For more than three decades, Benchmark Homes has established craftsmanship, quality and superior design standards as the cornerstone of their company. From careful neighborhood planning and vision to timeless architectural design, detailed quality construction and selection of premier locations, Benchmark has consistently surpassed all competition in the metro Atlanta area.

When Benchmark Homes was founded in 1971 by Larry and Elizabeth Boggs, it was grounded in traditional family values with the simple goal of constructing the highest quality homes and neighborhoods while building strong, lasting relationships with customers. Those same values and sound business practices continue today through the family-run business.

The Benchmark team of developers, builders and sales representatives are all hands-on and work closely with customers to integrate the home buying process, delivering a product and a lifestyle that lead to strong customer satisfaction.

The difference in a Benchmark neighborhood is clearly evident as soon as you drive into one of their communities. From each neighborhood's inception, careful planning ensures the homes, streetscapes, greenspace and common areas all complement one another while providing for a pedestrian-friendly lifestyle with plenty of preserved areas with trees and parks. The unique elements of the community are enhanced and brought to light in the architecture. Attention to detail from the Benchmark team includes selecting and situating each home so its curb appeal and privacy, along with that of the entire neighborhood, are optimized.

Benchmark Homes has been the leader in offering standard features that, in many cases, are beyond what customers expect, providing immediate and unequalled value to home owners. In many of the homes, these features include open, spacious floorplans; hardwood floors; granite countertops; keeping rooms; multiple fireplaces; structured wiring; and heavy custom trim. Vaulted, beamed and coffered ceilings, arches, hardwood floors and columns are all features of Benchmark's homes.

With floorplans that fit today's lifestyles and individual preferences, Benchmark ensures lasting value for its home buyers. Homes by Benchmark feature quality construction backed by an extended, transferable 10 year structural warranty
for new homes, giving owners peace of mind about their investment.

As a leader in the Atlanta building industry for more than 35 years, Benchmark is committed to customer satisfaction through prompt, courteous service. Home buying, for most, is the single largest investment they will ever make. Benchmark believes it is the builder's responsibility to deliver the best possible experience for all involved, not only during construction, but after move-in as well. Customers enjoy the confidence, comfort and assurance offered by the builder's one year warranty and the ten year transferable structural warranty.

Benchmark offers homes in a variety of price ranges and in many of Atlanta's most desirable locations, including Cobb County, where residents benefit from low taxes and close proximity to the heart of Atlanta and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. The character and charm of the Smyrna/Vinings area are shared by several Benchmark neighborhoods.
Residents experience a sense of community and a friendly small-town atmosphere through greenspace, local festivals, neighborhood restaurants and boutique shopping.

The charm of cottage architecture is featured in Concord Grove at the Covered Bridge, where residents enjoy family outings on the wonderful Silver Comet Trail and the historic covered bridge, both less than a mile away. This Smyrna community is priced from the mid $400's.

Kensington Green, Whitehall, Whitestone and Stonehall are located in the popular Vinings area. Kensington Green is reminiscent of neighborhoods of old, featuring plenty of open greenspace for family and friends to gather and visit. Many homes have inviting rocking chair front porches and alley-load three car garages. All homes are built with unparalleled
standard features that others charge as upgrades, with prices starting in the high $600's. Whitehall, priced from the $900's and situated on the highest bluff between downtown and Vinings, has breathtaking views of downtown, Midtown and Buckhead. The architecture of these estate homes is a mixture of both old-world and traditional, with plenty of stone and brick. Whitestone features charming manor homes, priced from the $600's. The elegant old-world architecture of the unique Stonehall Townhomes, located one mile inside I-285 on Atlanta Road at Log Cabin, will be the new gateway to Cobb County, with prices starting in the mid $500's.

The Highlands at Inverness Ridge features low-maintenance, traditional homes with a very close-in location just three miles from I-285 and South Cobb Drive, near Whitfield Academy. This highly popular and growing area makes The Highlands a unique investment opportunity, with homes priced from the mid $250's.

Chesterfield, located in West Cobb County, is a beautiful new neighborhood with plenty of greenspace and family gathering areas. The homes are situated on large lots and feature traditional architecture of brick, stone and cedar shake. Chesterfield, priced from the $300's, is just minutes from historic downtown Marietta, with easy access to Town Center Mall and the East-West Connector.

Continuing its tradition in South Fulton County, Benchmark offers three communities along the I-285/Cascade Road corridor. These neighborhoods accommodate an active lifestyle with nearby golfing at Wolf Creek and the Piedmont Driving Club, along with extensive shopping just around the corner and quick access to downtown and the airport. Sidewalks, cul-de-sacs and a lake distinguish Sandalwood Estates, with three and four bedroom homes priced from the $130's.
Canaan Walk Estates offers elegant, executive homes with superior standard features on wooded one acre lots, priced from the $400's to $600's. Madison Trace, priced from the $350's to $600's, is one of South Fulton's premier custom home communities, offering one acre wooded estate lots. The exterior and interior amenities in these classically-detailed homes are unmatched in the area.

Benchmark is also building in three neighborhoods in fast-growing Douglas County. The area's distinctive small-town feel is matched with excellent schools and medical facilities, yet is just a short drive from Atlanta. Arbor Place Mall, golfing and the nearly 3,000 acre Sweetwater State Park provide recreation for everyone in the family.

Charlton Crossing features custom, executive family homes on spacious and heavily wooded lots, and its swim and tennis amenities offer an inviting family lifestyle and respite from hectic workdays. These four to six bedroom, traditional homes feature hardwood and ceramic tile flooring, professional landscaping, and are priced from the $300's to $400's.

Residents of Mount Vernon Point come home to scenic views of Atlanta and a lifestyle full of recreational opportunities at their doorsteps, with its walking trails, pool, tennis courts and lake. These elegant homes, priced from the $300's, have large areas of hardwood floors and heavy trim packages in many plans.

Benchmark's newest neighborhood in this area is Prestley Park. Priced from the $450's, Prestley Park is a prestigious community with spacious lots and a great location, just minutes from neighborhood restaurants, boutique shopping and parks. Prestley Park features new and original designs with many upgrades, such as granite countertops, luxury tubs and spas, brick, stone, and 10 and 12 foot ceilings.

Benchmark is raising the bar in Carroll County in its newest neighborhood, Tanyard Village. Homes are priced from the $190's and are convenient to the I-20 corridor and historic town of Villa Rica. Tanyard Village beautifully combines the old-world charm and heritage of its surroundings with homes featuring front porches, side-entry garages and brick facades on large lots.

When you visit a Benchmark neighborhood, you'll discover the difference the standard of excellence makes.
