This week we thought we would highlight Wakefield Estates. A wonderful community right off of South Atlanta Rd, just south of the Paces Ferry intersection. Wakefield Estates first broke ground in Smyrna in 2006 (yes, during the boom!). Wilmont Williams was the builder and the new construction homes were starting in the mid $600k’s. They had a craftsman style flair with all the upgrades and amenities the current buyer wanted! Wilmont Williams was selling rapidly at first, being one of the only new construction neighborhoods that offered a swimming pool, buyers couldn’t get there fast enough.
Of course, the craftsman style, new construction, and swimming pool could only go so far once the housing bust occurred. Out went Wilmont Williams and in came Traton Homes! One of the few big name builders that was surviving during the “hard times.” Traton Homes had/has a great model, which is to provide a new construction product that has everything the buyer wants at a price they can’t pass up. I think Traton Homes was in Wakefield Estates for only 30 days before they sold everything out!
Fast-forward to the present and Wakefield Estates is still one of the most sought after communities in Smyrna. The craftsman style is still very popular AND truth be told, Wakefield Estates is still one of the few subdivisions to boast a swimming pool in Smyrna! Prices had dropped into the $300k’s at one point; however, the average is probably the mid $400k’s now and rising everyday.
Heritage at Vinings is one of the most sought after neighborhoods in the Teasley School District. Plenty of new families moving into the Smyrna Vinings area always inquire about Heritage at Vinings. Possibly because it is one of the few swim / tennis neighborhoods that feed into the Teasley school district. Or possibly because it was built by the renowned John Wieland builders or maybe its just because at any given time you can find over 20 children playing in the streets of this neighborhood or in the neighborhood pool. Heritage at Vinings brings you back to a simpler time when neighbors were friends and children played outside all day long!
John Wieland started building Heritage at Vinings in 1999. The neighborhood boasts traditional style homes on ¼- ½ acre lots. The homes consist of three to five bedrooms on a slab or full basement. The homes sales got as high the mid $500k’s during the peak real estate boom. However, have no fear – these homes come on and off the market quickly. This is possibly because Teasley elementary school is one of the top schools in the Smyrna Vinings area or potentially because its one of the few swim / tennis communities. Whatever the reason, families moving to Smyrna Vinings always seem to know about Heritage at Vinings before we even mention it!
Although Heritage at Vinings can’t boast being a new construction neighborhood, the swim / tennis amenities put it far above the rest! Not to mention you are walking distance to the fabulous Taylor Brawner Park, home to the Smyrna Vinings Food Trucks and summer movies!
