The latest project by one of intown Atlanta’s more active homebuilders is taking shape in the middle of a leafy Buckhead neighborhood, with starting home prices well north of a million bucks.

Set to eventually consist of 35 standalone houses and duplexes described as “architecturally distinguished,” the first phase of the Delmont project by Hedgewood Homes has completed vertical construction, Compass sales reps tell Urbanize Atlanta.  

Delmont is replacing “obsolete townhome-style condominiums” with a community arranged around a central saltwater pool, plaza, and pool house, according to Chris Ledermeier, a project manager with Compass Development Marketing Group.

The site is tucked a couple of blocks east of Peachtree Road (about a block from The Phoenix on Peachtree condo tower), just south of the Philip Shutze-designed Atlanta International School.

Designed by noted New Urbanism architect Lew Oliver, the project joins other recent Hedgewood builds across Atlanta in places like Lindridge-Martin Manor, Summerhill, and Lake Claire. 

Right now, remaining homes in Delmont’s initial phase are listed between $1.39 and $1.74 million (with interiors ranging from 2,236 to 2,878 square feet, with either three or four bedrooms).

Phase one consists of nine homes expected to be completed throughout this spring and summer, and four of those have sold to date, according to Ledermeier. (Phase one pricing will top out at $1.83 million, and some options will have rooftop terraces and elevators.)

The full community is expected to be finished by the end of 2024, Ledermeier says.
