"Like Night and Day"

Stone Road Southwest is a very interesting street and neighborhood. In a lot of ways, its like night and day.

Stone Road is located relatively close to Greenbriar Mall. With that being said, there is increased traffic, activity, noise, and everything else that goes along with being located near a major commercial and retail shopping area. As you move further from the mall area, you pass The New Tyler Perry Studios, a beautifully maintained senior citizen's complex, and nice tree lined streets.

Then, there is a section of Stone Road that leaves much to be desired. The roadway itself becomes rough, and the neighborhood reflects the same way. There are old poorly maintained apartment complexes, just a few, and a small park that doesn't seem safe enough for any child to play in.

However, as soon as you round the densely tree lined bend, it's like traveling in an entirely different area. New homes are being constructed amongst older well maintained homes; some of which are in the quarter of a million to half a million dollar range. The lawns are manicured, and neighborhood spirit and pride become readily evident. That's one of the things I have found most appealing about living in the greater Atlanta area. All it takes is turning one corner, and the landscape and atmosphere change completely.

Stone Road is also home to Woodland Middle School; a relatively new school, built in the past 7 to 8 years. The school is nicely maintained, and seems to have been a welcomed addition to the neighborhood. With a middle school comes increased traffic and noise, but primarily at certain times of day during the school year and when there are evening events.

If you pick the right section of Stone Road, it can be a nice place to live.
Pros
  • Prominent middle school
  • Established community and neighborhood
  • family and retiree friendly
Cons
  • close to major commercial and retail shopping in certain sections
  • portions of the street are not well maintained
