"Quaint and Quiet"

A mile from Interstate 285 and the Langford Parkway, the Butner/Tell neighborhood in Southwest Atlanta offers a peaceful distraction from bustle and noise of Downtown. With easy access to the Camp Creek Parkway, Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and South Fulton government buildings, this neighborhood offers an idyllic, kids-friendly slice of suburban life into the Big City. Known for its natural beauty and green spaces, this neighborhood is an outdoors lover’s dream.

With a very low crime rate, housing prices that are among the lowest in metropolitan Atlanta, and four public schools in the area, Butner/Tell is very popular with professionals and new families. The Greenbriar Mall and the Westgate Shopping Center are nearby, offering shopping and entertainment options for area residents; and with Ben Hill Park, Deerwood Park, Tucson Trail Park, Stone Hogan Park, and Cowart Lake, and with many natural preserves and campgrounds, there are many attractions and beauty spots in this area to enjoy.

This neighborhood is not the flashiest or the richest, but it has a lot to offer and many treasures to behold. It’s a great place to live, a great place to raise children, and a great place to explore!

"Pleasant little place"

Butner / Tell is a neighborhood that is located in southwest Atlanta. It gets its name from the two intersecting streets nearby, Butner Road and Tell Road Southwest. This is a nice little area, that has a wonderful woodsy feel. It is totally infused with big pine trees, winding hills, and large yards.

This community has plenty of beautiful well-maintained, ranch-style brick homes. The cost of living is pretty reasonable as well, which is just an all around good deal. So many times, there are neighborhoods that have great prices, but the structures might not be as nice. Consider this neighborhood one of the better choices for middle class families.

This place is perfect for nature lovers. There are so many nearby parks to choose from (if you are looking to get out and catch a nice breeze). Tucson Trail Park, Deerwood Park and Ben Hill Recreation Center are just a few green spaces to put on your “to visit” list. This community is also close to several small lakes.

Shoppers might like the fact that Butner / Tell is just minutes away from Greenbriar Mall. This mall is a bit lackluster when compared to malls like Lenox Square, and Phipps Plaza. But... hey, I guess it’s not too bad .

Nearby schools include, Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy, Deerwood Elementary, and Ralph Bunche Middle School (just to name a few). Over all, this is a nice area to check out.
