In 2012, Brookhaven went from being a popular Atlanta neighborhood to becoming a city in its own right. Built around Atlanta’s exclusive historic Capital City Country Club, Brookhaven is currently home to about 49,000 people and takes up 12 square miles in Dekalb County. As the new city continues to grow, so does its array of new homes, new people, and new businesses. However, you will also find quite a bit of Atlanta history here that dates back to the early 20th century.

Shopping, Dining, and Entertainment

Brookhaven residents can take advantage of local hotspots or travel just a few minutes away to Buckhead to enjoy everything it has to offer. Fining dining is plentiful at eateries like Valenza and Terra Terroir Kitchen and Bar, or you can opt for some of your old familiar standby restaurants and shops at Town Brookhaven. It also features a movie theater. Buckhead’s infamous upscale shopping malls, Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza, are also just a few minutes away, and Brookhaven itself is home to numerous jewelry and clothing boutiques. The annual Brookhaven Arts Festival and Brookhaven Farmer’s Market are both a great way to have fun and get to know your neighbors.


Within its boundaries, Brookhaven offers a wide variety of homes, ranging from those built as far back as the 1910s to as recently as the 2010s. Single-family styles range from multi-million-dollar estates to mid-century ranches, with prices that are just as varied, falling anywhere between $200,000 and several million dollars. Several new apartments and townhomes are also available in the city.


Brookhaven’s public education is a part of the Dekalb County School System. Children living in the city will attend one of four elementary schools: Woodward, Ashford Park, Montgomery, or Montclair; Kittredge Middle Magnet School; and either Chamblee Charter High School or Cross Keys High School. Students also have the option of attending one of the many private schools located in the city, such as Marist School or Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic School.  Oglethorpe University, a small, private liberal arts college, known for its beautiful campus, sits within Brookhaven’s city limits.

Why Brookhaven? 

Brookhaven is the perfect place for people who want to live in the suburbs but be in the city at a moment’s notice, depending on their mood. Imagine spending a day visiting the Atlanta Botanical Gardens or the High Museum of Art and getting home within minutes to enjoy family movie night or to change for a night out in Buckhead. A city like Brookhaven truly offers the best of both worlds.
