If Midtown has Decatur, then Buckhead has Brookhaven.
The 30319 ZIP code stretches from I-85, all the way to the northern edge of the I-285 perimeter, but for all intents and purposes, Brookhaven is the mainstay of this region of the city.
First, there’s Brookhaven Village. It’s small and charming—a real blend of old-meets-new. There are some luxury condos lining the main thoroughfare, and some restaurants that are good enough (and hip enough) to dutifully draw visitors from other parts of the city, but a small deviation off Dresden Drive will yield some splendid homes that possess all the best qualities of historic Atlanta living.
Then, there’s Town Brookhaven. The definition of new urban, this planned community contains restaurants, boutique shopping, an ultra-luxe movie theater, and a couple of options for big box shopping should you be so inclined. The whole operation is anchored by a multitude of luxury condo living options, for everyone from young single professionals to families just starting out (you’ll find more than a few students, too, who attend nearby Oglethorpe University).
Golfers take note: there are two great clubs within this ZIP code: Peachtree Golf Club and Capital City Country Club both maintain full membership, consisting primarily of locals who live in the main portions of this area, as well as those who live in the luxurious mid-century homes that occupy so much of the northern end of this ZIP.
