Timberbrook – A private retreat for Active Adults in Sharpsburg, Georgia

Lennar Atlanta

Endless adventures and exciting possibilities await the next resident of this rising 55+ Better, Active Adult community in Sharpsburg, Georgia.

Georgia caters to the active lifestyle with Southern style and grace. Its capital city of Atlanta is a landmark of pure indulgence which entices visitors with its rich history, fine dining, and inspiration-inducing attractions. After your city ventures, explore the rich countryside, hike over mountain trails, or tee off along the Georgia Golf Trail. You will quickly find life in the Peach State to be…well, “peachy keen!”

Planted between the charming cities of Sharpsburg and Peachtree City, Timberbrook is a new home community rooted in southern hospitality. Its design inspires friendly beginnings offset by moments of idleness. The property is surrounded by a natural wall of pines, elms, and cypress trees to lend residents a valued sense of privacy. Trim landscaping efforts are enhanced by the babbling Rock Branch Stream, as it flows through the heart of the community.

Georgia has a humid subtropical climate with characteristically short, mild winters and long, hot, steamy summers; however, temperatures show considerable geographic variation. While the low-lying south has more precipitation and overall the highest temperatures in the state, the gently rising terrain to the north, and Atlanta’s position just south of the Appalachian and Blue Ridge Mountains, show a ten-degree difference year-round. Winter snowfall is very light, with a mere two inches of snow kissing the ground, while heavy spring and summer thunderstorms drop an average 50 inches of rain a year. Of all four seasons, spring and fall are the most comfortable, exhibiting agreeable temperatures and delightfully-colorful scenery.

Sharpsburg appeals to everyone with its authentic, small-town feel, even as the city grows to support the needs of the modern lifestyle. Downtown is the center of activity, where folks find an eclectic mix of specialty shops, restaurants, and galleries, and special events inspire a sense of community. You can sample local cuisines during the Taste of Newnan (October); celebrate creativity at the Fall and Spring Art Walks; or buy homemade wares from local farmers at the monthly Market Day. Get lost in the splendor of historic Dunaway Gardens, one of the largest natural rock-and-floral gardens in the South that was once host to ambitious theatrical societies and celebrities during the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. Not far away, the city of Peachtree City is a welcoming retreat from the everyday, and you can get anywhere with the city’s signature mode of transportation – a golf cart. Learn the history of combat aviation at the Commemorative Air Force Dixie Wing, where special events like WWII Heritage Days immerse you in the past with reenactment battles, veteran presentations, swing dances, and more. Recruit friends and family to compete in the annual Dragon Boat Races (September) – no paddling experience required, or stay on dry land for the art, food, and culture of the International Festival. A night of music under the stars is most memorable at the Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater, which has entertained audiences with popular artists such as Kenny G, Richard Marx, Pat Benatar, Styx, and Foreigner.

Travel 33 miles north along I-85 to The City in a Forest; Atlanta is a vast metropolis boasting epic urban adventures beneath a canopy of greenery. Go on a behind-the-scenes tour of CNN Studio and sample over 100 soda flavors at the World of Coca-Cola. Swim with whale sharks at the Georgia Aquarium, ride heart-pounding coasters at Six Flags Over Georgia, or revisit your childhood with the beloved characters of Jim Henson at the Center for Puppetry Arts. The Atlanta History Center is home to one of the largest collections of Civil War memorabilia and caretaker of the Margaret Mitchell House, where Mitchell wrote her Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Gone With the Wind. Atlanta is also known for its historic role in the Civil Rights Moment, and visitors can pay respects to Martin Luther King, Jr. at his final resting place. Every May, the Atlanta Jazz Festival showcases over 100 performers for its month-long, genre-appreciative celebration, and its free attendance draws folks from all over to appreciate good music in Piedmont Park. Shop sought-after fashionista brands at Lenox Square or explore the retro shops along Little Five Points. Treat your taste buds with a visit to Buford Highway; this 8-mile corridor comprises over 20 international communities, with immigrant-owned restaurants serving up authentic dishes from Latin America, China, Ethiopia, Thailand, and many more countries. Should you be interested in a night of fine dining, the Sun Dial Restaurant gives guests a magnificent 360-degree view of the Atlanta skyline from 723 feet above and serves up dishes inspired by local, farm-to-table ingredients. A passion for the arts is satisfied with a visit to the Alliance Theater, where more than 100 original productions have premiered before going to Broadway, and the Fox Theater is a famous concert and event venue for ballets, music, comedy, and other live performances.

Opposite its amusing cityscapes, West Georgia has outdoor excursions and recreational retreats that give balance to your day-to-day routine and overall wellness. Venture 50 miles south to F.D. Roosevelt State Park, named after the beloved president who often visited the piney mountain haven. Georgia’s largest state park (9,049 acres) has 42 miles of trails to hike – the scenery is breathtaking in the fall, and visitors can also fish, swim, kayak, ride horses, camp under the stars, or rent a charming stone cottage for the weekend. Chattahoochee Bend State Park also boasts a spectacular tract of wilderness for hikers and water enthusiasts and lies only 23 miles west of Timberbrook. Celebrate the seasons at Southern Belle Farm, where you can pick spring strawberries and summer peaches, shoot the fall corn cannon, or find a Christmas tree. Callaway Resort & Gardens is a stunning 2,500-acre estate in the town of Pine Mountain – close to F.D. Roosevelt State Park – that puts on a variety of outdoor activities open to the public. Walk the famous azalea gardens, ride in a hot air balloon, watch steeplechase races, water ski on Robin Lake, or marvel at winged-beauties in the Day Butterfly Center.

Memorable golf experiences happen in Georgia, and Atlanta together with surrounding cities boasts an exciting series of fun, scenic courses that are diverse in design and play to suit the interests and skills of any golfer. Join a local (private) course like Planterra Ridge in Peachtree  City and enjoy open play on partner courses Braelinn, Flat Creek, and Whitewater with your all-inclusive membership; these beautiful courses, each unique unto itself, thrillingly challenge your game with well-placed hazards along rolling foothills, tree-lined fairways, and splendid waterways. Every April, the Peach State hosts The Masters Tournament in Augusta. This prestigious golfer’s event was co-founded by Robert Tyre “Bobby” Jones, Jr., and you can play his namesake golf course in Atlanta. The Bobby Jones Golf Course features a revolutionary reversible course design, allowing you to play in opposing directions, with multiple tees and pin combinations on large double greens. If you want to make a weekend of playing the 9’s, tee up at Stone Mountain Golf Course, located just outside Atlanta at the base of the historic mountain for which it is named. The golf club has two championship courses – Stonemont, with its narrow fairways, aptly-placed bunkers, and impressive Georgia pines, and Lakemont, with a front 9 that wind around Stone Mountain Lake. To the avid player seeking their next golf adventure, Stone Mountain Golf Course is an ideal start to playing the Georgia Golf Trail, which recognizes 25 highly-ranked golf resorts and clubs across the state from the mountains to the coast.

Timberbrook offers a private retreat with unique opportunities for your active lifestyle. Its resort-style amenities open the way to fostering new relationships and a better sense of well-being. The central hub for recreation and socialization is the community clubhouse. Here, residents can work out in the fitness center, and afterward take a relaxing dip in the swimming pool. The clubhouse kitchen is fully equipped for group cooking efforts, and artsy hobbyists enjoy weekly projects in the craft room. A flex room allows special and private events to be held on-site, and additional activity spaces in- and outside the clubhouse – this includes an outdoor bar and grilling area – add convenience and flexibility to each denizen’s active routine. Engage in a little friendly competition with neighbors on the tennis court or dual pickleball courts adjacent to the clubhouse, and enjoy afternoon walks along the winding sidewalks throughout the neighborhood.

Inspired by its woodsy estate, Timberbrook poses beautiful ranch-style homes with open floorplans and convenient single-story living. The earthy tones and textures of the brick and stone accents enhance curb appeal, while large picture windows welcome in natural light to brighten the spacious rooms and offer views of the pleasing streetscape. All four floorplans –Amberwood,  Briarwood, Crestwood, and Brunswick – focus on a comfortable lifestyle with modern conveniences. The 2-to-3 bedroom, 2-bath homes make it easy to put up visiting family, and the ease of hosting friends for Sunday football, holiday parties, or maybe a private book club is accomplished with the seamless connection between the family (or great) room, upscale kitchen, and dining areas. For the chef who loves to pursue their culinary aspirations, all homes include a gourmet kitchen with a  36” gas cooktop, vent hood, convection wall oven, and convection wall microwave, granite countertops, and more. Elegance and space can be further achieved with the elevation of a floorplan to include a second-story loft, bedroom, and bath or a large bonus room which you can transform into a home office, library, or game room. A healthy connection with the outdoors is founded between the covered front porch, where you may chat with passing neighbors, and the covered back patio with an option to screen, where you can sip morning coffee or grill summer favorites. Each low-maintenance abode comes with included lawn care so you enjoy more leisure time, and as part of Lennar’s Everything’s Included®, we add desirable features and finishes to every floorplan at the best possible value; these add-ons  include stainless steel appliances, tile floors, walk-in closets, double vanities, granite countertops and a Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ Home Design with home automation products.

It is an opportunity to learn and discover; to have fun and relax; to reclaim time and do the things you love to do as well as the things you always wanted to try. You will thrive in West Georgia, taking advantage of a new home turf that delightfully lies between the Presidential Paths and Atlanta Metro. Indeed, Timberbrook is your chance to see and experience the history, nostalgia, and majesty of a place that is old yet timeless.
