Being the first homeowners at a community can be a scary thing with thoughts of, Will the builder finish what they started? and all the construction that still needs to happen around the house. But pioneers, Sandy and Bruce Potre were fearless when they learned about Windsong Properties. Below is their story, directly from them. “We started our search about a year and a half ago but didn’t want to go way out to Canton or Gainesville. Powder Springs and Dallas was too far also, but when we saw the Windsong homes out there, we were impressed and very interested. We lived for 29 years in a large multi-level home with miles of stairs. After cleaning up piles of leaves and pulling weeds for all those years, we were done! Our friend Bill told us about Windsong’s new community starting up on Highway 92 and we were immediately excited to build here; the location was a great fit for us. We liked the Carson plan best and could envision ourselves living in this open, single level home. As it were, Bill just closed on his home right behind us! We met Kris, the sales agent, when we visited Bel-Aire; we loved the homes and her kind helpfulness. We were delighted to find that she was the sales agent here at Heron Pond. We signed up for the community email updates, attended the first VIP Preview in February and entered the lottery. By early march we were under contract and excited about our future in The Carson. At that time, there wasn’t a model to view, but after seeing the other Windsong communities, we were confident with the quality, the team and our decision. We lived in East Cobb and really were not interested in changing our habits, but definitely wanted to downsize and enjoy a low maintenance lifestyle. Our biggest priority was to stay close to our grandchildren; we have 4 that visit us often and this plan has a private suite for them, with a separate powder room for guests - I really liked that! Windsong worked with us to change our courtyard patio into an airy sunroom, expanding our indoor living area. We plan to add pavers, cozy fire pit seating and some plantings to our private courtyard this Fall. Bruce’s favorite feature is the hot water recirculator that provides warm water out of the faucet immediately and hot water much faster. Actually it’s a draw; he loves the wonderfully large dual owner’s suite closets! My favorite feature is the people! Windsong’s team was delightful; we have been impressed with all of them throughout this process and they really feel like part of the community. Also we have several friends that we have run into here already, a couple of friends from our bridge group, a couple of our tennis and golfing friends and Bill, of course. It’s nice to see some familiar faces and we have already told our friends about Heron Pond, trying to get them to move here with us. We are so grateful to everyone at Windsong that worked hard to make this home and this community a reality. We can’t wait for the clubhouse to be built, but until then, this house will handle our 12 member bridge team just fine. We are also enjoying exploring the Woodstock area and its shopping and restaurants. This experience has been delightful and we love this home. Life really is a breeze at Heron Pond!
