Collier Hills North Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
An elegant community set in the Buckhead area of Atlanta, Collier Hills North is an example of old-fashioned family life adjacent to a modern-day urban setting. The area was founded in 1939, when construction on the first single story homes began, and a community was built around the newly established, charming Cape Cod-style constructions. Although the area has since expanded to include a more modern cul-de-sac in the 1960s, it still gives the appearance of the conservative, affluent, and family-oriented neighborhood it was originally intended to be. As a result, it is most attractive to career-oriented singles, young couples, and small families, although the newer homes located on the cul-de-sac tend to be larger, and more suitable for larger, more established families.
Location is a key factor in the success and desirability of Collier Hills North, as it is adjacent to highly valued Atlanta Memorial Park on three sides of the area. The sections of Atlanta Memorial Park that surround Collier Hills North include Bobby Jones Golf Course, Tanyard Creek, and Tanyard Creek Park. The result of this highly desirable location is that residents enjoy a sense of safety and seclusion, while still living in a thriving metropolis. Another aspect is that property values aren’t exactly a bargain, with homes ranging anywhere between $500,000 and $950,000.
For those who work in the city of Atlanta and want the benefits of a suburban lifestyle without the grueling commute, Collier Hills North is a very good option. The area is wonderful for families with either pets, children, or both, as it boasts a well-maintained playground and a fairly expansive dog park. In 2000, Atlanta Magazine named the area “The Best Place to Take Your Pet”, and the residents are heavily active in helping to maintain a clean, beautiful, and prosperous community. When it comes to a perfect family oasis, it’s hard to top the appeal of Collier Hills North.
