peachtree heightsWhen Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles magazine wrote, “Stately homes and grounds make Buckhead the Beverly Hills of Atlanta,” the editors surely had Peachtree Heights in mind.

Magnificent residences in sprawling, lush grounds showcase the work of some of Buckhead’s greatest architects, including Neel Reid, Philip Shutze and Buck Crook.

The area includes the Atlanta History Center’s elegant “Swan House” by Shutze and more than 20 acres of grounds that are open to the public.

About 400 homes on large lots make up Peachtree Heights (sometimes called Peachtree Heights West). Styles tend to classical and traditional, with more recent in-fill construction on subdivided lots.

The neighborhood was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

Schools include E. Rivers Elementary, Sutton Middle School and North Atlanta High School, some of Atlanta’s best. Sibley Park at Habersham Way and West Wesley Road is a densely wooded conservation park.
