Divorcees, single moms, first-time buyers, and active adults are finding an incredible value for their dollar at the Springlake Cove project in Lawrenceville, Ga. "Potential buyers are shocked they can live in a gated community for this price range," says Mike Miller, on-site sales manager for the community. "Residents have a sense of security and a great deal of pride in the attention to detail for the aesthetics," says Miller. And what a gate it is: $20,000 was spent on the gated entrance alone.
Originally zoned for condominiums or apartments, county regulations allowed single-family detached units as long as the homes remained a condo-type ownership. Yard maintenance is included in the $90 per month homeowner's association fee, perfect for busy lifestyles. Amenities include a swimming pool and playground.
It's also an Atlanta commuter's dream. The city is only 30 miles away. The Golden Corridor, a concentrated area of new office space, is drawing high-tech employers and is just five miles away.
