Serenbe is the Greenest City in America and is just 30 minutes south of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport. Many visitors describe it as an escape from the city. This unique community was founded on sound principles of community, green space and sustainability. Serenbe sits in the heart of the Chattahooche Hill Country, occupying 900 of the 40,000 acres of largely untouched countryside. This community is not like any other near the metropolitan area. Serenbe is not a typical residential housing development. Rather, it is a collection of hamlets comprised of rustic farms, quaint cottages, custom family homes, unique shops and world-class restaurants.
The sense of community and neighborhood is what attracts many of its residents both part-time and year-round. Casual meetings at the seasonal Saturday morning farmer’s market, festive town events, a casual chat across a fence, or perhaps a small dinner at home with a few friends is what draws neighbors together. Many residents enjoy the luxury of the live/work aspect of Serenbe. Thoughtfully planned, the Serenbe community includes a diverse collection of businesses. Artists can have their gallery or studio downstairs and live upstairs in a chic Manhattan style loft upstairs.
One of the best parts about Serenbe is dining. Food is an important part of the community. It brings neighbors together and creates new friendships. Serenbe is home to three world-class restaurants, each offering unique and creative fare from casual and light to more elegant presentations. All 3 restaurants serve food that was grown locally on Serenbe farm, fulfilling the trendy and sustainable farm-to-table concept.
While many are still discovering and learning about Serenbe, the recent 2012 HGTV home provided this development with unseen record amounts of visitors and national TV exposure. Nan Haverty worked with a past client out of Manhattan who saw the home on the show and wanted to purchase it as a second home for her and her family as soon as it hit the market.
