Community Highlight: Exploring Three Vibrant Neighborhoods Built by Green River Builders

While you never know where a Green River Builders community might pop up next, we are currently building in two highly desirable areas of Georgia. You will find our special brand of lifestyle-inspired floor plans, inviting facades, and a sense of community where our construction crews are hard at work inside Trove in Watkinsville, Windermere in Douglasville, and The Overlook at River Pointe in Winston. All three boast their own unique identities, but each proves an extension of our dedication to quality craftsmanship. Here are just a few ways these communities stand out by fostering a strong sense of belonging, connection, and convenience.  

Thoughtful Planning and Design

Trove offers cottage-inspired homes that boast open concepts inside and outdoor living spaces ideal for hosting an at-home tailgate party within miles of Athens, Georgia. Meanwhile, Windemere showcases the spacious floor plans Green River Builders fans have come to know and love in the Southern city of Douglasville – which promises a unique blend of small-town ambiance and big-town fun. The Overlook at River Pointe offers more of the same with handsome brick facades in the hidden gem of a city – Winston, GA –home to the picturesque and passive 200-acre Clinton Nature Preserve. What the three have in common are the thoughtful planning of each interior layout and dramatic finishes that exude a mixture of comfort and luxury. From oversized primary bedrooms to chef-inspired kitchens, every floor plan is designed to enhance the lifestyle of the family who lives there. Homebuyers in both communities will be afforded an opportunity to work with a professional interior designer to select the paint colors, fixtures, and finishes that will make their new Green River Builders home unique to their family.

Amenities that Enhance Quality of Life

While none of the three communities come equipped with traditional amenities like a community pool and cabana, Trove, Windemere, and The Overlook at River Pointe emphasize green spaces for an unspoiled, scenic setting. Green River Builders has also taken special care in the placement of all three communities to ensure ease of access to the many desirable amenities offered by the cities where they are based.  

Trove is set within 1.3 miles of Watkinsville’s charming downtown area, 1.6 miles of the up-and-coming mixed-use Wire Park dining-shopping-entertainment district, and ten miles of downtown Athens’ vibrant music, food, retail, and art scenes. It’s also roughly 8 miles from the University of Georgia Golf Course and a treasure trove of community parks offering hiking trails, playgrounds, beach access, and more.  

Windemere is located within 35 minutes of the world’s busiest airport – Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport – and 25 minutes of Downtown Atlanta and all the adventures those two destinations have to offer. It’s also within a 10-mile drive of Downtown Douglasville and its collection of boutiques, eateries, and events. Nearby Sweetwater Creek State Park offers tranquil walking trails, historic mill ruins, river rapids, the George Sparks Reservoir for fishing and kayaking, and more. Chapel Hill Mirror Lake and West Pines Golf Clubs are popular destinations for area golfers.  

The Overlook at River Pointe is convenient to I-20, with Villa Rica to the West and Douglasville, Lithia Springs, and Austell to the East. It’s less than 10 miles from Arbor Place Mall and less than 20 miles from Six Flags Over Georgia. A little closer to home, the Clinton Nature Preserve offers 200 passive acres for exploring, including a network of nature trails and a half-mile walking track that encircles the Junior League ADA-accessible playground, the first of its kind in Douglas County. History buffs will love that about one mile into the woods on foot, they’ll find the Carnes Cabin, a pre-Civil War residence listed on the National Register of Historic Places.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Winston,_Georgia

Emphasis on Education and Learning

From kindergarten to college, Green River Builders emphasizes access to a good education and quality schools when placing our communities. Trove is located in the Oconee County Schools System – which is dedicated to student success. School-aged children living in Trove attend Colham Ferry Elementary, Oconee County Middle, and Oconee County High Schools. Oconee County High School ranks #2 among Athens Metro high schools, has garnered a 9 out of 10 score from GreatSchools.org, and boasts a 92% graduation rate. For parents who prefer a private school education for their children, Trove is convenient to several highly touted private schools, including Westminster Christian Academy, Prince Avenue Christian School, and Athens Christian School.  

The same holds true for Windemere, which is situated in the Douglas County School System and is served by South Douglas Elementary, Fairplay Middle, and Chapel Hill High Schools. Chapel Hill High School is #1 among Douglas County high schools and boasts an 89% graduation rate. The Overlook at River Pointe is also served by the Douglas County School System and is districted to Mason Creek Elementary, Fairplay Middle, and Alexander High Schools. Alexander boasts a highly impressive graduation rate of 94%. Private school offerings near both communities include King’s Way Christian School, Chapel Hill Christian School, and Harvester Christian Academy.

As for college, Trove offers convenience to students attending UGA, Athens Tech, and the University of North Georgia – Oconee, while both Windemere and The Overlook are close to the University of West Georgia – Douglasville, West Georgia Technical College, and Georgia Highlands College.

Engaging Community Events and Activities

At Green River Builders, we believe that a sense of community should extend to the area that surrounds our distinctive neighborhoods. If you’re a Bulldogs fan, gaining a sense of community is easy with one of the most passionate fanbases in the Southeastern Conference. As for meeting the neighbors within the cities where they are set, Trove homeowners will want to add regular stops to the Oconee Farmers Market, an annual visit to Watkinsville’s Fall Festival, outdoor concerts at Wire Park, and countless events in Downtown Athens to their to-do list. There’s also strawberry picking at Washington Farms, gaining an appreciation of the Great Outdoors at Hardigree Wildlife Sanctuary, and getting crafty at the Board & Brush studio. And don’t even get us started about the colorful and exciting environment of a Game Day Saturday – whether heading to Sanford Stadium or hosting an at-home tailgate party.  

As for Douglasville, events like the Hydrangea Festival each Spring, Chili Cook-off each Fall, and Christmas Parade & Tree Lighting each Winter are not to be missed. Windemere and Overlook residents can also shop ‘til you drop at Arbor Place Mall, while away an hour or two at L&R Alpaca Haven Farm, or test your bravery at nearby Six Flags Over Georgia, to name a few fun local activities.

In addition to Trove, Windemere, and The Overlook at River Pointe, Green River Builders is excited to introduce our newest community, Le Jardin Giverny – coming soon to South Fulton! With unbeatable style, planning, and design, Le Jardin is sure to provide all the comforts of home.
