So, we ot some lunch at Steak and Shake (my first time. It was pretty darn good) and then headed to a complex called the Arbors at Sandy Springs. It was right in the same area, like a block away from Foxcroft, close enough to the train into town and also pretty near the temple.
We immediately liked the simple architecture and the 2-story townhome layouts here. Each building had bushes and a little bit of grass immediately in front of it, with a larger grassy area in a courtyard between each building.
We were very surprised to find that they were build around the same time as the foxcroft condos. They seemed much more upkept. Both of the units that we looked at had very up-to-date kitchens, with a stackable washer and dryer under the stairs, pristine cabinets, stainless steel fridge, stove and dishwasher and a sweet granite bar seperating the dining space and kitchen. They also had a cute little back patio with a gate going out into the courtyard. There was a little pool, newer double-paned windows. Also, it seemed more diverse. Foxcroft had lots of elderly occupants, but we saw a variety of folks at The Arbors.
Smaller, but in a nice location, good community, few necessary changes. We plan to make an offer tomorrow!
