Over the weekend, Edward Andrews Homes teamed up with Ashton Woods to host a welcoming event for the entire community of new Marietta homes, Mabry Manor. We had over 100 new homeowners come out to meet one another, get to know their neighbors, and enjoy fun activities.  With the beautiful weather, the all-outdoor event with fall festive décor made it a great setting for activities like a bounce house, face painting, corn hole, and talking and mingling at the community’s recently unveiled cabana house and amenity area. Guests enjoyed burgers, dogs, and fresh brownies and pies from The Varsity food truck, and more. Those who attended were also able to tour both model homes and design centers at their leisure, where cozy fires warmed the family room and outside back deck and entertaining area. Some also gathered around the backyard fire pit, so there were plenty of ways to keep warm in the fall chill. The whole event was a preview of how much our new residents will enjoy life at Mabry Manor! Read More→

Mabry Manor, a new community of Marietta homes off Holly Springs Road, is one of the very few fully amenitized, full communities under construction. Buyers’ desire for these well-designed, new homes with superior schools and access to established local amenities has this outstanding community over 50% sold out already. The community was recently featured on Atlanta’s own WSB-TV Action News as an example of the Atlanta homebuilding business on the rebound due to how quickly the homes are selling – and you can see the video above!

Caroline Simmel, Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Planning for Edward Andrews Homes, is seeing the demand for new homes rising and states that they are busy keeping up with this positive trend. This is also great news for the economy, which is heading back up, as evidenced by the fact that the number of builders who applied for housing permits grew 61% from 2010 to 2012.

With so many amazing features and an immaculate landscape design, Mabry Manor is an excellent choice for living in the dream home you’ve always hoped for.
