Stanley Martin Homes at Canopy: Small-town charm meets active lifestyle

by Adrian Fisher



Homebuyers seeking a low-maintenance, active lifestyle will find exactly what they are looking for at Stanley Martin Homes at Canopy. Plus, they will fall in love with the small-town charm and big-city conveniences of Roswell.

Stanley Martin Homes at Canopy offers buyers two- to three-story suburban chic, newly constructed townhomes situated on 7.8 scenic acres. Affordably priced for Fulton County—townhomes start from the upper $400s—the community is less than one mile from historic downtown Roswell, widely known for its chef-driven restaurants, microbreweries and wine bars. “Roswell is a very historic area that has had a huge makeover,” says Lee Danielly, land acquisition manager, Stanley Martin Homes. “It’s a highly active area.” In close proximity to commuter routes, Canopy is also not far from downtown Atlanta, Buckhead, Midtown and Perimeter Mall.

Living the dream 

Canopy’s walkability to fantastic dining, entertainment, parks, nature trails and rivers ripe for water sports make it irresistible to homebuyers who enjoy staying active and socializing. It is actually close enough to Roswell Park and City Hall for residents to walk to all the exciting concerts, events and festivals that take place there throughout the year. The builder’s tagline, “Your Life is Our Blueprint,” is evident throughout this thoughtfully designed new development. Canopy truly has something for all categories of buyers, including top-rated schools for growing families. Children attend Roswell Elementary School, Crabapple Middle School and Roswell High School.

Fabulous amenities 

Overlooking the peaceful Vickery Creek, the residents-only community park has a gathering space, fire pit and water feature, making it the perfect place to socialize or spend quiet time amid nature. Built for furry friends, the neighborhood dog park is big enough for pets to run around and play fetch. But it’s not the only place dogs are made to feel at home. Downtown Roswell welcomes pets to join their owners for a stroll or meal outside.

Historic beauty

The City of Roswell’s Preservation Committee worked in tandem with the builder to ensure the homes’ exteriors fit in with the historic area, says Sherrill Malnofski, neighborhood sales manager, Stanley Martin Homes. “Some are white farmhouse style, and some are a little more urban, more of a brick warehouse look. It’s varied, even within the same building. Each home stands on its own in beauty and style.” Light and airy inside, the spaciousness of the open-concept floorplans and abundance of windows, make each residence feel separate from the rest of the building, regardless of whether it’s an interior or end unit.

What you get for the money

Homes come in two styles, the Woodruff and Allenbrook, and range in size from 2,600 square feet to 3,300 square feet. Each residence features 3 to 4 bedrooms, 2-1/2 to 4-1/2 baths, a two-car garage with room for two more cars on the driveway and plenty of overflow parking on the street.

On the lower level/first floor of the Woodruff, buyers have the option of a game room or bedroom and bathroom. The main level boasts a spacious family room, high-end kitchen and office space. On the upper level, homebuyers have a choice of two layouts with either an owner’s suite and two additional bedrooms or the optional owner’s suite with secondary junior suite. The owner’s suite has a large, walk-in shower with frameless glass door and walk-in closet.

Setting itself apart from the Woodruff, the Allenbrook features a sought-after owner’s suite on the main floor. Also, notable on the main floor is a spacious family room with triple glass doors that slide open to a rear covered deck, large enough for entertaining, that backs to Roswell Mill. “You can see beautiful views of Vickery Creek and people walking the trail,” Malnofski says. The additional bedrooms on the upper level are large enough for king-sized beds and include spacious closets. Adding an extra-special touch to this part of the home is the upper level loft area, perfect for an additional hang out space to watch TV or play games.

Standout features

The stunning view was the tiebreaker for a recent client of Realtor Kelly Finley’s, The Butler/Swayne Team, Berkshire Hathaway Home Services/Georgia Properties. A single professional, she chose a 2,700 square foot Woodruff in Canopy over a property in another walkable area, because it overlooks green spaces, walking trails and Vickery Creek. She was also won over by the balconies on the main level at the front and back of the home, as well as the charming nook that can be used as an office. “The biggest thing is she wanted to be in downtown historical Roswell,” Finley says. “It has become this hot, hot area that almost looks like you’re in the city, but it’s in a really safe, family friendly suburb.”

Pre-sale buyers can customize finishes such as flooring, wall color, cabinets, countertops and tile. Luxurious, high-end quartz countertops, double ovens and five burner cooktops are included in the kitchens. Not surprising, the porches have buyers swooning. “Many elevations of the Woodruff include three decks, at the front, side and rear of the home,” Malnofski says. Sheltered from the elements, these outdoor living spaces are perfect for entertaining in sunny or rainy weather.

A reputable builder

In business for half a century, Stanley Martin Homes is among the top 35 builders in the U.S. Backed by its parent Daiwa House Group, an $85 billion privately held company in Japan, the builder continues to grow. “We are very bullish on Atlanta,” Danielly says. “This market is a big part of Stanley Martin’s growth plan.”

Stanley Martin Homes broke ground at Canopy late last summer. Upon completion, estimated to be in summer or fall of 2021, the development will have 50 townhomes. “Our sales have proven that it’s a win,” Malnofski says. “We had nine sales before we even got into the model.”
