"The Epitome of City Living"

Equally as enchanting as the name “Sherwood Forest,” the community has magical touches that set it apart at first glance. For starters, you’ll find a variety of home styles with unique and vivid character including suburban ranch, cape cod, American colonial, neo-eclectic and even a bungalow or two. As one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the Atlanta area, homes in Sherwood Forest reflect stature and elegance as only a “pillar” community can.

Mature trees adorn the neighborhood providing shade, color and wonderful aromatic scents in the height of Springtime. Strolling along residential streets, you’re sure to spot impressive oaks, magnolias, pines, silver maples or tulip poplars, as well as an array of perennial shrubs and flowers; hence, the name “Sherwood Forest” is indeed befitting.

The community has active involvement within the Sherwood Forest Garden Club, which focuses on maintaining the beauty of the neighborhood through education about horticulture and gardening. The club also celebrates the neighborhood’s heritage and traditions, while promoting community spirit and support for its residents. Schools in the area include Morningside Elementary, Inman Middle, Grady High and Atlanta International, while several schools for higher education are close by, including Savannah College of Art Design.

Seated near the split of I-85 from I-75N, Sherwood Forest is convenient to Midtown, Buckhead and Downtown Atlanta. It is flanked by many recreational and culturally interesting venues within walking distance, including Piedmont Park, Ansley Park Golf Course, Atlanta Botanical Gardens, the High Museum of Art and the Alliance Theater. And of course, there’s tons of great shopping and restaurants to make Sherwood Forest a truly treasured community.

"The heart of city living"

Sheerwood Forest is a ritzy Atlanta suburb that is located a little north of Ansley Park. It is one of those places where just about everyone would literally love to live. I mean, who wouldn’t want to call a mini-mansion “home” for a day (or two). Cost of living in this affluent neighborhood can get pretty high. Some residents who rest their heads here live in estates priced well over a million bucks.

This neighborhood is close to several of the city’s coolest attractions. Atlantic Station, a really trendy outdoor shopping mall, is essentially only 1 mile away. So, shops like Dillard’s, DSW and Bannana Republic are practically right in your backyard. Another perk is that Atlantic Station is also home to Regal Atlantic Station Stadium 16 & IMAX Movie theater. Moviegoers, feel free to insert applause here_____.

This area is surrounded by some of the most wonderful restaurants in Atlanta. R Thomas Deluxe Grill, Bluefin and Nan Thai Fine Dining are just a few popular choices for hungry shoppers in the area.

Savannah College of Art and Design and The Portfolio Center, are a couple of popular artsy schools that are within a 1 mile radius to the Sheerwood Forest neighborhood. This area is also not too far from Piedmont Hospital and the Shepherd Center. One of the only obvious downfalls about this community is that sometimes traffic gets really bad.
