Newnan Real Estate & Homes for Sale in Georgia
The community of Newnan is located 26 minutes south of the Atlanta International Airport off of I-85, which makes it convenient for any commuter. Encompassing nearly 18 square miles of beautiful west central Georgian landscape and home to approximately 18,000 residents, Newnan is just southwest of Atlanta, between Georgia and Alabama border.
Newnan was named the "Best Kept Secret" in the Atlanta Metro Area because of its location to the airport, major shopping and variety of restaurants. Every amenity can be found in Newnan within a 5-10 minute drive. The community of Newnan is also the thriving and historically rich county seat of Coweta County.
Newnan is best known as the "City of Homes" thanks to its well-preserved antebellum homes. The region remained virtually untouched by the Civil War, allowing these now historically valuable houses and buildings to remain intact and become a major attraction and source of pride for residents and visitors alike. The National Register of Historic Places lists five districts in this area alone, including sites like the widely known Coweta County courthouse, which in addition to being a local attraction, has been used as the setting in numerous books, films and television features. The Catalpa Plantation and Oak Grove Plantation and gardens are additional popular spots.
Aside from its historical qualities, the reason Newnan is a wonderful place to live, work and play is its "best of both worlds" quality of life, fed by the town's proximity to urban Atlanta while residing just far enough away to enjoy a more laid back, small town lifestyle, complete with good old-fashioned Southern hospitality. The culture, pace and atmosphere of this simultaneously prosperous region attracts people from all walks of life, including famous ones, like country-singer Alan Jackson and singer Toni Braxton. Newnan residents enjoy a low crime rate, mild year-round weather, an excellent school system, transportation infrastructure, cultural, sporting and entertainment facilities, and prosperity in a relaxed environment.
