"Lovely and quiet"

Three-car garages and circular driveways are not uncommon in this exceptionally beautiful neighborhood. If that does not say it all, then I will tell you more about a little-known place called Niskey Lake (located near the Loch Lomond community of South Fulton County)!

To say that Niskey Lake has stately and extravagantly well-appointed homes just might be a big understatement. Imagine this: a lush, forest-like subdivision in a secluded lake setting surrounded by palatial yet refined homes. It is definitely a superb place for the comfortably well- to-do family; those who have “made it” and are not afraid to express their financial accomplishments through their nearly estate homes!

In (almost) all respects, it is a perfect place for professional families, who value peace and the finer things in life.

The brick and stucco homes that characterize Niskey Lake have gorgeous entry ways, hyper-vaulted ceilings and chandeliers, massive square footage, and ample lot sizes with room to breathe. Even the smaller and older homes in the area are well-kept and quite lovely, too. The wide roads and towering trees only serve to enhance the entire neighborhood. To top it off, it is near a wonderful new South Fulton Amphitheater and Art Center which hosts local plays and events.

For me there remains one mystery – a mystery that keeps this area from being THE perfect place to raise a family. According to my friend who lives there, the public schools that serve Niskey Lake do not rise to the high level of achievement and education of its adult residents. With the growing number of attorneys, doctors and businesspeople living there, I hope this will change soon.
