What We Love
West Paces Ferry – Northside is in the middle of everything! Wherever you are headed… you are likely to drive through the neighborhood, so why not live here?
What We Don’t
Being in the middle of everything is great, but it means that traffic can be a real nuisance. Drivers pass through the neighborhood’s main roads, West Paces Ferry Road and Northside Parkway, to get anywhere and everywhere.
Several 100-acre European estates that dominated the landscape in the early 1900s have been carved up into a pleasant mix representing distinct time periods.
Directly south of West Paces Ferry Road and north of Northside Parkway and bordering I-75, West Paces Ferry – Northside is in prime Buckhead territory.
Around The Block
Tommy’s Barber shop has been a neighborhood fixture for gossip, politics, and the occasional haircut (haha) over the last 50 years.

The original tenants at West Paces Shopping Center, who have served at this location since its opening in the ’50s, are Tommy’s Barbershop and Wender & Roberts Drugstore. You can find almost anything at Wender & Roberts, and Tommy is a Buckhead icon, having trimmed presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s hair, along with multiple Georgia governors, and many first-time haircuts, as well!
