Sought after for its natural beauty and reasonable proximity to both the city of Atlanta and the Blue Ridge Mountains, Cherokee County is an area much in demand by those looking for a simpler life with all the amenities they truly need. The home of Lake Allatoona, one of North Georgia’s best kept secrets, six golf courses, nine mountains from 1,545 feet to 2,297 feet, a regional airport, and variety of local attractions, it is not surprising that the real estate market is hot in Cherokee County. And, with millions being spent on new streetscapes and greenways, and lower property taxes than in other Atlanta counties, it is attracting not only new residents, but larger employers as well.
Cherokee County is made up of five quaint cities including Ball Ground, Holly Springs, Waleska, Mountain Park, Nelson, Canton, and Woodstock. Only a few years back, the city of Woodstock was named as one of the 10th fastest growing suburbs in the United States. The county’s seat, the City of Canton, has followed close behind. With excellent healthcare available at Northside Hospital-Cherokee, its top schools, the Canton Theater, Cherokee County Arts Center, historic buildings and a 10-acre Wild West Town with more than 100 miniature farm animals from Tanglewood Farm, it has much to offer its residents.
Today, Cherokee County offers excellent value and selection when it comes to real estate. Properties include an eclectic mix of both the new and the old, with historical homes, quaint townhomes, single-family new developments, sprawling mansions, and ranches surrounded by extensive acreage.
