Sandy Springs became Georgia’s ninth largest city in 2005, which meant a transition from being one of Atlanta’s most affluent neighborhoods to becoming one of its most attractive suburbs. The city is unique in that it is located both inside and outside the perimeter that I-285 forms around Atlanta.  Depending on which side of the perimeter you choose, beautiful green space, amazing commercial opportunities, and excellent charter schools are some of the amenities Sandy Springs has to offer.


Outside of the perimeter or OTP, there are many things to do in Sandy Springs. Parks like the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area are plentiful, and shopping centers like The Prado or CityWalk offer a wide range of places to shop, eat, or grab a cup of coffee. Sandy Springs is home to one of the nation’s best facilities when it comes to tennis, and many residents enjoy getting involved in community events like the Sandy Springs Festival.


Most of Sandy Springs is located outside of the perimeter and offers both city and suburban-style living. Home prices vary throughout the area and can range anywhere from $150,000 for a single-family ranch-style home to $10 million for a historic estate. Some popular neighborhoods are Aberdeen Forest, The Branches, The Enclave at Jett Ferry, Mt. Vernon Walk, and Londonberry. Condos and townhomes are also scattered throughout Sandy Springs.


Children in Sandy Springs have the unique opportunity to attend some of Fulton County’s exciting charter schools, such as Dunwoody Springs Charter Elementary, Woodland Charter Elementary, and Ridgeview Charter Middle School. Students may also attend Riverwood International Charter School which, according to Newsweek is the second-best high school in Georgia and one of the top 150 in the United States. Several of Atlanta’s prestigious private schools are also a quick commute away.

Why Sandy Springs?

Sandy Springs has been called one of the best places for families to live in the country by several publications, but it is also a great place to work. Companies like IBM and Cisco have headquarters there, and three of Atlanta’s largest hospitals are located there, as well.
