What: Buckhead is a highly sought after area to live in Atlanta. It is known for its busy commercial center, historic estates and great shopping. It offers both more urban living options (condominium high rises) and more suburban neighborhoods with single family homes.
When: In 1838, Henry Irby purchased 202 acres that make up a large chunk of present day Buckhead. The name comes from a story that Irby killed a large buck on the property and mounted it in a prominent location.
Where: Buckhead is the uptown district of Atlanta encompassing roughly the northern fifth of the city.
Why: Atlanta has been all over the news this week but also some family friends are moving overseas after living in Buckhead for almost 10 years and I am sad that we never got the chance to go visit them.

House #1: $210,000
This one bedroom condominium is located on the 13th floor in a desirable building. The amenities include a rooftop pool, gym, shared patio space and a private deck. I particularly like the big windows and the view.
House #2: $479,900
This is my favorite house of the bunch. The home was originally a hunting lodge that was converted to a single family home. I love the outdoor living space, wooded lot and all the windows.
House #3: $799,900
This home has really nice curb appeal. I like all the porches on the front and back and how the indoor living spaces blend into the outdoor.
House #4: $999,900
Originally built in 1938 this home was completely renovated in 2000. It features an open floor plan, chef's kitchen, master suit and new systems and windows. Oh and a pool which would be quite nice in HOT-lanta.
Have a good weekend everyone!
