Villa Rica GA, the Village of Gold, takes its name from Georgia’s first Gold Rush in the late 1820’s. Villa Rica is a beautiful rural town 10 minutes west of Douglasville GA. Villa Rica real estate offers a slower pace and a laid-back atmosphere that many Atlanta commuters cherish after a long day in the big city. Villa Rica has seen an increase in activity lately with many moving westward to take advantage of home prices which compare very favorably with that of locations closer to Atlanta. Lack of commercial development so far hints that Villa Rica real estate will remain a desirable area for families and those seeking an out of the way address.
Some areas of Villa Rica GA real estate are located above the Dog River Basin and as such are required to have a property lot size of no less than three acres per home to maintain the purity of this pristine water source. This has developed a pocket of country estate homes which is truly charming and offers a variety of Villa Rica homes for sale. Villa Rica real estate also boasts some of the best golf communities in the Atlanta area such as The Georgian, Fairfield Plantation, and Mirror Lake.
