Despite the popular saying, you can have your cake and eat it, too! Especially if your “cake” is a sustainable Atlanta conservation community with convenient intown access. Located in Atlanta’s Briarcliff Woods neighborhood near Decatur, Pendergrast Farm features 20 luxury homes, including two that are move-in ready now, in a 9-acre community that includes a 1-acre organic, working farm, 5.5 acres of conservation area, planned amenities and so much more.
This week, we’re featuring one of our available homes:
2164 James Alley
Located on home site 3, this 3,000-square-foot home includes five bedrooms and four bathrooms, available now for $1.275 million. Featuring three incredible stories of living space, this home faces the community’s gardens and includes a front-entry garage on the terrace level.
The homeowner entry on the terrace level includes a mudroom space with built-in cubbies for storing daily necessities like purses, backpacks, boots and more. This floor also includes a large recreation room that can be used a variety of ways, from a home office to hobby space. It also includes a bedroom and full bathroom, as well as a rear deck.
Moving to the main level, you’ll be greeted by an open living space that seamlessly combines a large kitchen, dining room and the fireside family room. Natural light floods in through an abundance of windows, offering breathtaking views of the heavily forested backyard. Also located off the rear of this floor is a spacious screened porch that allows you to enjoy the outdoors and nature views year-round.
The kitchen boasts a spacious island with seating for four, a JennAir appliance package and a walk-in pantry. The aesthetic here is striking, with beautiful black painted cabinets adorned with gold hardware and a contrasting-colored island. The 10-foot ceilings on this level give the space an airy and open feel, and white oak site-finished hardwood floors run throughout, adding an elegant touch.
The main floor isn’t just about the living areas; it also features a guest bedroom with a walk-in closet and a full bathroom. This bathroom stands out with its fun floor tile, a shiplap feature wall and a tiled shower, making it a space full of character.
Upstairs, you’ll find the primary bedroom, a true retreat with its beamed, vaulted ceiling. The ensuite bath is a dream, offering dual vanities, a soaking tub, beautiful shower with double heads and bench seating, and a private water closet. The grey hexagonal floor tile and white vanity with black hardware create a chic and modern feel, while the walk-in closet with custom shelving adds to the functionality and style of the primary suite.
The upper level also includes a large laundry room and two additional bedrooms, each with its own walk-in closet, and they share a well-appointed bathroom.
This home is not just about aesthetics; it’s designed for modern living. It’s wired for an EV charging station and incorporates several energy-efficient features, including spray foam insulation, fresh air intake, a sealed building envelope, house wrap and it’s solar panel ready.
In addition to two move-in ready homes, home sites 4, 5 and 11 are also under construction and nearing completion!
Atlanta Conservation Community
The homes aren’t the only thing that makes Pendergrast Farm unique. Its focus on sustainable living while providing intown access is truly one-of-a-kind! Tucked away off Briarcliff Road, Pendergrast Farm has a wooded conservation space, ensuring that the 5.5 acres of woodlands will never be built on, remaining a serene enclave with nature trails for generations to come.
In the center of the community, a 1-acre organic farm and gardens are managed by a full-time farmer who lives on site. Homeowners can enjoy the seasonal harvests on a subscription basis, which can then be delivered to their door.
Common Spaces for Gathering
The community also includes multiple amenities that focus on gathering and relaxation. The Common House will have a shared demonstration kitchen and dining area for shared meals, cooking classes, wine tastings, canning sessions and more. It’ll also host holiday events, community gatherings and more. The bottom floor of the house includes the Maker’s Space with areas for crafts and hobbies, including a woodworking shop and area for painting. Upstairs, the Common House has a two-bedroom guest suite that homeowners can reserve for overflow guest housing.
A serene saltwater pool is located behind the Common House, providing the perfect space for enjoying the warm summer months, while a green space is ideal for gathering.
The pool and Common House are under development and expected to open in 2024.
