Windward is a nationally recognized master-planned community located in Alpharetta GA, North of downtown Atlanta. Master planned communities such as Windward typically involve a huge parcel or parcels of land bought and developed by one developer with a concept that involves residential housing, retail and offices. Windward is an early example of this concept dating back to the early 80s. The community has since grown to well over 1000 homes and has also become a magnet for large corporations and executives, with regional and national headquarters for ADP, FedEx and others located within Windward.
And what about Lake Windward? Lake Windward is a spectacular 195 acre man made lake with a Marina. Interestingly the Lake does allow for sailing and boating but out of respect to keeping the noise factor to a minimum does not allow gas powered boats or jet skis.
Windward has other great amenities as well, including golf, tennis, swimming, and soccer fields, plus extensive walking paths around Lake Windward. There is also a Sports Park with playground equipment and even a Dog Park with separate areas for large and small dogs. The golf courses, 36 holes developed by the Fuji Corporation, are well-known and has played host to PGA tour events in the past and is the annual host of the US Collegiate Championship. Interestingly and unusual for Metro Atlanta, Fuji has planted extensive landscaping around the courses, so you don’t have the typical scenic golf views from the homes and roads throughout the neighborhood.
But let’s turn back to the residents of Windward for a moment. The community is a collection of 43 (yes, 43) distinct neighborhoods with prices ranging from the low $200s to in the millions for custom built homes on Lake Windward. All homeowners belong to the Master Association and have access to the Sports Park and Dog Park- membership to the Golf Club of Georgia and to the Lake Windward Club (swimming, tennis and Marina) and separate and private to include residents and others in the area who choose to join. And Windward also has its own private security force that patrols the development.
Add in the excellent Alpharetta schools, shopping and dining nearby plus its convenient location next to GA Hwy 400- you can see that Windward has much to offer. If you are interested in living in Windward, search Windward homes for sale here- and feel free to contact us for more information.
