McConnell Green Named 55+ Community of the Year

Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Windsong Properties for winning 55+ Community of the Year for McConnell Green in West Cobb. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier accolades given to new home builders and developers in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

Located in Powder Springs, McConnell Green is a best-selling community from Windsong Properties. While set in a more rural West Cobb locale, McConnell Green is still convenient to local amenities like Lost Mountain Park, The Avenues of West Cobb and the West Cobb Aquatic Center.

Previously used as farmland, the community had to be designed around a few obstacles including a small stream and utility easement running through the property. Despite these difficulties, the land design allowed for a spectacular approach at the community entryway set off the less congested Corner Road. A circular grand commons area of greenspace is flanked by homes on either side, funneling your eye down to the front elevation of the stately McConnell House, a beautiful manor home at the heart and center of not only the neighborhood but the lifestyle of the homeowners.

The neighborhood’s stately McConnell House features an exercise room, library, pub room, and kitchen, connected by a grand room with fireplace that invites community gatherings, movie nights, and watching the big game. The outdoor grilling area at the back of the clubhouse, community garden and dog park encourage frequent gatherings of neighbors. Sidewalks and streetlights throughout the neighborhood welcome daily walks.

Three main avenues, each ending in cul-de-sacs make up the majority of the community and allow for our courtyard homes to be situated without a home directly behind. Thus, providing as much greenspace and privacy to each home as possible. Our low maintenance homes feature welcoming front porches and create beautiful streetscapes down each avenue. With little elevation change throughout the street design, our homeowners have the enjoyment of a walkable community promoting a healthier active lifestyle.

All these aspects of the community have led to its success and enjoyment by its first homeowners, making McConnell Green the destination for active adults looking to make connections and have fun while improving their quality of life.
