I took these today. I wanted to post some pictures to show you the progress we are making at our home sites in Vinings Heights. This is 3930 Pineview Drive, Smyrna, GA 30080. We are making changes to plans currently and will be breaking ground in the next few weeks on these 1/2 acre home sites. I will post plans as soon as they are completed.
The next house that is in framing is 4007 Pineview which is close to a 3/4 acre lot. The plans are posted on this and we will be under roof by the end of the week I expect. This is currently priced at $850,000.
Then finally we’ve been under contract on 4003 Pineview for a few months and its being customized by the upcoming owner, but I thought I’d show you a few pictures of how that is going as well. We are slated to close the beginning of December on this one. The landscaping is turning out gorgeous!
I have a lot more details to share with you about the new construction I’m working on with the Pradera Group at 4007 Pineview in Vining Heights; I’m really excited about how this project is coming together and had to take some photos of another Pradera home so you can get a better idea of the quality construction and style of the finishes.
In this kitchen, we have a gorgeous maple butcher-block on the island in contrast to the marble countertops, deep farmhouse sink and high-end stainless appliances, semi-custom cabinetry with soft-close doors and drawers.
Bathrooms are stunning – the master has a free-standing soaking tub and frameless shower surround, marble counters, and timeless subway tile.
The finishes throughout the home are homey but elegant with an “urban farmhouse” feel; shiplap panelling in the family room and judges panelling in the dining room as well as generous moulding in every room; cast stone mantel on the fireplaces and well-designed lighting and site-finished hardwood flooring.
There are a too many features to list so make sure you click through here for all the details on the specs for Vinings Heights custom homes .
As I mentioned when I announced this project, there are 4 home sites that we will be developing on Pineview Drive ; the site plan for 4007 Pineview, Vinings Heights is the closest to completion but we still have some great options available for buyers who want to be involved in choosing their options and finishes from the ground up. Take a look at our proposed site plan for Pineview Drive.
Please feel free to get in touch; I would love to show you the progress we have made on this stunning home in an unbeatable location!
I’m excited to announce that I am working with one of Atlantas premier builders, the Pradera Group, to bring new construction to the market in Vinings, Vinings Heights and Smyrna Market Village.
It’s no secret that the Smyrna/ Vinings Heights area is one of Atlanta’s hottest real estate markets. With it’s accessible location, affordable real estate prices, and lower taxes, I wanted to work with builders to bring exceptional semi-custom construction to my clients. That’s why I’m working with the Pradera Group to build wonderful family homes in some of the most up-and-coming neighborhoods just outside of Vinings proper for now and other areas as we see the demand.
Looking to the future, we believe that the extensive new development like Suntrust Park, Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center, the Silver Comet Trail will continue to make this area a very desirable area for families to buy. Pair that with proximity to some of Atlanta’s top rated private schools and Cobb County’s highly rated public school systems and it’s not hard to see why real estate values have risen by 15% in the last year alone (a number were anticipating to continue into the future).
While parts of suburban Atlanta have been known for larger tract developments, Pradera Group is taking a different approach. Smaller scale development means each home is built with attention to detail. We’re doing extensive grading work on each site to take advantage of the entire lot, allowing room for attractive landscaping and the option to build a pool at each home on the large lots. And speaking of pools and hot summers, new energy efficient mechanical systems and insulation are a part of these home’s construction, reducing energy usage, which means lower utility bills in the summer. We anticipate cooling your 3500+ square foot home to cost no more than $300/month during Atlanta’s steamy summer months. The selections are all very custom and current, if you buy early you will have the capability to fully customize the finishes.
We have a home plan selected for our first build at 4007 Pineview Drive, Smyrna, GA 30080. This home will have a master on the main and an add’l bedroom, office or playroom privately situated on the other end of the house. Kitchen is open to the family room and screened porch are all the things clients have been asking me for. Priced at $849,000 with almost 3/4 of an acre you can’t beat it. Looking at most of the homes at this price point you won’t find another one with this large of a lot.
No one wants to have to fight traffic in Atlanta any more than they have to and the area’s shopping and dining options are getting more and more press. Family-friendly entertainment, parks, and a little extra elbow room are all things that I think my clients with children will appreciate along with the lower taxes that my empty nesters and private school families are looking for.
Continue to watch this space as we bring you more details about our collaboration; from insights about new construction and its whys and hows to more information about the Smyrna/Vinings Heights and all it has to offer, we will be updating often, so stay tuned!
After the scorching days we’ve had recently, today is the perfect day to head over to Smyrna’s Taylor-Brawner Park, enjoy the sunshine and have dinner. Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays is exactly what is sounds like – a delicious variety of food trucks parked at Taylor-Brawner every Tuesday between May 7 and September 24. They are open from 5-9pm but it isn’t a bad idea to get there a little early, beat the traffic, and get some playground time in or snag a shady spot for your blanket before you eat. There is even live music!
The band playing this week is The Stoplight Roses, and the food trucks will be:
Visit the Smyrna City page for weekly updates and for more information about getting there and parking. The address is 3180 Atlanta Road, Smyrna, GA 30082. If you live in the area, don’t be surprised to see your neighbors walking or biking over. It’s a great way to get outside, let the kids run on the playground or in the grass, and let someone else cook dinner.
Summer is here and we are all looking for things to do with our children. I ran across this great article – a list of Atlanta’s Top 10 Parks and Playground. Some of these might be old favorites, but it’s always good to learn about new parks when you need to mix up your summer routine.
Run, Swing, Slide: The 10 Best Atlanta Playgrounds
Before summer starts to swelter here in Hotlanta, it is time to take this outside, parents. We scoured the city and rounded up 10 playgrounds that are a breath of fresh air and a guaranteed boredom buster. These parks have something for everyone—even the grown-ups. Consider this your bitty’s bucket list. Enjoy!
While our local Vinings/Smyrna playgrounds didn’t make the list, I’ll add my own recommendations:
Vinings: Cochise Riverview Club (members only): we have our own great playground by the pool.
Smyrna: There is a great playground by St Benedict’s. It is very clean, and young and older kids both enjoy this one.
Smyrna: Just up Atlanta Road is Taylor-Brawner Park. Besides having a great playground, it is also the site for Smyrna Food Truck Tuesdays. Take your kids for the playground and stay for dinner or popsicles.
Buckhead: Beaverbrook Park. It’s very quiet and has a lot of shade for these hot, summer days.
Rainy Days: We’ve all used McDonalds and Chick Fila in a pinch or on a rainy day – can’t beat it.
Are any of these your favorites? If not, where are your go-to playgrounds or parks?
