Brookhaven, GA: Apartments and Real Estate
Brookhaven, Georgia, has a wide range of homes to choose from, from million-dollar mansions to modest townhomes. In this affluent community, prices for both rent and real estate will be higher than in other parts of the Atlanta metro area.
Originally built as a country club community, Brookhaven's premier homes are the mansions and stately houses that surround the Capital City Club, which was formed in 1910 and has evolved over the years as the community has grown. In this part of town you'll find mansions and estates often reaching a $3 million price tag, if you want to be near the golf course. If your home purchasing budget is more modest, you can find beautiful restored bungalows and midcentury modern ranchers ranging from around $200,000 (you may need to do some updating or repairs) on up. Popular neighborhoods include Ashford Park, Brittany, Cambridge Park and Hampton Hall.
If you're in the market for a condominium or townhome, you can occasionally find something small for around $100,000, but for a unit in a gated community with amenities such as a swimming pool and controlled access, expect to pay upwards of $400,000. Again, the sky is the limit; luxury condos and townhomes can be found for more than $1 million.
If you're looking for an apartment in Brookhaven, check out larger, newer communities, such as Town: Brookhaven, a large multi-use complex with about half a million square feet of retail space and two luxury apartment communities. The Goodwin has club amenities including a pool, meeting room and two-story health and fitness center. Unit sizes range from studio to two bedrooms and rent from $790 to about $1,640 monthly. Windsor at Brookhaven offers studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments ranging from $1,100 to $2,675 per month. Amenities include a pool with sundeck, courtyard garden with grills and patio seating, a clubroom with billiards and a lounge area, a fitness center and controlled access garage parking for some units.
Also nearby is Aventine at Ashford Apartments on Dunwoody Road Northeast, a gated community with studio, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments. Monthly rent is $670 to $1,200 per month, and amenities include a pool with outdoor kitchen, tennis court, free poolside WiFi, and private garages with remote control access for some units.
There are many apartment complexes along the Buford Highway corridor, but a good number of them have fallen into disrepair. Brookhaven's city government recently stepped up its apartment inspection program, and through community development block grants will provide money to renovate some properties.
