We are in a community that will have a total of 130 residences. Perfect size! It's tucked away in a treed, small area of Grayson, Georgia and is a gem! I would describe the community like a very small town! Lots of beautifully landscaped common areas and homes. It doesn't resemble your typical subdivision. We have a small club house that residents use for meetings, cards, exercising, parties,etc....and it has a lovely pool.
Within a 5 mile radius there is every shop/store you can think of. Sprouts opened a lovely store last summer and Fresh Market is coming early next winter. AND we have three (3) Paneras and can walk to Kroger's. Restaurants are everywhere.....All in all it's perfect.
We have all new doctors and we don't have to drive to Atlanta. No more I-75 traffic hang-ups!
MC has been selected to serve on the Gwinnett County Board of Equalization. It's right up his ally! They hear homeowners appeals regarding their tax assessments. He works one or two days a week and actually gets PAID!!! He is also Chairman of our community's Architectural Control Committee, whose initial task was developing guide lines for the outside additions homeowners wish to do. He's perfect on this committee. With all his experience with Sun City's Architectural Committee he was able to contribute a great deal. All this, and he has gone along with all my crazy design ideas. Oh, his favorite place to go ....a very large Library..... just down the street!
I spend my time on our Communications Committee and write articles for our newsletter. I'm also in the process of starting a book club. I "put it out there" to see if there was any interest and so far it's favorable. I think we'll wait for the Fall to get it off the ground. AND OF COURSE, I am ALWAYS MOVING THE FURNITURE!!! The new table, that I won, has been moved and has been restyled three times! As with all my pieces, it looks great everywhere!
Our Terrace has been screened!
Our contractor was:
He did a fantastic job and we recommend him highly.
MC reminded me I left out the BEST attribute! Our real estate taxes are 1/3 of what they were in Sun City!!! Gwinnett County exempts their seniors 100% from school taxes!
