New homes and green space at Pendergrast Farm

Healthy House of Georgia announces Pendergrast Farm, a unique conservation community located near Emory University in Decatur. Setting a new standard for sustainable living within Atlanta’s Perimeter, Pendergrast Farm combines nature preservation, energy-efficient homes, a working farm and urban convenience.

“This a passion project for me,” said Dennis McConnell, President of Healthy House of Georgia. “I came out of retirement to build this one-of-a-kind conservation community that seamlessly blends the beauty of nature with the convenience of city living.”

Pendergrast Farm offers 20 energy-efficient, healthy homes priced from $1.2 million.

“All of the homes are solar-panel ready and wired for EV charging stations,” continues McConnell. “The model home has a HERS rating of 50, which means that it uses 50% less energy than a comparable new home built to current building codes and 80% less than the average resale home of the same size.”

Designed to focus on the natural environment, 70% of the community has been preserved, including 5.5 acres of woods and a 1-acre organic working farm run by a professional, full-time farmer, who will live on site. In addition to growing fruits, vegetables and flowers, the farmer will lead educational walks and host activities for kids of all ages.

In addition, Pendergrast Farm features thoughtfully designed community spaces, including a central green, saltwater swimming pool and a Common House. The Common House will host culinary events, wine tastings, meetings and gatherings of all kinds including exercise classes and book clubs. It also features guest quarters that homeowners can reserve for visiting family and friends. The lower level is the Maker’s Space with room for arts, crafts and hobbies such as pottery or woodworking. Community recreation areas, including woodlands with a stream and extensive walking trails, promote wellness through an active and connected lifestyle.
