"Fancy little suburb"

Brandon is a fancy Atlanta suburb that is practically located in the Buckhead area. The neighborhood is nestled between two popular streets, Howell Mill Road and Moores Mill Road. Brandon, like many other similar Buckhead neighborhoods, enjoys the luxury of being close to several shopping boutiques and up-scale restaurants. Lenox Square Mall is only about 12 minutes away, while Phipps Plaza is about 14 minutes from the area.

This neighborhood is home to some of the most beautiful estates in the Atlanta area. Here, you will find gorgeous 1950’s historic single family homes, as well as newer (1990’s and up) mini-mansions all mixed together. This area is perfect for the well-established crowd.

Brandon is a wonderful place for families to live. Several prestigious private schools and top-notch public schools share this community including Atlanta Girls School, Morris Brandon Elementary School and St Anne's Episcopal School. In addition, there are some nearby parks with playgrounds. Parents will also enjoy the added perk of the Bobby Jones Golf Course as it is pretty close.

There are a few family practices and pediatrics facilities close-by. But, of course... what would a fancy neighborhood like this be like without your ever-popular plastic surgery centers? Over all, this is a nice up-scale neighborhood to consider if you are looking to experience all that suburban living has to offer.
Pros
  • nice homes
  • close to several shopping centers
Cons
