We’re excited to be back with an entirely new product line,” said Eric Price, division president with David Weekley Homes in Atlanta. “We’ve witnessed a terrific response from 55+ homebuyers here in Atlanta at Heritage at Towne Lake in Cherokee County and Marietta Township in Cobb County and look forward to seeing a similar response from Hall County buyers in the weeks to come.”

Tailored to the active adult lifstyle, Encore by David Weekley Homes offers amenities exclusive to residents in The Retreat at Sterling on the Lake, including the 4,500-square-foot Lakeside Clubhouse with fitness center, yoga lawn, as well as tennis, pickleball and bocce ball courts.
