Located in Fulton County, just a short drive from the city of Alpharetta, Roswell and its small-town and historical charms continue to attract real estate investors from all over the country. Despite its humble beginnings, the city has steadily risen to become one of the best places to live in the country – just ask CNN!
Although its past as a rural enclave has not been forgotten, the Roswell of the olden days is gone. Today it’s a thriving community with extensive growth, great schools, easy access to major cities, and a variety of recreational pursuits. To top its many accolades, Roswell has also been ranked by City Crime Rankings as one of the safest cities in the United States, and it is known for its excellent schools.
Roswell’s outstanding quality of life can be enjoyed by a great many thanks to its diverse housing options. Single-family homes, the majority of which exude classical design influences, are scattered throughout the city. Townhomes, condominiums, and country club residences are also available. The real treat, however, like most of the communities in Metro Atlanta, is the local collection of fine luxury homes and equestrian properties that will please even the most discreet home buyer.
Roswell’s luxury homes are tasteful and timeless, available in different architectural designs that can range from Colonial Revivals to more modern sensibilities. Equestrian properties, on the other hand, feature significant acreage that leaves plenty of room for your horses and other recreational activities. Neighborhoods in Roswell include Willow Springs, Horseshoe Bend, Atherton Park, Litchfield Hundred, Stonegrove, Windfaire, Glen Ayre, The Manor, and Brookfield Country Club.
For a real taste of historic Roswell, however, head down to the downtown historic district and see for yourself the city’s grand collection of historic homes as well as wonderful shopping! If you’re lucky, some of these residences might be even up for sale. It’s not often you get to own a part of a city’s history.
A well-recognized city, it was named as one of the best places to live in the country by CNN. Roswell has also received a number of other great recognitions. It was named the 6th best place to retire in the U.S. by Black Enterprise magazine and was named a bicycle-friendly community in 2006 by the League of American Bicyclists. Roswell is also a “Gold Certified Green Community” by the Atlanta Regional Commission and a designated “City of Excellence” by the George Municipal Association.
