Buckhead Forest is a premiere neighborhood in the heart of Buckhead. Centrally located between Roswell Road and Peachtree Road with easy access to GA400. Only minutes away from the wonderful shops and restaurants of Lenox Mall and Phipp’s Plaza as well as downtown Atlanta. Homes in the Peachtree Park neighborhood range in price from $300,000 to well over $1,000,000.
According to Buckhead.net:
Buckhead Forest, once known as Buckhead Triangle, is a feisty enclave of 103 homes in the very heart of Buckhead. The area, in the V formed when Roswell Road and Peachtree Road split, is surrounded by some of Buckhead’s priciest commercial real estate. But you’d never know that once you enter Buckhead Forest’s tree-shaded streets.
The neighborhood, developed in the 1920s and 1930s as the Shadowlawn subdivision, is an eclectic collection of cottages on deep, narrow, heavily wooded lots. Some houses have 2-story garage apartments in the rear. Styles range from Tudor to traditional, with some brick ranches built in the 1950s and 1960s and European stuccos in the 1990s. Evidence of renovation is everywhere, in both homes and gardens.
The neighborhood is a short walk from everything in the center of Buckhead and accessible by MARTA bus and rail transit stations.
Years of fending off commercial encroachment have developed neighborhood spirit that larger neighborhoods might envy. One newspaper report compared Buckhead Forest to "The Little Engine That Could."
It’s a tucked away, still-affordable gem.
Entertainment, from multiscreen movie complexes at Phipps Plaza, Tower Place and Lenox Square to the Atlanta History Center on West Paces Ferry Road, is easily accessible. By MARTA rail or by car, it's easy to reach Symphony Hall, the High Museum of Art, the Atlanta Ballet, the Fox Theatre and sports events of every description.
Buckhead parks are equally accessible: Garden Hills, just across Piedmont Road; Frankie Allen on Pharr Road; Peachtree Hills behind the Lindbergh MARTA station; and Chastain Park on Powers Ferry Road. Piedmont Park, a longtime Atlanta favorite, is 10 minutes away by car or 20 minutes by train/bus.
Public schools (see Buckhead Education.) include Sarah Smith Elementary, Sutton Middle School and North Atlanta High.
Buckhead Forest is truly the little engine that could.
