Driving down Peachtree Road through the heart of Buckhead, you might feel as though you’re on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. Only instead of a SoCal palm tree, it’s a magnolia tree amongst Atlanta’s signature landscaping you see. We’re talking finely trimmed foliage and colorful flowers abundantly dotting the concrete path past Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza, the Ritz Carlton and many a glimmering hi-rise office and residential buildings along the way. This is Buckhead, an expansive, beautiful sub city of Atlanta, located just north of Midtown. Not to mention, a great place to visit, work, play and live. Buckhead is home to 55 neighborhoods which include rolling estates, wooded lands and the city’s tallest residential high rises. As a Buckhead dweller, you could live in a charming pre-war 2 bedroom Craftsman bungalow from the mid 400’s or a brand new impeccably landscaped $2 million luxury mansion. And with nearly 1/5 of Buckhead being “elevator-served,”you just might find yourself, like Elton John, overlooking Peachtree Street from the 20th floor of your 2000 square foot penthouse.
During the day, an estimated 135,000 people come here to shop and eat. Known as Georgia’s “dining room, there are more than 100 restaurants and bars within 2 blocks of the intersection of Peachtree and East Paces Ferry. Shopping simply cannot be surpassed by anywhere in Atlanta let alone the Southeast, mind you, with everything from Neiman Marcus, Saks and Nordstrom’s to Tiffany’s, Target and J. Crew.
Demographics Daily ranked Atlanta as No. 1 among U.S. metro areas as the best place for women and minorities to work. While young and ambitious careerists choose to climb the corporate ladder at ad agencies and brokerage firms here, many families choose Buckhead solely for its excellent educational opportunities. If not attending Atlanta Public Schools, their K-12 children go to Pace Academy, the Lovett School andWestminster Schools just to name a few. Just across the street from another popular private school campus, The Galloway School is Atlanta’s largest park, Chastain. With 260 acres, Chastain serves as a regional park for a broad area beyond Buckhead. The property includes the Northside Youth Organization’s fields, a tennis center, arts center, the North Fulton Golf Course, a horse park, plus the PATH walking trail through natural areas and playgrounds. The Chastain Park Amphitheater is one of the most popular outdoor concert venues in the U.S. An Atlanta tradition, it’s where concert goers bring their own picnic baskets to dine in the candle light and under the stars, listening to their favorite artists and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
