"Average living at best"

Deerwood Atlanta is one of those average little neighborhoods, with nothing special to see. So, if you happen to be looking for excitement in some shape or form, you will most likely have to travel outside of this neighborhood to find it. It’s average residential living at its best. Deerwood is located in southwest Atlanta. It is in relatively close proximity to the Ben Hills neighborhood.

Many of the houses in this neighborhood are single family homes that were most likely built between the 1960’s through the 1980’s. Cost of living is pretty inexpensive. This mostly attracts middle class working families to this live in this area. There are several really nice charter schools in the vicinity, if you are looking to relocate here. Just a few nearby schools include Deerwood Elementary, Southwest Atlanta Christian Academy and Heritage Preparatory Academy.

Not too far from this neighborhood, you will find Deerwood Park and N. Camp Creek Parkway Nature Preserve. This is a nice perk if you are looking to explore the local neighborhood parks. Although there is not much to do immediately in this area, shopping stores in the Cascade area, and Greenbriar Mall are pretty close-by. There is not much of a nightlife or anything like that here. But, there are a few decent restaurants located by the shopping centers.
  • great prices for homebuyers
  • not much to do
