Atlanta Real Estate Forum congratulates McKinney Builders for winning the prestigious Active Adult Community of the Year award at the 41st Annual OBIE Awards. Presented by the Atlanta Sales and Marketing Council of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, the OBIE Awards are the premier awards given to home builders in the Atlanta new home construction industry.
Located in Newnan, The Gardens at Arbor Springs is a premier active adult community nestled in the beautiful neighborhood of Arbor Springs Plantation. “Downsizing without Downgrading” is the motto for this enclave of European-style courtyard cottages that offer a variety of thoughtfully designed single-level homes with custom finishes and expansion options. Amenities include a clubhouse, gym, bocce ball court and community garden as well as a neighborhood golf course easily accessed via golf cart.
Priced from the high $400,000s, The Gardens at Arbor Springs is specifically designed to offer active adults an intimate community experience larger, master-planned active adult communities lack. Built for aging in place, the homes feature expansive owner suites on the main level, spacious spa-like bathrooms, and a large unfinished space over the garage, perfect for a full-time caregiver apartment. The homes in The Gardens also feature designer finishes, including Bosch appliances, Pella windows, tankless hot water heaters, spray foam insulation and Geothermal HVAC systems.
Each home wraps around a unique interior courtyard that offer fantastic views from every room. Many homeowners customize their courtyards with private pools, while others create a backyard oasis with pergolas and outdoor kitchens. The private spaces especially appealed to buyers during the pandemic as it provides a way to enjoy the outdoors while remaining safe.
Located just one mile from I-85, The Gardens are 20 minutes away from Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson International Airport, making year-round travel a breeze. The homeowner association monthly fees include garbage pickup, yard and irrigation maintenance to promote an easy “lock and leave” lifestyle. Currently under construction, the new Publix shopping center just outside the community will feature restaurants and boutiques that homeowners can access via a community golf cart path, making shopping or meeting friends quick and easy.
Currently, there are 49 homesites in phase I, with 17 opportunities remaining. Slated to begin in 2021, Phase II will feature 22 additional homesites. Buyers continuously fall in love with this unique community and the customizable homes that tout finishes not typically found in larger active adult neighborhoods. The community is so popular that the builder for The Gardens also calls the development home.
