Set up in a similar fashion to the Market Day held earlier this weekend, the Art Festival did in fact feature more arts and crafts.  A little warmer and somewhat more humid than Saturday but overall a beautiful day to stroll around the square and check out the arts and crafts. The First thing that drew my attention was a young woman painting a house. Her name is Britney Childs, a local artist who paints all kinds of things, but mostly buildings and houses in water color.  We got to talking and she says she paints quite a few homes for REALTORS as closing gifts for their client's new homes.What a great idea!  As it turns out, I already own a couple of prints of her originals (one of the Courthouse and the other of the library) I had bought at the Art Store located on South Court Square. ...

Lake Redwine also known as Lake Redwine Plantation is a 300+ acre lake located in Coweta County Georgia.  There are several developments in the area, including the North Shore and South Shore areas; each with it's own HOA.  The lake is available to the residents and includes a variety of amenities including boating, and fishing.  There are pools managed by the associations and there are plenty of trails, parks and other activities for residents.In terms of the current market review information, obviously properties right on the water are going to price out differently than something without any waterfront or water views.  Other factors of course can vary in terms of home prices including size, location, quality of interior, date of build, curb appeal etc...as a general snapshot then of ...

Brown's Reservoir in Northern Coweta County Georgia, is one of the main sources of drinking water for the Newnan area.  It is managed by the Coweta County Water and Sewage Authority.  The above picture is taken from the boat launch at the park available for Coweta County residents.  There are some rules however, No motorized boats except for electric prowlers and paddles.  No rubber or vinyl rafts.  No gas tanks or cans.  Fishing is only permitted from boat and the park has open and closed hours.  The lake itself is quite large, about 300 acres or so and serves as the centerpiece for the Water's Edge community.  The community appears to be firmly established, and by the looks of the housing market data in the area it's well sought after.  Nothing at Water's Edge Estates or the Enclave, ...

Located Southwest of Atlanta by about a half hour or so and between Palmetto and Newnan just a mile from Exit 51 off I-85 is the 1,500 acre luxury development and golf course community of Arbor Crest.  Within the development you will find various subset neighborhoods with variety of sized homes ranging from several thousand square feet on up into 6,000 square feet or so.  Out of respect for the personal property of the home owners I did not get pictures of some of the stunning homes you will find at Arbor Crest and I do want to emphasize the word "stunning" to the point where it almost takes your breath away.  Then as you turn a bend in the road and climb over the next hill there in front of you is another gorgeous home even more beautiful than the last one you set eyes on.   Most of th...

The next time you tune in to your favorite country station and the DJ is playing "Way Down Yonder on the Chattahoochee", by Newnan Native Alan Jackson, or you happen to hear it in between innings at an Atlanta Braves game, this is the same muddy water the country star sings about and quite possibly the very location that inspired the lyrics to that number one record.  This is also the location for one of Georgia's largest and newest parks. Park History:  The property was previously owned by Georgia Power and timber companies with several hundred acres of tree in the area.  Area residents got together and purchased the property along with funds from Coweta county elected officials and this lead to the creation of the State Park in 2011Riverside Trail Hike:  The park boasts more than 12 m...

Finally I got to go to Newnan's Market Day!  For me the square has always been a special place.  I still remember that cold Fall Day; It was October 29th of 1986 and my parents and I had came up from Fort Lauderdale Florida to look for houses and immediately fell in love with Newnan.  The leaves were still falling, and the pumpkins were out.  I guess we liked the square because my Dad's childhood home, and that of my Grandparents out in Rupert Idaho had a town square.  Since then the square is even more vibrant and now with a successful street fair!   It was the perfect day too, with low humidity levels and a comfortable 74 degrees.   As you can see, there were lots of people out.Market Day is every first Saturday of the month between the months of April and December right in downtown N...

Newnan is increasingly one of the most saught after communities in the greater Atlanta Metropolitan area offering everything you'd want from a big city with all the charm of a small town.  Madison Park in Newnan Lakes is just that.  It's located right off of the Newnan Crossing Bypass, and Lower Fayetteville Road area.  It's close to Ashley Park Shopping Center https://ashleyparknewnan.comOf course you would be just be a five minutes drive to the Court Square in Downtown Newnan or about a half hour from bagage Claim at Atlanta's International Airport.  I have inserted a map with the blue dot representing the aproximate location of where this development is located.  Atlanta is to the Northwest, Peachtree City would be to the East past White Oak Golf Course.There are quite a few features...

Linda Scott, Newnan Branch Manager at Newnan's Coldwell Banker Bullard office put together a fun afternoon Birthday Party for Coldwell Banker complete with a hot lunch, salad, sweet tea, and even a birthday cake for the occasion.Coldwell Banker® was founded in 1906 when Colbert Coldwell, a young real estate sales associate, observed families trying to piece their lives together following the disastrous San Francisco earthquake.Disapproving of sales associates who acquired property from vulnerable sellers and then resold it at huge profits, and seeing a need for honest, knowledgeable real estate professionals, he formed his own company.Coldwell Banker has entered its second century in real estate and continues to offer clients a level of service and resources of which Colbert Coldwell an...

Having just moved back to Newnan after a little over 30 years I bought a new home on the far outstretches of the Fayetteville Road Corridor in a subdivision at the edge of Newnan's city limits, the first thing I noticed after moving back was how beautiful all of the homes were, and that what was once country where I rode my motorcycle after school, is that my goodness the road sure is busy!  In fact it runs almost half the traffic as some of the major four lane roads around and yet it's just two lanes.  Once in while, less often than it is, the road is like it once was, free of cars and open as far as you can see, but that is the extreme exception of course, rather than the rule.The reality is that the area of Newnan, Coweta County and Fayette County including Peachtree City and beyond ...

The Calendar may say that it’s early November, but the thermometer looks more like it should be early January. With temperatures falling into the low 20’s tonight, Newnan GA will be about ten degrees colder than Juneau Alaska. It’s also a “chilling” reminder that the days of 2013 are dwindling, and that the holiday season is just around the corner and that 2014 is not far behind. The clock always seems to accelerate from mid-November through New Years Day, and I’m looking forward to the frenzy of festivities that are about to descend upon us. But for now, I just want to stay warm.   Now where did I put that extra blanket?

Situated thirty miles Southwest of Atlanta, Newnan Georgia combines the charm and ambience of an antebellum village with all of the conveniences and amenities of a big city. The historic Newnan Downtown Square hasn’t changed very much over all of the years, but there have been some changes. Since the opening of the New Justice Center on the south side of town, the old courthouse now houses some minor agencies and the Newnan / Coweta County Visitor Center. It’s a great first stop for those seeking information about what to see and do while visiting the area. In addition to the many shops and restaurants punctuating the Square, the newly restored Carnegie Library is now one of the cornerstones of Downtown. There are also several parks within walking distance of Downtown, beautifully lands...

We are expecting a hard freeze in Newnan Georgia tonight. It’s a bit early for freezing temperatures here in the South. We usually don’t see weather this cold until early December. And so I had to go outside and harvest the last of the Summer vegetables. I’ll pickle the peppers tomorrow and place the last tomatoes on the window sill to ripen. It’s also a good reminder to get my business plan for 2014 in order. With just over two months left before the New Year, the time for preparation is waning quickly.   And since I’ll be spending less time tending the garden, I need something to keep me busy anyway!
