With the introduction of two new plans at Vineyard Gate, Richport Properties, a 30+ year veteran Atlanta home builder, believes that it is offering the most affordable, single-family detached new homes built by a Certified Professional Home Builder (CPHB) in the north metro Atlanta area. On May 23, 2008 we conducted a search of detached homes listed with First Multiple Listing Service** that are new or under construction and built by a CPHB. The area searched included Jackson, Cobb, Cherokee, North Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Forsyth, Hall and Barrow Counties. The only listings we found were the two new models under construction by Richport Properties in Vineyard Gate.
The new Newberry and Columbia plans offer 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and are offered for $129,900 and $127,900 respectively, ideal for the first-time Atlanta home buyer. TheNewberry is a traditional ranch plan. The Columbia is a cottage-style ranch home with rear garage. Vineyard Gate is conveniently located just off Interstate 85 in the Town of Braselton. Phone calls to Atlanta are local and Vineyard Gate is minutes from Gwinnett Mall, Mall of Georgia, Gainesville and other places of employment.
Bill Boyajan, Chief Operating Officer or Richport Properties believes Vineyard Gate offers a great opportunity for first time home buyers. “The current market for real estate provides renters an outstanding opportunity to become home owners,” says Boyajan. “With values like this and interest rates near an all-time low we look forward to welcoming new home owners at Vineyard Gate – an affordable and green community!”
Vineyard Gate was the first conservation community in Braselton and features innovative storm water management that disturbs less natural area than typical subdivisions. As a result 30% of the site is left “green” including walking trails, pocket parks and preserved woods. The homes feature Hardi-plank siding, traditional detailing, patios and spacious floorplans. Homeowners enjoy a low-maintenance lifestyle with lawn maintenance and trash service included in their HOA fees.
** We performed an additional search in AtlantaNewHomesDirectory.com (Vineyard Gate was the only community offering homes from the $120’s) and in Georgia MLS (no homes were found below $130,000 built by a Certified Professional Home Builder).
