Golf-cart communities are popping up across the country. With a high sense of self-containment and tranquility, it is no wonder that they are becoming more and more popular. Join the trend by purchasing a new home site and building a dream home at Flint River Preserve. Georgia's first four-star, green-certified development encourages golf-cart traveling in an attempt to make the community even more of a green space and reduce its environmental footprint.

"To obtain the requirements of the National Green Building Standard, we strive to protect the community's environmentally sensitive areas," stated Marilyn Bowen, owner of Flint River Preserve. "In addition to building homes that follow distinct design guidelines and focus on using local materials, golf-cart traveling helps us preserve the native vegetation on the site."

In addition to being environmentally-friendly, Bowen explained that homeowners love not having to start their cars to access all of the amenities that Flint River Preserve has to offer. More than 70 percent of the 376-acre, gated community is communal space consisting of five stocked fishing lakes, nature trails, wildlife habitat and agricultural land. Additional amenities include a community orchard, community garden and pavilion with children's play fort and built-in kitchen and fireplace.

"Homeowners can just hop in their golf-carts and take in the beauty of the surroundings," continued Bowen. "This preferred mode of traveling definitely adds to the uniqueness and serenity of the community."

Those who live in Flint River Preserve have the best of both worlds. In addition to enjoying the simplicity of nature inside the gates, modern conveniences are just minutes away. Numerous shops, restaurants and entertainment can be found in nearby downtown Cordele and Albany.

"Coming home to nature, where life is simple" is definitely easier to do on a golf cart. For more information on Flint River Preserve and its green lifestyle, contact Marilyn Bowen at 229-425-3887 or visit www.FlintRiverPreserve.com.
