Cresswind at Lake Lanier is a gated 55+ retirement community offering quality new homes for sale on the southeast side of Lake Lanier and named the 50+ Housing Community of the Year by the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association (2012 OBIE Awards). Located in Gainesville, Georgia—ranked among the top ten most affordable communities for retirees by AARP Magazine. The active adult community is less than an hour from downtown Atlanta in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains. An Audubon-designated sanctuary, Cresswind combines direct lake access and 214 acres of preserved open space with a full suite of social and recreational amenities designed for a fulfilling active adult lifestyle in a unique village setting.

Cresswind's new 40,000-square-foot clubhouse is the centerpiece of community life, with indoor and outdoor swimming pools, meeting and activity rooms, a demonstration kitchen and a rooftop bar. Adjacent to the clubhouse are tennis and pickleball courts, an open-air amphitheater and a community boathouse and marina on Lake Lanier, which is a prime destination for trophy bass fishing.

The property is 10 minutes from shops, restaurants and commercial services in downtown Gainesville, and convenient to the many attractions of nearby Atlanta. Energy-efficient two-, three- and four-bedroom homes with two-car garages range from 1,356 to 2,694 square feet, with prices beginning in the low $200,000s. Quick move-in homes available.
