Mention “Brookhaven,” and the first thing that comes to mind probably isn’t space-conscious dwellings for urbanites who covet 10-minute walkability to MARTA trains.
But that’s one facet of national homebuilder Ashton Woods’s latest metro Atlanta venture, Halstead, which is finishing an initial phase along Druid Hills Road on the site of a former Boys & Girls Club sports complex.
Ashton Woods reps tell Curbed Atlanta they expect to welcome their first homeowners in May at Halstead, which is blending large single-family homes, townhouses, and five-unit loft buildings, all with a very traditional aesthetic.
It’s located about a half-mile from MARTA’s Brookhaven-Oglethorpe Station.
The breakdown of 59 residences will be townhouse-heavy (41 of them total), with 10 lofts—aka, “manors”—and eight big houses.
The townhomes are expected to come online first.
Marketing materials promote the community’s proximity to everything from Perimeter Mall to MARTA and Interstate 85.
Private green spaces are planned within the gated community, while Fernwood and Briarwood parks are located in walking distance, per project reps.
As for pricing, expect the standalone houses (from 3,257 square feet) to start in the high $800,000s, while townhomes (from 2,285 square feet) begin in the high $500,000s.
Pricing for the lofts, meanwhile, hasn’t been determined. Expect footprints beginning at just 970 square feet and what’s described as “one-of-a-kind architecture.”
The project overall, as Ashton Woods Atlanta vice president of sales and marketing Patti Dunn put it in an announcement, will “allow homeowners to have a true neighborhood lifestyle in one of the most sought-after and dynamic areas in the city.”
