The location at the foothills of the North Georgia mountains is one of the community’s top amenities. It’s a uniquely rural setting, but just minutes from shopping, dining, and entertainment. Within the community, it’s all about fun and friendship. The clubhouse is an 8,000+ sf facility with a social space and kitchen, a junior Olympic pool, waterslide and water features, tennis courts, pickle ball courts, and a viewing pavilion. The Village Green is a central gathering place with sports fields, gardens, walking paths, and benches. The community playground was created from kid-safe recycled materials.

The main focus for the design team was to develop a property that incorporated the natural beauty of its surrounding areas and blend it with today’s top design trends by having open floor concepts, natural lighting, and using natural materials (wood, posts, brackets, trellis).

From the Judges
