Sandy Springs was once a small town north of Atlanta GA.Â As the area grew, Sandy Springs became part of the Atlanta metro area but managed to stay unique with it’s own identityÂ and the long term residents stayed.Â Now Sandy Springs has become it’s own city and is under going rejuvenation. Then new city managers are doing a lot of positive things. It is almost like the old song Doraville, a little bit of country in the city.
Many of the long time residents are now empty nesters and entering retirement age. They are stepping down from their large homes but want to stay local, as they like living in Sandy Springs.Â We visited one new community, City Walk Heights in Sandy Springs, Â recently and the manager tells us many of the new owners are locals stepping down from their large homes but still want a quality home in Sandy Springs. We we quite impressed with the location, next to the new City Heights shopping area off Hammond Drive. The community has town homes and condos.Â We looked at a town home with an elevator. The condo we viewed was one level. All had high 10 foot ceiling, hardwood floors, open kitchens and we very sound proof.
