Milton Real Estate
A tranquil, country-chic locale mere minutes from downtown Atlanta
Milton is an affluent, rural oasis tucked in North Fulton county, a quick drive from both downtown Atlanta and the bustling Buckhead neighborhood. The community is careful to maintain its rural heritage while embracing innovation and forward-thinking ideas. This unique balance offers Milton residents an exceptional quality of life.
Milton was historically farmland until it was officially incorporated in 2006 as a way of preserving the charming, rural atmosphere and lifestyle the community is known for.
