real estate

Buckhead is everything you thought it would be and then some. It’s classy, chic, posh, ritzy, lavish and any other adjective you can think of along the same vein. And yet Buckhead manages to match every bit of extravagance with equal amounts of elegance; overindulgence with graceful opulence. In a way, Buckhead is like its own unofficial city (Buckhead district itself is made up of 42 neighborhoods) in that it has a mix of everything you could ever need—major offices, fashionable upscale shopping, award-winning and trend-setting culinary experiences, glamorous entertainment scenes, world-class hotel accommodation, luxury living and everything else in between. In Buckhead you’ll often find yourself dining, drinking and dancing with Atlanta’s elite as the backdrop of urban landmarks surround you. Buckhead is to Atlanta what Beverly Hills is to Los Angeles: it’s a road paved for Atlanta’s affluent, where the young and the old both come to live, work and play in the most sophisticated way.

Welcome to buckhead atlanta

Buckhead is Atlanta’s other downtown, yet despite this, it’s still considered one of the most significant business and commercial centers in the Southeast. The district has one of the country’s largest concentration of urban mixed-use developments, thanks to the apartment and condo boom of the past few years. With the highest real estate prices in Metro Atlanta, luxury living in Buckhead is reserved for those who have a high net worth. Those who do have the money to spend can choose from the many condos or hotel residences that are densely packed along major commercial arteries like Peachtree Road or from the stately mansions that lie in some of the quieter, more residential areas like North Buckhead.
