"Beautiful country homes"

Sylvan Hills is an up-and-coming neighborhood located in Southwest Atlanta (not too far from the West End area). It is only about 15 minutes from Midtown, and about 12 minutes from Downtown Atlanta. It is just minutes away from Interstate 75/85. This gives people residing here easy access to several local attractions.

The Sylvan Hills neighborhood is comprised of beautiful older country-style homes that were mostly built after World War II, in the early 1950’s through the late 1960’s. Some of the houses in this area have been well taken care of; while others have been a little neglected.
Several reconstructive initiatives have gone forth, making this area pretty desirable for investors as well as homebuyers. I would say that this neighborhood might be a perfect option for first-time homebuyers because cost of living in fairly reasonable (which is awesome because many of the homes are pretty large). In addition, this neighborhood is especially attractive because it is in fairly close proximity to the Grant Park neighborhood.

Sylvan Hills is accessible by public transportation, and nearby attractions include Perkerson Park and Sylvan Circle Playlot. Atlanta Metropolitan College and Atlanta Technical College are both within a 1 mile radius of this neighborhood. In addition the Atlanta University Center (AUC) is only minutes away. This occasionally attracts local students to rent affordable rehab houses in the area.
