We may be biased, having lived in the Towne Lake area for many years, but there are many reasons to love this region of metro Atlanta, including:

1. Sense of community – the Towne Lake area has managed to maintain its intimate, small town feel while still offering services, features and amenities of much larger towns.

2. Proximity to Atlanta—you are still within about 30 miles of Atlanta, without the big city feel. Towne Lake is a master-planned community with a great deal of green space and trees. In fact, Towne Lake was originally part of the Little River State Wildlife Management Area and when the area was developed in the late 1980s, great pains were taken to maintain numerous natural spaces.
