We moved from Sweden all the way to Seattle in 2007, and what a great decision that turned out to be!
Seattle is a unique place, in so many ways. It’s such a healthy beautiful outdoorsy’ place to be in and raise our 3 daughters in. The air is always crispy clean – fantastic scenery of magical mountains, forest, ocean as well as a beautiful archipelago!
This is the longest we have lived in one place actually – so naturally I am starting to get curious about new locations here in the US. I would not mind a change of scenery, and given we both have flexible Jobs – that makes moving a little easier…(however, we still have a few kids at home – so nothing happening just yet..)
As a fun exercise, I wanted to explore, learn more about certain places- (obviously there is more to it than gorgeous homes … haha) but its just so much fun. Here is what I’m a little extra curious about;
- Naples, Florida
- Charleston, S.Carolina
- Savannah, Georgia
- New Orleans
- Serenbe, Georgia -which I thought I would spend some time on today!
Let me start by sharing some ‘street views’ to put you in the right mindset & mood… New York Times called this area: “Serenbe is a utopian experiment in New Urbanism being molded out of Georgia red clay.”
Serenbe was founded by a couple with a Swedish last name, “Nygren” – must be a sign, right? The couple discovered the property now known as Serenbe on a weekend trip back in 1991. Three years later they sold their home and relocated full-time to Serenbe.
The vision for the community was born in an effort to protect the beautiful land just outside of Atlanta, Chattahoochee Hill Country. The first house was built in 2004 and today the community has over +650 residents, similar size as our Swedish summer town of 700 residents…
Serenbe values nature, creativity and community. A place where connections between people and nature are nourished. This image above reminds me soo much of Sweden…
Let me show you a couple of homes & give you an idea, a visual of this fab’ place…
Not sure about you, but I just LOOVE ALL homes, many of them are being marketed as “Scandinavian” ..
– I recommend you visit their community website, Serenbe.
– Also, make sure to check out their video – it really captures Serenbe, link here.
– Plans on paying a visit, here is where you stay, Serenbe Inn
As I was looking for available homes, I came across this cool townhouse that I really like, – Take a look.
I feel this townhouse has my name on it, what do you think?
Thanks for checking in my friends. I’ve said it before, but I’m honored that you keep coming back. I know I have not been checking in that often, but life/work has just been crazy. Hope to check in more often…
Have a fantastic rest of the week!
All pics ‘borrowed’ from their site – still have to go their myself and take my own pictures. Cannot wait!!!!
