Things are Happening in Roswell

Roswell GA Courthouse - Janet WeidmannExciting things are happening in our Roswell Community!!

Riverwalk Village an ecologically focused development has been haled as the most up and coming pedestrian friendly community in Atlanta!  I am thrilled to hear this development will incorporate the existing river park along Riverside Rd to residential homes, offices, schools, shops, hotel & restaurants and greenspace all within an easy on/off of HWY 400 and Holcomb Bridge Rd.  I am even more excited to hear the bike paths and pedestrian trails will eventually link with the Big Creek greenway with a proposed tunnel under Holcomb Bridge Rd.  Finally, Atlanta will rival other cities with a coherent plan for alternative bike paths and greenspace within a beautifully planned community!

What about traffic?  With an early off ramp you will be home ~ less traffic on Holcomb Bridge Rd., easier commute and potentially with more Class A office space in Riverwalk Village means more options for working in the immediate proximity of your home!

Should existing homeowners
with the larger lots be concerned for future resale?
I would say, ‘not to worry!!’ There will always be buyers who want privacy, larger home lots w/ mature trees and the traditional home.  Although Roswell City Logo_framedthe housing trends are pointing to more communities like Riverwalk Village, homeowners must also recognize that in these newer communities you will be experiencing a more urban lifestyle with closer proximity to neighbors and less privacy.  Recognize that there are all sort of buyer profiles and land is a finite entity.  Those of us on larger pieces of property will always have a unique value proposition.  Dirt prices continue to rise and Buyers will always be weighing their options between the various community options.

Nestled in the horseshoe formed by the mighty Chattahoochee River, this country club neighborhood has always been a magnet for executive families.  Recently Horseshoe Bend Country Club has undergone a $10,000,000 face lift and as a result the housing has experienced an upward trend in prices.

What do homeowners enjoy about the location of Horseshoe Bend?  Walking throughout the neighborhood is a favorite pastime.  The lakes and forests views are beautiful in spring and summer; there’s a walking club to join if you prefer company.  It is a safe neighborhood as some folks can be seen walking their pets as early as 4:30 A.M.!   Other benefits… Lunch at the clubhouse, fireworks on the green, and of course the constant activity of swim, tennis and golf events.

Have you checked out Horseshoe Bend Country Club lately?

Horseshoe Bend Country Club has always been a magnet for executive families, but like most places in the early 2000’s the facility was beginning to look a bit tired and worn.

In late 2011 our WOW team popped by to see what all the buzz was about after hearing the club was under new ownership and beginning a major renovation. As realtors specializing in Horseshoe Bend we were very excited about the prospective plans on the drawing board.  Horseshoe Bend Country ClubWe knew intuitively that the renovation would positively impact the values in Horseshoe Bend.  Fast forward to 2013… values in Horseshoe Bend are on the upswing due in great part to the new facelift at the Club!

The much-anticipated new club has proven to be everything we had hoped for! Opening up the walls, redesigning the locker rooms, and expanding communal spaces and dining options has been ‘spot on’ in creating a premiere club in north Atlanta. Members have enthusiastically embraced the new look.

Today this $10,000,000 renovation has transformed Horseshoe Bend Country Club into a state of the art facility sporting a comfortably elegant clubhouse and redesigned course offering new bunkers as well as new practice facilities. The next phase (phase IV) will begin soon in rebuilding the tennis and swim centers. The best part is the club and its attending facilities have run flawlessly while under renovation!

Horseshoe Bend Country Club

The Grandstand Tavern, a traditional yet elegant southern restaurant and outdoor terrace offers
a place for members and guests to enjoy an eclectic menu while overlooking fantastic golf course vistas.

One of my most favorite spots is the temperature controlled 4 season terrace addition where all the windows open to create an open air dining experience while overlooking the pastoral greens
and lake. There is a new rotating pizza oven where friends & families love to come together for casual dining or the executive chef and his team can design personalized menus for your private functions.

If you haven’t checked out Horseshoe Bend Country Club lately I suggest you not wait.  When word gets out there will likely be a wait list to join!
Golf membership is almost full.  The value is unparalleled for the benefits you receive.
