Construction Continues at Brookhaven at Sugarloaf

Activity and interest in Brookhaven at Sugarloaf is heating up just like this summer weather. This Jim Chapman community, designed for active adults in Duluth, Ga., had an especially successful month of June.

June brought many sales, new home construction and rising interest in this community. Of the eight new homes currently under construction, four are already under contract. In addition to that, four other homes were sold.

Brookhaven at Sugarloaf is perfect for active adults seeking Atlanta relocation to be closer to their children.

Brookhaven at Sugarloaf homes feature the Westminster and the Oxford floorplans. The 2,500 square foot Westminster includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a breakfast nook off the kitchen area. This model is priced to sell at $267,790. The slightly smaller 1,600 square foot Oxford, priced at $246,430, includes two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Both models offer a 500 square foot bonus room upstairs.

Each plan has elegant details including custom wood trim, 12- to 16-foot vaulted ceilings, gas fireplaces with decorative mantels and spa-like owner bathrooms with large double vanities and ceramic tile showers. The kitchens have casual breakfast bars, gourmet GE appliances and custom cabinets.

The one-level ranch homes also meet wheelchair access standards – with a step-free entrance and larger doorways and bathrooms – that make maneuvering around the homes easier for homeowners.

Brookhaven at Sugarloaf was named Greater Atlanta Homebuilders Association’s 2008 Fifty-Plus Community of the Year and Attached Community of the Year.

Couple Weds at Brookhaven of East Cobb Clubhouse Sunday

Marv Adams and Cindy Benzine said their “I do’s” Sunday, at the clubhouse in the community of Brookhaven of East Cobb, where the couple recently purchased a new home. The two had been neighbors in a gated Marietta community for seven years, and had began the courting process after Adams’ wife of 51 years passed in June 2009.

“I called him 911 Marv for many years,” recalled Cindy. “Whenever I needed something done I would knock on his door.”

However, a knock on her door from Marv changed it all.

“I asked her to go out to dinner…not as a date but as friends…we were just going to break bread,” said Marv.

“It quickly turned into a date,” said Cindy laughing.

Marv was glad that it did however, and after seven months of dating,  Marv and Cindy decided to put both of their homes up for sale. Both knew it could take up to a year for their homes to sell, but after only four days, someone purchased Cindy’s home, and a few days later someone else purchased Marv’s. (Continued…)

Windsong Properties Announced with Numerous Awards at Atlanta Housing Awards Ceremony

Windsong Properties, leading active adult courtyard home builder, won Best 50+ Community of the Year for its Somerset community in Woodstock, Ga. during the 30th Annual OBIE Awards Ceremony on Nov. 13 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Buckhead. Windsong also received four additional OBIEs for their achievements in home building.

Somerset is a popular community, especially for selling 50 EarthCraft certified homes since its opening in 2007. There are only seven home sites still available with the EarthCraft certification, so act fast if you too would like to be a “green” home owner. Somerset is gated, located in a rural setting, yet still in close proximity to a wide range of shopping and dining options. The community clubhouse is a great place for residents to socialize, with a garden retreat as well. Homes in the Somerset community feature no-step access, wide doorways, and lever handles among other amenities to assist changing life situations. (Continued…)
