"Formally Attired"

Tuxedo Park—the name alone connotes quality, elegance and affluence. An audible gasp is the normal response when first touring this posh community. Distinguished estate homes are outfitted to the finest detail. Many of them dating back to the 1930s have been fully restored to masterpiece perfection.

Personally, I don’t know of many other communities with home sales consistently commanding double-digit million dollar prices. That’s why viewing Tuxedo Park is like peering into a whole new world—one that leaves you mystified and mesmerized. One that makes you recalibrate your compass and rethink your destiny (well at least it did for me!).

Shopping, entertainment, recreation and education are designed through the filter of excellence. Convenient to Buckhead, Lenox and Phipps Plaza, Tuxedo Park was planned and measured for a precise fit in every category.

Some of Georgia’s most preeminent schools reside in the Tuxedo Park community, including:

The Heiskell School
Pace Academy
The Galloway School
Smith Elementary School
Jackson Elementary School
Sutton Middle School
Atlanta Girls School
Holy Spirit Preparatory School
North Atlanta High School

Truly a landmark community, Tuxedo Park offers timeless architecture, spectacular gardens and every amenity imaginable for a neighborhood of this caliber.
Pros
  • Stately Homes

"Everyone secretly wishes they could live here"

Tuxedo Park is essentially one of the most luxurious neighborhoods in all of Buckhead. It is located just minutes away from I-75 and is definitely the place to be if you are wealthy enough to afford to live here. Although there are a few lower priced homes around the $500,000 area, you will notice that many of the homes are priced for those who can easily afford to spend $3 million dollars or so without any hesitations. Tuxedo Road, Woodhaven Road NW and the prestigious West Paces Ferry Road, are just a few popular streets in the area.

This neighborhood’s elaborate estates, with acres of lush green land, give it a distinct unforgettable atmosphere. Even if you cannot afford to live here, you should still take a drive through it, just to make yourself feel ritzy all over. Although the Tuxedo Park is mostly a residential area, it is surprisingly close to the social scene in Buckhead. Lenox Mall and Phipps Plaza are only about 8 minutes away, which is great if you are a shopaholic.

There are a plethora of upscale dining options to choose from if you are in the area. The Cheesecake Factory and the Atlanta Fish Market are two of my favorites; they are just minutes away from Tuxedo Park. All in all, this seems like the perfect place to live (if there is such a thing).

"Buttoned up, affluent living"

Tuxedo Park is an appropriate name for this centrally located yet secluded part of the high-end residential home district.

It’s winding and hilly roads are smooth as a tux's satin lapel. The neighborhood feels formal, if not marginally semi-formal, with its huge, multi-million dollar estate homes, tailored lawns and well- appointed gardens, and of course, its exclusive, high-society residents. Tuxedo Park is buttoned in by its equally exclusive sister regions of Buckhead, West Paces and East Paces communities. Like a tuxedo, this neighborhood is a staple in the vibrant, social scene of affluent Atlanta.

Every time my mother flies into Atlanta to visit, she begs me for a lazy 15 mile per hour joyride around Tuxedo Park, so we can select our ‘future” dream homes, while trying to blend in with the other onlookers who too wish for the day to call Tuxedo Park home. After we exhaust the streets of this pristine place, we break for a local café, health food restaurant, boutique, salon or spa to savor another taste of the good life Tuxedo Park affords its residents.

It’s easy to refuel yourself after a hard day of gawking; this neighborhood is adjacent to whatever luxuries you want and crave!
