Parkside at Mason Mill Makes a Splash in Atlanta this Summer with Resort-Inspired Amenities
Pulte Homes Debuts Clubhouse, Pool and Social-Centric Vibe with New Lifestyle Director at Dekalb County Community Featuring New Luxury Single-Family Homes and Townhomes in Decatur, Georgia
The newly debuted amenities include a large swimming pool with extensive patio surround for sunbathing and socializing. At the heart and soul of it all is a sprawling clubhouse that evokes the impression of a classic country club. Outside, expansive upper and lower decks are perfect for summer socials and outdoor entertaining, while inside, Parkside residents will benefit from an internet café, fitness room, game room with darts and shuffle board, and a large gathering room for both neighborhood events and private parties. To help create a sense of community by keeping the event calendar full, Parkside at Mason Mill also boasts a year-round lifestyle director. As if all that weren't enough to keep residents entertained, a pedestrian access trail connects the community to the 137+-acre Mason Mill Park and its playgrounds, picnic pavilions, recreation center, tennis courts, lake, trails and more.
"In addition to serving as an extension of our very well-received models at Parkside, the Pulte Interiors design team drew inspiration from the parks, greenspace, trees and trails in a desire to create a parklike setting for the amenities and clubhouse," said Michelle Horstemeyer, Pulte Homes' Georgia Director of Land Planning & Entitlement. "We renovated an existing building and knocked out walls to completely reimagine the interior of the clubhouse. A portion of the clubhouse is devoted to a state-of-the-
Horstemeyer added that a great deal of attention was given to creating a sense of community and connectivity between the amenities and the neighborhood through elements like the big social decks connecting the clubhouse and pool and the bridge from the deck to Phases 1 and 2 in Parkside at Mason Mill. She said that Pulte Homes wanted to foster a sense of ownership of the clubhouse and amenities among residents – a place that is theirs to use for things like baby showers, retirement parties, birthday celebrations and more. To plan activities, establish special interest clubs and create a calendar of events for the multigenerational, multicultural community, Pulte Homes hired Lifestyle Director Lynette Francis.
"With an active lifestyle program in place, residents get to experience the amazing benefits of living a community-focused life," said Francis. "When creating a Lifestyle program for a specific community, I put volunteer committees in place that act as the voices of the community to help me establish clubs, plan events and more. Some of the current active clubs at Parkside at Mason Mill are the Tuesday Tea Club, Hiking Club, Kids Club, Book Club and Art Club, with several more in development. We have a number of Games Nights monthly which include ping pong, shuffleboard, darts, Jenga and board games. We host holiday social events, pool parties and the highly successful monthly 'First Friday Potluck Social.' The clubhouse has quickly become a home away from home for our residents. It is where you can find our residents hanging out, playing games, studying for exams or just watching a sporting event in the main room. One of the benefits I think is unique to Parkside is our relationship with neighboring Mason Mill Park and its 'Naturalists Program,' which provides opportunities for informational nature walks, bird strolls and creek explorations. What an awesome amenity to have in your back yard!"
The amenity package is at the core of the community, which is surrounded by two distinctive home collections – The Reserve and The Overlook. The Reserve showcases innovatively designed single-family homes priced from the low $600s where residents will find their "happy place" amid the sprawling owner's suite, gourmet kitchen and inviting array of gathering spaces. On the other hand, The Overlook features luxury Decatur townhomes from the mid $400s with thoughtfully planned, Life Tested® interiors that bring true meaning to the phrase "living spaces." The new amenities are now open at Parkside at Mason Mill. To learn more about Parkside at Mason Mill and its new amenity package, interested parties are encouraged to visit www.pultehomes.com/
