Let’s start with a neighborhood that I know very well, Grant Park. I moved her in the spring of 2010 without knowing too much about what the area had to offer. I was lucky enough to find a duplex on Cherokee Avenue through a friend, walking distance to about 25 shops, restaurants and other amenities. I had never lived like this…walking to dinner and the park and leaving the car parked once I got home each day from showing property etc. It changed my life and my wife and I just put down firm roots in the nieghborhood by purchasing a home just off of the park itself. Our church is walking distance as is the Grant Park Farmers Market, and we have Zoo Atlanta, tennis courts and a huge swimming pool just out the front door. We know all of our neigbors and have really made a commitment to the neighborhood by joining the Grant Park Neighborhood Association. We love it here and the growth happening before our eyes shows that things continue to trend in a positive direction.
First off the Beltline of course. The southeast border of Grant Park is the Beltline itself and we can not wait to bike down the street and hop on the new intown thoroughfare and zip over to the new Krog Street Market and Piedmont Park. It’s really changing the way we look at our work commutes and our options for exercise and traveling from one cool neighborhood to the other. Just a few years ago, the Jane was not even there and now it is home to businesses and restaurants that bring people from all over Atlanta. From Cherokee Avenue at Oakland Cemetary heading west down Memorial Drive toward Downtown we have new apartments going up as well as the new Habitat for Humanity building heading east toward the Beltline as it crosses Memorial. New businesses are popping up everywhere and the density continues to increase as the neighborhood continues to offer more and more amenities for everyone to enjoy.
I can honestly say Grant Park has more to offer than almost any other neighborhood intown and I am proud to call it home. Real estate is very affordable to expensive here and the historic charm of the 100 year old Craftsman bungalows hooked me immediately. Please let me know how I may assist with your real estate needs at any point and have agreat summer!
