Millcroft Wins Community of the Year! 

The Millcroft neighborhood in Buford, GA, was designed using the elevated style and high-quality materials The Providence Group is known for. With new single-family and townhome floor plans, the community boasts uncompromising style and excellent value. Starting from the $400s, this community is ideal for homebuyers looking for an affordable, luxury neighborhood with incredible amenities. 

The home exterior includes cohesive, mixed use designs with a manicured lawn and spacious front porches. Inside the homes, floor plan details have secondary bedrooms for guests, open-concept living areas alongside formal entertaining spaces, and owner-on-main options (per plan). Unique features vary between homes, but they include built-ins, additional flex spaces, and style details like trim and fixtures that help make your new lifestyle truly elevated.

The luxury amenities at Millcroft are second to none. We’ve included a resort-style swimming pool with oversized sun decks, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a large custom pavilion, a stone fireplace, an outdoor grilling and catering kitchen, and numerous green spaces and pocket parks with community firepits. 

Millcroft Wins Again! Best Community Service Project for 2023 St. Jude Dream Home

The 2023 St. Jude Dream Home in Millcroft won a Gold OBIE for Best Community Service Project. This was the first St. Jude Dream Home built in Atlanta, GA.

The Providence Group shares this achievement with the incredible team at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and all the vendors who played a crucial role in making this new home build a reality.
