(ALERT: We have downgraded our rating for this community from our 'best' list to our 'watch' list, so buyer's still have access to information about this Northern Georgia mountain community. An online auction is scheduled for June 26, 2014 for the unsold real estate land parcels and the winery.)

Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia, this Dahlonega neighborhood is a Tuscan-style master planned community folding beautifully into a thriving working vineyard producing delicious award winning wines available on wine tours in Georgia. The intimate village reflects Old World Italian architecture with a backdrop of rolling hills and mature hardwood trees. As roads weave through the community, a stacked stone bridge leads residents and visitors over a rushing stream to the winery. We find Montaluce appealing because of its location in one of the best Georgia small towns.

MONTALUCE AMENITIES:

  • 25,000 Square Foot Clubhouse with dining overlooking the vineyards
  • Outdoor Swimming Pool

The centerpiece of Montaluce is its 25,000 square foot clubhouse. The modern winery and delicious restaurant is named Le Vigne. Le Vigne has been named the Most Romantic Restaurant and Best Ambiance by Open Table.  If you're like us, time seems to stand still as you enjoy the long range mountain views overlooking the vineyards while taking a wine flight from your table ( sampling ) during lunch or dinner. How nice to not have to leave your master planned community for a dinner of this caliber although there are plenty of great choices in one of the most charming Georgia small towns, Dahlonega. 

Walking around the neighborhood is easy because of the gentle topography. You sense spaciousness by the open patterned vineyards dotting the horizon as the sounds of nature tickle your senses. To us, the outdoor swimming pool seemed a bit understated such as wooden picnic tables around the pool verses quality patio chairs, although completed amenities built early on are always a plus verses undelivered promises by a real estate developer. This is an easy fix and we look forward to seeing Montaluce's progress.

Up to this point, we have not seen a master planned community in the Southeast focused around an active winery included in the wine tours in Georgia. 300 homes are planned ranging from 1 to 3 acres. Also on the planning board, 2 and 3 bedroom cottage homes, tennis courts and a proposed spa. To date 19 homes and villas have been built to date. Lots start in the $60k's and homes for sale in northern GA at Montaluce are priced in the mid $500k's. Some of the lots border the Etowah River. The planned cottage homes are projected to be priced in the $200k's.

When you compare the cost of living against the northeastern states, you'll find Dahlonega is one of the most affordable cities in northern Georgia. Dahlonega has a charming historic square with many delicious restaurants and unique boutiques. Quality medical care is also nearby along with the North Georgia College and State University.

Our real estate score for Montaluce in Dahlonega Georgia is 68.

When you travel to explore the best Georgia small towns and homes for sale in northern GA, let us know if you would like receive free Dahlonega relocation information to help you learn more about the area.

We're happy to share our secrets with you, to make your search more enjoyable.
