Kirkwood Atlanta Homes For Sale and Kirkwood Real Estate
Kirkwood is a national historic designated neighborhood on the east side of Atlanta (east of Midtown) The neighborhood is a historic streetcar suburb, and was designed by architect Will Saunders. Kirkwood is situated entirely in DeKalb County, and is surrounded by the neighborhoods of Lake Claire, East Lake, Edgewood, and Oakhurst. Kirkwood’s boundary is described as bounded on the north by DeKalb Avenue, on the south by Memorial Drive and Interstate 20, on the west by Montgomery Street, and on the east by 1st Ave.
While Kirkwood's residential community began to flourish by the late 1990s, the community's business district running along Hosea L. Williams Dr. (Then Boulevard Dr.) remained stagnant. Today, Downtown Kirkwood has become what neighbors call "the small town in the big city," including its own post office, newly constructed fire station, police precinct and public library. Residents and visitors also have a host of shopping and dining options at their disposal, including: day spas, furniture galleries, gift shops, restaurants, bars, coffee shops, real estate offices, professional/creative spaces and more.
You can search Kirkwood Atlanta Homes For Sale and get a taste of the variety of homes available in this area. The transitional nature might mean you have a home that has been completely restored next to one that “needs some work.” But it’s a convenient location to people working in Midtown and Downtown Atlanta.
