Newnan, a charming city located just 40 minutes southwest of Atlanta, is experiencing significant growth and rising popularity as the Atlanta metropolitan area continues to expand. Over the past two years, Coweta County has added 1,900 new homes, with the increasing popularity of East Coweta High School playing a significant role in this growth. Newnan’s residential expansion is led in part by Kolter Homes as they are adding two new home communities.
John Hunt, Principal and Chief Analyst at MarketNsight, stated, “The thriving job market in Newnan, coupled with the entrance of Millennials into the housing market, has exacerbated the existing housing shortage, making it even more challenging.” According to Hunt, an additional 2,000 homes are needed in Coweta County to restore the housing inventory to normal levels.
The market’s strength is evident in the 21% increase in home values within a year, with the average new home price reaching $520,000.
The surge in housing development has also given rise to thriving shopping areas, such as Ashley Park, a mixed-use open-air center. Ashley Park boasts a diverse selection of over 60 upscale shops, restaurants, and a 14-screen Regal Cinemas, attracting both locals and visitors.
To meet the demand for active adult homes in Newnan, Kolter Homes has introduced two new communities: Cresswind at Spring Haven and Oak Hill Reserve.
Cresswind at Spring Haven is an expansive master-planned community that will feature 700 homes, an exclusive clubhouse for residents, and a wide range of outdoor amenities upon completion. Andrew Hitch, Community Director for Kolter Homes at Cresswind at Spring Haven, expressed their commitment to creating vibrant and active communities for adults. Hitch stated, “Our aim is to offer residents an experience reminiscent of a cruise ship, where they can enjoy diverse amenities and lifestyle programs curated by award-winning professionals, fostering an environment for connections, wellness, and engagement.”
The heart of this community is Club Cresswind, referred to as the “cruise ship” experience, which is the resident-only clubhouse. This amenity center will include a lounge area, event spaces, a social and game room, a state-of-the-art Cresswind SmartFIT Training Center powered by EGYM, a cardio studio, and an arts and crafts room. A full-time lifestyle director will oversee various clubs and activities to promote an active and engaging lifestyle. Outdoor amenities will consist of pickleball and tennis courts, a resort-style pool with sundeck and sun shelves, as well as inviting spaces for outdoor socializing, events, and concerts.
Prospective buyers interested in the 55+ lifestyle offered at Cresswind at Spring Haven are encouraged to join the VIP list, granting them priority access to exclusive details and invitations for special community previews.
For those seeking a more intimate community, Oak Hill Reserve offers 43 home sites, with homes starting from the $400,000s. Kolter Homes presents the Carson and Hepburn collections, featuring eight unique floor plans ranging from approximately 1,665 to over 2,800 square feet of living space. Flexibility is a hallmark of Kolter Homes, and these new one-story floor plans offer options for bonus rooms, fitness and study conversions, extended owner suites, lanais, in-law suites, and more.
Designed as an age-restricted community, Oak Hill Reserve is ideal for active adults in search of a home that fulfills all their needs. Community amenities include an outdoor pavilion, a community garden, a flower garden, and a walking path. Residents will also enjoy convenient access to shopping, dining, and pickleball action at the nearby Newnan House of Pickleball.
Oak Hill Reserve’s prime feature is its strategic location near Newnan Crossing, Newnan Promenade, and Ashley Park. With easy connections to I-85, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is a mere 30-minute drive away, while downtown Atlanta is only 40 minutes away for those seeking urban adventures.
