Luxury Home Builders Philip Clark announced yesterday, August 18th, that they are now offering six homes for sale in a Druid Hills enclave known as Frederick Trust. The property features a historic mansion as well as four newly built homes nestled in the canopy of the Olmstead Linear Park along South Ponce de Leon Avenue. The six properties will share a lush garden lined with footpaths as part of a condominium association that will also maintain each property’s exterior and lawns, creating a maintenance free, luxury community.
The homes will start at $1,500,000 for a newly built, stand alone structure. The newly built homes will feature four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms in 3,400 SF of interior space. The two attached mansion units will feature sweeping staircases, stained glass windows, grand chandeliers, and other historic, unique touches that reflect the property’s legacy.
The property is located between Ponce de Leon Avenue and Clifton Terrace NE, a few blocks west of Clifton Road NE. It is steps from Shady Side Park, which is a narrow portion of the Historic Olmsted Linear Park which extends along South Ponce De Leon from Briarcliff Road NE to just before Artwood Road NE. It is within walking distance to Drud Hills Golf Club, Fernbank Museum, Candler Park, and the Freedom Park Trail which connects to the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail.
Philip Clark, the founder of Philip Clark Custom Builders, said that “preserving the cultural and architectural history of not just this home but the historic property and neighborhood was our goal.” He went on to say that “the integrity of the mansion was maintained through an accurate and respectful restoration, ensuring its beauty, grandiosity and dignity for generations to come.” Since 1976, the builders have built more than 500 homes in the Atlanta area, averaging $1,500,000 to $3,000,000, according to their website.
The adjacent linear park and the property share Frederick Law Olmsted as a namesake, the famous 19th century landscape architect who designed many of the United State’s most beloved public spaces, including Central Park, Prospect Park, and the United States Capitol Grounds. Druid Hills and the adjacent linear park was one of his final commissions before his death in 1903.
The properties are being marketed by Compass Development Marketing Group, who are hosting a Garden Party on Tuesday, August 24th from 1- 4PM for perspective buyers.
