"So much nature"

Westover Plantation is a quiet community located a short drive north of downtown Atlanta. Situated between Moores Mill road and Defoors Ferry road, Westover is the quintessential middle class neighborhood. Perhaps, the amenity that I love the most about this area is its proximity to the Chattahoochee River. Westover Plantation practically sits on the “Hooch” and during the summer months this is a favorite location for nature lovers to kayak, fly fish, hike or even feed local geese. Houses in this area are practically hidden due to Atlanta’s measures to preserve nature in this area. Entering Westover feels as if you are entering some distant lake front community.

Cross Creek golf course is also located near Westover. Golf lovers can enjoy an afternoon of a round of golf at this affordable public course. The Westover Plantation community has more family oriented areas than some of its Buckhead counterparts. It is close enough to the city to enjoy its lively night light, and yet far away enough to escape the night time sounds. This appears to be true the further Northwest you travel. After all, Westover Plantation is the last stop in Buckhead before the Vinings! If you can afford real estate in this area, I would suggest moving here. This place has the perfect balance of city life.
