Peachtree Hills History

One of Buckhead's coziest cottage neighborhoods, Peachtree Hills lies east of Peachtree Road between Peachtree Creek on the south and Lindbergh Drive on the north.  Development in the area was begun in 1910 on land that then was between the village of Buckhead and the city of Atlanta.

An early plat says "Peachtree Hills Place lies high and dry -- a site of most wonderful natural beauty -- 90 feet above the surrounding country; overlooking and fronting the beautiful Peachtree Road . . . just 18 minutes on the Buckhead [trolley] car. Come out in the fresh open air where life is worth living." Original lots cost $500 and up.

Today, Peachtree Hills is still one of those places "where life is worth living." Its eclectic, mostly craftsman homes are a kaleidoscope of color, with intimate gardens and innovative fences and walls. Huge trees soar over the bungalows on the bluffs above Peachtree Creek.

The neighborhood is bisected by Peachtree Hills Avenue, with antiques shops and restaurants at the intersection with Kings Circle. Peachtree Battle Shopping Center and other great shopping and restaurants are nearby on Peachtree Road. The Lindbergh MARTA rail station is within walking distance.
