A Place to Imagine, Live , Grow and Prosper – Historic Norcross – Two Homes Remain at Parkside Norcross

History is important and Norcross is brimming with undiscovered history, places and charm.  Readily accessible from major highways, yet tucked quietly away, Norcross, Georgia is a charming antidote to modern suburbia. With a rich variety of well-preserved historic homes and an authentic turn-of-the-century downtown district, Norcross turns back the clock to simpler times and small-town American life.

In the late 1800’s , an Atlanta entrepreneur J.J. Thrasher purchased 250 acres around the first stop north along the proposed Richmond Danville rail lines. One year later, the area was incorporated. Thrasher named the new town for his good friend and fellow entrepreneur Jonathan Norcross, who was also the fourth mayor of Atlanta. Eventually, Norcross became known as “Atlanta’s Favorite Summer Resort,” and beginning in 1878, a commuter train called the “Airline Belle” made round trips twice a day, carrying visitors between Atlanta and Norcross.

Gwinnett County is approximately 30 miles northeast of Atlanta with access to major highways like I-85 and I-985.  It has easy access to University of Georgia at Athens via Hwy 316.  Home of Lake Lanier, Gwinnett County is a cultural center with entertainment and sports with easy access to local parks, malls , great eateries and minor leaque baseball by Gwinnett Stripers, formerly known as the Gwinnett Braves,  a professional minor league baseball team.

Norcross is the second oldest city in Gwinnett County and was the first to be placed on the Register of Historic Places. Tree-lined sidewalks invite leisurely strolls through the residential districts, winding through beautiful parks and into the revitalized downtown.

Come and check out this charming area and while you are there, grab some dinner at one of Historic Norcross’s great eateries and check out Parkside Norcross located on Canton Street.  Historic Norcross is an inviting historic area located near the hub of downtown.  Parkside features a live/work component, the first of its kind in the City of Norcross, which enables the occupant to operate a small business out of their home.

The historic location is ideal and with its small town charm, good schools, low crime rate, and convenient access to interstates, major highways, office parks, Gwinnett activities, and the City of Atlanta, Norcross is the ideal place to call home. Come out and tour the professionally decorated Model Home at Parkside Norcross and imagine a life well lived in a new home.

Parkside Norcross is very definitely walkable.  There are many events being held throughout the year and good eats and great shopping are all within walking distance and the community overlooks Lillian Webb Park.  Building three story row houses, Parkside has sold out quickly and only two remain.

Parkside Norcross is a one of a kind residential community designed to capture the classic architecture of the Row Houses of the 20’s and 30’s. Each home features 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, large porches, hardwood floors, granite countertops, and open living areas with spectacular views. Some homes overlook the park.  See Floorplan
