Located south of Buckhead and northeast of Downtown, Midtown real estate is an eclectic mix of picturesque urban architecture featuring everything from upscale high-rise condos to historic bungalows with architectural styles including everything from Classical to Post-Modern, Art Deco to Craftsman, and everything in between. A history buff and cultural connoisseur’s dream featuring world-class theaters, museums, and historically significant architecture, Midtown is the “Heart of the Arts”. The Fabulous Fox Theater, built in 1929, is a stunning example of architectural grandeur and serves as Midtown’s most elegant host for hundreds of performances each year including popular Broadway shows, summer film series, and renowned musicians. Midtown is also home to the southeast’s preeminent art museum, The High which recently underwent a multi-million dollar renovation and features some of the world’s most renowned fine artists. For outdoor enthusiasts, 189-acre Piedmont Park serves as a focal point of the community year-round and features miles of walking trails, sports fields, tennis courts, fishing ponds, splash pad, swimming pool, dog park, and picnic areas. This lush green Midtown centerpiece is both a respite from the bustle of city life and, during warmer weather, a hub of festivals too numerous to list. It is also an access point for the popular Eastside Trail of the Atlanta Beltline connecting Midtown to Historic Intown Atlanta and other points around the city.
Built between 1905 and 1930, the affluent Ansley Park neighborhood is one of the best preserved gems of history in Atlanta right in the heart of Midtown. Located just west of Piedmont Park, Ansley Park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The stunning historic architecture is diverse in size, scale, and architectural period and is complemented by wide winding roads designed for automobiles unlike the grid of narrow streetcar paths found in older areas of Atlanta. Mature trees and extensive landscaping of lush meandering parks extending deep into the neighborhood create the feel of a quiet retreat far from the bustle of Midtown Atlanta’s vibrant cultural and culinary scene that is in reality only a few blocks away. Families in the area with school-age children enjoy access to highly-ranked Morningside elementary and Inman Park middle schools as well as prominent nearby Atlanta private schools including Pace Academy and the Atlanta International School.
On the east side of Midtown, you’ll find Virginia-Highland, at the intersection of North Highland Avenue and Virginia Avenue. The original streetcar suburb of Atlanta is famous for its historic bungalow homes built from the 1910s to 1930s - many of which have been beautifully renovated - and its eclectic mix of charming sidewalk cafes, coffee shops, nightspots, and boutiques. The area is a tightly knit community with highly rated schools, and an active neighborhood association that caters to hip upper class professionals who want to be in the heart of the best Atlanta has to offer.
Beyond the western boundary of Midtown, defined by the Georgia Tech campus & Atlantic Station Development, you’ll find Midtown’s edgier sibling West Midtown - also colloquially known as the Upper Westside.Once largely industrial and the site of much of Atlanta’s Civil War history, it is now home to an eclectic mix of urban lofts and new construction single family bungalows, townhomes, and - recently in development - the area’s first high-rise. Developments such as Atlantic Station, Westside Provisions District, the Westside Beltline Trail, and the highly anticipated 280-acre Westside Reservoir Park at Bellwood Quarry have attracted an abundance of home buyers even as property values have soared in recent years. The “hip vibe” of West Midtown that attracts true urban dwellers, from millennials to empty nesters, is due in part to the vibrant creative community nestled into repurposed industrial complexes like the King Plow Arts Center/Terminal West and The Goat Farm. You’ll find a diverse mix of live music venues, art galleries, working artist studios, performing arts theaters, artisans, and foundries. This attraction hasn’t been lost on the corporate world either. Many offices, including Facebook’s Atlanta office, have relocated to the desirable open floor plans of converted industrial complexes like Brickworks.
