"Not a shrinking violet"

Like its sister community directly north, South Tuxedo Park is distinctive and beautiful. And though not quite as opulent and exclusive, this community deserves high marks for luxurious homes and picturesque landscapes. With several homes on the market priced between high six- and low seven-figures, this community boldly stand on its own.

South Tuxedo Park sits closely to Argonne Forest, Arden/Habersham and Peachtree Heights West communities, and is convenient to GA-400, Roswell Rd, West Paces Ferry and Peachtree Rd, NE. It shares Lenox-area shopping and dining with its namesake, and is in walking distance to neighborhood favorites like A Piece of Cake and The Capital Grille in Buckhead Village. Atlanta History Center, Bagley Park, Buckhead Branch Library and Atlanta Fish Market are additional attractions within one-mile walking distance.

In addition to those listed in Tuxedo Park, the following schools are proximate to South Tuxedo Park:

Brandon Elementary School
Christ The King School
Atlanta International School
Atlanta Girls School
The Westminster Schools

Lush greenery is ubiquitous throughout Buckhead, and the South Tuxedo Park extension is not overlooked. Mature oaks, dogwoods and pines add to the community’s southern character and charm. On its own merits, South Tuxedo Park is splendidly dressed indeed!

"Cute little boutiques and restaurants"

South Tuxedo Park is a lively fun area that is located in the heart of Buckhead. Nearby streets include West Paces Ferry, Roswell Rd, and Peachtree Rd NE. Unlike its close relative, Tuxedo Park (which is mostly residential), South Tuxedo Park consists of mostly boutiques and restaurants. It is a hip little hang out spot for youngsters (or the young at heart). I especially like the boutiques in this area. Most of them are located in adorable little houses, instead of the traditional shopping center.

If you are in the area, you might want to check out Coast Seafood and Raw Bar. Their Shrimp and Grits is just scrumptious. Plus, the restaurant has a beautiful serene ambiance (especially in the summer time -if you choose to sit outside). If you are visiting on the weekend, you might want to call in your reservation, because there definitely might be a little wait.

Speaking of which... although I do like this area, traffic can get a little congested on weekends. If you’ve got lots of patience, then it really isn’t that big of a deal. But if not, you should try visiting during the typical week day (when things are slowed down a bit).
Pros
  • lots of cute shopping boutiques
  • great restaurants
Cons
  • bad traffic
