Claiming the title “Atlanta’s First Suburb,” the coveted neighborhood of Inman Park was originally designed in the late 1800s as a “streetcar suburb” where residents could make the easy commute to nearby downtown Atlanta via electric trolley. While the trolleys are long gone, this historic district today retains its quiet neighborhood charm, providing the best of intown living just two miles east of downtown.

SHOPPING, DINING, ATTRACTIONS

Designed as a “garden suburb,” Inman Park has historic Springvale Park as its centerpiece, a serene green space with a pond and walking trails. Today, the sprawling, cross-shaped Freedom Park also extends southward into Inman Park, with meandering parkways culminating at the MARTA station at the south side of the neighborhood, and opening to the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library to the north. Inman Park has become a distinctive culinary destination with numerous celebrity chef restaurants plus shopping and dining options plentiful in all directions, with the most convenient commercial hub located in nearby Little Five Points. The annual Inman Park Festival, hosted each April by the neighborhood association, is one of the most popular street festivals in Atlanta, featuring a street market with plenty of arts and crafts, a parade, live music and a Tour of Homes.

EDUCATION

Inman Park students attend some of the best public schools in the state, with nearby Mary Lin Elementary and Inman Middle School both achieving exceptionally high ratings. Several acclaimed private schools are also close by, including The Suzuki School, Paideia School and The New School, an independent high school located on Edgewood Avenue just to the south.

HOMES IN INMAN PARK

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Inman Park features many historic homes, most of which have been restored in recent memory, ranging from small bungalows and shotguns to large mansions built in a variety of architectural styles. Newer dwellings are available as well, including a number of luxury townhomes and condos which add to the neighborhood’s urban feel. Home prices tend toward the high end of the spectrum, with median home values approaching $425,000. However, Inman Park has something for nearly every budget, with comfortable condos starting in the high $100s, and larger restored homes nearer to $1 million.

No longer a suburb, historic Inman Park remains today as one of Atlanta’s best options for those who love the combination of urban living and neighborhood charm. To check availability, consult with Peggy.
