Officially opened for business in 2012, Brookhaven is a relatively new residential area. However, it comes attached to a fascinating heritage that goes all the way back to the indigenous Creek Indian settlements.
Brookhaven’s prestigious Historic District was originally developed in the early 20th century around a golf course, which is the reason for its inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places. (Other noteworthy Brookhaven communities include Ashford Park, Lynwood Park, and Drew Valley.) Brookhaven is also conveniently situated in western DeKalb County, so it’s just north of Atlanta itself.
The experience of living in Brookhaven is without a doubt a pleasant one. The area is well known for its incredible diversity, not only in regards to the people that live there, but the architecture, the local festivals, and the eclectic mix of businesses as well.
You won’t ever be at a loss for things to do in Brookhaven, either. Outdoorsy types will enjoy plenty of access to venues like the beautiful Peachtree Golf Club. Silver Lake is the place to be if you’re into birdwatching, jogging, or rowboats.
Plus, Brookhaven is very family-friendly. Check out Brookhaven Park for a pet-friendly location where you can enjoy sports, grilling, and access to a beautiful playground. Murphy Chandler Park – the largest park in the neighborhood — is also a must-visit, featuring over 130 acres of picnic area, wetlands, tennis courts, and more. Schools here are top notch, with options like Ashford Park Elementary and Montclair Elementary, or high learning options like Oglethorpe University.
Getting around Brookhaven is a simple process. Of course, it’s automobile friendly for those that prefer to drive their own cars. However, there are plenty of alternatives for those who would rather not drive or who are looking to live more eco-conscious lifestyles. The MARTA rail system is an excellent way to get around to numerous Atlanta area locations and suburbs, for instance. Brookhaven and the surrounding areas are also supported by ample bus service.
