Just north of Atlanta you’ll find a community of homes nestled around a 200-acre, private lake enveloped by natural beauty and a sense of calm. This is Windward, an extensive development featuring 44 unique neighborhoods with homes ranging from $400,000 to over $4 million.

Make a splash

A major draw for residents of this community is the Windward Lake Club. Members have access to a 100-slip marina and the lake where they can enjoy canoeing, kayaking, sailing, relaxing on a pontoon boat or catch-and-release fishing. They can also take advantage of a first-class tennis center with 20 lighted, hard-surface courts and 2 clay courts, multiple tennis teams, and professional tennis instructors. Additionally, the club boasts numerous swim activities including a 150-foot water slide, spray park, pools, diving well and a top-ranked swim team.


If golf is your game, residents can join the Golf Club of Georgia, ranked by Golf Digest as the 11th best place to golf in Georgia. The club recently underwent a $40 million renovation. It features two Arthur Hill-designed courses and a 20,000 square foot clubhouse. If you’re looking to improve your game, the club is home to The Crupp Golf Academy which features instruction for people of all ages and skill levels.

Sipping and spending

There are numerous dining and shopping options on nearby Windward Parkway. Or, make a short drive to historic downtown Alpharetta with several trendy restaurants and boutiques lining its main streets. The revitalized downtown area also includes City Hall, a library and a 5-acre public park.

Windward is minutes away from Avalon, a popular Alpharetta live-work-play community featuring a mix of national retailers, high-end boutiques, unique eateries, and a variety of entertainment events throughout the year.

Head of the class

If academics is important to you, Windward children attend some of the best schools in metro-Atlanta. In fact, Alpharetta High was named the 6th best high school in Georgia by U.S. News & World Report. It offers advanced placement classes as well as an International Baccalaureate degree program. A brand-new public magnet STEM high school, Innovation Academy, is scheduled to open in downtown Alpharetta in the fall of 2021.
