Georgia is often recognized for its Southern hospitality. It’s a term that evokes an image of a glass of sweet tea glistening in a highball with its slow drops of condensation falling onto a coaster resting on a wooden table on a wrap-around porch of a Victorian-style home. And, as each drop from the sweating glass is drips onto the coaster, a hand-whittled rocking chair creaks in almost perfect harmony. The unintentional rhythm is layered with a slow breeze still strong enough to bend wild sunflowers in the distance. It’s a moment of bliss.
What sounds like a live painting, is a typical day in Acworth, GA. Not even the summertime heat surpasses the warmth of the community, especially when speaking about Patten Companies, a recognized leader in resort-style land development, opening up the opportunity to own property in Governor’s Towne Club, North Atlanta’s most luxurious and private golf community.
“I support Patten Companies and welcome them to Acworth, Georgia. We are and have been the fastest growing city in Cobb County, just a great, great life,” said Acworth Mayor Tommy Allegood. “Our quality of life has been the secret to our success. We have place where people want to move and visit.”
He stands proudly with Patten Properties efforts to work with Ken Horton, the original developer of Governor’s Towne Club, to revitalize the stunning gated community.
Among the exceptional amenities, like a PGA champion designed 18-hole golf course, a spa, pro shop, eight tennis courts, a baseball field, a theater, game room, and a pool with a water slide, it is in Cobb County, Georgia’s biggest and most revered county.
The Cobb County town was named the All-American City in 2010 by The National Civic Association and was recognized in Sperling’s Best Places. To earn such a title, factors like the economy, cost of living, real estate and school quality were considered.
According to Sperling’s quick facts, the unemployment rate is 6.10 percent, which is below the national average. In fact, its job creation is up nearly 2 percent. Despite its rapid growth, it’s cost of living is 2.5 percent, which is still lower than the U.S. average. Since 2000 the secret of the small-town charm with big city amenities just 45-min north of Atlanta is out. The city has seen a surge in population growth, nearly 40 percent growth.
The Cobb County school system is also nationally recognized as one of the best in the country. It has 17 high schools and nine have received silver, gold and bronze medals by U.S. News and World Report best High Schools rankings.
Even from a financial real estate perspective, home appreciation is up 17 percent in the last 12 months, according to Sperling’s, making it a perfect time to get in while the market is hot and stunning property is available.
