Luxury. Location. - Blacksmith Row


More than a century ago, a group of local blacksmiths called this area home.

Blacksmith Row’s understated design, stylish details and enviable location check off the entire list of the “must-haves” demanded by modern homebuyers: luxury, privacy and location.

DISCRIMINATING INDIVIDUALS HAVE ALWAYS required modern amenities and luxury features in their homes; but today are also seeking walkability and ample opportunities for connection. These savvy empty nesters and young professionals insist on modern luxury and privacy, as well as location, location, location.

Miller Lowry Developments is known for its sophisticated attention to detail and placing residential and commercial luxury developments in the hearts of historic downtowns. They set Roswell’s new standard of luxury when they brought us Vickers - apartment residences a few blocks away. Their newest project, Blacksmith Row, is a quaint community of luxury townhomes situated on what could arguably be the best piece of real estate in all of Roswell, tucked right between Canton and Green streets. Phase I is complete and has already sold 50% of its inventory; and now Phase II has begun. New homes priced from the 800s are slated for completion in 2019.

Tom and Diane Duane were downsizing. They had lived in Horseshoe Bend for 27 years, were intent on staying in Roswell, and were searching to purchase a suitable home that also had “walk-ability.” In the last couple of years, Realtors have noted ‘walk-ability’ has become high on the list of priorities for a greater number of buyers. Diane and Tom were thrilled when they stumbled upon Blacksmith Row in historic downtown Roswell. They tell us their favorite things about their home are, “Its ‘walkability,’ as well as the second floor living space - which has a beautiful kitchen, fantastic outdoor living, two fireplaces and great storage.”

Each home in Blacksmith Row engenders refined elegance and understated tones directed by an interior designer with a keen eye for construction details. Approximately 4,000 square feet of hardwood floors span three levels, and multiple decks provide fantastic views of the surrounding shops, restaurants and art galleries. Each home features its own private wine cellar, indoor and outdoor marble fireplaces, and a two-car garage. Kitchenaid Architect Series appliances fit right in the open-concept chef’s kitchen with quartz and marble countertops, carefully chosen light fixtures and top quality custom cabinetry.

Despite being located only a few steps from Canton Street’s activity - it’s remarkable how much privacy the homes offer to buyers. The team at Blacksmith Row can boast when offering all the modern conveniences of city living, while simultaneously demonstrating a ‘retreat-like’ feeling within the walls of each home. Imagine claiming your own coveted “Canton Street” address.

Diane adds, “Living here has exceeded our expectations! The retailers and restauranteurs have been very friendly, namely Monique at Fickle Pickle, Jada and Megan at Spirited, Matthew at Table & Main and Terri at Plum Tree Yoga.
