Pass through Chastain, and it’s hard to believe you’re in the heart of a bustling urban hub like Atlanta. Aptly named because its homes sit nestled among the nearly 300 acres of beautiful Chastain Park, this area is sought after by some if the city’s most discerning homeowners.
First developed in the early 1900s, Chastain paints a picture of the progression of architecture as you traverse its streets. Some are defined by low slung ranches that have been elegantly updated to meet the needs of the modern homeowner, while other areas are distinguished by new, grand construction or popular Craftsman style homes. Regardless of style, homes in this area retain and increase in value consistently.
Chastain Park is by far the biggest attraction in the area. Residents and visitors alike can take advantage of this far reaching park and its amenities, which include a popular amphitheatre that’s host to big names in the music industry; a horse park; paths, trails and areas for jogging, biking and walking; sports fields; a swimming pool; as well as an arts center. Some high-end restaurants dot the area, and it’s also home to an award winning, reputable elementary school, Warren T. Jackson Elementary, for families considering Chastain’s educational offerings.
While Chastain feels spacious, green and far removed from urban living, it’s only a few minutes drive to bustling Buckhead where what this area lacks in dining, shopping and nightlife is easily found.
