North Buckhead

At A Glance

As Atlanta’s 4th most populous neighborhood, about 9,000 residents call North Buckhead home. North Buckhead has focused on creating more walkable streets, mixed used development, and redevelopment of older areas, while protecting its lush, forested core. The completion of the I-85 to I-285 extension of Georgia 400 in the 1990s spurred a new wave of development. From “Walk to School” days to the Annual Holiday Christmas Tree sale, the Civic Association keeps neighbors socially active with creative ways to enjoy their beautiful neighborhood. North Buckhead’s seasonal Block Parties, or “flings,” are widely popular with the whole family with up to 600 neighbors and friends in attendance! Phipps Plaza boasts some of the most elite shopping destinations in Georgia. High fashion at it’s finest resides within these walls, as you can find any designer or brand to compliment your desires.

The Blue Heron Nature Preserve is enjoyed by all neighbors, with exploration camps, wildlife sightings (mostly deer, owls, foxes, turtles, and turkeys), and volunteer cleanups. As is little Nancy Creek Park, a beloved community outdoor exploration with trails, playground, portico, community-tended garden, and beautiful greenspace.

What We Love

Lush, forested and peaceful residential areas complimented by bustling nearby shopping and restaurant destinations.

What We Don’t

As GA 400 runs through the heart of the neighborhood and shopping districts are moments away, traffic congestion is consistent, especially during the holidays.

Real Estate

Single-family home prices start around $600,000, and condos start around $375,000. Home styles range from quaint bungalows to large stately mansions.


One of Atlanta’s largest neighborhoods, North Buckhead is dissected by Georgia 400. Bounded by Sandy Springs (ITP) Neighborhood to the north, Peachtree Road to the south, Peachtree Dunwoody Road to the east, and Roswell and Piedmont Roads to the west.
