Private. Tucked away. Secluded. Pedestrian friendly. Lush. These adjectives, ones you would think reserved for rural communities, apply perfectly to the “island within the city” that is Peachtree Park.
Comprised of only 13 streets and approximately 550 homes, Peachtree Park retains a quaint atmosphere despite being located in the heart of Buckhead. Many residents are able to walk to the business district, and as East Paces Ferry Road ends, pedestrians can use a beautiful footbridge to crossover 400 to some of the city’s best shopping and dining establishments. In fact, Peachtree Park is extremely friendly to walkers, bikers and joggers with its wider streets, slower pace and sidewalks.
Peachtree Park real estate is diverse, and as the area developed over three distinctive periods of time, sections of the community adopted their own character and style. The older portions of the neighborhood, built in the 1920s, are dominated by English cottage-style homes, colonial revival architecture and Craftsmans. This area is noted by the National Register of Historic Places as a living museum, a place where people can see and appreciate some of the best architectural styles of the early 20th century.
You’ll also find grandly renovated bungalows and cottages, and in this coveted community, many residents opt to renovate and expand as their needs grow, as opposed to relocating. This is one reason the residents are so tightly-knit, involved and volunteer to keep their community as well maintained and safe as it is.
Family residents appreciate the good school systems that surround Peachtree Park, both public and private, as well as the many parks nearby including Frankie Allen, Garden Hills, and Chastain, where sports fields, trails, a community pool and a recreation center are favorite amenities.
