ATLANTA, GA – Last time Jim Chapman Communities built homes near Woodstock Georgia, they won a national award for both their clubhouse and their model. With that success, it is no wonder Jim Chapman was so eager to get back there.

“Woodstock has always been one of the most desirable areas of Atlanta in which to live,” says Jim Chapman, President of Jim Chapman Communities. “It is convenient to Atlanta and has a wonderfully vibrant downtown with top drawer restaurants and retail. The problem these days is land is harder and harder to find. We have been looking for a long time. We finally found a beautiful 67 acre site that was a former working farm, closed on it in October and are excited to be developing it now. Model home construction will begin in mid-January 2016 with full bore home construction starting in late spring and finished home deliveries starting in September 2016.”

This new Active Adult community is called Sweet Briar Farms, and it will be located on Trickum Road, just north of Arnold Mill Road. The homes will have all of the components that make JCC homes so popular. And, picture this setting. There are 85 foot wide lots with a beautiful walking trail running between Mill Creek and a picturesque farm pond. There will be community gardens, a clubhouse (something JCC is renowned for) with a large meeting room, catering kitchen, exercise room, card room and a crystal clear swimming pool. Sweet Briar Farms will be a gated community of 85 Active Adult, age-restricted, ranch style homes, some available with basement, all with side entry garages and a third car option.

As for the homes themselves, Jim Chapman designs superbly livable and incredibly popular, low maintenance, ranch style homes that are famous for fine detail, spacious floor plans, vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, granite countertops, custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. Every Sweet Briar Farms home will comply with the ALL Home Program, promoting accessibility via wider doorways, ample maneuvering space in showers and zero-step entries from the garage into the home. Pre-selling will begin in January from an onsite sales trailer and with price points from the mid $300’s, sales should be brisk.

Jim Chapman Communities has developed successful Active Adult communities throughout greater Atlanta including Brookhaven at Johns Creek, Brookhaven at Sugarloaf, Brookhaven of East Cobb, Brookhaven at Lanier Ridge and The Haven at Slater Mill. These Active Adult communities have made Jim Chapman one of the foremost experts on this market segment and one of the larger privately held home builders in Atlanta. His neighborhoods feature outstanding amenities, charming character, architecture with “personality” and a keen attention to detail.
