I'm moving to GA, after the 1st of the year - working on Old Milton, right off of 400. After spending some time with a realtor, seems Alpharetta may be a bit overpriced in terms of $ for house/Sq Ft/property taxes in Fulton County. Some surrounding areas seem a bit more affordable, e.g. South Forsyth County=Cumming, Suwanee. Come someone recommend a good subdivision in those areas, in the $450-$525 range, in the better South Forsyth school districts, and a decent commute to Old Milton? (New or older subdivision)

I have a coworker that lives in St. Marlo Country Club. She really loves it, and I think you might be able to find a couple homes in that neighborhood in your price range. I can't comment on the communte from there to Old Milton as she commutes to Sugarloaf.

Most anything in the 30097 zip code will be relatively affluent and a good area.

$525k will be a low ender fix er upper in St Marlo.

Try Windermere, Chattahoochee River Club and others in that area and south. Use a good map search dealio.

Good luck. If you spend some time with a GOOD realtor all these questions would be answered already. LOL! (j/k)

The nicest subdivision in Suwanee is The River Club off of Moore Road along the Chattahoochee River, but their home prices are starting at around $1,500,000. There are resales there for less than that, but really nothing less than $900,000.

Good subdivisions to consider in your price range in South Forsyth (Cumming/Suwanee) are:

Laurel Springs
St Marlo
Hillside Estates
Grand Cascades
Olde Atlanta Club
Stoney Point Farms
Brandon Hall
James Creek
Creekstone Estates
Chattahoochee River Club
Three Chimneys

(The River Club that was mentioned by another poster is in Gwinnett county)

Have fun looking!

I commute from Suwanee to the Old Milton area occasionally and it takes about 30 minutes (less in summer when school is out, and the busses are not on the roads). I wonder why you insist on the South Forsyth schools? I agree that normally that would be a great choice, however, North Gwinnett High is nationally ranked, and its feeder schools are some of the best in the state. If you opened yourself up to being Gwinnett, but stick to that specific school cluster, you could find a gorgeous home and take Peachtree Industrial to States Bridge and straight on to Old Milton.

In that price range, you can find homes in Alpharetta and Johns Creek. It is definitely obtainable. Yes, you might get less home per sf but there are some very nice established neighborhoods that shouldn't be overlooked. Try Seven Oaks, Windward, Cambridge, Park Brooke, Part Forest, Tuxford, and Dunmoor. These are just a few of the many options.
