Enclave at Vinings

The Enclave at Vinings is a wonderful community situated just behind the West Village in Smyrna, established in 1999.  The homes in the Enclave are traditional in style and welcoming in nature.  A fabulous community due to the people and the location.  If you are looking for a community that is walking distance to restaurants, shops, fitness facility and more – this is it!  You are literally steps away from the fabulous live, work, play community.  People come from all over to enjoy their coffee at Starbucks, pizza at Blue Moon or family night at MacCray’s Tavern.  Just as close is the John Wieland live, work, play community One Ivy Walk.  Enjoy brunch at J Christopher’s, drinks at Soth city Kitchen or get dolled up at Hand in Pocket.

The homes in the Enclave at Vinings are built by award winning builder Ashton Woods.  Ashton Woods builds a fantastic product with very functional floor plans.  The Enclave’s typical price range is in the mid $300’s to high $400k’s peaking close to $500k at the height of the market.

Buyers flock to this area for its close proximity to the West Village and One Ivy Walk, but also for its easy access to 285, 75, and even I-20.  If your commute is towards the airport, buckhead, midtown or downtown you are just an easy 20 minutes from it all!

Chastain Park Sandy Springs Atlanta

The Chastain Park is more of an “area” or community than an actually subdivision.  Chastain Park the community is fondly named after the actual 268 acre park that is situated right in the middle of the “Chastain Area”.  The park was developed in the early 1940’s.  Chastain Park was originally farmland, however it has since turned into a major recreation facility.  Many of the current facilities include the Chastain Park Amphitheater, swimming pool, baseball/football fields, stables, picnic areas and lakes.

As you can imagine, with all this park has to offer, real estate is prime near Chastain!  You can often find residents riding on their golf carts from their home to the ball fields.  The real estate options are endless.  From adorable ranches in the $400,000 to brand new mansions above $3M.  There is something for everyone in the Chastain Park area.

The wedge-shaped park is bounded on the east side by Lake Forrest Drive, on the west-southwest side by Powers Ferry Road, and on the north-northwest end by West Wieuca Road. It is bisected in the middle by Nancy Creek, flowing from east to west. The community itself is actually half in Sandy Springs and half in city of Atlanta.

If you purchase a home on the city of Atlanta side the school system is Warren T. Jackson elementary, Sutton Middle, and North Atlanta High School.  If your home falls on the Sandy Springs side you feed into Heards Ferry, Ridgeview and Riverwood High school.

If you are looking to go the private school route, it is a quick drive to Holy Innocents Episcopal School, Marist School, Holy Spirit, The Epstein School, Galloway, and Mount Vernon Presbyterian.  Chastain Park is such an amazing location with easy access to Sandy Springs or the restaurants of Lenox and Buckhead, you’re truly close to it all!  You are minutes from all your shopping needs with Whole Foods, Target, Publix, and so much more.   Excellent dining choices like Hal’s, Horseradish Grill, Blue Point, Flying Biscuit, 5 Season’s Brewery, Enzo, Brooklyn Café and the list goes on!

Whether your goal is to find a home to renovate and refurbish or an immaculately restored home, Chastain Park should be top on your real estate list.

Vinings Estates Homes

The Vinings Estates community is one of the largest communities in the Vinings Smyrna area (and really Mableton!). If you are looking for a fabulous swim and tennis subdivision then put Vinings Estates on your list.  Vinings Estates boasts a whopping 3 swimming pools and is home to ALTA tennis.  The main pool is known for its swimming team, 3 story slide, and the club house.  Ideal for hosting parties, neighborhood events, and community meetings.  If you don’t feel like swimming or playing tennis you may also enjoy the basketball courts!

John Wieland is the original developer and builder of Vinings Estates and it took him over 15 years to build the entire community.  Vinings Estates has over 700 homes ranging in price from the mid $300k’s to above $1,000,000.  In theory there is something for everyone!  John Wieland is one of the most sought after builders in the area and is known for his traditional southern style homes.

John Wieland and City of Smyrna worked very hard to make Vinings Estates be the type of community you would never want to leave.  It has the feel of resort style living with its master-planned amenities, homes and townhomes, and you are convenient to it all.

Just minutes to the East/West Connector, the Silver Comet Trail, I-285, the airport and more!  Vinings Estates is zoned for Nickajack elementary school, Griffin Middle and Campbell High.  Whitefield Academy is right outside the back entrance of Vinings Estates as a private school option.

We often joke that Vinings Estates has a little bit of everything – Vinings in the name, districted into City of Smyrna, and a Mableton address.  If you are looking for a wonderful swim/tennis community Vinings Estates could be the one for you.
