Brookwood Hills is one of Atlanta’s oldest upscale neighborhoods. It sits just across from Piedmont Hospital, between Peachtree Street and Interstate 85. This is the area where Atlanta’s uptown Buckhead district meets Midtown, so residents can enjoy everything both communities have to offer without having to go too far from home. The neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and rightfully so. Once you turn off Peachtree into the neighborhood, you will find some Atlanta’s most charming historic homes.
Things to Do
Just outside of Brookwood Hills is a busy commercial district which means residents can walk to shops, offices, and restaurants. Some of the more popular restaurants situated along Peachtree just beyond the neighborhood include Watershed, R. Thomas Deluxe Grill, and Ted’s Montana Grill. Head south on Peachtree, and you will encounter some of Atlanta’s finest cultural attractions, like the Fox Theatre, High Museum of Art, and the Alliance Theatre. Go a few minutes north of Brookwood Hills to discover the galleries and shops of the Bennett Street Design District or Atlanta’s biggest public tennis facility, the Bitsy Grant Tennis Center. There is no shortage of golf in the area. The Ansley Golf Club, Bobby Jones Golf Course, and Piedmont Driving Club are all nearby.
In 2013, the average Brookwood Hills sold for about $400,000. Residences here are a mixture of several classic styles, ranging from mid-size Craftsman bungalows to larger Tudor homes that sit on smaller, immaculately landscaped lots. Despite its proximity to Peachtree and the interstate, Brookwood Hills residents covet the quiet, private atmosphere. There is little traffic and plenty of sidewalks, so it’s the perfect place for an afternoon stroll or a bike ride with the family.
Children who live in Brookwood Hills attend E. Rivers Elementary School, Sutton Middle School, and North Atlanta High School. North Atlanta has received state and national recognition for its academic excellence. The Savannah College of Art and Design’s Atlanta campus is located less than a mile south of the neighborhood. Several prestigious private schools serve the area, including Atlanta International School, Christ the King School, The Heiskell School, and Pace Academy.
