Not sure exactly your definition of "newish," but check out St Marlo, Olde Atlanta Club, Three Chimneys, Laurel Springs and adjacent communities.

If you want new communities with amenities, with homes built within the last 5 years, most of them start at $700k. I just closed on a house in 3 chimney's & paid $450k for a 20 year old house built in 1999. I spent about 3 months looking at homes & made an offer for a home in the Polo Club which fell through, and seriously considered two others up there before I made an offer on the 3 chimney's home.

At $450k you are either going to get a home under 2500 which is remodeled & up to date, larger homes will usually be on non-premium lots "backing up to a main street or on one, or yard". For a 3500 square foot move in ready home with a nice lot then you are looking at $550k in these areas. The closer to Alpharetta you get the more expensive.

Milton, most homes with amenities in Milton start around $700k, but are custom built homes with a ton of features & big lots.

You’re probably not going to find anything fewer than ten years old or so at that price point in North Fulton. You will probably have to look in Cumming.

If you’re willing to spend closer to $600k, then check out Bellmoore Park in Johns Creek:

https://theprovidencegroup.com/bellmoore-park

It definitely meets the definition of large, as I think they are eventually planning on building over 500 houses. They have excellent amenities- large pool, 8 lit tennis courts, multiple parks and green space, etc. It’s in the Northview HS zone, so great schools (though super competitive).

They have some really nice floorplans too. Keep in mind the lots are tiny, even by today’s new construction standards.
We looked there when we were hunting, but eventually ended up buying in South Forsyth.

Schools make a big difference in housing costs.

I went there & drove into the neighborhood, never got out of my car when I saw how small the lots were. They should change the advertising to more accurately reflect the lot size "Now selling detached town houses".

If you look at their 3500 square foot house, you are going to spend $700k vs. $500k for a resale in South Forsyth which has a much better lot.

Given the tight labor market, any newly-built are charging a premium over the existing houses. I am not sure your definition of "newish" but this house may fit your criteria.

I forget the name of the neighborhood but I drive by it pretty often.
