Enjoy small-town charm in Keystone’s Castleton

Marietta neighborhood has 2 move-in-ready homes, other home sites available

Fall is in full swing and thoughts soon will be turning to the holidays. If your wish list includes a brand-new home where you can entertain family and friends, then look no further than Castleton.
This Keystone Custom Homes’ Traditional Neighborhood Community in Marietta has the feel of a small town, complete with parks, walking trails and a clubhouse with a pool that homeowners can join for a small fee.
Castleton also fosters that neighborly feel with numerous community gatherings throughout the year, like the upcoming Family Fall Fest, from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, at the model home, 619 Shadetree Blvd. The event will include a costume contest, pumpkin painting and a potluck lunch.
Becoming part of the Castleton community has never been easier, thanks to two Ready Now Designer Homes that can have you moved in just in time to host the next holiday gathering.
The first is the model home, a manor-style home with the Wyndham Traditional elevation.
