In recent years, Atlanta’s so-called “Upper Westside” has seen accelerated development of retail, commercial office space, and housing heavy on townhomes and apartments, but a new single-family enclave is aiming to raise the bar with prices that reflect the Buckhead location.

Called “The Homestead at Ridgewood Heights,” the 12-home venture is under construction along Moores Mill Road, between Interstate 75 and the area’s long-stalled, Publix-anchored shopping center.

Flaunting options that include elevators, three-car garages, and full basements, the four-bedroom offerings described as “elegant” will range between $1.1 and $1.3 million.

It’s believed to be the only new housing development at those prices in Buckhead’s coveted Morris Brandon school district, with private options including Lovett, Westminster, and Pace Academy schools nearby, according to developer Jim Chapman, president of Jim Chapman Communities.

That selling point, and the community’s private road without through-traffic, have attracted strong interest from young families, Chapman said.

Seven of the home sites border woodlands, and no exterior designs will be repeated, developers noted. HOA fees cover mowing, seasonal plantings, and other yard work.

Four houses have been constructed, and nine homes overall remain unsold.
