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.
