Oak Mountain is a golf club  surrounded by a beautiful planned community in Carrollton Georgia, located about 45 to the West of Atlanta and near the Alabama line.  Carrollton's population is about 30,000 people in the city proper incorporated in 1829, home to the University of West Georgia and was named after Charles Carroll of the town, who was the last signer of the Declaration of Independence alive at the time.The golf club itself https://www.oakmountainchampionshipgolf.com/  is a semi private/ public course with reasonable fees.  Market data for homes in the area suggest different price points for home sizes and locations.  Homes right on the golf course or the water with larger footprints will obviously be selling for more, where as the smaller homes set further out in surrounding ...

Peachtree City is located in Fayette County between Newnan to the East, Atlanta & Tyrone to the North, Senoia to the South and Fayetteville to the West.  The current population is more than 6 times what it was back in the 80's and it continued to explode in growth through the 90's and early 2000's to it's present population of around 37,000.  Some may disagree with my analysis on amount of cars on the roads, but during my visit today I was driving in after school rush hour and traffic really wasn't an obstacle at all, in fact I marveled at how smoothly it flowed.  I think what really makes Newnan-Peachtree City-Senoia area attractive as part of the metro Atlanta area, is it's lack of extreme congestion that you might find in other parts of the metro.  Moreover the city is really known f...

Locally Owned and Operated Coffee Shops like Percolate Coffee and Boutigue seem to have so much uniqueness about them that you just don't find in a chain store, that's why two best friends decided to go into business this past year to create an independent coffee house on the East side of Newnan.  Located at Summer grove's Market Square, Percolate Coffee and Boutique, 21 Market Square Way, Suite 102, Newnan Ga, 30265 opened up with a goal in mind to provide a welcoming atmosphere for folks to enjoy a terrific coffee drink, maybe a muffin or two and hang out. When I frequent a coffee house, I like to know where the beans come from and a little about the roaster.  Aundrea (one of the owner's) said that they get their coffee from an in State Coffee Roaster, Jumpin Goat Coffee.  First off, ...

Not everyone has such a gem right in their back yard practically, and yet right here in Peachtree City at the county line is one of the area's most beautiful recreation areas.  The trail at Line Creek Nature Area is the main attraction ad begins from the Northern trail head in an hardwood forested area heading towards the creek from the parking area towards granite outcroppings, and even some areas where the creak runs fairly swift over the rocks creating a pleasant sound as you walk nearby.  The trail bordered by some ferns, various ivy like plants and azaleas.  This hike is a pleasant one of a little over a mile each direction.  At the Northern part of the park, you will encounter a bit more terrain including rocks, and tree roots.  I'd recommend good outdoor hiking shoes for this are...

Located on Whitewater Creek, a few miles to the Northwest of Senoia Georgia is Starr's Mill and the Starr's Mil Park.  It was named after Hilliard Starr who owned the mill back in the 1800's.  Many will recognize the mill from scenes in "Sweet Home Alabama".The original structure burned down and the one you see now was built in 1907.  Starr's Mill Had a cotton gin and an electric generator powering nearby Senoia.  Most mills of the time used a water wheel whereas this one used a turbine to grind up corn and cut wood in the sawmill.The park itself is beautiful, and offers places to park, with pick nick tables, grassy areas, and a trail along the reservoir pictured above, part of Whitewater Creek.A few miles to the Southwest of Starr's Mill is downtown Senoia Georgia, featuring shops, res...

Located about 6 miles North of Newnan in the Roscoe area, along State Highway 70 otherwise known as Roscoe Road, lies a real treasure, once a vibrant splendor nearly a century ago.  Having fallen into decay and disarray for more than forty years the gardens have been rediscovered by the current owners, and brought to life again.  Tremendous care has obviously gone into it's restoration,  plus lots of sweat turning it into the stunning setting that it is today.  Dunaway Gardens comes with a rich history, much of it available at the official website: https://dunawaygardens.com/   The more you read about it the more fascinating the whole place becomes.From the moment you step out of your car and onto one of the paths heading towards unspeakable beauty you're almost swept right off of your ...

I look at monthly statistics for the town I live in and am always amazed at what they tell me. From the information presented above it is very clear that we have very little inventory, hence the .9 month supply. Looking back at July numbers the Days on Market increased by 1 from 5 to 6. I wonder if this is just a statistical aberation or the market has begun early stages of cooling off. Other data tells me we are beginning a real estate slow down. Still brisk, just not as brisky.

Set up in a similar fashion to the Market Day held earlier this weekend, the Art Festival did in fact feature more arts and crafts.  A little warmer and somewhat more humid than Saturday but overall a beautiful day to stroll around the square and check out the arts and crafts. The First thing that drew my attention was a young woman painting a house. Her name is Britney Childs, a local artist who paints all kinds of things, but mostly buildings and houses in water color.  We got to talking and she says she paints quite a few homes for REALTORS as closing gifts for their client's new homes.What a great idea!  As it turns out, I already own a couple of prints of her originals (one of the Courthouse and the other of the library) I had bought at the Art Store located on South Court Square. ...

Lake Redwine also known as Lake Redwine Plantation is a 300+ acre lake located in Coweta County Georgia.  There are several developments in the area, including the North Shore and South Shore areas; each with it's own HOA.  The lake is available to the residents and includes a variety of amenities including boating, and fishing.  There are pools managed by the associations and there are plenty of trails, parks and other activities for residents.In terms of the current market review information, obviously properties right on the water are going to price out differently than something without any waterfront or water views.  Other factors of course can vary in terms of home prices including size, location, quality of interior, date of build, curb appeal etc...as a general snapshot then of ...

Brown's Reservoir in Northern Coweta County Georgia, is one of the main sources of drinking water for the Newnan area.  It is managed by the Coweta County Water and Sewage Authority.  The above picture is taken from the boat launch at the park available for Coweta County residents.  There are some rules however, No motorized boats except for electric prowlers and paddles.  No rubber or vinyl rafts.  No gas tanks or cans.  Fishing is only permitted from boat and the park has open and closed hours.  The lake itself is quite large, about 300 acres or so and serves as the centerpiece for the Water's Edge community.  The community appears to be firmly established, and by the looks of the housing market data in the area it's well sought after.  Nothing at Water's Edge Estates or the Enclave, ...

Located Southwest of Atlanta by about a half hour or so and between Palmetto and Newnan just a mile from Exit 51 off I-85 is the 1,500 acre luxury development and golf course community of Arbor Crest.  Within the development you will find various subset neighborhoods with variety of sized homes ranging from several thousand square feet on up into 6,000 square feet or so.  Out of respect for the personal property of the home owners I did not get pictures of some of the stunning homes you will find at Arbor Crest and I do want to emphasize the word "stunning" to the point where it almost takes your breath away.  Then as you turn a bend in the road and climb over the next hill there in front of you is another gorgeous home even more beautiful than the last one you set eyes on.   Most of th...

The next time you tune in to your favorite country station and the DJ is playing "Way Down Yonder on the Chattahoochee", by Newnan Native Alan Jackson, or you happen to hear it in between innings at an Atlanta Braves game, this is the same muddy water the country star sings about and quite possibly the very location that inspired the lyrics to that number one record.  This is also the location for one of Georgia's largest and newest parks. Park History:  The property was previously owned by Georgia Power and timber companies with several hundred acres of tree in the area.  Area residents got together and purchased the property along with funds from Coweta county elected officials and this lead to the creation of the State Park in 2011Riverside Trail Hike:  The park boasts more than 12 m...

Finally I got to go to Newnan's Market Day!  For me the square has always been a special place.  I still remember that cold Fall Day; It was October 29th of 1986 and my parents and I had came up from Fort Lauderdale Florida to look for houses and immediately fell in love with Newnan.  The leaves were still falling, and the pumpkins were out.  I guess we liked the square because my Dad's childhood home, and that of my Grandparents out in Rupert Idaho had a town square.  Since then the square is even more vibrant and now with a successful street fair!   It was the perfect day too, with low humidity levels and a comfortable 74 degrees.   As you can see, there were lots of people out.Market Day is every first Saturday of the month between the months of April and December right in downtown N...
