About Serenbe
Serenbe is pioneering a new community model connected to nature on the edge of Atlanta. It is a neighborhood with fresh food and fresh air that makes wellbeing as natural as nature itself. A purposeful community where people live, work, learn and play in celebration of life’s beauty. Where connections between people, nature and the arts are nourished. Two innovative teams of designer architects, Ryan Gainey and Mark Mosley, and Robert Pulliam and Eddy Rhinehart, designed The Swann Ridge neighborhood that will have 28 masonry cottages along with town homes, apartments and boutique retail. #SerenbeShowhouse
