Nestled in a small section of Roswell that has Cobb County taxes is the popular Loch Highland subdivision. In the late 1970's, developer Earl McMillen was looking to achieve the second-home concept of having a home that could double as a lake house or a mountain house and still be less than an hour away from downtown Atlanta.
Lots of development has popped up around Loch Highland, yet it remains a secluded and wooded enclave that feels more like a resort than a subdivision. Loch Highland is popular for not only it's serene setting, but mostly for its amenity package. The nearly 50-acre lake is stocked with fish. Members of Loch Highland are allowed to fish the lake, but most exercise the catch and release concept. Two pools, four tennis courts and a clubhouse make for a very active community.
Each home is positioned for maximum privacy and to take advantage of the natural setting. The lots are low maintenance because the trees were not clear-cut. In ensure the integrity of Loch Highland, homeowners still to this day, cannot remove trees without the homeowner associations' permission.
There are approximately 360 homes in Loch Highland, virtually all a ‘California Contemporary' design in various styles ranging from small one story ranches to three story homes with floor-ceiling glass walls. Those on the lake offer spectacular views! Square footage of the homes in Loch Highland range from 2,200-5,000 square feet and prices range from $200,000-$500,000.
