Large Lots, Castle-style Homes Bring A Touch of France to Conyers at Avignon

Thirty luxury homes on lots averaging three-quarters of an acre will create a taste of France in Conyers at the newest community of homes built by custom home builder Classic Smith Neighborhoods. Avignon will feature six brand new floor plans based on homes created by builder Mark Smith at Underwood Crossing, which features homes built on the theme of European castles.

These brand new plans were designed with comfort and convenience in mind. Today's buyer is looking for a home with a good flow, Mark Smith, president and founder of Classic Smith Neighborhoods, which has also built Greyfield and Underwood Crossing. Our homes are an excellent value; we use high-quality materials and offer low maintenance and long-term appeal for the homes we build, both inside and out.

The name Avignon comes from the European Castle Collection of homes Smith originally designed for Underwood Crossing. All the homes in Avignon are from the French Collection, creating a full community of stylish European homes.

"We're making special introductory offers for buyers, " Smith said. "In a slow market like this one, we have continued to provide value for the dollar; that's why we're still building. The custom home market has remained consistent, and we are able to meet that demand. With interest rates continuing to remain low, it truly is an excellent time to buy a new home."

The six new plans feature different elevations with the heavy stucco accents classic to European styling. All brick exteriors offer insulation and very low maintenance. Stucco and stone accent the castle-like elevations, and custom finishes are available on all of the homes.

Inside, bull-nosed (rounded) corners and knock-down ceilings add texture and depth; architectural details such as tall ceilings, arches, columns and two-story rooms add to the elegance of the plans. Full basements include rooms that can be finished as home theaters, family rooms, hobby/office space and full baths. All of the plans feature a guest suite with a full bath on the main level.

"There seems to be more demand than ever for homes that offer space for entertainment and guests," Smith said. "The terrace level is perfect for the flexible space of a home theater and extra living area."
