On Saturday, July 11 and Sunday July 12, Lennar Atlanta, a division of Lennar (NYSE:LEN), the second largest homebuilder in the United States, welcomes new home buyers to the model grand opening at Blackstone, its popular new home neighborhood in Cumming (Forsyth).

Family Homes at Blackstone
Blackstone offers 3-sides brick homes on spacious homesites from the $400s, located on Old Atlanta Road in the heart of Cumming. Residents appreciate the quiet cul-de-sacs, scenic views and proximity to top-ranked schools, including South Forsyth High, as well as great area shopping and dining. Homes range in size from 2,920 to 4,080 sq. ft. and feature 4 to 6 bedrooms and 3 to 4 bathrooms.
Forsyth is for Families – Then and Now
Before Lennar Atlanta’s Blackstone community was built here, the land was owned by descendants of two Blackstock brothers, who emigrated from Antirm County in Ireland to the United States in the 1700s.
Mrs. Wanda Jennings recalls her family’s farm here: “This was a precious place, and the whole family gathered here every Sunday afternoon. In the summer time, we would find a cool spot under some of the big pecan trees and eat ice cream or some of our Dad’s juicy yellow watermelon.
She describes how her grandmother loved flowers, especially dahlia’s, petunia’s and larkspur. “Dahlia’s were her pride and joy – I still remember how pleased she was to show us one bloom that covered an entire dinner plate,” smiles Mrs. Jennings. “The whole front yard was one field of flowers.”
Rooted in the Future
Now, new families will be settling into Lennar Atlanta’s Blackstone neighborhood in South Forsyth. The single family homes are well-crafted and built according to Lennar’s exacting standards. “We like the look of these new homes, they are really beautiful,” says Mrs. Jennings.
Cumming is growing fast, while it is still maintaining it small town atmosphere. People who move to the area like the ease of getting around, the excellent school system including Lanier Technical College and a branch of North Georgia College, and the many job opportunities that are springing up.
“It is a great place for both growing families as well as active adults who want to live closer to their children and grandchildren,” according to Mrs. Jennings. “We sure had a great time growing up here, and we wish nothing but the best to the new families moving into Lennar Atlanta’s Blackstone neighborhood.”
“New home buyers in the greater Atlanta metropolitan area recognize Lennar’s commitment to excellence,” notes Ginny Bryant, Director of Sales and Marketing for Lennar Atlanta. “We are known for our well-designed homes, generous open floorplans and our detailed, quality craftsmanship. Our carefully planned communities are centrally located near good schools and growing business centers, including Blackstone in Cumming.”
Each Lennar Atlanta community has its own comprehensive set of Everything’s Included features. Interested homebuyers are encouraged to learn more about this program when visiting Blackstone, or when exploring any one of the beautiful Lennar Atlanta communities throughout the year.
Since opening its Georgia headquarters in July 2010, Lennar Atlanta has built more than 1,200 single family residences and townhomes in 30+ communities throughout Georgia, mainly along Atlanta’s northern crescent.
