Tucked in the rolling, wooded foothills of Paulding County in northwestern Georgia, NatureWalk at Seven Hills is one of the state's largest master-planned communities. Several distinct neighborhoods, including one called Stratford that caters to people age 55+, stretch across 855 acres. Artisan Built, the community's primary builder, works to weave the "best of man" into the "best of nature."
Three of the neighborhoods, Birchwood, Inverness and Riverwalk Manor, are populated with singles and families and have traditional two-level homes and expansive estates. A fourth neighborhood called The Retreat features single-level ranch houses and caters to empty nesters and baby boomers. Most of these properties have three to four bedrooms, ample outdoor living space, a double garage, golf cart storage, and a gourmet kitchen.
Stratford, the actual 55+ neighborhood, has one story and one and a half story homes with golf cart storage, recessed lighting, a gourmet kitchen, nine-foot ceilings and more. Floor plans range from about 1,607 square feet to 2,358 square feet with two to three bedrooms and two to three baths.
Prices in NatureWalk start in the mid- to high-$300,000s, as do Stratford prices. The NatureWalk HOA fee is $725 per year, but the Stratford HOA fee is about $3,035 annually. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they will change over time. All homes are protected by an extensive warranty.
Pumpkinvine Creek meanders through NatureWalk, and miles of walking, biking, and golf cart trails connect neighbor to neighbor and residents to facilities. The main clubhouse, outdoor heated lap pool, and 13-acre water park are open to all residents. There is also a dog park, a tennis center, an amphitheater and more. Community gardens allow homeowners to grow their own flowers and veggies. A full-time activities director helps fill the calendar with events, excursions, and classes.
Stratford residents have access to their own clubhouse and saline aquatic center. NatureWalk is also within easy reach of six golf courses.
Dallas has both big box and boutique shopping. Its civic theater hosts concerts, movies, and plays. Campuses of two universities are available for continuing education. Atlanta and 12,000-acre Lake Allatoona are both less than an hour away.
The nearby WellStar Paulding Hospital has both emergency care and specialized services. It is accredited by the Joint Commission.
On average, the area receives 45 inches of rain each year. Summer temperatures are in the 80s and 90s, and winters are mild with temperatures in the 30s, 40s and 50s.

Hernando de Soto of Spain traveled to this area in 1540, but the English had a stake here, too. A general, James Oglethorpe of England, created a haven for English debtors in the area in 1733, and he defeated Spanish invaders in 1742.
Georgia was a Confederate stronghold during the Civil War. It suffered tremendous damage when General Sherman of the Union Army burned Atlanta and then conducted his March to the Sea in 1864, resulting in the capture of Savannah.
The largest in the Southeast, Georgia has seen a lot of growth in the last couple of decades. Atlanta, the capital city, is a transportation center and communications hub, and it is from where goods are distributed to much of the surrounding region.
A leader in paper and board products, Georgia also produces textiles, processed chicken, chemicals and apparel. A few of the important agricultural products are soybeans, cotton, corn, tobacco, peaches and eggs. Georgia also grows more peanuts than any other state. Half of the world supply of turpentine and resins are made from Georgia's pine trees.
Wesleyan College in Macon was the first college in the world chartered to grant degrees to women, and in 1945 Georgia was the first state to lower the legal voting age from 21 to 18.

A New Start
Moving to a new place for retirement, whether it be a planned community in your current town or to an entirely new metropolis, it is the beginning of a new chapter and full of possibilities. It takes a certain amount of courage to leave what is familiar for the unknown, but the rewards are usually worth it. Most people who make the move are looking for the same things, including solid health care facilities, a comfortable climate (which may mean different things to different people), chances to become involved in the new community, access to cultural and recreational amenities and an opportunity to make new friends. While some people dread retirement, savvy people know it can be the beginning of something great!
