Ivy Springs is situated near the Gwinnett County line, close to Dacula and an easy drive to Athens. It is minutes from GA-316 and is convenient to Hwy 78, but still removed from much of the traffic and noise in busier parts of Gwinnett. There are great restaurants, shopping centers, parks and schools all within easy reach of this great community. Opportunities here are extremely limited, so it's one you don't want to miss.
