Located on the eastside of Douglasville is a master planned community made for enjoying your neighbors and the outdoors. The Tributary was built on ideals very different from traditional neighborhoods and has paved the way for a new way of thinking about what a suburban community should look like.

With hiking trails, dog parks and social events galore The Tributary offers so much more than just a beautiful home. You are just a few minutes away from Sweetwater Creek State Park and only 20 minutes from sporting events and all the entertainment Atlanta has to offer.

When the perfect Georgia weather reveals itself in the early summer and fall there are concerts in the Park and Jazz on the Green. The community has a range of home styles from single family detached on regular and estate sized lots to attached alley-fed homes With so many options there is something for everyone and social events and clubs more numerous than we can count.

The two bedroom, two bath home is located on a corner lot and offers an open, bright and airy floorplan in this delightful community.

As you enter from the sidewalk lined street, the craftsman style home welcomes you into an adjoining dining, living and kitchen area.  It is a perfect layout for inviting friends and family over for an evening or afternoon of fun.

Valentine's Day restaurantsValentine’s Day is eight days away, have you made your dinner reservations yet? If not you still have time and The Cueny Team is making it easy for you with some great dinner suggestions.  We love good food and a good atmosphere! When we started talking about what restaurants we wanted to recommend to our readers, we discovered Nicole was our resident foodie! She definitely had a few she loved and wanted to make sure you knew about.  We put the whole teams ideas down on paper and it was fun to see the mix of cuisine that we each like! There is something on our list for everyone, so don’t wait any longer make those reservations!

Pampas  – Argentinian Steak House – They bring steaks to your table for you to choose from. You select the piece of meat you want and they cook it to order. The chimi churri sauce is AMAZING.  It is in the Johns Creek area.

Hugo’s Oysters – This place is so casual and fun and has great char-grilled oysters that melt in your mouth. It is in Roswell.

Made – Spanish tapas – Talk about a romantic and very cool building. Made has a great urban feel right in the heart of Alpharetta. As as side note for later, when the weather warms up you will want to take advantage of its patio.

Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails – With fresh local ingredients (many from their own garden ) and a seasonal menu you can never go wrong at Milton’s.  The atmosphere is perfect. The 150 year old farmhouse and cottage from the 1930’s has been loving restored for the perfect dining experience.  Milton’s also has a special Valentine’s menu planned for this year too!

Co’m Dunwoody – Vietnamese cuisine –  The ban joi with chicken is fabulous! You get to create your own spring roll with rice paper, fresh vegetables, noodles and chicken (or any protein you desire).  It would be a fun place to go for Valentine’s Day. A great environment to relax and have a good time. And while it is not always in season or available the sticky rice with mango can’t be beat for dessert!

Brooklyn Cafe – This is great neighborhood restaurant located in Sandy Springs. The food is always exceptional whether you choose from old favorites or the daily special. They also have a great wine list! The staff makes you feel right at home!
Hearth – If you and your sweetheart prefer something a little more low key, Hearth is an amazing pizza tavern and the exposed brick walls and wood bar couldn’t be any cozier on a cool February night in Sandy Springs.
See we have lots of ideas! Try something new and make your reservation today! You don’t want to disappoint that special someone.

A new development by Ashton Woods opened in Dunwoody recently and just last week begun pre-selling lots! In the first week of pre-sales lots were already under contract!

Nicole and Tara visited the development and took some video of the site to share with you.  It is a beautiful piece of property that will have you ready to choose from the five floor plans and deciding the perfect location for your dream home. Watch this video to see what the community has to offer and make sure to check back for updates on the beautiful neighborhood.  Are you ready to make your new home a reality? Call us today!

 

Over the last several weeks reports of 2014 and expectations of 2015 have been the focus of many news articles, press releases and websites.  Overall 2014 national home sales were down 3.1% from 2013, but that is not necessarily a surprise considering the low inventory issues that continue across the country.  Average home prices however rose 5.8%! That is great news for homeowners trying to recoup some of the equity lost during the downturn.

Atlanta is projected by CNN Money to have an 11% home sales growth in 2015, which is above what the National Association of Realtors projects for the nation in 2015.  With the growth in Atlanta business and the continuing addition of new companies to the area, the real estate market is sure to continue on its upward path. Interesting also is that by the end of 2015 Millenials will be the largest group of first time homeowners.
