"Prestige Near Piedmont"

Castlewood is an affluent neighborhood in north Atlanta. It’s surrounded by Argonne Forest, Brandon, and Wynngate and is a short drive to I-85. It is one of the many neighborhoods in the Buckhead community. The schools are highly sought after and are rated as some of the best.

The homes are essentially mansions with very large yards, which is perfect for growing families. Built in the 1950s, Castlewood is well established. Because of this, there is an elitist air so it’s hard to squeeze in the already established social circles.

There is shopping galore and recreation at nearby Piedmont Park, which is only four miles away. It is within walking distance to Memorial Park. The top schools in the areas include Pace Academy, The Heiskell School, and North Atlanta High School.

If you are looking for a well-rounded neighborhood, Castlewood is it. You can pretty much be guaranteed you will be safe, never run out of dining and shopping options, and have plenty of space to raise the kids.
Pros
  • beautiful trees
  • close to several shopping centers
