"Berkeley Lake GA is the best kept secret in GA. The 88 acre lake makes you feel like your on vacation every day!"

Berkeley Lake is a city with an 88 acre private lake. It is northeast of Atlanta (literally straight up Peachtree Rd), just outside I-285.
It’s tucked in between Peachtree Pkwy (141), Peachtree Industrial Blvd, and the Chattahoochee River.
The location can’t be beat! We are:
10 minutes to I-285
25 minutes to Buckhead
14 minutes to the Doraville MARTA Station
8 minutes to downtown Historic Norcross
You'll find homes from the mid $200's up to well over $1 million.
Come see why this is the best kept secret in Atlanta.
Pros
  • 88 acre clean lake stocked with fish
  • 20 miles from the center of Atlanta
  • this is a slice of Mayberry... remember the Andy Griffith show?
Cons
  • home prices and be steep if you want to be lakefront
  • I've heard the schools are not rated tops, but most kids I know do very well in these schools!
