New Developer Takes Over Bush Road Project

The project plan now calls for 16 custom homes on the 10-acre property. Construction on the new subdivision named Peachtree Reserve, is slated to begin before the end of the year.

Peachtree Corners residents who live or travel along Bush Road will soon see an onslaught of bulldozers and trucks on the 10-acre tract of land that's currently surrounded by an orange silt fence.

Developers are about to break ground on the Peachtree Reserve, a new residential development of custom-made homes.

However, a new developer has taken over the project. The original developer Marty Orr, is no longer involved.

The property is being developed by private investors; Re/Max Alliance will be marketing the property.

"Hopefully we will get the permit to grade and develop either this week or next," said Matt Rhule, with Re/Max.

Rhule said the plans are to start building two model homes as soon as the curbs and utilities are in. The original plans called for 19 homes, but that number was reduced to comply with Gwinnett County's tree conservation ordinance he said.

The first plans had called for 19 homes on the property which were to be located near Bush Road. A portion of the property behind the homes was to be remain undisturbed to ensure drainage from rain runoff would not adversely affect surrounding properties.

Matt Houser, who sits on both the City's and the Gwinnett's Planning Commission, said that as long as the new plans were not significantly changed and they complied and met any special conditions, a second Public Hearing would not be required.

The new plans (included with this story) call for a similar arrangement with the homes located toward the front of the property with a undisturbed area behind the homes.

Builder Scott Puckett, will be constructing the custom homes which are to range in size from 4,000 to 4,800 square feet. Ruhle said that the builder "has done a lot of work in the Buford area, including Chateau Elan, Hidden Falls and Drayton Hall."

The homes are expected to be priced in the $550,000 to $700,000 range and will be three or four sided brick and include a mix of brick and stone in earthtone colors. Rhule said the custom homes will "have a Craftsman feel," though will not actually be Craftsman homes.

"We hope to have the land cleared and ready to build in a month and start construction (on the model homes) in November," said Rhule. "And we expect building will be well underway by spring."

Re/Max Alliance's office is located in Duluth, for more information on the development contact Matt Rhule via email or at 678-522-5060.

Do not buy a home from Scott Puckett, look at the Gwinnett County court site and see how many people have sued him LPI, Leverette, Scott Puckett and he lies about his money and does not pay what he owes for problems with his homes or does not pay his suppliers

Judy should also mention that Scott has a done a great job leaving his prior customers high and dry when his prior company was liquidated. How is it you can start a new company after bankrupting your prior one. Buyers beware!

I have found no derogatory information on Mr. Puckett posted anywhere. If you would like to enlighten our readers that would be most helpful.

Judy, Here a few sites to start with, there are so many court cases you could spend a day reviewing. http://www.gwinnettcourts.com/home.asp#partycasesearch/pnamelast:puckett/pnamefirst:scott/qfields:8199/pcsform:1/ http://www.gwinnettcourts.com/home.asp#partycasesearch/pnamelast:leverette/qfields:8199/pcsform:1/ http://www.bbb.org/atlanta/business-reviews/home-builders/lpi-leverette-p-in-buford-ga-27288844

Scott Puckett is the worst builder I have ever met. He screwed buyers in Cherokee County- go talk to those that bought from him I'm millstone at little river and millstone manor. They will give you the real story. So many never got major problems fixed by him. Other poster correct when you look at how many lawsuits brought against him and his businesses. I can't wait to show up with a big sign warning potential buyers in this community. What comes around goes around Wendell Scott Puckett.
