Be Serene—combine the two words and you get Serenbe, a 1,000-acre community that integrates the lush landscape of the Georgia countryside with a compact, environmentally-oriented mixed-use development of three hamlets: Selborne, Grange, and Mado.
Located 30 miles southwest of Atlanta, Serenbe is nestled in the heart of 40,000 acres of forest—now incorporated as the City of Chattahoochee Hills—protected by a development plan that preserves 70 percent of the area’s green space. A centerpiece of the Serenbe community is the 25-acre, organic Serenbe Farms, which not only supplies produce to a weekly farmer’s market and onsite and regional restaurants, but also helps to forge a sense of identity for the overall development.
Integrating agriculture with homes is only part of the molding of a balanced community. With pedestrian-oriented village cores that consist of retail, restaurants, galleries, and office space, Serenbe is projected to include 1,000 to 1,200 homes and live/work units and up to 250,000 square feet of commercial among miles of trails, stables, pastures, wetlands, and forests.
