Buckhead Real Estate
Style and elegance intermingled with Southern hospitality.
Buckhead is Atlanta’s most affluent residential neighborhood filled with an endless array of luxury homes and shopping.
The city has experienced tremendous growth since it was annexed to the city of Atlanta in 1952, evolving into the vibrant community of interconnected neighborhoods it is today. Buckhead is home to some of Atlanta’s most luxurious high-rise condominium buildings as well as streets chock-full of grand historic homes with rolling manicured lawns. Although newer homes continue to be built in the area, Buckhead’s various neighborhoods contain some of Atlanta’s most architecturally significant residences designed by a who’s-who of nationally recognized architects.
Buckhead’s elegant and tree-lined residential streets are full of some of the most remarkable architecture and landscapes in the South, including its prized Swan House
, located at the Atlanta History Center
