When you’re searching for your forever home, you look at so much more than the residence itself. While square footage, bedroom count and finishes are extremely important in your decision-making process, you undoubtedly are on the hunt for the complete package that includes a location in a neighborhood that meets your particular lifestyle needs. Fortunately, metro Atlanta boasts an array of new home communities that are as unique as the residents who choose them.
“One of the reasons new home construction is so popular is that you get to choose the community that best fits your lifestyle,” says Lori Lane, Senior Vice President and Managing Broker of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, Georgia Properties New Homes Division. “Communities in and around Atlanta offer an excellent value with all the high-end amenities that come with living in a metropolitan area. With the large number of counties in Metro Atlanta there are a wide variety of communities that appeal to any price point.”
Whichever lifestyle category speaks to you, you’re sure to find the perfect new home community in the metro area. Lane shares a few outstanding options based on your personal lifestyle wish list.
Wide Open Spaces
Metro Atlanta is home to bustling city streets and towering high-rises, but it also is known for its rolling green hills and sprawling rural and equestrian land. If the latter is more appealing to you, then head north of Atlanta and check out The Homestead at Milton, a private gated community that sits on a stunning property that formerly served as a 180-acre golf course. The Homestead at Milton features 30 wooded home sites that range in size from three to 10 acres and access to a world-class design team that includes award-winning architect Stephen Fuller and Atlanta’s top custom homebuilder Loudermilk Homes. Homes, which range from $3.5 million to more than $10 million, feature their own unique characteristics brimming with outstanding Southern architecture and amenities.
Water, Water Everywhere
If life on the lake is calling your name, then you’re in luck. Lake Lanier, a 38,000-acre reservoir situated in Northeast Georgia, offers a host of residential options that will allow you to spend your days out on the water whenever you please. Long Hollow Landing, a new community in Gainesville, is just one of them. A curated, European, urban farmhouse community, Long Hollow Landing ultimately will feature 59 home sites, with eight being lakeside. A community dock and boat slips available for purchase make the neighborhood—with beautifully designed four- and five-bedroom residences from David Patterson Homes ranging from the $500s to $1 million-plus—a water enthusiast’s dream come true.
It’s no secret that metro Atlanta has become a hub for creatives. From a booming film production industry to an excellent scene for writers, musicians and artists of all kinds, the area has cultivated quite a cultural scene. For those who want to take advantage of the energy that comes with it, there’s Trilith, a mixed-use community designed for creatives located in Fayetteville. Trilith features everything from single-family homes and micro-homes to industrial lofts ranging in price from $500s to $2 million+, as well as an eco-friendly lifestyle marked by ample green space, pocket parks, resort-style amenities, commercial and retail space, onsite dining options, a dedication to environmental sustainability and more.
