The Heart of Hartness:
Eye-catching architecture just the beginning in Eastside neighborhood
There’s a lot to take in at Hartness, which welcomed its first residents in 2018, has around 64 full-time residents now, and has nearly 200 homes that are sold or in the process of being constructed. Of the property’s 444 acres, 180 are preserved as green space, including 15 miles of trails. A grand lawn sweeps through the center of the community, opening to views of the Blue Ridge. And then there are the homes, which echo great architecture from around the South and around the world.
