For Those Called

Home and nature are at harmony in The Preserve, a luxury residential community with 360-degree mountain and valley views.
Property owners enjoy a distinctive quality of life enriched by numerous parks and trails, gorgeous natural features, and spacious lot sizes. These environmental amenities are balanced by the convenience of nearby shopping, dining and entertainment options; medical facilities; and a major thoroughfare only 10 minutes from the gate affording access to the quaint mountain towns of North Georgia.
To the south, Atlanta's thriving commercial, cultural, nightlife and sports venues are little more than an hour away. The big-city lights can be seen from higher southward facing lots within The Preserve.

luxury living in harmony with nature
While North Georgia offers abundant diversions, the enticements within The Preserve are enough to make homebodies of property owners. With 9 trails and parks, and other natural amenities, coupled with verdant homesteads of 3 acres or more, The Preserve offers luxury living in harmony with nature. That’s the beauty and the value of living in The Preserve.
Boulder Falls Park
Massive rock outcroppings punctuate this aptly named park that features two hiking trails. The tributary Boulder Falls Branch bisects the park and becomes a scenic waterfall known as Mystic Waters.
This is an impressive cascading waterfall seen from The Preserve’s main thoroughfare, Sharp Mountain Parkway. Its flow serves as a sort of weather gauge, coming in whitecapped torrents following deluges. It is safely viewed from a footbridge adjacent to the parkway.
A picnic-ready gazebo equipped with grill and benches sits at the head of twin trails along the waters of Sharp Mountain Creek amid forest and flowers.
Talking Falls Park
A meandering downhill hiking trail in this park intersects with Scarecorn Creek at the bottom and follows the creek northward among numerous small waterfalls. Fantastic views of craggy cliffs and cavelike openings in the rocks are seen above the creek, which forms the park’s western boundary.
Sharp Mountain Nature Park
Lodge & Lawn
The Lodge is the The Preserve’s community center, where meetings and social activities abound, from the annual picnic and fall fest to happy hours. The Lodge is an open-air structure with a large stone fireplace and grill. The groomed oval lawn is the ideal spot for a picnic, games, or just lazing in the sun. The Nature Park also includes the Cubs Den playground, Split Rock Gardens with a small pond, and an overlook offering panoramic mountain and valley views.
Nesting Waters Park
This is The Preserve’s welcome center, greeting visitors just inside the east gate. A gazebo overlooks a fountain centerpiece on a small, tranquil lake. A hiking trail with a wooden footbridge over a lake tributary loops around the park.
Twin Creeks Park
This relatively rare flatland on the mountain features a playground and picnic area. Pettit Creek borders the park on the north. Towering trees provide plenty of shade. What’s in your picnic basket?
