Druid Hill real estate is reminiscent of a New England Ivy League neighborhood with all the friendliness and Southern hospitality of a true Atlanta borough. One of the quietest and most affluent areas in all of Atlanta, no other place can beat Druid Hills as far as comfortable, safe family living.
The centerpiece of Druid Hills has to be the prestigious, private Emory University, one of the most well respected institutes of higher education in the country. Druid Hills is also home to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), making it the intellectual research center of the city. Maybe that’s what gives Druid Hills it’s high class feel.
Of all Atlanta homes, Druid Hills real estate listings are most highly sought for the beauty of both the houses and the yards, as well as for their quiet safety, great schools and close community feel. A step into the wooded hollow of Druid Hills immediately lowers the volume of the adjacent big urban areas as endless green unfolds around you. Oak shaded yards stretch out for acres before reaching palatial Tudor Revival homes. The greenery doesn’t stop at the property lines either, as miles of park space give residents an outlet for picnicking and little league baseball.
Financial centers in Druid Hills have a true college town feel. Emory Village is a quaint historic district near the namesake university. A revitalization of the area was completed in 2011, including street improvements making for easier access from any home in Druid Hills. Apart from that, there are a number of great areas for dining and play, and loveable Downtown Decatur is always minutes away.
In fact, one of the best features of Druid Hills real estate listings is everything surrounding them, including the beautiful Candler Park, relentlessly hip Little Five Points and of course the main business districts of Atlanta, Downtown and Midtown, are right next door. For some of the largest, most beautiful homes in Atlanta in a safe community, it’s hard to beat Druid Hills.
