"The Epitome of Resilience"

With homes built between the late 1950s and early 1970s, Westwood Terrace is a mature and settled community. It is encircled by Beecher Street, Cascade Road, Benjamin E Mays Dr and Peyton Rd, SW, with I-20 running northeast of its perimeter. Westwood Terrace is sister to Beecher and Venetian Hills communities and shares many of the area parks and recreational facilities, but is particularly proud to be near the McGhee Tennis Center and the John A. White Golf Course.

Several short intersecting streets comprise Westwood Terrace, making it a small and intimate community where homes are modestly priced in the mid-$90K and below. Connally Elementary, International Preparatory Institute, Beecher Hills Elementary, Kipp Strive Academy, Nsoromma, Kindezi Charter, Turner Middle, Brown Middle, West End Academy, Washington High, Douglass High School, Greater Atlanta Adventist Academy and Best Academy -Carson make up the community’s robust school district.

Like other mellowing communities in surrounding areas, the people are what make Westwood Terrace special. You won’t find extravagant amenities, but you will find homeowners who take pride in preserving the neighborhood and appreciate the significance of being one of Atlanta’s established and vested communities.
