Two of the Top Ranked Retirement Communities in North Atlanta

Nov 14, 2018

Marietta Partners Have Developed Two Senior Living Neighborhoods – Sterling Estate East Cobb and West Cobb

Listed in the AJC as two of the top ranked retirement communities in North Atlanta.

We toured both of the Sterling Estates properties in Marietta and left thinking that the team behind these senior living communities really thought of everything. The extra details – the little things, which normally might be overlooked perhaps because of cost-cutting measures were graciously in place. It’s as if the developer had designed the property for his own parents.

Turns out, in fact, that’s exactly the mindset which motivated the six partners – with over 125 years of combined senior living industry experience – to embark on these projects. These individuals are committed to providing the finest lifestyle, services and care for their residents; born of the desire to offer their own family members nothing but the best.

Three of the six partners are Marietta locals – so there were no questions in their minds when deciding where to locate these properties. Sterling Estates Managing Partner Mike Brown tells us that every aspect of planning, designing and developing Sterling Estates had one primary objective, “What would we want for our own loved ones?”

In partnership with families, Sterling’s commitment is to encourage and empower each resident to stay active and independent by focusing on wellness and socialization activities that promote physical and mental stimulation, which is proven to enhance quality of life.

Sterling Estates’ two senior living communities are located in East Cobb and West Cobb, with a future development underway in Cumming, Sterling Estates of Forsyth. Unlike typical senior living communities, these are built on substantial acreage with plenty of green space and room for extensive outdoor amenities for residents’ enjoyment and use.

Sterling Estates is owned and managed locally by partners (L to R) Pete Green, Bryan Sodel, Ray Brown, Nathan Madigan, Marshall Gill, Mike Brown and Steve Sodel.

Sterling Estates of West Cobb

Situated on 30 acres in a classic neighborhood setting with walking paths, large resident garden, beautifully landscaped courtyards and parks, Sterling Estates of West Cobb – which opened in 2016 – offers independent living cottages, garden homes and apartments. Additionally, its main building The Landmark provides apartment living and is licensed to provide assisted living services to residents residing there. The Landmark has a variety of dining options and a state-of-the-art $1,000,000+ Sterling Way Wellness Center with an indoor heated, saltwater, aerobic pool.

The West Cobb property recently broke ground to expand and include a new (The Hampton)independent living residence with additional one- and two-bedroom apartments, a large clubhouse (The Club), with indoor and outdoor seating, and a bar for socializing and “happy hours.” The Club will also include areas for art, sculpturing and woodworking, as well as a technology/media center.

In addition to the new independent living apartments, a state-of-the-art memory care residence (The Grande) is under construction at West Cobb. The single story building with 36 resident suites will feature three strategically placed “engagement centers” as well as a secure central interior therapeutic garden and courtyard. Partner Mike Brown added, “We are determined to deliver Marietta and greater Atlanta a cutting-edge, evidence-based memory care center, and we will do so.”

Sterling Estates of East Cobb

Much like its sister community, Sterling Estates of East Cobb is situated on 10 acres on Lower Roswell Road just off of Johnson Ferry Road. Located across from Indian Hills Country Club, it too has plenty of green space, gardens and outdoor amenities.

Like West Cobb, the East Cobb community offers residents the choice of living in cottage homes or in its Landmark residence where they can live independently in apartments, and if needed receive assistance with daily living. The same common area amenities and features of West Cobb are included in the East Cobb property, including a 5,000 sq. ft. Sterling Way Wellness Center featuring an indoor heated, saltwater, aerobic pool and large multi-dimensional exercise area. Well-known locally for its excellent dining experiences and delicious meals, Sterling Estates of East Cobb is the recent two-time winner of the “Taste Of East Cobb” competition.

Each of these communities offers exceptional living accommodations, a myriad of opportunities for continued good health, happiness and a warm, friendly environment conducive to making new friends and enjoying family. The staff strives to uphold what it feels are life’s most important values: service, faith and dependability, as well as to inspire enduring hope in hearts of families who entrust loved ones to their care.
