When considering a listing with the descriptor “within walking distance to Historic Roswell” attached, what you see is what you get. Roswell is a town touting its civil war history through a collection of antebellum homes available for tour or events, mill ruins from the cotton gin days, beautiful churches and cemeteries, museums, monuments and historic sites. Just take a drive through the Historic Roswell area and along Canton Street to get a feel for the architecture and the atmosphere– for being OTP, Roswell has plenty going on. On Canton Street alone are art and antique shops, cute boutiques and local eateries that drive Atlanta locals up 400N to get a taste (try Table & Main and SALT Factory). On the third Thursday of every month from April to October “Alive After 5” takes over Canton Street, the Roswell Square and the community corner at Canton St. and Woodstock Rd. for live music, outdoor vendors, face painting and games for kids. The historic district of Roswell will not leave its residents without a place to meet up with friends or to take out-of-town guests.
Bordered by the Chattahoochee River, Roswell residents are frequently seen outdoors – walking, biking, fishing and canoeing. The Chattahoochee Nature Center is a favorite spot for school trips, summer camps and family outings due to their popular butterfly garden, bog garden with carnivorous plants, river boardwalk, and woodland trails. The city’s Old Mill Park skims Vickery Creek and the dam and is just one of many walking trails throughout Roswell.
Roswell is a great place to raise a family. In fact, Zillow notes that one of the top three demographics fall under “country clubbers”: affluent married couples with children who are educated and own their homes. The other two types generally fall under “most eligible” (pre-middle age to middle age singles with high income) and “easy street” (middle-aged married couples living a comfortable life without children).
The city of Roswell is located just north of Dunwoody and Sandy Springs and borders Alpharetta, Johns Creek and Milton. Access to 400 is very convenient, and there is a MARTA rail station where 400 meets Mansell Rd. at exit 8. Neighborhood kids attend Roswell North Elementary, Crabapple Middle School and Roswell High School.
