From its designer shopping opportunities to its sought-after nightlife, Buckhead, Atlanta’s uptown district, has earned the distinct reputation of being known as the “Beverly Hills of the South.” It is home to some of the city’s most exclusive neighborhoods, such as Collier Hills, Brookwood Hills, Tuxedo Park, and Chastain Park, as well as some of the most upscale condos in Atlanta, such as Park Place and St. Regis Residences.

Shopping, Dining, and Entertainment

Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza are two of Buckhead residents’ favorite places. Between the two malls, you will find over 350 stores, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany’s, and Kate Spade. Trendy restaurants and nightclubs are also plentiful in the area. Some local favorites are Chops Lobster Bar, Tongue & Groove, and Atlanta Fish Market. Many of Atlanta’s seasonal activities take place in Buckhead, too, such as the Fourth of July celebration at Lenox Square, the Buckhead Spring Arts and Crafts Festival, and the historic Lighting of Macy’s Great Tree at Christmastime. The Georgia Governor’s Mansion is also located here.

Homes

When it comes to affluent living, Buckhead is considered to be one of the top neighborhoods in the country by many publications. A typical home in the area costs between $400,000 and $1.3 million, though you will easily find beautiful estates on immaculately-landscaped lots and luxury condos along historic Peachtree that cost much more.

Family-Friendly

If you are looking for top-notch education, from the preschool level through college, Buckhead features some of the most prestigious private and public schools in the United States. Five elementary schools serve the area, including Sarah Smith Elementary which is a Georgia School of Excellence and a National Blue Ribbon School. Public middle and high school students will attend Sutton Middle School and North Atlanta High School. Most of the schools in the district are also International Baccalaureate World Schools. Atlanta’s most exclusive private schools sit within Buckhead’s parameters, including The Westminster Schools, The Lovett School, Galloway School, and Pace Academy. Some of Georgia’s top colleges have satellite campuses in Buckhead. Chastain Park, Atlanta’s largest green space, is another family-friendly attraction, in part, because of the sports programs it offers as part of the Northside Youth Organization.

From modern apartments ideal for the single professional who commutes to Downtown to historic houses with large, wooded lots perfect for growing families seeking a home amongst many of the best schools in the country, Buckhead offers some of the finest living in the United States.
