or homebuyers priced out of truly urban centers—could find a fit in a new community rising near the Historic Marietta Square.

Located in Marietta’s Renaissance District, just off Roswell Street, Mangêt will feature detached single-family homes priced from the mid-$300,000s to the high $400,000s. Sales recently launched, though no finished homes are currently available.

Floorplans will range from three bedrooms and three bathrooms up to five bedrooms and four bathrooms, with flexible third-level bonus spaces.

According to Traton Homes, the community developer, the homes’ outward appearances focus on classically inspired designs, featuring timeless architecture.

Inside, gourmet kitchens flow into large family rooms, while spacious owner’s suites incorporate luxe bathrooms. Hardwood floors and tray ceilings are joined by such trendy finishes as shiplap and designer tile.

Currently, the site plan on the Traton Homes website shows 36 home sites with the potential for expansion.

Throughout the community, green spaces, gathering areas, and pocket parks are incorporated into plans with the goal of encouraging “neighborly interactions and gatherings reminiscent of a simpler time,” per Traton Homes officials.

The Historic Marietta Square is a 15-minute walk away, providing access to dining, shopping, entertainment, and special events without the need for a car.

Pocket parks like this will be included to encourage “neighborly interactions.”

The community also is located within the Marietta City Schools district, which provides a full K-12 International Baccalaureate program. Sports fans also will note the Marietta High School Blue Devils just won the state class 7-A football championship.

With a mix of suburban and urban amenities, does Mangêt offer enough to tantalize potential Atlanta buyers beyond the Perimeter? Roughly eight miles beyond—or 17 miles from Midtown? That remains to be seen.

Here, a glimpse of what’s to come in Mangêt:

Family room with fireplace, couch, coffee table, area rug, and desk with three chairs.
Future homes will include expansive family rooms.
Large kitchen with island, white cabinets and stainless appliances.
Gourmet kitchens include an abundance of counter space.

Owner suites are large with ample space for sitting areas.
