Quiet, green, cozy, charming. Located within walking distance of Emory University, the historic neighborhood of Emory Grove is a small Druid Hills subdivision consisting of approximately 100 quaint cottage homes hailing from the 1930s and 1940s. Originally developed as off-campus housing for Emory faculty and staff, today Emory Grove is one of Atlanta’s most desirable neighborhoods, offering a delightful midpriced alternative to some of the more pricey real estate found in the area.


Greenery abounds in this highly walkable subdivision, with no less than three parks to enjoy on either side of North Decatur Road.  About a half mile to the west lies Emory Village, the commercial center of Druid Hills with plenty of convenient shopping and dining options. Other Atlanta attractions like the Fernbank Museum of Natural History and the Atlanta Botanical Garden are just a few minutes’ drive from here.


Besides the obvious presence of Emory University just steps away, young people in Emory Grove have access to some of the best public schooling in the state of Georgia. Depending on age, students attend Fernbank Elementary, Druid Hills Middle School and Druid Hills High School, all of which rate well above the state average. 


Nearly all the homes in Emory Grove date back to the subdivision’s original development in the ’30s and ’40s, prompting the neighborhood to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000. Most of the dwellings are small to midsize homes built in either Gothic Revival or Colonial Revival styles. Home prices reflect both the location and size of the houses, ranging anywhere from the mid-$300s to the mid-$800s. Because of the small size and high popularity of this neighborhood, inventory tends to be low, so when homes come available, it’s wise to act quickly.

If you desire the intown lifestyle of Druid Hills, the convenience of the Atlanta Metro and the serenity of a quiet neighborhood, Emory Grove might just be the place for you. Talk to Peggy to learn more.
