Do you have a price range in mind?
Our email address is Alpharetta even though we live in Forsyth County, the
next county to the north. Taxes are lower here than they are in Fulton County
and home prices can be, too, though theyâre building so many McMansions thatâs
no longer always the case.
I know of one house that isnât far over the county line that was home to a
small nursery and while the greenhouses are gone, the owner has quite a few nice
raised beds if youâd like to do some vegetable gardening and they also gardened
some near the house. No garden or lake, though thereâs a creek in the back yard.
There are lots of golf course communities. The Polo Fields is one of them
and is a little older than some neighborhoods so many of the owners have already
done soil prep and there are mature trees. Last time I gave a talk their, the
Polo Fields had a very friendly neighborhood newcomers group as does Olde
Atlanta, which also has/had a garden club.
Windermere is nice, but also not on the lake.
Hampton is farther out and has some nice homes on the golf course and a
private lake. Itâs also very near Lake Lanier. So is Cannongate at Lanier â
another older subdivision.
Let me know what youâre looking for and Iâll see if I can find someone who
knows the right place for you.
Would your husband settle for a river view with a nice golf course? I think
I know of one and itâs pretty close to Alpharetta. Actually, all of these are
close to Alpharetta in distance though not in time if itâs a rush hour.

Subject: [CHAT] moving again questions
One more question for the group. We are in the process of making another
move to the Atlanta area. We have been in Texas, Missouri, Oklahoma and
New Mexico but never Georgia.
Does anyone have any recommendations for that area? Our
daughter lives in Alpharetta and we would like to be close enough to be able to
watch our granddaughters choir and sports events. My husband wants to live
near a golf course and a lake but I will be there alone while he flies away
every week. I want good soil and a place to grow something again!
Thank you again for all of your advice. You all
have helped me so many times!
