At A Glance
Tuxedo Park is the undisputed top-shelf neighborhood in Buckhead. With 100 years of the finest architecture on full display, the estates here truly deserve their reputation.
The civic association holds social events, hires private security officers, and generally keeps the neighborhood connected despite the mostly gated and secluded estates. With historic mansions and picturesque landscaping, Tuxedo Park is aptly named for this sophisticated neighborhood of magnificent residences.
Although the city of Atlanta has grown to surround this once removed area,the neighborhood still maintains an aura of seclusion and escape, just as it did in the 1800s when it consisted of country estates. The manicured grounds and varied architecture of the homes give the neighborhood a somewhat formal air befitting its name.See Tuxedo Park Homes for Sale

What Neighbors Say: Attorney Alex W. Smith III recounted growing up in a Neel Reid-designed home on Tuxedo Road in his memoirs: “It was a very rural area then. I spent many a day tromping through those woods with my .22, shooting at squirrels and rabbits and birds…We had a Guernsey cow, ducks, a pig and a nanny goat.”
