Blink and you might miss it, but that’s just one of the things Whitewater Creek’s 400 residents love about their intimate, riverfront neighborhood. The community is located so far to the west that it feels like it’s in the suburbs, but in reality, it’s just minutes away from Buckhead and Midtown’s most popular attractions.
Things to Do
One thing that is unique to Whitewater Creek is its proximity to the Chattahoochee River. The Chattahoochee National Recreation Area even has an entrance inside the neighborhood, making it an ideal place for fishing and hiking along the trails that run through the area. The community is also just a minute or two away from suburban hotspots, Vinings and the Cumberland Mall area. Here, you will find hundreds of restaurants and retails stores. Some popular dining spots in the area include Ray’s on the River, Heirloom Market BBQ, and the Flying Biscuit. The new Atlanta Braves stadium, which is expected to be finished in 2017, will also be just minutes away from Whitewater Creek.
Nestled amongst the dense forests and pristine landscaping are some of the most beautiful estate homes in Atlanta. Whitewater Creek falls into the 30327 zip code which is considered to be one of the wealthiest zip codes in the United States. Most homes in the neighborhood were built during the 1950s and 1960s, though a few from the 1990s can be found here. The residences range anywhere from $550,000 to over $3 million. The lots tend to be larger here than in most other Atlanta neighborhoods, and many of them sit on long driveways behind thick trees and shrubs. A few even sit on the Chattahoochee River.
Families residing in Whitewater Creek have the opportunity to send their children to some of Atlanta’s top public and private schools. Warren T. Jackson Elementary School is a National Blue Ribbon School, while Sutton Middle School offers a fine International Baccalaureate World School program, and North Atlanta High School is consistently chosen as one of the top high schools in the nation by Newsweek. Four prestigious private schools are located just a few minutes south of the neighborhood: Westminster Schools, Pace Academy, The Lovett School, and The Heiskell School.
Life in Whitewater Creek
Even though Interstate 75 borders Whitewater Creek, it remains a quiet, private neighborhood. Residents love that they can walk to the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, while every other person in Atlanta must drive miles to get to the popular outdoor spot. There is no shortage of shopping or dining to the neighborhood’s eastern and western borders, and the proximity to Atlanta’s most sought-after schools is unlike anywhere else in the city. No matter what you are looking for in a home, Whitewater Creek is the perfect choice.
