The Homestead at Ridgewood Heights

Vinings-based Jim Chapman Communities is developing a 12-home enclave just off Moores Mill Road in Buckhead near the newly-developed Westside Village.  When completed, The Homestead at Ridgewood Heights will include elegant, four-bedroom, four and a half bath, two- and three-story single family homes priced from $1.1 million – $1.3 million.  Seven of the homes border woodlands and options include elevators, full basements and three car garages. The 12 homes within the enclave feature unique exteriors of painted brick with stone accents.  The open, modern floor plans were designed by Mary Bairstow, onsite agent and an award-winning designer with years of new home construction experience in Buckhead.  The interiors are customizable and include 10-foot ceilings on the main level and 9-foot ceilings on the second floor, high-end finishes, covered porches and outdoor living spaces with fireplaces.  Because there are no common exterior design elements, each home has its own personality, giving the neighborhood the feel of having grown organically over time. JimChapmanCommunities.com
