Morningside, originally developed in the early 1930s, has overcome many challenges to become the sound, affluent and coveted community it is today. Its family residents prize the nearby school districts while others enjoy the multitude of parks, mature landscape and peaceful setting of the neighborhood. In fact, Morningside is the catchall name given to the intown area that includes several subdivisions – Morningside and Lenox Park, as well as University Park, Johnson Estates, Hylan Park and Noble Park.
As Atlanta grew, the Morningside area was threatened several times by potential interstate construction and encroaching urban development; however, residents banded together to further entrench themselves. In fact, Morningside today is involved in the city’s Neighborhood Planning Units; has invested itself in designating markers to establish themselves; and has an active and protected sense of community. The Morningside Lenox Park Civic Association is instrumental in keeping the residents connected and rooted.
Potential buyers are enamored by Morningside’s grand real estate. You can find impressive Tudors, elegantly updated homes from the early 1900s, as well as homes with bungalow and cottage styles. Other draws to this area are the impressive schools, excellent farmers market, plus its proximity to many of Atlanta’s most attractive sectors – Virginia Highland, Midtown, downtown Atlanta and Buckhead.
