Peachtree Heights East

At A Glance

Since its development began in the early 1900s, Peachtree Heights East has maintained a perfectly charming atmosphere that harkens back to its founding days. Duck Pond Park in the center of Peachtree Heights East is the neighborhood’s own storybook setting admired by all who visit. This tiny paradise in the city has been lovingly preserved, protected, and cultivated by the proud residents.

This active neighborhood supports several groups to enhance the community: the Peachtree Heights East Neighborhood Association operates a security patrol and offers member-discounts for Park (Duck Pond) rentals, while the Ladies of the Lake (LOL) Garden Club welcomes new residents and runs neighborhood social events. Their annual fundraiser, held the first Sunday in May, is a much-looked-forward-to event for the whole Buckhead community.

Three elementary schools are within walking distance for most neighbors. Christ the King School, a private Catholic school run by the Archdiocese of Atlanta is K-8 ( Garden Hills Elementary School (K-6) is part of the Atlanta Public School System and the private Atlanta International School (K-12) next door offers bi-lingual learning in French, German, Chinese and Spanish.

What We Love

Ask anyone from Peachtree Heights East about their neighborhood, and you’ll likely hear fond memories of the serene Duck Pond.

What We Don’t

Generally narrow lots provide less yard and parking options than you find in other Buckhead neighborhoods for the price.

Real Estate

Home styles are indicative of the 1910-1930 era, with charming restored cottages. The neighborhood has close to 340 homes, including condominium towers on Peachtree Road. Home prices start around $600,000.


Peachtree Heights East consists of a neat and tidy rectangle set between Peachtree Road (west) and Acorn Avenue (east) and East Wesley Road on the North and Lindbergh Drive on the South. The Peachtree/East Wesley corner is anchored by the 77-year-old Cathedral of Christ the King, architecturally notable for its French Gothic design.
