Peachtree Corners ~ newest city just north of Atlanta

Peachtree Corners is the newest and largest new city of Gwinnett County.  It has a population of 34,000 people and lies on about 17 square miles.  The city shares borders with the cities of Dunwoody, Norcross, Berkely Lake, Johns Creek, Duluth and Norcross.

July 1, 2012 was an historic day when the governor of Georgia, Nathan Deal, proclaimed Peachtree Corners a city.  You will be hearing lots more of this exciting new city as the quality of life is worth a good peak!

The Forum is at the heart of the city and a sought out destination for dining and shopping.  This upscale retail center where music fills the air while you stroll the manicured gardens along the storefronts celebrates each season with community events like Christmas caroling, carriage rides and festival of lights.  You can find everything from Trader Joe’s fine foods to Williams and Sonoma and Barnes and Noble to Pottery Barn and everything in between.

The Chattahoochee River flows in close proximity to many beautiful neighborhoods and parks.  Canoeing, hiking, swimming and biking are everyday activities as temperatures are moderate most of the year.

Homes range from moderately priced to luxury homes with the latest technological trends.  Here is a sampling of homes with links to the actual home info or community.

The Sellers on these 2 resale homes love their communities for the walkability, and close proximity to amenities.  Both are new listings in the area priced at $325,000 and $279,000 respectively.   Golds Gym is a favorite haunt of my client Bob.   Gerry enjoys hiking the Appalachian trail (the trailhead is only an hour away!)   In fact Gerry is out w/ her husband George now on a 100 mile trek!  WOW!

The 3rd home is in a new gated community  called Tillman Walk  which is within an easy walk to the Chattahoochee River Park.

The YMCA is just up the road and  another hot spot where people come together to work out prior to their work day as well as meet after school and work for plenty of diverse activities.

And for all you fitness buffs out there… wait till you discover the new state of the art Lifetime Tennis Atlanta facility that is being built around the corner!  Indoor and outdoor tennis courts, state of the art fitness center, AND pool will all be housed where Racquet Club of the South used to be.  It should be completed by May 2013.

Schools are considered very good in this area.  For example, Simpson Elementary is a proud recipient of the Blue Ribbon Award for excellence and Norcross High School received a Silver award of excellence in top schools in the USA rankings report by U.S News.

Technology Park is a campus of low-rise buildings that house low-pollution, high technology industries. This business center provides a foundation for   local jobs of graduates in high technology fields.  Tucked within the canopy of trees that Atlanta is known for, this center is home to many executives who live within a very easy commute to the campus!

Whether you love the outdoors or enjoy the sanctuary of your home you will enjoy a quality of life unmatched in most of the eastern states.

Come and check us out for a tour of these fine home and community and more!
