Nestledown Farm Wins Active-Adult Community of the Year

Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates Jim Chapman Communities for winning Active-Adult Community of the Year for Nestledown Farm located in Cumming, Georgia. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards awarded to new home builders and developers in the Atlanta new home construction industry.

Nestledown Farm is a beautiful, age-restricted, 55+ community under development by Jim Chapman Communities in Cumming, Georgia within Forsyth County. Designed for those seeking low maintenance, single-level living, the 80 true ranch-style homes range from about 2,000 to 2,200 square feet, and start in the low $400,000s. All homes at this gated community include two-car garages, open living areas, large owner’s suites and covered outdoor living spaces. There are several home choices with a range in design, size and price, with main-level owner’s suites and additional bedroom and bonus space options on the second level, and most feature private woodland views.

Active adults love Nestledown Farm’s lock-and-leave lifestyle and outstanding location. The community is close to Lake Lanier, outstanding medical facilities and the North Georgia Mountains.  It’s an easy drive to Buckhead, Midtown or downtown Atlanta and a short walk to Cumming’s new city center, currently under development. When completed, the new shopping and dining district will also feature an amphitheater and trail system.

The centerpiece of Nestledown Farm is the beautiful clubhouse with fitness center, game room, large gathering room with fireplace, catering kitchen and an expansive, welcoming front veranda. Outdoors, residents can relax by the fireplace on the large outdoor patio, swim in the outdoor pool, work in the community garden or enjoy the two pickleball courts. The entire community is pet-friendly with manicured sidewalks throughout to make walking safe and enjoyable.

  1. Does anyone verify the actual property before Obie awards are given out? There is no outdoor fireplace at Nestledown Farm. There is no second picklelball court at Nestledown Farm. The square footage in the article is incorrect. A walking trail was promised and never completed although it was advertised to prospective buyers in print as recently as the summer of 2019. It looks like anything that gets built gets an Obie award.
