  • Sweet Bottom Plantation Duluth GA:

    Originally Cherokee Indian territory, Duluth was settled in 1818 as Howell Crossing with the creation of Gwinnett County. It was renamed Duluth in honor of the railroad that linked Duluth GA with Duluth MN.

    In 2001, Readers Digest named Duluth GA one of the Best 100 cities in America. Duluth is where big city meets old southern charms. Duluth follows the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s ‘Main Street Program’. Downtown Duluth is a community center and gathering place that offers shopping fun, good food and entertainment. All downtown businesses are locally owned and consistently provide quality products. Downtown is also home to a fantastic outdoor amphitheatre and Town Green. Each year the city hosts free festivals, concerts, movies and other entertainment. Even a pre-season Braves game.

    Duluth GA is conveniently located between the City of Atlanta and the north Georgia Mountains. Only 30 minutes north of downtown Atlanta and all the Peach City has to offer. Take in a show at the Fox Theatre, visit the High Museum of Art, or gear-up for a Falcon’s home game. Atlanta has it all. If you follow the Chattahoochee River north you’ll find Lake Lanier, Georgia’s premier lake for water recreation only 20 minutes away. Or for a more relaxed afternoon, just walk from your home down to the river and drop a line in.

  • Influencing the diversity of styles at Sweetbottom Plantation are:

    Savannah – Saved from the ravages of the Civil War, Savannah was founded along the Savannah River in 1733. The founder James Oglethorpe laid out the city with 24 perfectly arranged squares. Surrounded by beautifully detailed antebellum homes, each square is a tree shaded garden with a monument dedicated to an individual with ties to the city.

    Charleston- Founded in 1670, homes in Charleston reflect the diversity of styles one would expect from a bustling port city. Unique to Charleston is the Single House plan. A style of design evolved from the narrow lots, laid out in the city master plan of 1725, and the long hot and humid summers of the south. The homes featured a street entrance, while the actual front entrance was along the side of the house. Long shaded porches and open floor plans provided ventilation and comfort from the long days of summer heat.

    The Garden District of New Orleans – Most people are at least casually aware of the Creole influence of the famed French Quarter. The Garden District is more of a blend of classic styles from the French, Spanish, Italian and especially Greek revival. Both inside and out, these homes were highlighted with ornate cast-iron, bronze and crystal chandeliers, exquisite molding, marble mantels and lush gardens. While the various influences may sound chaotic, they combine to create a uniquely American classic style that blends harmoniously.

    New England – While stately homes from New England may seem out of place in an area rich with southern antebellum, the exact opposite is true. Much of the southern architecture takes its influences from the northeastern coast. The inclusion of these homes is entirely complimentary to the community.

    As much detail as the outside of the homes have, inside is no less impressive. Grand entrances, twelve-foot ceilings, elegant interior moldings, and even stained glass add to the grandeur of these incredible houses. More modern amenities include private swimming pools, multiple fireplaces, elevators, sun rooms, granite counter tops, and nanny suites. With a large assortment of styles and amenities to choose from, each home at Sweetbottom Plantation has a unique character and charm all its own.

    Mathematics of Property Tax Example (Gwinnett):

    To determine the amount of your property taxes, several values are needed. These values are the Fair Market Value (FMV), Assessed Value (ASV), and the Millage Rate. The Millage Rate is defined as dollars per $1,000.00 of assessed value. For 2006, the Millage Rate for Gwinnett County has been set at $32.27 per $1000.00 or the decimal equivalent of .03227.

    Fair Market Value (F.M.V.) X 40% = Assessed Value

    Assessed Value X Millage = Tax

    Millage is usually expressed as dollars per $1,000.00 of Assessed Value

    Example: In 2006, Gwinnett County's millage rate is set at .03227. If your property has a FMV of $500,000, the ASV would be 40% or $200,000. Multiply the ASV of $200,000 by the millage rate of .03227 to determine your property taxes. In this example, property taxes would be $6,454.00
