It’s what we do. Pick up a book if you don’t believe it. Whether you prefer history or fiction, the story of Atlanta is that we constantly reinvent ourselves. What started as survival became part of our charm, and now we wouldn’t have it any other way. Atlanta’s robust and diversified economy comes in handy at any turn of economic history, and this is proving true again today.
As the effects of pandemic precautions settle into a mixture of resolution and ongoing awareness, the variety of lifestyles that are met admirably by the array of Atlanta homes for sale present unusually good options. The trend to urbanization we have been watching for decades and the renewed impulse to explore suburban living – now that work-from-home careers make commuting a non-issue for many households – are equally opportune.
Standing Out and Fitting In
Thanks to the work of a particularly respected home builder on the scene today, Monte Hewett, homebuyers can take their choice without the tradeoffs and compromises that might have come with these decisions in times past. With a finished quality that has been described as custom building without the custom cost, Monte Hewett standards are compared to other builders’ upgrades.
The distinctions between city and suburb are growing less dramatic. The term “urban suburbs” is gaining currency among planners and architects. What’s more, communities that connect directly to urban values, yet still retain their own history and heritage are increasingly popular among the world’s great cities. Atlanta offers several leading examples of this.
There Ought to Be a Better Term
Planners and architects use the term “urban suburb” to describe the kind of town that treasures its own history and heritage and yet stands in easy reach of the advantages of one of the world’s great cities. To us, urban suburb sounds as if somebody couldn’t make up their mind. We prefer to call these hometowns, and the Atlanta area offers an outstanding array of them.
About a half-hour from Midtown, Alpharetta has for many years been the choice of people who want to stay immersed in the economic, educational, and artistic advantages of Atlanta, yet come home to a different scene. The selection of Alpharetta homes for sale emerge as an admirable image of the urban suburb. The Historic District and town-like feel are being blended into homes, such as those built by Monte Hewett, through designs that preserve the authentic while offering more people the chance to experience it.
The homes for sale in Roswell are long established as a haven for history and heritage within easy reach of the economic advantages of Buckhead and even Midtown. Reynoldstown, too, fulfills this impulse in its own distinctive way, and both communities are graced with the work of Monte Hewett.
Just Call it Home
The sense of authenticity and heritage that radiates from the towns in Atlanta’s orbit are supported by more than architecture – not only by what the town is, but also by what it does. The connection among residents reflects the values of a true community, including their willingness and ability to work together.
Farmers markets, food drives, senior centers for multi-generational households, festivals, and celebrations are just a few examples of the discoveries that reward people who might initially be attracted by the beauty and proximity of what we call “hometowns” rather than urban suburbs.
