"A for effort"

Laurens Valley, Atlanta

Laurens Valley is located in southwest Atlanta. It is situated near two very popular Atlanta streets, Campbellton Rd SW and Cascade Rd. Many of the homes in this area are ranch-style structures that were built during the 1950’s through the 1970’s. This is the perfect middle-class neighborhood for so many reasons. For starters, it has plenty of lovely affordable brick homes, with big yards and large shade trees.

This is a nice neighborhood for nature lovers. Nearby parks include, Adams Park and Cascade Springs Nature Preserve. These beautiful green spaces are perfect for mid-summer hikes and occasional picnics. The Alfred Tup Holmes Golf Course is also nearby, which is such a wonderful added bonus.

Laurens Valley is also an ideal community for families. The neighborhood’s schools include, Renaissance Montessori School, Kimberly Elementary School and Therell High School.

This area is also not too far from Greenbriar Mall. Which can be a good thing depending on how you look at it. Lately the stores in this mall have gone down a bit. Some of the major retailers have moved and left a host of weird random shopping selections to choose from. Lastly, there are several local nightclubs within a 1-mile radius to Laurens Valley- perfect for the younger crowd. Over all, I’d say that this is a pretty nice neighborhood to look into. One of the only downfalls is that property value is down a bit.
Pros
  • low housing costs
Cons
  • could have better shopping options
