We are looking to move from Atlanta to Kennesaw area. We saw a house we really like in the Chestnut Hill subdivision which technically falls in Acworth. Can anyone give me info on this neighborhood - the good and the bad would be very much appreciated. Is there a different swim/tennis community we should look at? Schools are important.

Just so you are clear, the zip code is Acworth, it is not technically Acworth city limits but unincorporated Cobb County. It's in that area of North Cobb where Kennesaw, Acworth, Marietta and Woodstock zip codes meander in and out but it is all unincorporated Cobb.

As for the neighborhood, have had several friends that lived there and have been pleased. I have been out of the area for several years now, but still have friends there. One of the better built subdivisions in that corner of the county IMO.

Thanks Saintmarks - I saw what you are talking about with it being in Cobb co. Glad to hear some positive feedback - we are very unfamiliar with the area. Just looking for a good place to raise kids. East Cobb you really don't get much for the money.

I would check on the high school this neighborhood feeds into. I know the local elementary and middle are fine. But if it feeds to Kell High School, would be happier than if it was zoned for North Cobb HS. Nothing really wrong with North Cobb, just feel Kell is bit better.

Would be a good one for Aries to chime in on (too bad I can't tag him like in FB lol). He is the resident expert on Cobb schools and zones. I remember in my years in the area this neighborhood kind of fell in the middle of differing zones and got rezoned a couple of times. I remember it going from either Lassiter or Sprayberry to North Cobb in the early 90s and then I am pretty sure it went to Kell when it opened, a much more natural fit as it is much closer to Kell. Worth looking into.

The houses I have seen so far are zoned Kell for HS.
Seems to have a decent reputation, hopefully it won't get rezoned.

I was just driving through Chestnut Hill on Friday...a great neighborhood. I definitely recommend it.

It is zoned for Kell High, Palmer Middle, and Chalker Elementary...all are good schools.


And Brother Marks...North Cobb High is a good school as well--don't disparage it!

I certainly hope I wasn't disparaging it, just know geographically it is much better suited for Kell than when it was North Cobb. My personal ranking of Kell ahead would be, on a scale of one to ten, just tenths of a point.....

And how did you hear my call for help so quickly?!!?
