Amenities Information     

Caretakers Cottage & Fitness Center

Welcoming our residents is the 2,500 sf. Caretaker's Cottage.  Designed to represent building at the entryways of common estates in England in the 18th Century; it signifies arrival, privacy, and security.  It architecturally represents a relationship to the main structure of an estate.  Also in the second floor is a fitness center which is open 24/7 and is available to all residents .  It includes treadmills, ellipticals, a recumbent bike, weights, and a home gym.  


The Conservatory (Clubhouse)

The gathering place for neighborhood activities; the Georgian style clubhouse is located on a four-acre preserve near the Chattahoochee River.  The Conservatory is home to Conservatory park, pool, tennis courts, and a children's playground.  


The Pool

Located behind the Conservatory, Ellard's pool is reminiscent of the turn of the century swim facility complete with a large gazebo for escaping the sun or the perfect place to spot deer roaming the river along the Chattahoochee.  A stone grotto provides showers and changing rooms, as well as a covered refuge perfect for poolside parties.  Tables with umbrellas, chaise lounges, and a gas grill provide all the basics for fun in the sun.  


Tennis Facilities

Two regulation sized, hard surface courts provide the perfect spot for children's lessons or the fiercest mixed doubles match.  Benches and a gazebo provide spectator seating, while the nearby playground keeps  kids happy while mom and dad practice their ground strokes.  The courts are enclosed with wind barriers and lighting provides the ability to play into the evening.  Local instructors frequent the courts to provide lessons for players of all skills and ages.  The pool and shower area are just steps away.  


Conservatory Park (in honor of Lawrence & Leila Ellard Garrard)

Site of the annual Ellard Eater Egg Hunt, Conservatory Park sits at the heart of the Ellard Community.  Shaded benches under maple trees provide a perfect spot to watch neighborhood life go by, or to cheer on the occasional football or soccer game that may break out.  The park also hosts many outdoor activities that accompany Conservatory events. 


Twelve Acre Park

Just south of Pristine Place sits the entrance to the Ellard twelve acre river park.  Deer still inhabit the area and you can still imagine how the area once looked long ago when Addison Holcomb operated his river ferry just upstream from this site,  The site also was the scene of Indian, and later Civil War battles.  If you are lucky, you just might find a musket ball or arrowhead.  Walking trails provide easy access to the river and picnic tables are located along the river.
