Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Heatherland Homes for winning Detached Community of the Year for Marvelle located in Marietta.

Individual designs can accommodate two-story foyers, basements with bonus areas, kitchen islands and covered front porches and owner’s suites with sitting areas and his-and-hers granite vanities.

Adding to the interior charm is the community’s quaint streetscape with fully sodded and landscaped front yards edged by sidewalks. Marvelle also offers convenience to major work centers in Cobb County including Dobbins Air Reserve Base, the Kennestone Hospital medical complex and government offices on the Marietta square, just over a mile from residents’ front doors.

The historic Marietta square, with its charming fountain, gazebo and concert stage, is the heart of this community. It’s the setting for the annual Taste of Marietta food fest and a range of activities for all ages throughout the year. Dine and shop at unique places around the square and at the new Marietta Square Market, a refurbished warehouse that now boasts an array of casual dining and dessert options. A variety of live performances fill the Strand Theatre and the Theatre in the Square, while there’s always an open mic at Johnnie MacCracken’s Irish pub, housed in an old fire station.

When it’s time to say, “Play ball!” head to Truist Park for a dog and a cold one. The deluxe Major League stadium is also a musical venue that’s welcomed the likes of Billy Joel and Def Leppard. Adjacent to the field is The Battery Atlanta, a collection of upscale shops and dining destinations created by some of the area’s top chefs. Additionally, stars of music, drama, dance, comedy and opera head to the nearby Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre.
