A new option for relatively affordable, single-family housing is taking shape south of the city.
At Preston Hills, not far from Lakewood, construction is underway on 78 single-family homes in a community geared at “solving the current issues of homeownership, neighborhood revitalization, intown affordability, and the low housing supply that plagues the City of Atlanta,” as stated in the project’s marketing materials.
Each home will feature one of seven available floorplans inspired by William Gibbons Preston, builder of America’s first bungalow on Cape Cod, Mass. Although these structures may share some of the same features—natural materials, artistry, and innovative touches—they certainly will expand on this architectural style.
The floorplans range from 1,868 square feet to 2,367 square feet, with pricing starting at $250,000 and reaching $275,000.
Home features will include HardiPlank cement siding, a two-car garage, hardwood floors, granite countertops, and such smart home technology as a Nest thermostat and Ring doorbell system.
Real estate developer CityScape is bringing the community to life, while The Barsky Group is marketing the project. With construction in full swing, the complete build-out is expected by late fall. Several home sites are currently for sale, with more to follow.
