Homeowner at The Orchards of East Cherokee Gets Crafty

Joan and Rex Ireland moved from sunny California to The Orchards of East Cherokee in Woodstock to be closer to their daughter, but they got much more than just a new home.

Choosing The Orchards of East Cherokee, an active adult and maintenance free community built by The Orchards Group, was a no-brainer for the couple because they liked the location, peaceful country like setting and the community. It was the perfect place for the couple to settle in to their new life in Metro Atlanta. The community is close to all of the activities that the rejuvenated downtown Woodstock, Roswell and Alpharetta have to offer. Plus, it is close to a good selection of golf courses, which appealed to Rex.

The couple’s new home is two stories with the owner’s suite on the main level. “We love the spaciousness and natural light it provides,” explained Joan. “It is a larger home than we anticipated owning here in Atlanta, but we love being able to spread out and enjoy our new formal living and dining rooms.”

Joan and Rex also enjoy participating in the communities’ events such as the T.G.I. Fridays and meet and greet parties. Joan has even formed her own community, a craft group. The group gathers at the clubhouse once a month for now, but they are looking into meeting twice a month as participation grows. The craft group allows participants to bring a project they are working on such as cross-stitching, quilting, crocheting, knitting, painting and more. If participants want, Joan will also give them a knitting lesson during this time. activity

Living in the country has added a few new experiences to the couple’s life, such as the cows mooing in the morning, but they are settling into their new home nicely. They are very happy in their home and expect to live there for years to come.
