Tuxedo Park

At A Glance

Tuxedo Park is the undisputed top-shelf neighborhood in Buckhead. The rich history of this area goes deeper than many residents may realize. This early Atlanta suburb was only woods and farmland at the beginning of the 20th century, but that quickly changed. Wealthy Atlantans began building homes along Paces Ferry around 1904, many used as summer or country estates with farm animals and extensive gardens. Tuxedo Park expanded North several blocks from there and has kept its refined Southern elegance ever since.

The Tuxedo Park Civic Association holds social events, hires private security officers, and generally keeps the neighborhood connected despite the mostly gated and secluded estates. With its historic mansions and picturesque landscaping, Tuxedo Park is aptly named for this sophisticated neighborhood of magnificent residences. Some of the finest estates in Buckhead are located in the prestigious Tuxedo Park neighborhood.

Although the city of Atlanta has grown to surround this once-remote area, the neighborhood still maintains an aura of seclusion and escape. The manicured grounds and varied architecture of the homes give the neighborhood a formal air befitting its name.

What We Love

It’s simply beautiful. Some of the finest estates in Buckhead are located in this flawless neighborhood.

What We Don’t

If you’re looking for a social neighborhood, the long, gated driveways may not be right for you. This is not a “borrow a cup of sugar” neighborhood.

Real Estate

Homes are the most expensive of any in Atlanta. Empty lots have sold for as much $5 million and homes pass the $10 million mark on occasion. Contact Ben Hirsh for more information about Buckhead real estate.
