"Not Quite the White House"

I’m usually a bit curious of communities ending in “Homes,” particularly when named after presidents. But Lincoln Homes made a favorable first impression! With minimal stereotypical reminders of neighborhoods in need of TLC, Lincoln Homes is tidy, peaceful and striving.

Newer properties on the market are priced between $50K to $90K for townhomes and $150K+ for single-family residences. Older houses are priced for less, while several foreclosures further depress home values.

About nine miles northwest of Atlanta, Lincoln Homes is practically enveloped by parks, including Lillian Cooper Shepherd, Abner Place, AD Williams, Carey, Gun Club, Sprink-Collins, Whittier Mill, Rockdale, Center Hill, Dale Creek and last but not least, the wonderful Chattahoochee Trail Park—all within less than a 31/2-mile radius of the Lincoln Homes community!

The parks are great for a growing family, as are the schools in this community. Lincoln Homes is near Scott, Bolton, Boyd, Usher and Towns elementary schools. Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy, Kindezi Charter School, Best Academy, Harper-Archer, University Community Academy, Douglass, Washington, Mays and North Atlanta High make up the area’s middle and high school roster.

Though not quite the area for a presidential palace, Lincoln Homes is a fabulous find for ordinary folks—like me!
