Featured Neighborhood: Creekstone Point (Cumming, GA)

Creekstone Point

“Relaxation, serenity and seclusion: They’re all at home in Creekstone Point.” – SR Homes

Active adult communities are becoming increasingly popular, especially in suburban Atlanta. Suburban lifestyle with proximity to a major city and airport make this an attractive option for those heading into retirement but looking to travel, be near family and enjoy amenities.

I have more than a decade experience selling homes in the northern suburbs of Atlanta and I’m happy to report on new and exciting opportunities. Allow me to introduce you to Creekstone Point, a new 55-plus community in South Forsyth Co.

Pre-sale opportunities began at Creekstone July 8.

The neighborhood features ranch-style, master-on-main homes, a clubhouse and gym. The community is gated and, according to Creekstone Point, “built for luxury.” Conveniently located off 141 near GA-400, this community is less than an hour from downtown. New shopping and entertainment venues have also popped up in the area, adding to the convenience.
