An active intown and suburban Atlanta homebuilder has set its sights on the North Georgia Mountains for a housing type that’s more urban density than wilderness escape.

Construction is underway on a 51-unit townhome project called The Grove at Blue Ridge, situated just north of the town of the same name off Ga. Highway 515. A cove of scenic Lake Blue Ridge is located nearby to the east.

The homebuilder, Deluxeton Homes, is also developing the next phase of The Moderns on Memorial Drive and the Hollywood and Main II duplex community in Riverside, with several suburban Atlanta projects in its portfolio from Marietta to Alpharetta.

Deluxeton Homes officials reported that site work on the Blue Ridge project was nearly finished in February. The community’s website says the initial offerings will be finished in 2023.

It marks the only new townhome project underway in the Blue Ridge area at the moment—and the only townhomes for sale in general, outside a waterfront unit asking $750,000 on the aforementioned lake.

The Grove at Blue Ridge’s townhomes will all be two stories, situated around an oval-shaped interior street.

Prices start at $365,000 for options with three bedrooms and two and ½ bathrooms in 2,054 square feet.

Slightly larger units (2,209 square feet) are asking $370,000.

Larger options (four bedrooms with just north of 2,750 square feet) are listed on the project’s website but aren’t yet priced.

According to marketing materials, the community is taking shape 90 miles from Atlanta near the confluence of Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina, close to three craft breweries and Blue Ridge’s growing variety of eats and shopping.

“[It’s] a perfect getaway destination for city dwellers and a popular choice for homebuyers looking for second homes or vacation homes,” notes Deluxeton Homes’ sale pitch.
