Without a doubt, Peachtree Hill is one of Buckhead’s most unique neighborhoods. Atlanta’s famous Peachtree Street, Lindbergh Drive, and Peachtree Creek help form the borders of the community that is packed with eclectic charm, cozy homes, and vibrant landscaping. Several independent businesses and restaurants sit inside the neighborhood’s borders, as does the Peachtree Battle Shopping Center. For even more shopping and dining, drive a couple of miles north, and you’re in the heart of Buckhead. For cultural events like plays, museums, and concerts, head a few miles south, and you’re in the heart of Midtown.
Things to Do
Peachtree Hills is largely residential, but a few tasty restaurants are located in the neighborhood, such as the favorite local hangout, Treehouse Restaurant and Pub; Paul’s; and Pasta Vino. For shopping that is as unique as Peachtree Hills, head across Peachtree to the Bennett Street Design District, where you will find some of Atlanta’s most famous antique shops and art galleries. Buckhead’s popular retail and entertainment district is about three miles north of the neighborhood. It is home to upscale malls, a booming nightlife, and some of the finest dining in all of Atlanta. The Peachtree Road Farmers’ Market is about a mile from Peachtree Hills and is one of Atlanta’s premiere places to buy fresh local produce. It is held every week from April through September. The neighborhood also has its own park which features a community garden, playgrounds, walking paths, ball fields, tennis courts, and a quiet picnic spot.
The real appeal of Peachtree Hills is its unique real estate. The neighborhood’s streets are lined with diverse bungalows and cottages that come in an array of styles and colors. Most of them feature cozy gardens and landscaping that residents take great pride in maintaining. In 2013, the average home sold for just under $500,000.
Families who live in Peachtree Hills will send their kids to E. Rivers Elementary School, Sutton Middle School, and North Atlanta High School which is home to the Southeast’s oldest International Baccalaureate World School program. Many private schools are located within a few miles of the neighborhood, as well. Christ the King School is only about a mile north of Peachtree Hills. Atlanta International School is also a quick drive away.
Life in Peachtree Hills
Life in Peachtree Hills is a bit more laid-back than many of Buckhead’s upscale neighborhoods, but that’s part of the appeal. Singles and families feel like it’s a place where they can let their unique personalities shine and really get to know the neighbors. The Peachtree Hills Civic Association makes it even easier for neighbors to become friends by hosting a spring barbecue, fall festival, and several other annual events.
