For home buyers looking to purchase a spacious home in a prime metro Atlanta location, time is running out at Traton Homes’ Oakwood community in Kennesaw. Located in the top-rated Harrison High School district, these final homes are sure to sell quickly.
The final three homes at Oakwood Creek feature popular home designs including the Chatfield, Knollwood and Melford.
Priced at $383,500, the Chatfield is the last remaining basement home and is also the only master-on-the-main floor plan of the three. Additional highlights of the open interiors include a gourmet kitchen with large island and granite countertops, a cozy hearth room, large family room with fireplace and deep coffered ceiling, formal dining room and hardwood floors throughout most of the main level. This beautiful four bedroom/three-and-a-half bathroom is move-in ready.
Residents at two metro Atlanta active adult communities are actively taking a part in creating the ultimate lifestyle for themselves and their neighbors. The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm and The Orchards of East Cherokee, both active adult communities from The Orchards Group, feature an abundance of amenities and activities for their residents to enjoy. However, many of the events and activities at these two communities are organized and run by the homeowners, even though some of the events are sponsored by The Orchards Group.
The residents of each of these communities have taken responsibility for their lifestyle, and they have become more personally involved with the community and their neighbors. Often, the resident-planned activities prove to be more successful than those planned by an onsite activities director.
At The Orchards Group’s Hickory Flat community, The Orchards of East Cherokee, residents have been particularly active in scheduling events and activities over the past year. For example, as more homeowners have continued to move into the community, the monthly Meet and Greet dinner has expanded to being held three times per month.
“Each new homeowner that moves into our communities brings a different interest or hobby,” said Mitch Block, sales and marketing director for The Orchards Group. “Because of this, we are seeing a growing use of the clubhouse, which is exactly the intention. Hopefully, we will continue to see residents create new groups, such as card groups or even movie groups.”
Residents at The Orchards Group have also started groups that include a men’s coffee gathering, ladies lunch outing, Saturday night themed party, book club, game day and a craft club.
To experience the unique active adult lifestyle that can be found at The Orchards Group communities, contact The Orchards of East Cherokee at 770-345-5409 or The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm at 678-513-8879. Or, visit www.OrchardsGroup.com.

In the month of September, The Orchards Group closed eight new active adult homes at their two metro Atlanta communities. The popular active adult builder has seen tremendous success in 2013, and they expect one of their communities, The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm, to be sold out by the end of the year. The Orchards of East Cherokee, their second active adult community, is now more than 60 percent sold out.
Each community saw four new home closings last month, with six of the total closings coming from home buyers who were already metro Atlanta residents. This is just further proof that the metro Atlanta real estate market has improved significantly since the beginning of 2011.
According to Mitch Block, the director of sales and marketing for The Orchards Group, 75 percent of their new home buyers were moving in from out of state during the depths of the recession. “The local prospective buyers simply could not sell their existing homes, which was necessary for them to be able to buy new homes.”
Thanks to the improvement that’s been seen in the Atlanta resale market, The Orchards Group is experiencing increased sales because active adults are now able to sell their home.
The Orchards Group provides residents with a maintenance-free lifestyle at all of their communities. Regular landscaping is provided by the homeowner’s association, and it includes weekly cutting, mulch replacement, irrigation and chemical treatments.
Thanks to the maintenance-free lifestyle, residents at both of The Orchards Group’s active adult communities will have plenty of time to enjoy the outstanding amenities that are available. At each community, you will find a sparkling swimming pool, barbeque grilling area and a grand clubhouse that is complete with a gourmet kitchen, fitness center and card and game rooms. In addition, you will find a fire pit, community lawn and gentlemen’s den with a fireplace at The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm. At The Orchards of East Cherokee, residents will enjoy a waterfall sitting plaza that is the perfect place to spend a quiet afternoon relaxing.
For more information on the new active adult homes from The Orchards Group, contact The Orchards of East Cherokee sales center at 770-345-5409 or The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm sales center at 678-519-8879. Or, visit www.OrchardsGroup.com.

The Orchards Group is excited to announce that they are quickly selling out of new active adult homes at The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm. They have seen a record number of sales so far this year, and with only one single-family home still remaining, the urgency for those looking to purchase one of the final homes has never been greater.
In addition to the final single-family home, The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm has only six ranch condominiums and 14 master-on-the-main villas available. These final homes are priced from the $270,000s to the $350,000s.
“Due to this incredible surge in sales, we find ourselves having to quote delivery dates well into late winter or early spring of 2014,” said Mitch Block, director of sales and marketing for The Orchards Group. “It’s a great chance for folks to buy their new home and have at least a month or two to make their decorating selections.”
With 40 new homes sold so far this year, and 15 of them occurring in the past eight weeks, there is no doubt that these final homes will be gone before the end of 2013. The surge in sales that has been experienced is largely attributed to the fact that The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm is quickly approaching “sold out” status. “Urgency compels people to buy. As we run out of incredible product, the urgency does nothing but increase. We will definitely be sold out before December,” remarked sales associate Deborah Reahm.
As the largest Orchards Group community, The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm is home to outstanding amenities and three distinctive home collections. The amenities include a grand clubhouse with a gentlemen’s den and fireplace, fitness center, gourmet kitchen and card and game rooms. Outside, you will find a sparkling swimming pool, barbeque grilling area, fire pit and community lawn.
The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm offers residents a quick commute to GA 400, North Point Mall, seven golf courses, Lake Lanier, downtown Cumming, St. Josephs and Northside Hospital, as well as a multitude of other dining, retail and entertainment destinations.
For more information on the final active adult homes available at The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm, visit their website at www.OrchardsGroup.com or contact the sales office at 678-513-8879.
