Braselton

Premier Community with Luxury Living Choices

Braselton spans four counties including Barrow, Gwinnett, Hall, and Jackson and is located about 50 miles northeast of Atlanta. The town is named after Harrison Braselton, a poor dirt farmer who married the daughter of a rich plantation owner. The town once named after a poor farmer is now booming due to its location along the I-85 business corridor. 

Braselton is home to Chateau Elan Winery and Resort, which attracts more than a half a million visitors a year. With luxurious accommodations, an excellent spa, and a scenic golf course, Chateau Elan is a favorite resort for locals and travelers alike. The adjoining Chateau Elan Golf and Residential community offers luxurious homes nearby.

And to top it off, Road Atlanta is also found in Braselton. This 2.54-mile road course is used for professional and amateur sports car and motorcycle races, racing and driving schools, corporate programs, and testing for motorsports teams.

The Atlanta Business Chronicle referred to Braselton as the “node de jour” for development activity on I-85 and it's no wonder that Braselton continues to grow rapidly. In 2015, Northeast Georgia Medical Center opened and Braselton is now home to a full hospital.
