The Orchards of East Cherokee experienced a phenomenal sales year in 2013, which can be attributed to both the brand name that The Orchards Group has created and the outstanding homes that are offered. Since 1998, The Orchards Group has built and finished more active adult communities than any other builder in the metro Atlanta area, and it is very proud of that fact.

One of the most unique factors about The Orchards of East Cherokee is that it is not located in one specific downtown area. The community is located no more than 10 to 12 minutes away from four unique downtown areas, including Canton, historic Roswell, historic Alpharetta and downtown Woodstock. In addition, the new Outlet Shoppes at Atlanta just opened and is only minutes away from downtown Woodstock, providing residents with even more fabulous shopping opportunities.

Another perk of the Cherokee County location is that property taxes are very affordable, especially for those residents over the age of 62, who receive a 70 percent discount due to the school tax exemption. This special exemption can potentially save homeowners thousands of dollars.

The Orchards Group has sold more than 30 active adult homes just this year at The Orchards of East Cherokee, and more than 100 of the 140 total homes in the community. Due to this brisk sales pace, the builder expects to be sold out by the end of 2014.

The homes at The Orchards of East Cherokee are affordably priced from the low to mid $200,000s. The spacious, livable homes are all ranch condominium floor plans, which means that all exterior building maintenance, as well as landscape maintenance, is taken care of for the homeowners. These homes feature all of the standard options that today’s buyers expect, including hardwood flooring in the kitchen and foyer, 10 foot ceilings with double crown molding in the living room, a trey ceiling in the master bedroom and a master shower with a marble surround and built-in seat. The homes also include space upstairs that can be used as a bonus room or a walk-up storage area.

Thanks to the low-maintenance lifestyle at The Orchards of East Cherokee, residents will have plenty of time to enjoy the resort-style amenities. These include a grand clubhouse with an exercise room, large gourmet kitchen and a media room, as well as an outdoor pool and a waterfall plaza.

There are two model homes for home buyers to tour that are open seven days a week. For more information, contact the sales center by calling 770-345-5409 or visit
