Known as the City in a Forest, Atlanta has some of the most beautiful lush canopy views. These six neighborhoods top the list for real estate in the trees.

Tuxedo Park

What began as a hub for wealthy Atlantans to transform forest and farmland in the early 1900s grew into an exclusive and impressive array of homes that may just take your breath away today. Not only is Tuxedo Park peppered with fine estates, but the surrounding environment makes you feel way out of the city. Houses sit atop unreal acreage for city living and help you escape the hustle and bustle. You may even get to glimpse a celebrity in the wild!

Argonne Forest

Argonne Forest is a close-knit community filled with 1950s-esque reflection in the architecture that resides on wooded lots. The neighborhood boasts charm, French-named streets and wide yards that complement the surrounding wooded area. Located in the heart of Buckhead, the area is a welcome sight after driving through the bustling city.


Now this is a neighborhood you would never expect to be located in an urban environment. The homes have both a view and are right up against the canopy of Atlanta, bringing the birds just outside your window and enveloping the tranquil homes in green. Whether you are looking for a ranch-style home or a hefty investment, the graceful cohesion of this area will draw you to its tree-lined hideaway.

Whitewater Creek

The neighborhood most likely to immerse you into nature is Whitewater Creek, perfect for the outdoorsy family who wants the convenience of Buckhead dining. The intimate community is tucked right into the Chattahoochee River, including trailheads for some of the most idyllic hiking in the Atlanta area. There is no cut-through here, which preserves the quiet expanse of green space and the view of the river.

Ansley Park

Don’t forget about Midtown! Ansley Park takes the win for providing residents with the forest views many are getting farther north of the city. Complete with luxuriantly green flora perfect for parks and cycling trails, the neighborhood’s character draws in families to settle down between Peachtree Street and Piedmont Road with a look into the forested surroundings.

Chastain Park

Chastain Park is not only a popular live-event destination, but surrounding the park are noteworthy homes and stunning landscapes. Though it is larger than the aforementioned forest retreats, the vibrant community of walking, running, recreational sports and restaurants exists under the same overhang of greenery that makes Castlewood so tranquil. The area’s very own park is the centerpiece, and the houses complement it well.
