Gourmet dining. Eclectic shopping. Inspiring art galleries. Charming historic bungalows. These are just a few of the perks that have made Virginia-Highland (or “VaHi,” if you’re local to the area) one of Atlanta’s most coveted neighborhoods. Consistently claiming such titles as “Most Walkable Neighborhood” and “Favorite Neighborhood” in local publications, this commercial-residential area centered around the intersection of Virginia and Highland Avenues truly offers all the best that intown living has to offer.


Most shopping and dining within VaHi can be found clustered in four commercial villages throughout the neighborhood, all within walking distance of each other. Relax at a quaint sidewalk cafe, catch a great live show at one of the local nightclubs, browse trendy clothes and home décor, wander through the art galleries—it’s all here, just steps from home. If you prefer the outdoors, spend some time at one of local parks, or visit the sprawling 189-acre Piedmont Park, found just west of the neighborhood.


Children in Virginia-Highland have access to some of the best public education available to be found in the state, with Springdale Park Elementary and Inman Middle School both listed among the top-rated schools in Georgia. Private school options abound in the area, as well, with The Paideia School and Montessori In Town both nearby—and of course, the prestigious Emory University, located just east in nearby Druid Hills.


Virginia-Highland is mainly known for its abundance of historic Craftsman-style bungalows, which contributes to its overall charm. Walkability and location definitely fuel the home prices in this popular Atlanta neighborhood, with median home values approaching $600,000. However, a deeper look reveals a wider spread of home pricing options for many different budgets. While stand-alone homes often range from the high $400s to more than $1 million, Virignia-Highland also offers some comfortable condos and apartments that often start as low as the mid $100s.

If there’s a neighborhood in Atlanta that exemplifies the live-work-play lifestyle, it’s Virginia Highland, with almost everything you need easily in walking distance. All of Atlanta is within reach, but once you make this neighborhood your home, chances are you won’t want to leave.
