When it comes to country living that is not too far from the big city, Chattahoochee Hills has all other cities in the Metro Atlanta area beat. A relatively new city, it is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after places to live. Much of the area is rural with beautiful homes in all price ranges that sit on large green or wooded lots. You will also find plenty of farmland, rolling hills, forests, and maybe even an empty lot that is the perfect spot to build your dream home. The city’s namesake, the Chattahoochee River, sits along its northwestern border and Interstate 85 is just a few miles to the southeast. Atlanta is just a 30-minute drive from Chattahoochee Hills, but many residents choose to dine, shop, and find entertainment in neighboring Douglas, Carroll, and Coweta Counties. A few businesses are slowly starting up in the Chattahoochee Hills area, as well, but don’t expect too much commercial activity. The city’s goal is to remain as rural as possible while providing residents with the services they need.
