Burnt Hickory Lakes consists of 197 homes, which range from 3,000 to over 5,000 square feet situated on large mature wooded lot sites with sidewalks and a lengthy walking trail along two wonderful small lakes that give us our namesake. Our residents enjoy tennis, volleyball and basketball courts. All summer long our families gather at the fantastic pool and enjoy the gourmet outdoor kitchen. Kids both young and old love the waterfall and water slide feature of our pool with the safety of a lifeguard keeping watch.
We reside in one of the best school districts in Cobb County. Nearby is Ford Elementary, reached by school bus or a sixty second drive enjoys the highest elementary test scores in the county and employs the most experienced educators as well. Ford is a multiple award winner when it comes to STEAM (science, technology, engineering and math), innovative learning gardens that draw admirers from across the region, along with the art and music programs recognized statewide for creativity. Durham Middle School on Mars Hill Rd prepares students for Harrison High School which is recognized as among one of the top three public high schools in Cobb County. Our families built these schools, have invested in them and are very proud to highlight them as being so critical to our community.
We have the best neighbors, as within one mile of our front & back entrances are both Publix and Kroger groceries, along with both Walgreen’s and Rite Aid, with even more than a dozen great restaurants, shops, bakery, pediatricians, dentists, hardware store, Cobb County Public Library and Northwest Family YMCA.
