SR Homes to Host Grand Opening of New Athens Community

Join top Atlanta home builder SR Homes for the grand opening of its newest Athens community at Lakewood on Saturday, August 11. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., attendees will enjoy music, gourmet hors-d’oeuvres, mimosas and a $3,000 offer in designer upgrades exclusively for attendees, as well as entry to win an Apple Watch and other prizes.

Lakewood, conveniently located just outside the GA 10 loop, the perfect locale for game days at University of Georgia, is a single-family home community priced from the $300,000s to $500,000s. This collection of homes pairs time-honored traditional architecture with classic design features including side- and rear-entry garage options, main-level owner’s suites and traditional two-story plans with modern appointments.

The newly decorated model home features the traditional two-story Milledge home design with 2,819 square feet of thoughtfully designed living space and four bedrooms, three-and-a-half baths and a rear-entry, two-car garage. The charming covered front porch immediately welcomes guests into the grand foyer of this open-concept floor plan. The main level features a flex room, great room with elegant coffered ceiling, a breakfast area and impressive gourmet kitchen with ample cabinet and counterspace. Other main level appointments include a mudroom, covered patio and powder room.

Three secondary bedrooms, one with its own bathroom, join the luxurious owner’s suite on the upper level. The owner’s suite boasts tray ceiling, dual vanities, a spacious shower and massive walk-in closet. An additional secondary bathroom with dual vanities, a versatile loft area and an oversized laundry room complete the second level.

Residents at Lakewood enjoy convenience to US-78, University of Georgia and Downtown Athens. An endless array of local bistros and restaurants, boutique shops, entertainment options and beautiful parks are all nearby, as well as Athens Regional Hospital, University of Georgia Health Care and St. Mary’s Health Care System are also convenient for an easy commute. Proposed community amenities include a pool with cabana and greenspace.
