The Orchards of East Cherokee Going Strong

The Orchards Group is exited to announce 12 planned or under construction active adult homes at The Orchards of East Cherokee, an active adult community in Woodstock. With 11 homes sold since January, the builder has begun building again to meet buyer's demand.

As buyers are selling their old homes and looking for a new one, The Orchards at East Cherokee offers them an opportunity to purchase move-in ready homes. “Our buyers were having difficulty selling their existing home, which was quite frustrating to them.  But, recent improvements in the 'resale' market have catapulted our business, as these buyers can now move forward," said Mitch Block, sales and marketing director for the company.

With low to zero maintenance with gorgeous appointed interiors, The Orchards of East Cherokee is a community of 92 ranch condominium homes and 48 single family homes. Residents can also enjoy the grand clubhouse, pool, waterfall sitting plaza and grill area. Just imagine how much simpler your life could be with one of these homes.

Located across the street from the largest Kroger in Cherokee County, The Orchards of East Cherokee is also close to additional shopping, dining, recreation, healthcare and entertainment options. “We are not in downtown anywhere, but still just 15 minutes or less from four local downtown areas: Alpharetta, Roswell, Historic Woodstock and Canton," said Craig Smith, sales counselor for the company.

The Orchards Group Knocks One Out of the Park

The Orchards Group really hit a grand slam with their baseball meet and greet event. This event was held at The Orchards of EastCherokee and The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm during the month of April.

Both communities had great home team attendance at the event. Attendees enjoyed delicious food fresh off the grill while they watched live baseball games and mingled with other residents. In addition, residents at East Cherokee tested their baseball knowledge with trivia questions about Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth and other baseball greats.

“Talking to some of our neighbors who recalled some of their favorite childhood baseball heroes  made the events even more fun and interesting," said the Orchard’s social director, Stacy Wheelus.

The Orchards Group loves putting on events, such as the baseball meet and greet, for all of their active adult residents. All of their homeowners enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle in beautiful homes plus amazing amenities including pools, clubhouses and more! Additionally, The Orchards Group has communities where you want to live, close to shopping, dining, healthcare, entertainment, recreation and more.
