Huntcliff was developed by Brooke Temple and Wayne Robinson in the early 1980s as a high-end subdivision initially laid out as 30 lots across 43 acres. The two entrepreneurs came together once again following the successful reception of River Place and other neighborhoods in the Horseleg Creek corridor.
Carved from land originally belonging to the Frank H. Jones, Louis L. Jones III and William T. Morris families not far from the banks of the Coosa River, Huntcliff was envisioned to be an exclusive community representing new heights in residential construction and quality of life. The initial target market for the “choice homes” on “choice lots” dotting River Pine Drive and Fox Chase (originally planned as River Overlook Court) were buyers relocating into Floyd County for the area’s growing industry and healthcare sectors.
Huntcliff stands out locally and regionally as one of the first developments in the Coosa Valley to have Atlanta architects engaged in the design of its homes. The talents of big names including Frank Betz and Stephen Fuller were recruited by Robinson, who knew the architects personally from his time in Atlanta. Among the unique features of these homes were the larger roof lines with multiple cuts that officially made their debut in the area with Huntcliff.
For their efforts in delivering a development unparalleled for its time, Toles, Temple & Wright was honored with a beautification award by the Rome Area Chamber of Commerce. With each subdivision seemingly serving as a step up from the last, Temple and Robinson continued to build an inventory of essential housing that would continue the growth along Horseleg Creek Road.
