Gwinnett’s youngest city is going to feel like home to more residents after two new housing developments debuted at a ribbon cutting ceremony last week. Town leaders joined officials from Peachtree Residential Properties to formally open a townhome community, Duke Reserve, and a single-family housing development known as Oglethorpe.
“When we developed the city’s comprehensive plan, a housing option that offers smaller lots without sacrificing square footage was in short supply,” Mayor Mike Mason said in a statement. “These two new developments will help fill that need. We are happy to welcome Peachtree Residential Properties to Peachtree Corners.”
The developments will provide 44 new units to Peachtree Corners’ housing stock, with Oglethorpe adding 19 homes and Duke Reserve contributing 25 two-story townhomes.
Officials said both developments are located on Spalding Drive, with Oglethorpe being across the street from the Wesleyan School and Duke Reserve being across from the Peachtree Corners Post Office. The gated communities offer full landscape maintenance in an effort to appeal to residents who are looking for a “lock and leave” lifestyle, city officials said.
Oglethorpe’s homes will start in the $700,000s, with some of them offering basements and three-car garages. Homes listed on Peachtree Residential Properties’ website featured french countryside exterior motifs, along with four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms on the inside.
Meanwhile, Duke Reserve’s prices will start in the mid-$500,000s, and offer two-car garages and master bedrooms on the main floor. Several townhomes featured on Peachtree Residential Properties’ website ranged from three or four bedrooms, and from two-and-a-half to four-and-a-half bathrooms.
City officials said residents can find out additional information about both developments by visiting www.peachtreeresidential.com or by calling 770-622-2522.
