Arbor Green 55+ Community
Arbor Green is situated less than one third of a mile west of Marietta Country Club in beautiful Cobb County. This
this 55+ age restricted Active Adult Community offers unrivalled location and is spread over 14.5 acres with only 3
homes per acre. Within a five mile radius there are numerous restaurants, shops, banks, cinemas, a post office, library,
YMCA and the upmarket
Town Center Mall.
The community offers easy access to the I75 and I575 freeways, and is less than 20 minutes
from the I285 Atlanta perimeter freeway, and only 35 minutes from downtown Atlanta.
Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park
is less than 2 miles away, and Lake Acworth,
and Red Top Mountain State Park are all within a short
10 to 15 minute drive from the community.
Arbor Green consists of 44 three-bedroom two-bathroom Patio Homes ranging from approximately 1850 sq. ft. to
more than 2000 sq. ft. All come with high quality appliances (excluding refrigerators) and cabinets (with
dovetailed drawers and a set of pull-out shelves), granite counters and vanity tops, fireplaces with gas logs,
crown moldings, ceiling fans and quality light fittings, and a
tiled shower with a bench in the master bathroom. The 2 car garage includes an insulated double door with remote
opener, with one side deep
enough to accommodate an extended vehicle or boat. A permanent staircase leads from the garage to an unfinished 'bonus'
storage area in the attic above the double garage, where the air-handler is conveniently housed. The community features
underground utilities, streetlights and side walks, a 3 acre park with walking trails and a
covered open-air pavilion (to be built).
All Arbor Green Homes are built to Energy Star® standards. This requires extensive third-party inspections during
and after construction to ensure all seals, insulation materials and ducts are installed according to Energy
Start® regulations. As energy costs continue to escalate, an Energy Star® rating will help keep energy costs
manageable and contribute towards an increase in the home's value over time.
Additional features that are not readily observable but which contribute significantly
to the value of these homes are the interior copper water lines, the individually metered water supply for
each individual home, the heavily reinforced vinyl liner under the foundation of each home, and the 2 hour
fire wall between living spaces (the county burn through requirement is only 1 hour).
Another important feature of the Arbor Green Community is the developer's commitment to keeping long-term
maintenance costs as low as possible. All homes feature four-sides brick construction, aluminum,
vinyl or vinyl wrapped soffit and facia boards, 30-year architectural shingled roofs, solid vinyl low E
double-pane windows (with Argon gas between panes),
preformed high density pvc porch posts, and vinyl gable accents and porch ceilings. These low maintenance components
will help keep down HOA fees long into the future.
Arbor Green is also the first ranch-condo active adult community in unincorporated Cobb County with county
maintained streets within the community (excluding the concrete driveways).
This relieves the community of the burden of maintaining these streets and the water main, sewer line and storm drainage
system that run under these streets. Additionally, as Arbor Green is located outside Kennesaw City limits, owners are
relieved of paying city taxes whilst still enjoying a 'Kennesaw Address'. Finally, once at least one owner in a home is
aged over 62 years, school taxes are eliminated for that home resulting in a drop in county property taxes of
With all these benefits, Arbor Green is destined to become more charming and appealing with time, as the lovely
evergreens and hardwood trees within the community grow and prosper.
