Peachtree Hills Place Named Finalist for NAHB’s Best of 50+ Housing Awards

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) recently named the clubhouse at Peachtree Hills Place as a finalist in the 2008 Best of 50+ Housing Awards competition. Peachtree Hills Place, a luxurious residential community for adults 55 and older, is one of three finalists in the ‘Active Adult Housing: Clubhouse Interior Design “On the Boards” Large’ category. The Best of 50+ Housing Awards recognizes excellence in design and marketing in the 50+ housing market. Finalists were chosen by a jury of 12 industry experts who spent two days evaluating close to 300 entries. Winners will be announced during NAHB's Boomers and Beyond Conference next month in New Orleans.

“It is quite an honor to be recognized for our work by experts in this industry from across the nation ,” said Bill Foley of Foley Design, clubhouse designer. “The finalists represent a group of the best in 50+ housing throughout the United States, and we are very proud to be a part of that group.”

The clubhouse at Peachtree Hills Place is designed in the English Arts and Crafts style to create a sense of permanence, familiarity and security and although new, the atmosphere is one of history and tradition. The clubhouse is comprised of two levels of community activities, services, and support functions, and three levels of residential apartments. The clubhouse includes elegant ballrooms, community meeting space, a chapel, spa, member conference room and billiard and poker rooms.

The clubhouse also houses the four primary dining rooms for the community. Two of the dining rooms feature vaulted ceilings and cast stone, while the other two feature beam-and-coffered ceilings, and intimate dining nooks that create a cozy atmosphere. All four dining rooms have been designed with beautiful stone fireplaces.

“For the clubhouse to be ranked among the best in the nation is very exciting for Peachtree Hills Place,” said E. Andrew (Andy) Isakson, founder of Isakson-Barnhart Properties, Inc., and Managing Partner of Isakson-Barnhart Co., LLC, developer of Peachtree Hills Place. “We are very appreciative to Foley Design for all of their hard work and dedication.”

When completed, Peachtree Hills Place, located in Buckhead in the heart of metro Atlanta, will include 274 independent residences – consisting of 266 villas and eight single-family homes – and 36 skilled nursing and memory care suites. Assisted living care will also be offered on site. All Peachtree Hills Place members will enjoy a full slate of amenities, on-site retail establishments, dining, full service spa, and fitness center.

Isakson Barnhart is Georgia’s developer of nationally recognized, award-winning residential communities for those age 55 and over. The company’s vision to provide amenity-rich, independent living for discerning adults was born out of the personal experiences of the family of Ed and Julia Isakson after their difficult search for a community that would provide an active lifestyle combined with on-site health care. This mission manifested itself in Park Springs, the company’s flagship property in Stone Mountain. Park Springs was nationally recognized by the 50+ Housing Council of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) as the recipient of the 2005 Platinum Award for best large CCRC as well as the Gold Award for interior design. Now, Isakson Barnhart introduces another award-winning residential community in Peachtree Hills Place, named the best “On the Boards” large CCRC by the same group in 2006. Isakson Barnhart has carefully selected Life Care Services, LLC, the leading management company of senior communities in the nation, to partner in the planning and management of Peachtree Hills Place and Park Springs.
