Congratulations to The Providence Group on the incredible win of Detached Community of the Year for Idylwilde at the 42nd Annual OBIE Awards event! Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council (SMC) on behalf of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association (HBA), the awards acknowledges the leaders in Atlanta’s new home construction industry.

Nestled in the sought-after Hickory Flat community, Idylwilde is a refreshing take on timeless neighborhood living. At its heart, acres of natural green space intersect streams, ponds, and miles of groomed walking trails and sidewalks. There is also a small lake on the property for fishing.

This stunning community’s aesthetics and curb appeal start with the gated entrance, designed to mimic the ruins of an old homestead that once sat on the site. Once you are through the gates, the architecture will remind you of a classic southern town inspired by the modern farmhouse, bungalow, neo-classic, and prairie-style vernaculars. Every detail was meticulously planned, right down to the color of each door. The result of that planning makes Idylwilde one of the most beautiful new construction communities in the market today.

While not age-restricted, Idylwilde offers ranch and two-story home designs with owner’s suites on the main level. Various plan designs are available. Arden Collection homes feature rear entry garages and open-concept designs with unique, private side courtyards for outdoor living. The award-winning Carriage Collection homes feature front entry plans with options for sunrooms and sitting rooms to be added. The Homestead Collection Homes offer both two and three-car garages. The perimeter homesites allow for basements and overlook a beautiful natural area with streams, creeks, and wetlands.

The HOA maintains all lawns and common areas, allowing residents time to enjoy the spectacular amenity, including a sizeable farmhouse-inspired clubhouse, community pool with a fire pit, community gardens and two pickle-ball courts. The elevated lifestyle, quality execution and stunning streetscapes in Idylwilde have allowed us to achieve premium pricing in the highly competitive Cherokee market.
