Ardmore Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
A tree-lined, family-friendly community located in a secluded Atlanta neighborhood that falls between Collier Road, Peachtree Road, and 28th Street, Ardmore Park is one of South Buckhead’s hidden jewels. A historical area in the truest sense of the word, it is built on the site that marked the division between the Confederate and the Union troops during the Civil War’s Battle of Peachtree Creek.
Ardmore Park was itself established in the late 1940s, built around the home of famous Atlanta resident Andrew Jackson Collier. Today, it is a largely residential neighborhood that’s popular among families, since it is located in a relatively safe and quiet area just blocks away from the hustle and bustle of Buckhead. It is an ideal location for those who are looking for the advantages of urban life, combined with the attractive qualities of suburban living.
One of the area’s best features is that it is home to one of the most well-maintained and safest parks in Atlanta. The park, although not expansive in size, is home to a walking trail as well as a playground, making it a perfect place for an afternoon respite for adults and children alike. Ardmore Park connects to neighboring Tanyard Creek Park, and is all set to be part of the Beltline project, currently in the planning stages and set to begin construction in 2011. The Beltline trail will greatly benefit Ardmore Park, connecting it to Downtown’s Atlanta Memorial Park.
Housing in Ardmore Park is plentiful and upscale, home to not only a good variety of attractive family homes, but also a new complex for townhomes and condominiums called Brookwood Heights At Ardmore. With an average property value of $350,000, an active neighborhood association, and regular patrols of the area by a private security firm, Ardmore Park is an affluent, family-oriented community you’d be proud to call home.
