We have been hearing it for years, the large boomer population is nearing retirement. Although this economy is effecting what, when and where they retire to, the need is apparently still there. Throughout the North Atlanta area there are several Active Adult Communities that are selling homes briskly and their builders are getting positive reviews.There is the well appointed ranch homes in Ballantrae which was developed by award wining Morningside Partners. Ballantrae at Creekstone Estates is a stunning, gated maintenance-free community nestled at the edge of John’s Creek in a formal park-like setting. Our sixty-eight luxury ranch condominiums are exquisitely finished and situated for maximum privacy. From nine to ten foot coffered and trey ceilings, granite countertops, hardwood floors, casement windows, high-end custom cabinets, and ornate molding, no detail has been ignored. Step outside our beautiful residences to a spectacular clubhouse (now open), putting greens, and waterfalls.
Then there is the affordable 2-bedroom units at Sawnee Corners. This community will consist of 72, one level brick units upon completion. Monthly activities are in full swing. Just a few of the activities are monthly dinners, weekly card games, and a sewing club. A newsletter is distributed each month to homeowners alerting them to the schedule of events. It is a super community to call home!
Jim Chapman Communities offers all brick units in their gated community, Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge. With large front porches, brick exteriors with stacked stone and heated pools you will see why Jom Chapman Communities recently received a Gold and Silver award at the National Association of Home Builders Best of 50+ Housing Awards.
Finally, the Orchards at Brannon Oak provides home owners maintenance free living, a grand Club House, and activities director and access to two pools.
