Intimate McEver Mill, a New 55+ Attached Home Community, is About an Hour from Atlanta and Just Minutes from Popular Lake Lanier
Oakwood is just to the east of sprawling, 38,000-acre Lake Lanier in northern Georgia, about an hour northeast of Altanta, and is the location of McEver Mill, a 55+ development built by Jim Chapman Communities, an award-winning company. Construction began in 2018, and when complete, McEver Mill should have 105 attached, one-and-a-half story homes (town homes).
Two floor plans are available. Each provides about 1,450 square feet of living space, with two bedrooms and two baths on the main floor. The upstairs can be turned into a third bedroom or used for storage. Jim Chapman Communities works with new residents to customize each home.
All properties have a private driveway, a one-car garage, and a covered front or back porch. Four to six homes are clustered together in each building. Exteriors feature vinyl siding and brick.
Prices begin in the low-$200,000s. HOA fees includes landscaping (mowing, edging, pine straw) as well as roof and exterior maintenance.
As of now, McEver Mill has no amenities.

What is the Difference Between an Age-Targeted Community and an Age-Restricted Community?
An age-restricted community is a development that meets HUDs guidelines for senior housing, which states that the housing must have at least one person who is age 55 or better in at least 80% of the housing units. For developments with an age-restriction of 62 or better, all residents must meet the age requirement. Age-targeted communities do not have to adhere to HUD guidelines and cannot discriminate on the basis of age. They usually market to empty nesters and baby boomers but must accept residents of all ages, including families with children.
