"Perfect for preppy families"

Fernleaf is a cute little neighborhood located about 14 minutes away from Downtown, Atlanta. It is situated between Defoors Ferry Rd NW and Marietta Blvd NW. Fernleaf is an ideal, super nice middle class Atlanta neighborhood, with nice sized houses and large yards. It seems like the perfect place for families looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city (but still be relatively close enough to everything).

Piedmont hospital is only about 3 miles away. Plus, there are two nearby parks, Crest Lawn Memorial Park and Coronet Way Park (a smaller playground park). I must also clarify, that Crest Lawn Memorial Park is not your traditional park. It’s actually a historic Atlanta gravesite that played a part in the Battle of Atlanta, during the Civil War. On a more upbeat note, the area is also in close proximity to two golf courses; Cross Creek Golf Club and the Bobby Jones Golf Course. This is the perfect outlet if you enjoy golfing on beautiful hills surrounded by lush nature. If you’re lucky, you might even spot some ducks or geese when the whether is nice out.

This neighborhood is especially close to several prestigious Atlanta schools ( Pace Academy, The Westminster Schools and the Atlanta Girls’ School). If you are considering sending your little one to any of these schools, you better be financially prepared to fork out about 20K. Housing in this neighborhood reflects the schools, and can get pretty expensive as well. All and all, this is a great neighborhood if you can afford to live here.
