I'm building a new house, and as part of the planning process I'm looking to install an attic antenna, having RG6 and power run to the attic for this purpose.

Looking for best suggestion on an antenna. Some details:

Attic installation
Tuner - Channelmaster DVR+
Length of run approx 50 ft (attic-basement-splitter(2)-TVs)
Neighboring houses quite close together

TV Fool info:

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Max Angular difference between Canadian Stations (108-deg re. True North) and Local Stations (42-to-70-deg) is 66-degrees, so I would recommend the Hi-VHF/UHF Combo Antenna with the widest Beamwidth....which would be the Antennas-Direct C2-V (70-deg from Ch7-51). Despite Attic location, your signals are very strong and shouldn't need a Preamp to drive two TVs via an RF Splitter. If your Attic has higher than expected Loss or you decide to add more drops, Preamp of choice would be the Antennas-Direct Juice to prevent Overload with excellent Noise Figure (Sensitivity):

If you decide you don't WANT Canadian Stations, the most cost effective solution (today, act fast) would be the Antennacraft HBU-33, on-sale and going fast, delivered to your local at Radio-Shack to avoid shipping costs [note that HBU-22 is currently sold out]:
