Situated in the coveted Buckhead section of Atlanta between Peachtree and Piedmont Roads, the historic neighborhood of Garden Hills welcomes its residents with wooded streets, stately homes, plenty of green space and even a community pool and clubhouse. Combining convenience with serenity, this lush “urban forest” community is in the heart of what many consider to be the best part of Atlanta, making it one of the area’s most desired neighborhoods in which to live.
Originally planned as a country club neighborhood by Phillips Campbell McDuffie in 1925, the community of Garden Hills was completed in three phases over the next 10-15 years, with many of the original homes from that era still intact today. As Atlanta’s urban sprawl continued around the neighborhood throughout the 20th century, Garden Hills gradually became less suburban and more central, adding a few newer homes and apartments while retaining its own rural charm. Today, this neighborhood remains a haven of quietude, its historic architecture helping to preserve its relaxed southern charm in the midst of the hustle and bustle of the city.
Located within the Atlanta Public School district, school-aged students in Garden Hills are zoned to attend Garden Hills Elementary, Sutton Middle School and North Atlanta High School. Several highly rated private schools are also available nearby, including Atlanta International School and Christ the King School.
The centerpiece of Garden Hills is the community swimming pool and clubhouse where the community gathers regularly for fun and recreation; the original clubhouse burned down in 1999, but has since been rebuilt. Garden Hills is also convenient to plenty of great shops and restaurants, mostly clustered along Peachtree Road, Piedmont Road and Pharr Road along the edges of the neighborhood. Most of Atlanta’s most popular attractions, including the Atlanta Botanical Garden, High Museum of Art and Georgia Aquarium, are a short drive away.
