So, my newest property listing is in WOODSTOCK, Georgia– just 24 miles outside of Atlantain Cherokee County. Woodstock is truly the all American city. http://www.woodstockga.gov The Towne Lake neighborhoods are especially impressive, AND there’s a country club one can join that is both affordable, available (no long waiting list) and which has an award winning golf course http://www.townelakehillsgc.com ! Downtown Woodstock is very charming and has some original buildings still standing. This is definitely a place for you to consider if you are looking for a home!
Let me tell you just a few fascinating facts about WOODSTOCK:
- Woodstock was first settled in 1830, when Georgia was still part of the Cherokee Indian Territory (in 1838, the Cherokees were forced into Oklahoma and the area became part of the State ofGeorgia)
- Cotton MADE Woodstock, as it did many Georgia cities
- The railroad depot in downtown Woodstock (pictured here) was built in 1912 and is on the National Register of Historic Places
- By that time,Woodstock has a thriving downtown business district. Many of the old buildings remain, including the Dean Drug Store, which is now the Woodstock Visitor’s Center (where I met a very helpful Kyle Bennett (thank you, Kyle!) who helped me with all this information)
- As the decades rolled on, Woodstock became what it is today – a great place to live combining history with modern day convenience
- The city has an amazing Greenprints Trail system – 60 miles of trails in development – much of which is already walkable
- For those who prefer two wheels, self motored, there’s the Taylor Randahl Mountain Bike Trail, widely acclaimed among mountain bikers and a great way to spend a Saturday http://www.singletracks.com/bike-trails/taylor-randahl-memorial-mountain-bike-trails-at-olde-rope-mill-park.html
- There are brand new homes and townhomes by John Weiland going up near downtown and a new 6500 seat amphitheater will open in 2012; Woodstock is growing, even in this economy!
My new listing is in an area called TowneLake, a master planned community about 2 miles due west of downtown Woodstock, in an area known as the “Thousand Acre Woods”. There is no actual Towne Lake– but there’s lots of nearby water recreation available in the form of Lake Allatoona, one of metro Atlanta’s popular lakes. Towne Lake is well known for its golf courses and for being a great place to live! Here are some pictures of my new listing ON THE GOLF COURSE, 316 Ironhill Trace, listed for $350,000. Let me know if you or someone you know might be interested in this wonderful home!
