Peachtree Residential has heard Forsyth County homebuyers asking for more intimate neighborhoods located in more accessible locations with stronger schools. With Garden Park in West Forsyth, we deliver.
With just 28 homes, Garden Park is a small cul-de-sac community. Flat terrain, sidewalks and an open space with creek create a walkable environment. Gated access maintains the neighborhood’s privacy.
And while the community feels like its own isolated enclave, its location off West Forsyth’s Aaron Sosebee Road gives families easy access to work, school, shopping and fun. It’s easy to reach local shopping and dining in Halcyon or The Collection in Forsyth via Bethelview Road. Another popular destination is the historic district, accessible from nearby Kelly Mill Road, which runs straight through downtown Cumming. Highway 20, Highway 141, and GA 400 are within easy reach, too. (more…)
