In an interesting change, Atlanta new homes are now drawing Florida residents a little north for retirement. Florida communities, typically known as the retirement place of the south, now have a run for their money with the amazing active adult communities built by Jim Chapman Communities.

Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge is one of these gorgeous age-restricted communities that are drawing families from Florida. Jack and Carolyn Bara made the move to Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge this past July from Bonita Springs, Fla. after waiting four years for the real estate market to shift.

The Bara family was very anxious to buy a new home in Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge, but they were unable to purchase their first choice because of this popular community’s high demand. However, the Bara family did not let this deter them, and they soon purchased a home within the community.

“This was the last one,” stated Jack Bara in a recent Atlanta Journal Constitution story.
“We jumped on it and moved in.”

The Bara’s are very happy to now live closer to their children and grandchildren. Plus, they are still ecstatic about their amazing deal of a home at Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge.

It’s no wonder this beautiful Forsyth County community caught the Bara’s interest! These lovely two and three bedroom, stepless homes are perfect for active adults. Currently, Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge has five available homes priced in the $200,000s. Amenities include a clubhouse with heated pool, exercise center, professional community management, landscaping and much more!
