Lenox Park in Cartersville, GA
Lenox Park is probably one of my favorite new subdivisions in Bartow County. The entrance is located just off the South Bridge on South Erwin Street. You should be able to see it dead center here.
Although the subdivision could use a little more in the way of landscaping, it does has a nice Williamsburg/Jamestown look to it. The subdivision is arranged in a large rectangle with large two story houses + 2-car garages lining the longer sides and smaller 2 story houses with carports lining the ends (only one end for now, they haven’t started on all the houses).
Most, if not all, have built-in cabinetry/bookcases in the living room with multiple coaxial cable outlets around the room for your TV(s). The bedrooms are a fair size, unless you get one of the smaller houses, then they are going to be noticably smaller (especially the master bedroom).
You won’t find any laminated countertops in these houses either. I don’t know what they actually used, but in one of them that I walked into, the kitchen looked to have a granite appearance(it’s not). The bathrooms had some type of molded white acrylic/polyethylene, while better than a laminated countertop, it doesn’t match up with the kitchen.
Fees! Oh God! The Fees!
I know, just when the subdivision seemed too good to be true. I hate HOA fees just as much as the next person. What really got too me though was the “Initiation Fee.” This isn’t a Frat is it?
- Home Owner’s Association Dues: $450/Yr
- Initiation Fee: $800 (A one time only ‘BS’ fee)
One Last Note
The houses are really more like townhomes, as you can’t walk between them to get from the front to the back. The garages on the larger houses are all built together. On the smaller homes, the laundry rooms in the back are built as one. The overall appearance is that they are all separate, but they aren’t.
