McEver Mill Under Development

Vinings-based Jim Chapman Communities, metro Atlanta’s premier 55+ homebuilder, is completing development two new active adult communities and beginning pre-sales onsite. The first is McEver Mill in Hall County, just a mile from Lake Lanier. The community includes 105 ranch villas attractively priced from the low $200s. Perimeter landscaping and fencing are currently being installed and a temporary sales office will open on site by early February for pre-sales. The models will start construction along with multiple inventory units in February.

"The first wave of retired or semi-retired Baby Boomers is fueling a huge demand for affordable, low-maintenance, single-level homes," said Jim Chapman, CEO of Jim Chapman Communities. "McEver Mill’s location close to Lake Lanier and Gainesville means residents can enjoy both affordability as well as recreation, shopping, dining and more. Plus the homes will feature some of the best elevations I have ever offered. They are just really cute looking!"

Each 1,400-square-foot, 1.5 story attached ranch villa includes a spacious, open floor plan with master on main, master bathroom, a single-car garage, two additional bedrooms with two baths, covered front and back porches and individual driveways. The homes are designed for aging in place with wider doorways, ample maneuvering space in showers and zero-step entries from the garages into the homes. Homes are traditionally styled with shake, board and batten, stone and brick facades. Inside, homeowners can choose from a number of special features to truly make the home their own.

"McEver Mill has what many active adult buyers want: an attractively-priced, age-restricted community in a great location, featuring thoughtful design and easy access to numerous local amenities," said Chapman. "I want to invite people to visit our website and sign up on our VIP list to receive updated information. Also, please come take a look at what we’re offering at this beautiful new development!"

Jim Chapman Communities is also completing development of Dawson Ridge, an age-restricted, 193-home active adult community in north Georgia near Dawsonville. The new community is located on Lumpkin Campground Road just north of Georgia 400 and Highway 53, with easy access to the North Georgia Premium Outlets and Lake Lanier. Pre-selling has begun at the temporary sales office on site, and construction of the model homes will start in early February 2019.

"There is a huge demand for active adult communities that offer quality home construction at an attractive price," said Chapman. "Dawson Ridge features one and a half story ranch villas with one-car attached garages. The three bedroom, three bath homes are priced in the low to mid $200s, but still have that upscale feeling with master on the main, covered front and back porches and rich stone and brick exteriors. And, of course, buyers can choose designer upgrades for flooring, cabinets, countertops and more."

The homes are designed for aging in place with wider doorways, ample maneuvering space in showers and zero-step entries from the garages into the homes. Dawson Ridge residents will enjoy onsite amenities including a clubhouse with a covered outdoor area with fireplace.

"I invite anyone who is interested to visit our website and sign up on the VIP list to receive updated information," said Chapman. "Also, now is the perfect time to meet with our agents in the onsite sales trailer at Dawson Ridge. Come see why we’re so excited about this beautiful new active adult community!"
