Hello! Moving from out of state.

I would like your advice on family friendly neighborhoods in Marietta (open on zip codes, but would also like advice on 30062, 30064, 3066); preferably a community with some amenities (pool).

Budget is $600k for house (4 beds/3 bath; possibly basement, but not a must; possible 3 car garage, but not a must). I was told to look at Cambridge Preserve which is a Patrick Malloy Community. Any other neighborhoods that should make our list?

Thank you!

Lots of good options in that price range. Any specific commute or things you want to be close to?

Here’s a good option in 30068. Family friendly, pool, warm established neighborhood. Jackson’s Creek. Top notch school district.

In the Atlanta metropolitan area (which the Marietta area, including the three zip codes you named, is a key part of), housing searches (particularly for someone like yourself with a family) are not conducted by zip code, but rather are conducted by a combination of school zone (or clusters as they are more commonly called in the Atlanta metro area) and in accordance with how far one will have to commute to and from work through Atlanta's very heavy and very challenging metropolitan traffic congestion.

In the area in which you are inquiring about (in the parts of Cobb County with a Marietta mailing address), east of Interstate 75, start your search for housing in the Cobb County School District clusters of schools anchored by Walton, Pope and Lassiter high schools. You can also search for housing in more socioeconomically diverse areas like the Cobb County School District clusters of schools anchored by Wheeler and Sprayberry high schools.

West of Interstate 75, search for housing first in the Cobb County School District clusters of schools anchored by Harrison, Kennesaw Mountain and Hillgrove high schools.

You can also search for housing in the Cobb County School District cluster of schools anchored by McEachern High School, if you are looking to live in a much more socioeconomically diverse environment... And you could also look for housing in the independent Marietta City Schools district (anchored by Marietta High School) if you are looking to live in a much more socioeconomically diverse and more urbanized environment inside of the city limits of Marietta proper.

Cambridge Preserve appears to be a good choice because the neighborhood appears to be served by the cluster of Cobb County School District schools anchored by Hillgrove High School.

It will largely depend on where the working adults in the household will be commuting to and from for work in the traffic-challenged Atlanta metropolitan area.

If Cobb County gives you a relatively short and less-painful commute to and from work, look in the aforementioned areas of the Cobb County School District to see which areas you might prefer living in.

But definitely do keep in mind how your commute to and from work through very heavy morning and afternoon/evening rush hour traffic will be impacted by the housing options you take a look at.
