Midtown / South Atlanta
The capital of Georgia with a wealth of opportunity for jobs, attractions, social life and downtown living. Atlanta is home to two of the states largest universities, Georgia Institute of Technology and Georgia State University, and many Georgias professional sports stadiums, Mercedes Benz Stadium and State Farm Area. The neighborhoods of Ansley Park, Brookhaven, Buckhead and Midtown make up the Atlanta area and offer state-of-the-art private schools, beautiful golf courses and a booming business district.
Morningside and Ansley Park are historic midtown Atlanta neighborhoods that share a reputation for elegance, lush landscapes, beautiful parks, a 9-hole golf course known as one of the best in the state and the Atlanta Botanical Garden. With fine homes and an upscale lifestyle, these are neighborhoods that attract the "movers and shakers" of Atlanta business and culture.
Brookhaven, a northeastern suburban neighborhood of Atlanta, was one of the first planned golf course developments in the United States. It is on the list of National Historic Places and is a popular residential area with a mix of housing that includes smallish bungalows as well as larger single family homes, interesting townhomes, condominiums and modern lofts. Peachtree-Dunwoody Road separates Brookhaven from North Buckhead to the east and together they represent some of the most affluent areas of the entire city.
Located north of Midtown Atlanta, Buckhead is a district that covers most of Atlantas northside neighborhoods. This sprawling community makes up about a fifth of Atlantas land area and has a population of over 78,000. Buckhead is one of the major commercial and financial centers in the Southeast. The district is also one of the most affluent in the country. While single-family homes dominate much of the real estate landscape in Buckhead, the Peachtree Road area is known for high-rise condo and commercial buildings. Although Buckhead is located in Fulton County, Buckhead public schools are part of the Atlanta Public Schools system. Buckhead is home to a number of top private schools in Atlanta, including Atlanta International School, Pace Academy, Lovett School, and The Westminster Schools.
Midtown is on the move. Always a popular neighborhood, Midtown and Piedmont Park are currently enjoying renewed vigor, destined to help this Number 4 neighborhood retain its ranking on the Best Places to Live in Atlanta list. Midtown is one of the largest of Atlanta's 242 neighborhoods, and is also the second-largest business district, nestled between Downtown and Buckhead up north.
