Alpharetta New Homes and Community Background

Though officially considered one of Atlanta's suburbs, the city of Alpharetta stands on its own two feet with a population exceeding 65,000 residents. The community got its start in the mid-nineteenth century as a campground chosen for its incredible greenery and nearby spring. It remained fairly small, with few options in Alpharetta real estate listings until fairly recently, when the transport of several large high-tech companies created the kind of community that allows families to live and work well.

Alpharetta, Georgia is now a home for such corporations as Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Verizon Wireless, General Electric, and Sun Microsystems. It is considered a bit of a high-tech center in its own right, though big business is hardly the order of the day. Instead, city planners have always placed a focus on finding the right combination of growth and stable family living. To this end, parks and recreation opportunities are numerous, and many Alpharetta real estate agents find that this is one of the few areas where the suburban way of life gives way to an active and healthy lifestyle.

Of course, one of the biggest draws of Alpharetta is also the exclusive Windward development, an executive golf, swim, and tennis community with over 20 distinct neighborhoods. This incredible area is spread out over 3,400 acres of green landscape, and many homes come with access to the area's award-winning golf course, country club, and 195-acre lake.

Alpharetta, GA Parks and Recreation

Another one of the most popular attractions for Alpharetta condo and Alpharetta new home buyers is Wills Park, an arboretum and outdoor center conveniently located near the city's center. In addition to a walking tour through the arboretum, the area offers a natural greenway for bikers or walkers interested in the local scenery. With over 110 acres of sporting activities, picnic areas, and walking trails, this area is also home to the Wills Park Equestrian Center. The Equestrian Center resides on 50 acres, enabling residents to keep their horses in one of the 298 stalls on the premises. 

Those with sports on their minds also have plenty of opportunities; in addition to the equestrian facilities, Will Park offers an Olympic-sized pool with summer lifeguards, four picnic pavilions, eight baseball fields, two tee-ball fields, playground, disc golf course, tennis courts, and a 1.5 mile walking trail.

Whether you look for Alpharetta real estate listings near the park or take advantage of Alpharetta new homes in one of the family-friendly neighborhoods, the entire city showcases what Georgia is known for: a beautiful countryside and plenty of Southern charm.

Alpharetta Real Estate Listings for Families

Another big draw for families in the area is the incredible school systems. Almost all Alpharetta homes for sale lie in the Fulton County School district, which features a number of public schools as well as a public charter school known as Amana Academy. The entire school district boasts a student to teacher ratio of only 14:1, which reflects one of the lowest ratios in the entire state of Georgia.

The Future of Alpharetta New Homes for Sale

With a growing population and a continued focus on building family-oriented communities, fewer cities are better poised for growing families or retirees looking to step away from the hassle of big city living. Alpharetta real estate agents are quick to point out that the City Center and booming local economy mean ample jobs, regardless of where you are on your current career path. And with only 25 miles between the city and nearby Atlanta, commuters often find that Alpharetta real estate listings offer a great chance to keep their work and home lives separate.

No matter what you're in the market for, there is an Alpharetta new home or Alpharetta condo perfectly suited for your lifestyle. Rely on Ed Thomasson’s expertise to find you an exclusive neighborhood with golf and tennis facilities or a single family home with immediate access to the great outdoors.
