Home » Common House Construction Underway at Pendergrast Farm

Healthy House of Georgia has begun construction of the amenities at Pendergrast Farm, an innovative conservation neighborhood close to Emory University in Decatur. This development represents a pioneering approach to eco-friendly living inside Atlanta’s Perimeter, blending conservation of nature, high-efficiency housing, an operational farm and city conveniences.

Dennis McConnell, the President of Healthy House of Georgia, expressed enthusiasm about starting construction on the Common House, the main amenity at Pendergrast Farm. “The community’s central park will be the venue for outdoor activities and socializing, complemented by a saltwater pool to cool off during hot summer days.”

The community’s carefully crafted communal areas offer residents a central locale for engagement. The Common House features amenities such as a kitchen and dining space for food events, wine tastings, cooking workshops, reading groups and more. Its basement includes a Maker’s Space equipped with woodworking and craft areas, plus rooms for various classes, hobbies, and presentations. The facility also offers guest accommodations that residents can book for visitors.

Beyond social spots, the development is rich in forests and trails that encourage a lifestyle of health and connectivity. The grounds feature a winding stream, over five acres of forest, and a one-acre organic farm managed by a dedicated farmer, emphasizing conservation and environmental guardianship by preserving 70% of the land.

Pendergrast Farm is marketing 20 high-efficiency, eco-friendly homes starting at $1.2 million, all prepared for solar panels and equipped with EV charging. There are two homes ready for occupancy, with additional options for custom builds.

Pendergrast Farm aims to cultivate a tight-knit community ethos through its commitment to sustainable building and giving residents a taste of urban life. Located on Briarcliff Road, the location offers easy access to exceptional dining, entertainment, cultural venues, I-85, and downtown Decatur.

Potential homeowners are invited to explore the model home at 2172 James Alley, open on weekends from 2-5 p.m., or to arrange a private viewing by calling 404-370-0800.
