The subdivision, situated off Highway 211 at the end of the West Winder Bypass, is slated for 173 single-family homes. The 74-acre tract, which had been part of a family estate since the 1800s, was annexed by Winder in May.
“The city of Winder supported the rezoning, and we are excited to bring 173 lots for single-family homes to the market,” Blue River managing principal Brad Cooper said in a news release. “Finished product costs are projected to be in the low $400,000s, and Royal Estates will offer exceptional built and natural amenities.”
These include a swimming pool, clubhouse, tennis courts, volleyball court, parcourse, playground and community lawn. The subdivision will also have 24 acres of green space, including a primary conservation area along Cedar Creek on the northern border. A walking trail will connect Royal Estates to the city’s master-planned Cedar Creek Trail, adding about 2,800 linear feet.
Homes in the community, which is zoned for Winder-Barrow High School, will range from 1,650 to 2,200 square feet.
