"Lovely older neighborhood near Cascade"

What’s not to like about this older but well-maintained neighborhood in southwest Atlanta? Quiet, lovely, nicely priced, yet near everything. I used to live in this area, moving here from the Northeast.

From my first visit there, I was a fan. Where else in the metro area can you find beautiful ranch style and two-story homes on more than a half an acre of land (with generous back AND front yards) – without having to sell your grandmother? Apparently it is Heritage Valley. One of my favorite streets there – and quite possibly the most descriptively named street anywhere – is Rolling Green Ridge. This street completely personifies that peaceful neighborhood’s wide, and gently rolling side streets off of the busier Fairburn Road. Most of the residents are retirees that bought their homes back in the 1970’s, making this a stable area full of pride.

Heritage Valley seems to be surrounded by new southwest Atlanta residential development. Nonetheless, as you walk lazily through its streets you might not notice this. The 50-foot trees seem to protect the pristine views, making you hardly aware that it borders I-285 and traffic of Cascade Road.

Nonetheless, you are close to whatever you need there: grocery stores, coffee shops, schools, low-rise office buildings, Camp Creek shopping, and more.

"Tree-Lined Beauty"

Nestled on the Southwest corner of Atlanta, Georgia, Heritage Valley is a beautiful section of the city. The tree-lined streets are set in front of 1960's styled brick homes. Highway 285 runs through the middle of this community and allows you easy access to any of the city streets, as well as the retail areas.

The neighborhood children attend the nearby David T. Howard High School, while Adamsville Elementary and Bunche Middle School carter to the younger residents. All the schools are part of the Atlanta Independent School District.

This premier neighborhood has more than 500 business in or around Heritage Valley. Most of the 44,000 residents enjoy staying in contact with each other through the Heritage Valley Community Association newsletter that is published quarterly.

Even though there are few attractions within the Heritage Valley neighborhood, the area places you close to all the attractions Atlanta has to offer. Six Flags Amusement Park, the APEX Museum, Woodruff Arts Center and Atlanta Botanical Gardens are all a short drive away from the neighborhood.

Since the average age of the residents of Heritage Valley is only 32.1 years of age, this is a perfect community to start your family.
