New Residential Garden Hamlet in Kennesaw

What a refreshing concept – single family residences being built within walking distance of downtown Kennesaw.

Kennesaw based real estate development company, Sanctuary Companies, Inc. has broken ground on Galt Commons, a Signature Collection of cottage homes by Sanctuary Companies. Inspired by historical architecture, yet designed for modern living, each home is uniquely positioned on the historic Galt Farm to encourage porch-side conversations, cultivate gardens, create a community, all the while within a few footsteps of the new renaissance occurring in downtown Kennesaw.


Now preselling, Galt Commons™ offers 42 homes with 9 distinctly different models ranging from 1065 square feet to 1936 square feet.  Each home is connected to extensive walking paths, outdoor fireplaces, community gardens, and a community pool with a barn style gathering cabana. Located on the site of the Historic 1864 Galt House on Cherokee Street, it is footsteps away from Depot Park and its new improvements, restaurants, coffee houses, breweries, along with the various festivals planned each year. Galt Commons™ will blend old and new seamlessly. To create this new downtown garden hamlet, the original two Historic homes located on the property have been incorporated into the neighborhood and will be completely renovated with the same attention to detail and finishes as the new cottages.

“Kennesaw is our home,” said Sanctuary Companies CEO Chad Howie. “I fell in love with the original Galt house, known for many years as the Rose Cottage, on my first trip through Kennesaw years ago. We had the opportunity to purchase it and bring back the circa 1864 charm that was covered by years of remodeling. It is now an amazing representation of 1860’s period homes inside and out. When the opportunity came to reassemble the remaining Galt property that had been sold off over the years, we acquired it knowing that we could build a unique and innovative community. When complete, the residents and their visitors will be able to enjoy evenings by the outdoor fireplaces, socialize at the Pool Barn, compare gardening tips in their private gardens, or just walk downtown to take in some live music at the new Depot Park Amphitheater. We chose this location for its proximity to all that the festive Kennesaw Entertainment District has to offer and the rich history we could build on.”

The project design uniquely reflects the Kennesaw Historic District Architectural Standards while incorporating the site design standards of the Central Business District Form Based Code. Pedestrian through-ways will utilize landscaping, pathways, and private gardens to create distinct, vibrant, and active spaces. The houses are priced from 299,900.00 to 489,900.00. There are 9 distinct models, each with different price points.
