The Developer

Remarkable experiences often originate from a need close to someone’s heart. When it came time for the Isakson family to search for a community for their parents, Ed and Julia Isakson, they were faced with no available alternatives.

Rather than settling for what currently existed in the marketplace, the Isaksons saw an opportunity to help others who found themselves in the same situation. Their goal was to create tasteful living environments within amenity-rich communities, empowering seniors to continue living vibrant lives in warm and secure settings with wellness and care continuum access if required.

Leveraging their knowledge of real estate markets and residential housing, the Isakson Living team pursued a solution for a growing niche of the population who desired the same level of living they had achieved as professionals and community leaders.

Park Springs, in Stone Mountain, was the inaugural project, attracting more than 600 Members and recognized with multiple awards for design, lifestyle and resident satisfaction. Now, Peachtree Hills Place expands to offer an unprecedented model of carefree home ownership for those 55+, with concierge-level services rivaled in the finest clubs, along with engaging social activities to nurture camaraderie among Members.

The Isakson family and Isakson Living team encourage you to experience this unmatched way of life at Peachtree Hills Place.

Each detail has been meticulously crafted by an extraordinary team of professionals who possess a deep knowledge of what our Members desire and need to feel at home. They have assembled a dedicated Peachtree Hills Place Residency Team to serve Members by helping to create delightful experiences and warm memories. You are invited to step inside Peachtree Hills Place and contact one of our Residency Team members.
