Located in western DeKalb County, Brookhaven was recently incorporated – in 2012 – and is now one of the largest cities in its county. It’s also the oldest planned golf community in the state, and you can see the attention to greenspace, landscaping and natural beauty this planning required reflected among its mature trees, maintained public spaces and lush lots. Three parks provide plenty of space for sports and hiking trails, while the playgrounds are prized by the many families in the area.
Originally conceived as three, separate subdivisions in the early 1900s, Brookhaven became more solidified between 1910 and 1940, when construction and development boomed. You’ll notice the architectural styles of this period reflected throughout Brookhaven’s homes.
The National Register of Historic Places synopsizes them this way: “Houses include one and two-story buildings finished in wood, brick, stucco, and stone. Most of the houses are designed in Colonial or Georgian Revival styles. They typically have three or five bays, gable hipped roofs, weatherboard or brick exteriors, and front entrances highlighted by a frontispiece doorway, a small portico, or a doorway trimmed with sidelights or over lights. Each lot is richly landscaped with pines and other shade trees, shrubs, ground covers and grass lawns.”
While it can seem far removed from the hustle of Atlanta life, Brookhaven is actually situated well to enjoy the benefits an urban hub has to offer. The MARTA rail line is easily accessible, as are Lenox Square Mall, the Buckhead community and Phipps Plaza.

As a foreigner who has recently relocated to Atlanta, I was very impressed by Ashley’s knowledge of the Buckhead area, which is where my husband and I were looking to purchase a home. Ashley is really on the ball with the latest internet tools that help you with searching for your ideal home, which for us was very overwhelming and a completely new experience! She made it so easy for us to search her websites and then pick and choose what we liked. Viewings of the properties we liked were then arranged straight away. I would highly recommend Ashley with helping anyone find the right home and location in and around Atlanta.
