MILTON, Ga. — The Manor, a luxurious community located on Hopewell Road, has seen consistent home sales in the past few years.
“In the last year, we’ve had over 15 homes sell in the community,” Bob Keith, the Manor’s board chairman, said. “And that doesn’t include re-sales.”
The gated, upscale golf and tennis community built in 2000 consists of 150 homes priced from $1 million.
Keith said the recession didn’t have a big impact on the Manor and home sales have stayed strong.
“We’re seeing an even greater boost in new home sales, with many already under construction,” he said.
As the featured agent for about 85 of the new lots for sale in the community, Julie Allan of Waterstone Realty Company knows the Manor well.
“The sales rate for both lots and homes at the Manor has definitely surged in the past 18 months,” she said. “We have had over a dozen $1 million-plus contracts to build, as well as resale and new spec home sales.”
An additional 85 lots have been purchased by a developer and are already on the market.
Most of these lots will have a view of the 18-hole golf course.
Allan said it’s unlikely another gated golf course community will be developed in the near future.
“People are anxious to secure property in a high-end, amenity-laden community located in an excellent school district like the Manor,” she said.
Keith said the 85 lots are just a portion of land still available.
“There are also an additional 69 lots where roads are being cut in and those will be available soon, too,” Keith said.
“Prices for the lots will run from about $200,000 to $500,000,” Allan said. “Lots in the $500,000 range are those with a lake view.”
Home prices will be in the $1 million to $2 million range.
Tobi Pomerance, of Prudential Georgia Realty, has a home for sale in the Manor.
“This is a wonderful community,” she said. “Most of the residents have young children, and the Manor really caters to a family environment.”
Keith agrees. He said holiday events in the community focus on children.
“We even have a babysitter who watches the children when parents want to have dinner at the country club,” he said.
