More About Druid Hills
One of Atlanta’s oldest and most respected neighborhoods, Druid Hills has been impressing residents and visitors alike since its origination in the late 1800s.
Designed by renowned landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted (whose accomplishments already included Central Park, the US Capitol, Biltmore Estate, and Brooklyn’s Prospect Park), Druid Hills has been called “a rare example of Olmsted’s design intentions intact in its principal features,” according to the U.S. Department of the Interior.
Neighborhood Features & In-Town Convenience
With numerous parks, walkways, and lush landscaping, Druid Hills has influenced many other Atlanta neighborhoods and contributed to making Atlanta a park-like city. The landscaping is well-maintained and lush, and the streets are wide and walkable, with sidewalks. Homes in Druid Hills are in an excellent location – Virginia-Highland and Midtown are a short drive to the west, Decatur a few minutes to the east, and I-20, I-75/85, and I-285 close enough to get you anywhere in the city you need to be.
