In north Atlanta, Buckhead comprises about 28 square miles and more than 40 neighborhoods. Properties run the gamut from historic estates on charming residential streets to high-rise condominiums near luxe shopping and dining. The 30305 ZIP Code has just over 23,000 inhabitants and a median income of $98,506, according to census data. As the film community continues to decamp to Atlanta—$2. 7 billion was spent in Georgia in the fiscal year 2018 as a result of 4S5 movie and television productions taking place in the state—Buckhead has become a key player in the so-called Y’allywood movement.

Advice for the Buyer
Buckhead properties have been selling without even hitting the market, so having a good real-es tate agent is key. A master bedroom on the ground floor is a sought-after feature among buyers. Also desirable is a main-floor walkout backyard, because Atlanta ‘s sloping terrain often leads to backyards being accessed from the basement.
Event of the Year
Buckhead’s Swan House Ball, on April 27 this year, is one of Atlanta ‘s annual galas. It raises mon ey for Atlanta’s History Center and its Swan House, an iconic estate designed in 1928 by local architect Philip Trammell Shutze.
