Meet the JohnsonsMay 20, 2020
When Gwen and Doug Johnson make their future move to Kingsboro at Lenbrook, there will be a lot that’s new. New countertops, new flooring, new appliances, gorgeous new landscaping, and lush common areas. But, what won’t be all that new is the people around them. Says Gwen, “We’ve recently learned that one of Doug’s classmates from graduate school will be living above us, one of Doug’s golfing friends will live next door, and one of my very good friends from our neighborhood will be downstairs from us. Plus, we know other people who are currently living at Lenbrook.
While this proximity to current acquaintances is certainly a coincidence, it’s not surprising. Gwen and Doug are engaging, outgoing and active. They know many people because they are a fun-loving twosome. You’ll find them dining out in the funky, small cafes in Brookhaven or enjoying a gourmet meal at Buckhead’s Chops. He is a golfer and a self-described tech-geek. She is involved in a book club and plays bridge several times a week. They are active members of the nearby Capital City Club. Right now, they are embracing and enjoying life. Gwen and Doug are just the kind of enthusiastic people who are choosing Kingsboro at Lenbrook for their future.
The Johnsons have always lived a full and dynamic life. Early on, Doug’s career moved the family a number of times. They landed back in Atlanta in 1982 where they eventually built a home next to the Capital City Club golf course. Doug spent most of his years working at Ernst & Young, a large public accounting firm. After retiring in 2003, he served on several boards including Aflac Incorporated and Morehouse School of Medicine
Gwen and Doug have also traveled a lot. They make yearly excursions to Kiawah Island in South Carolina, and these days the trip includes the entire family including their two grandkids. As a couple, they’ve been all over the world from Europe to Asia and lately are enjoying river cruises, a trip down the Danube being one of their favorites. They have great memories of many trips, but they’re hardly done. “Now that I am off all the boards I was on, we’ll be traveling even more,” offers Doug.
The Johnsons chose Kingsboro at Lenbrook for many reasons: the security, the location, the access to medical care, and the quality of the campus. Doug describes Lenbrook’s new addition as possessing the caliber “of the St. Regis hotel.”
The Johnsons think Kingsboro at Lenbrook will be the ideal place to continue their vibrant, active lifestyle, and they know they’ll be surrounded by like-minded company. And friends.
