"Are you your neighbors keeper?"

The Orchard Knob neighborhood is located in southeast Atlanta. It is situated between Browns Mill Road and Jonesboro Road SE. As for the good stuff, this area is not too far from the Lake Charlotte Nature Preserve. This is great for families and country lovers alike. Nearby schools include, Humphries Elementary School, South Atlanta High School and Kipp Academy. There are a few additional schooling options as well.

Outside of that, there is not too much to say about this little neighborhood. If you drive through Orchard Knob, you’ll notice that not all the neighbors living here share in their part to help make this place as nice as it could be. You’ll see a few nice houses, but, you’ll also notice sporadic abandoned homes and un-kept yards. Oh... and lets not forget, those pesky neighbors who have about two or three broken-down junk cars (or trucks) just sitting smack dab in the middle of their front lawns.

Things like this really irritate me, because it makes the whole neighborhood look bad. I would avoid places like this with the quickness. I mean... maybe you might get lucky enough to find a particular block that has neighbors who really care about the aesthetics of the entire community, but don’t hold your breath.

I guess, it is also fitting to say that property value here is fairly reasonable. I would say that the residents of this neighborhood are most likely working class families and retirees. Sorry to be so harsh folks, but I think this neighborhood could be so much nicer if everyone did their part.
