Nestled in the northeast corner of Druid Hills adjacent to Emory University, the subdivision of University Park-Emory Highlands-Emory Estates boasts gorgeous historic homes set along curved, tree-lined streets, providing its residents with the best combination of quiet suburban living and intown convenience. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this trio of neighborhoods has long been one of the most coveted residential destinations in the Atlanta metro—a legacy that continues to this day.


Take North Decatur Road in either direction to find plenty of shops and restaurants clustered in two commercial areas: Emory Commons to the east, and Emory Village to the west. Residents can also enjoy numerous parks and open spaces nearby, or play a round of golf at the Druid Hills Golf Club just south of Emory Village. And despite their suburban feel, these neighborhoods are conveniently located within minutes of Decatur, Buckhead and downtown Atlanta, making it easy to enjoy the best shops, restaurants and attractions the metro has to offer.


The University Park-Emory Highlands-Emory Estates subdivision lies within the DeKalb County School District, whose schools consistently test above the state average, with Fernbank Elementary in particular ranking among the top schools in the state. This area also hosts some excellent private schools, including Arbor Montessori and Ben Franklin Academy, among others. On the opposite side of North Druid Hills Road lies the prestigious Emory University, making this neighborhood highly convenient for students and faculty alike.


This is known for its historic homes, with the neighborhoods developed progressively between 1916 and 1943. Here, you’ll find a selection of quaint English-Vernacular cottages, charming Craftsman bungalows, and a few larger colonial dwellings. Home prices in this area reflect the neighborhood’s popularity, with smaller homes starting in the upper $400s and larger homes typically exceeding $1 million.

The charm of quiet suburban living combined with the convenience to Emory University and greater Atlanta: these are the characteristics that continue to make University Park-Emory Highlands-Emory Estates one of the metro’s most popular neighborhoods.  For current availability, contact Peggy Hibbert today.
