Braving brisk winds and falling temperatures, residents of Heatherton in Roswell raised their cups of hot chocolate in a toast to winter at exactly 12:37 p.m. on December 21, 2008. That was the exact moment of high noon of the Winter Solstice and the time when the longest shadow of the year hit the Solstice Stone in Heatherton’s formal maze — which also happens to be a place to go for a walk, a gathering place for residents, an ancient-style GPS, and a sun dial.
Harold Cunliffe, who works with Heatherton developer The Pacific Group, created the large astronomical instrument. He was on hand to enjoy the moment with residents and explain the maze’s design.
Residents agree that the Heatherton maze isn’t the only thing that makes the community remarkable. The design, quality and service provided by Monte Hewett Homes make it a stand-out, too. And no other North Fulton communities enjoy direct access to GA 400, which saves residents time and frustration with every commute. With the introduction of a new group of townhomes priced from the low $300,000s, residents are eager to invite more new neighbors to join the fun.
