    Atlanta’s second suburb is also considered by many as its “perfect suburb.” Built around the vision of the father of American landscape architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted, this historic and affluent location boasts a deliberate emphasis on green spaces and natural terrain. Several suburbs elsewhere in Metro Atlanta owe their community planning on the lasting influence of Olmsted’s design for Druid Hills. Druid Hills is also home to Emory University, one of the premier private research universities in the Southeast.

  • Buckhead
    Few communities can compare with the uptown Buckhead district when it comes to upscale urban living. Known as the “Beverly Hills of Atlanta,” this former vacation destination has evolved into a thriving luxury community, complete with its impressive roster of lavish retail and dining options. Old meets new here, as elegant, sprawling historic estates abound just as much as modern high-rises.

  • Virginia-Highland
    Located in the East Side district of Atlanta, Virginia-Highland is a historic neighborhood that offers a variety of American architectural classics such as Craftsman bungalows, Colonial Revivals, and Foursquare homes. The locale is also known for its trendy “shopping village” style commercial nodes, iconic dining destinations, and memorable local events.

  • Sagamore Hills
    Located just 10 miles northeast of Downtown Atlanta and five miles north of Decatur, Sagamore Hills is an idyllic suburban escape that appeals to professionals and growing families that desire tranquil living surroundings. Homes here range from brick ranch-style houses to mini-mansions set on sprawling lots. New construction in recent years is adding to the housing stock in this coveted Metro Atlanta suburb.

  • Kirkwood
    Established in 1899, Kirkwood is a historic streetcar suburb located near the easternmost flank of Atlanta. Its downtown area is regarded as “the small town in the big city,” featuring the neighborhood’s own post office, police precinct, fire station, and public library. This locale also comes alive with several signature events that range from wine strolls to annual commemorations of historic events.

  • East Atlanta
    East Atlanta is the epitome of “cool.” It boasts a pleasant environment, various recreational destinations and cultural events, and most importantly, a wide range of housing options.
