Active Adult Lifestyle a Success at Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge

Brookhaven at Lanier RidgeJim Chapman Communities is excited to announce that Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge is closing on seven homes this month and has just four homes remaining. Priced from the $280,000s, the 88 original homes did not last long, and now the exclusively 55-plus active adult community is nearly complete.

Of the four available homes at Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge, three are Abbey floor plans and one is an Oxford floor plan. The Abbey, a three bedroom, two bath design with a generous 10’ x 20’ screened porch, is a luxurious and spacious home with 1,875 heated square feet and a private sitting room/office space distinct from the main living room.

As a two bedroom, two bath home, the Oxford is a bit smaller with 1,625 heated square feet, but more than compensates with two ground floor master bedroom suites. The Oxford also includes a screened porch directly off of the living room, and both designs include a two-car garage with a kitchen entrance.

These homes and the others built by Jim Chapman Communities are designed to be low-maintenance yet aesthetically appealing, elegant homes for active adults who want an involved, mature, private community.

“We believe in ‘Well Earned Elegance’ at our communities,” said Kelly Dempsey, vice president of sales and marketing at Jim Chapman Communities. “Residents choose these homes because of the atmosphere we create. Many of our residents have retired and want an engaged, healthy and elegant place to live without sacrificing their privacy or being forced into a hectic pace of life again. Our communities offer them that.”

Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge features a perimeter fence and entry gate for increased security, and a pool, gas grill, clubhouse, exercise room and catering kitchen are available to all residents for entertaining or personal use.

Located in Forsyth County, Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge is conveniently close to Lake Lanier, the Mall of Georgia, North Georgia Premium Outlets, the Cumming Playhouse, Cumming Marketplace, Webb Bridge Park and other attractions.
