House Envy: Own a piece of Roswell history with this antebellum farmhouse

The antebellum home—which now sits on a half-acre lot—retains many of its original features. The two front rooms are drenched with natural light from the floor-to-ceiling triple-hung windows, which once provided access to the deep front porch. Most of the original, wide-plank heart pine floors are intact throughout the 4-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom main house, which also boasts 4 fireplaces.

Vacation Home Community Snapshot: Bear Lake Reserve

The best place to live in Georgia is . . . Canton?

While the folks at the real estate blog Movoto.com think Atlanta excels in nerdiness and redneckery, they’ve concocted a new list where, oddly enough, the city doesn’t place at all. Movoto’s “10 Best Places in Georgia” roster doesn’t include the state’s capital.  That’s right; Atlanta evidently doesn’t rate. The most peachy keen of Georgia’s places to live is none other than (drum roll, please) Canton.

Movoto’s explanation: a data-and-statistics-based formula used to identify real estate Utopias by ranking total amenities, crime, tax rates, employment, commute time, and weather (uh, humid). The rankings don’t include access to mass transit, but do include a multifaceted “quality of life” tabulation that assesses the cost of living, median home price, median rent, median household income, and student-to-teacher ratio in public schools.

Atlanta is hungry for fancy townhouses

These aren’t your grandma’s townhouses. Real estate agents say Atlanta is hungry for semidetached homes with envelope-pushing modern design. Case in point: The Boulevard at Lenox, a gated, 10-unit complex on Lenox Road near I-85 that was 70 percent sold six months before its expected completion in June.
