One of the best kept secrets in the Southeastern United States, you can fully appreciate Peachtree City only by seeing it in person. No description really does justice to this unique and beautiful southern town. Peachtree City has been ranked the best small town to live in the United States. What follows is an attempt at describing what makes Peachtree City one of the best places to live -- anywhere!
MASTERPLAN COMMUNITY:Peachtree City is arguably the most successful masterplan city ever developed in the United States. It has earned much national recognition, including multiple awards as the "Country's Most Desirable Small Town". Peachtree City has been systematically developed to its present population of 36,000 and the expectation is that our maximum population will only be about 40,000. Peachtree City's residents have come from all over the country and, as such, this is not your typical southern town. Peachtree City is probably unlike anywhere else you've ever seen with its natural, aesthetic beauty. Its resort-like appearance reminds many of Hilton Head Island, SC. Many say that living in Peachtree City is like being on a continuous vacation. Most Peachtree City residents are genuinely passionate about their "finding paradise" here.
LOCATION:From Peachtree City, Hartsfield International Airport (one of the world's largest, busiest, and most efficient airports) is a 20-25 minute drive north. Downtown and midtown Atlanta are a 45 minute drive. North Atlanta's suburbs are a 50-60 minute drive. A four lane divided highway connects Peachtree City to the Interstate system just 8 miles away. Peachtree City traffic is generally light and traffic to the airport and downtown Atlanta is much lighter than the routinely clogged highways serving north Atlanta. In Peachtree City, you're far away from the congestion, crime, and problems of the big city. Yet you're close enough to take advantage of its employment opportunities, shopping, cultural events, and professional sports.
AESTHETIC BEAUTY:Strict adherence to a master plan for the continued development and growth of the city, coupled with strict ordinances prohibiting all sorts of things which could detract from the city's appearance, gives Peachtree City a unique, extremely attractive appearance. Preplanning, strict sign ordinances, underground utilities, shopping clustered generally off the major roads, preservation of trees, roadside and median plantings and landscaping, building no homes facing our busy streets, and preserving 25% of the land within the city limits as natural "green belt" never to be developed, all contribute to making Peachtree City one of the prettiest places you'll ever see.
LOCAL SCHOOLS:Peachtree City schools and the Fayette County school system are at the very top of the rankings for the entire state of Georgia. You will be pleased to see that our schools compare favorably with strong school systems across the country. Additionally, several private schools, colleges and universities are within a reasonable commute. Check out these high school rankings.
HEALTH CARE:Over 100 general practitioners and specialists have offices in Peachtree City. There are 3 outpatient facilities, 3 regional hospitals nearby, and our own 110-bed Piedmont Fayette Hospital is just 3 miles from Peachtree City. Piedmont Fayette Hospital has been named one of the nation's Top 20 medium sized community hospitals. Peachtree City has access to LIFEFLIGHT emergency airlift service, operates an emergency ambulance service, and has 911-service for maximum protection.
LOW CRIME RATE:Peachtree City has been cited as having one of the lowest major crime rates of any city in its population range in the entire United States. You are likely to feel more secure about your family's safety here than anywhere else you might live. Our city police force is one of just 14 in Georgia that have been nationally accredited.
HOUSING:Peachtree City's 120-plus subdivisions offer homes of all styles in all price ranges. While there is limited new construction taking place, there is always a sizeable inventory of attractive resale homes on the market. While homes are available in virtually every price range, the average Peachtree City home sells for $291,700. Rental homes and apartments are also available.
PROPERTY TAXES:A simple rule of thumb for estimating Peachtree City property (real estate) taxes is to multiply the purchase price by 1.3%. For example, a Peachtree City home purchased for $300,000 would have annual taxes of about $3,900.
GOLFER'S PARADISE:Peachtree City has 4 excellent golf courses, Flat Creek, Braelinn, Planterra Ridge, and Whitewater Creek. Your membership gives you and your family full playing privileges at all 4 of these courses, and playing privileges at more than 20 additional area courses, as well. All are very well maintained, challenging courses, which host tournaments such as the U.S. Open Qualifying. The one time initiation is very low and the dues VERY affordable. Dues may be paid monthly or annually. Excellent driving ranges, swimming pools, tennis courts and locker room facilities are located at each club. See ClubCorp Peachtree City Region for details.
CART PATHS:A unique feature is our network of over 90 miles of paved paths connecting virtually all areas of the city. These paths are used for walking, jogging, roller blading, bicycling, and golf carts. The natural setting of these paths, usually in city maintained "green belt" areas, makes their use both enjoyable and relaxing. The cart path system is one of Peachtree Cityís most enjoyed amenities. Please see this Peachtree City Tour by golf cart. And then see this article about PTC's golf carts.
GOLF CARTS:A large number of Peachtree City residents, including non-golfers, own a golf cart, and make use of the cart path system for joyrides, shopping, or just getting around town. Our incidence of golf carts is second only to Palm Springs, CA.
TWO 250 ACRE LAKES:Visibly prominent in your travels throughout Peachtree City are two beautiful lakes available to residents for fishing, canoeing, and boating with battery operated motor.
SENIOR CITIZENS:A very active Fayette Senior Services organization conducts a wide range of group activities such as arts and crafts, bridge, bingo, swimming, choir, fund raisers, and the annual Seniors Olympics. A well-equipped 4,500 square foot senior citizen center serves as the headquarters for seniors' activities and also provides a daily gathering place for seniors to congregate. It's appropriately named "The Gathering Place".
RECREATIONAL AMENITIES:In addition to its golf courses, lakes, and cart paths, listed below are numerous amenities which enhance the quality of life in Peachtree City:
"Itís a great place to raise a family!"
"It's a great place to retire!"
"You'll love to call it your home!"
