Township at Mulberry Park, Braselton, GA
June 9, 2009
Turn into the Mulberry Park entrance from HWY 211, stop and pick-up a good cup of coffee, or something for dinner, pass the beautiful shade tree in roundabout and you’re home. The Township at Mulberry Park is situated at the crossroads of 4 counties to include: Barrow, Gwinnett, Hall and Jackson, yet still maintains that “off the beaten path” feel. Nearly 500 single family homes and townhomes make up this mostly craftsman style community, with some developed lots still available. Students attend one of the Winder/Barrow, Mill Creek, Jackson High School or Flowery Branch school clusters, according to the county of his/her address.
Like many other areas, the Township at Mulberry Park has faced its share of foreclosures and distress sales. The many beautifully landscaped and manicured home sites, next to some which have been left without occupants and routine care are evidence of that. However, this community appears to have an active HOA and residents who care about its overall well being. Hopefully, as the foreclosures are purchased and occupied by new neighbors, the current residents will see some welcome relief. According to a current resident, a new builder is purchasing lots to resume home building in the community. Though no timeline was offered, this is hopefully a good sign of things to come.
