The Very Valued Virginia Highland

February 2018

Virginia Highland, that oh-so-coveted neighborhood positioned perfectly between Piedmont Park and Ponce de Leon Avenue. It's a family-friendly and uber trendy area that offers the perfect combination of neighborhood charm and city-living.  It also happens to have an extremely high livability score. 

The area holds some of Georgia’s most beautiful gems, with 60 to 100-year-old homes boasting Victorian and colonial charm. The area holds some of the most sought-after homes in the entire Atlanta area. However, it still has plenty of affordable options on the real estate market. 

When considering which neighborhood to live in Atlanta, this should be very high on your list. From boutiques to art galleries and some of the best neighborhood bars in Atlanta, you’ll never run of out of entertainment sources.

Here are just a few highlights of the area:
