Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates GMD Design Group of Georgia for winning a Gold OBIE in the Single Family Builder – Detached $700,000 to $799,999 (Builds 100+ Homes/Year) category for Oglethorpe. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards given in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

Oglethorpe, Peachtree’s newest neighborhood represents the latest thinking in both community design and architecture for this infill location. The 5.1-acre site is master planned with 19 detached single-family residential homes, and six will be basement homesites. The Manor Homes, Village Homes and Garden Homes are meticulously designed with architectural details. The homes range in square footage from 3,000 to 4,000 square feet.

Many of the homes feature front- or rear-entry, three-car garages to accommodate the upscale buyer. The Garden Homes are designed with a rear motor court vehicular access and private garden courtyards for each home. There is an emphasis on pedestrian scale at Oglethorpe, which is illustrated by an interlinking sidewalk system throughout the neighborhood. The walkable design includes varied home elevations, colors, porches, balconies, fountains, trellises and specimen trees. Convenient off-street parking is spread throughout the community in addition to private garden settings for the individual homes. Oglethorpe boasts a green belt along its frontage with Spalding Terrace Road and the gated entrance, adding to the exclusivity of the neighborhood.
