For the third consecutive summer in the Atlanta real estate market, demand for housing still greatly outweighs available inventory, even as interest rates continue to rise. Homebuilders across the country ramped up their new home construction efforts to make up for the lack of existing homes and catch up with the ever-increasing demand. This preempted the highest share of new construction single-family homes on record, accounting for over one-third (34.1%) of U.S. homes for sale in December 2021.
The benefit of all the new home construction happening in the city is that newly built homes like this charming, traditional farmhouse in Atlanta are now becoming available to the Atlanta housing market.
Located in Chamblee, this custom-built home is a notable example of what homebuyers in today’s market are searching for; gorgeous curb appeal, plenty of space, and completely move-in ready. Beyond that, the home’s open floor plan, 10’ lofty ceilings, and transom windows fill the home with natural light, an everyday luxury for homeowners who are working remotely and spending more time indoors.
Past the shiplap accented dining room and serving bar is the fully equipped chef’s kitchen with a huge center island, new stainless-steel appliances, spacious breakfast bar, and large walk-in pantry which are highly desirable features of today’s post-pandemic buyer.
The beamed great room leads to a screened porch with a fireplace and out to the expansive, private backyard which provides an excellent atmosphere for at-home entertaining. Along with 5 bedrooms, a 3-car garage, an oversized Owner’s Suite, and all the amenities today’s luxury homes are known to have, this newly built farmhouse truly sets itself apart from many new homes on the Atlanta housing market. Listed by Robin Blass with Harry Norman, REALTORS®, this home is located at 3666 Fortingale Road, Atlanta, GA 30341.
