Among the variety of Atlanta homes for sale, some locations shine especially brightly in the holiday season. In fact, if anyone decides to re-make the Christmas movie classic, It’s A Wonderful Life, the new location for filming the fabled Bedford Falls might well be nearby Alpharetta. Although snow is rare, the twinkling lights are abundant – and movie-making skills could bring all the snow they need anyway. What’s harder to duplicate is the small-town, neighborly feel and the community spirit that are tangible here. As a home builder who has proven adept at providing the settings for this spirit, new Monte Hewett homes have added to the special feeling that has made Alpharetta a choice of discerning homebuyers.
Sharing a Season of Celebration
The spirit of Alpharetta gives this season a flavor all its own. From carolers and a Christmas tree lighting to strolling holiday characters and roasting marshmallows around a warm fire, traditions are not forgotten here, but kept alive and new with each generation. With or without a special event, historic Alpharetta still presents a magical winter village to residents and shoppers and visitors alike.
A holiday food drive through December 17 makes it easy to share the blessings, too, with collection points at City Hall and several other convenient locations, such as the Arts Center, the Wills Park Rec Center, the Adult Activity Center at North Park, and at the Alpharetta Presbyterian Church, and First Baptist Church. The season of giving goes all around.
Lighting a Time of Cheer
All around, too, are the joys of holiday lights on homes and in neighborhoods throughout Alpharetta. For many, a family drive through Alpharetta with carols on the radio, is a tradition, a memory to be renewed each year, and the residents of Alpharetta make it rewarding, indeed. It is said that as many as 300 area homes are lighted for the season, and some even play their own soundtracks.
On December 11, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Saturday morning Alpharetta Farmers Market takes on a special holiday gusto. The gifts, home crafts and décor, and poinsettia displays from more than 70 artisans make gathering there a kind of daytime holiday party. The farm-to-table produce inspires holiday meals that family and friends will remember with pleasure. And like all of Alpharetta’s charms, the holiday season at the Farmers Market is just one piece of a celebration that takes place all year long. The homes for sale in Alpharetta can count this spirit among their many advantages, and it’s a feature that doesn’t begin and end with the holiday season. Let’s get together and talk about a lifestyle that embraces the best of this and every season. Just call us at 404-459-6080 or find out more at montehewett.com.
