Downtown Alpharetta

If you pass through downtown Alpharetta these days, you can’t miss the changes taking place.  The entire downtown area is going through a major renewal with the striking new City Hall at the center of it all.  Downtown Alpharetta has morphed from a tiny sleepy small town to a hip, vibrant, walkable community.  There is a new shop or restaurant opening up just about every month, and there are more to come!  Downtown Alpharetta has a lot going on, and you’ll want to make sure you visit Alpharetta if you are looking for real estate in the North Metro Atlanta area.


If you are new to the Metro Atlanta area, Avalon is not to be missed.  This new live, work play development is a destination in its own right.  With its boutique hotel, million-dollar houses, and chic lofts, Avalon has housing options to please just about everyone.  Avalon is not just about real estate though…Avalon is trendy boutiques, big name-stores, and restaurants running the gamut from pizza to gourmet steaks.  You can walk into Avalon in a coat and tie or shorts and sandals, and you’ll fit in just fine!  Avalon hosts several events weekly and is home to a movie theater, an outdoor ice skating rink, fireworks shows, concerts and annual celebrations like Mardi Gras and the lighting of the tree.


Alpharetta and neighboring Milton are home to some of the top schools in the state of Georgia.  Milton High School, Northwestern Middle School, and Alpharetta Elementary, serve the area for Fulton County Public Schools and there are also private school options such as St. Francis, King’s Ridge and River’s Academy.  These schools of excellence are part of the reason Alpharetta has had such long-standing popularity among parents of young children.
