Leading the way in the revitalization of historic Kirkwood, The Plinth Group is pleased to announce that homes are now for sale at Kirkwood Station, a lively mix of CityHomes homes priced from the high $200,000s to the low $400,000s, with a restaurant and retail/boutique studios, located at the corner of Howard Street and Hosea L. Williams Blvd. Guests are now invited to tour the community and visit the fully decorated model home, which offers a glimpse into the many possibilities at the community.
Located in the historically charming area of Intown Atlanta known as Kirkwood, where streetcars once buzzed providing express service to and from Atlanta three times daily, Kirkwood Station is located just minutes from downtown. Today, the streets are busy with bikes, mopeds, automobiles and MARTA trains as the area enjoys a resurgence in popularity.
“In the 1940s, Kirkwood was a popular part of town – filled with history and known as a great gathering place,” said John Little, President of the Plinth Group, the developer of Kirkwood Station. “Through time, things changed, and our vision was to re-establish the area as an energetic place to live, work and play. At Kirkwood Station, we want to set the standard for this innovative, historic neighborhood by attracting a mix of spirited people: artists, entrepreneurs and professionals – individually distinctive yet cohesive as a community.”
Respecting the historical homes in the area, The Plinth Group utilized stone, brick and architectural detailing at Kirkwood Station to blend in well with the existing neighborhood. Warmly lighted walkways and mature trees will line the cobblestone “Main Street” at the community. Twenty-three townhomes are available, and homeowners can choose from nine different floorplans, all of which feature two-stories of living space and rear drive-under garages.
Five of the homes, all of which line Howard Street, are live/work units. Incorporating a store front office, the homes include a working space, entry and bathroom on the garage level.
New home shoppers are welcome to visit the fully decorated model home at Kirkwood Station. Featuring the Baltimore live/work floorplan, the unit is now open. Designed to reflect timeless architecture while also incorporating the latest in new home design, the model offers three floors of living and working space. The first floor, located on street level, has a two-car rear entry garage and store-front windows with entrance in to the home. With a large room, located behind the garage, the lower level is perfect for a small business or to use as a third bedroom. Upstairs, the home’s open floorplan features a living room with dining area, open kitchen with breakfast room and a powder room. Located on the third floor of the home is the master bedroom with bath suite, and guest bedroom, which also includes a full bath and large closet, and a laundry area.
Ranging in size from 1,654 to 2,100 square feet, the townhomes at Kirkwood Station offer many of today’s amenities, as well as the charm of historic homes. Designer kitchens overlooking the living areas will feature granite countertops, spacious cabinets, stainless steel appliance packages and breakfast rooms. The luxurious living and dining areas offer nine foot ceilings, hardwood floors and crown molding throughout. The master bedrooms offer double or walk-in closets with ample space, separate his and her vanities in the bathrooms and over-sized tubs and separate showers with ceramic tile.
All of the homes have a large guest bedroom, with a full bath and large closet. Most plans include a “Flex” space, which homeowners can utilize as a home office, study, media room or casual sitting area.
“At The Plinth Group, our focus is to develop small intimate communities, where we can meet with each individual homeowner,” continued Little. “Our vision is for each unit to be personalized by its buyers. While we include an impressive list of standard features for each home, we also encourage personalization. We want the homes to be theirs and not just another model or floorplan that we designed. Another benefit, homeowners will have the opportunity to work with Kirkwood Station’s interior designer to guide them through the selection process to create a home that personalizes their sense of style.”
In addition to the homes, eight commercial spaces are available at Kirkwood Station, including a craftsman and period style furniture company, Mission Motiff; an accessories/floral shop, Gitche-Ya-Ya; Jasmine Spa; and Atlanta Intown Realty and others. There will also be a restaurant with a fountain and outdoor seating area.
Kirkwood Station provides a lively urban atmosphere just minutes from downtown, Edgewood Retail Center, East Atlanta Village, Little Five Points, Inman Park, East Lake, Decatur and Virginia Highlands. The community is also located near Freedom Park, Candler Park and Bessie Branham Park, which was recently renovated with tennis and basketball courts, a ball field and playground, as well as a $2 million recreation center with gym, workout equipment and a state-of-the-art computer center, The Path, a regional network of greenway trails for walking and biking, is located near Kirkwood Station, crossing Hosea Williams Drive.
“Kirkwood is becoming a walkable community once again,” continued Little. “It’s so nice to see people jogging, families walking their dogs, and mothers pushing strollers around the community. In the last year, the area has come a long way and we hope to help it continue its progress.”
