Ballground encompasses portions of Forsyth and Cherokee Counties. There are quite a few new subdivisions - but the feel is definitely woodsy.
I have acquiantances and clients who live there & they see wildlife regularly.
It is quite a way from the major arteries into the airport - coupled with the traffic from the ever growing subdivisions - 1 1/2 hours is really optimistic depending on departure time.
It is 59.7 miles 1hr 6 mins (but watch for the Atlanta Traffics which could double the commute time)
West Atlanta still offers the best commute traffic wise and house prices are good. If we can help let us know?
