The city of Atlanta has the eleventh largest urban population in the United States. In Atlanta’s ten county metropolitan areas, many towns and communities contribute to its unique character and size. One of the finest of these is the city of Sandy Springs.

Sandy Springs is located to the north of downtown Atlanta and just southeast of the city of Roswell. A part of Sandy Springs lies inside Atlanta’s perimeter highway (Interstate 285) and part lies outside I-285. Originally an unincorporated community, Sandy Springs became a city in December of 2005 and is now the sixth largest in the state of Georgia. Recently named by Portfolio.com as the ninth most affluent area in the United States, Sandy Springs households have a median income of $71,592 with a little over 17 percent of its households earning $200,000 or more.
In addition to proximity to excellent business services, some of the finest medical centers in the Southeast and vital shopping centers and malls, Sandy Springs offers its resident’s public transportation through bus service and the MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) rail line. Sandy Springs is also convenient to GA 400 and I-285 as well as I-75. Residents are within a thirty minute commute of employers in Atlanta, Marietta and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Residents love the combination of all the urban conveniences and quick access to downtown Atlanta while living in lovely suburban neighborhoods with privacy plus beautiful trees and landscaping.
Sandy Springs offers a wealth of amenities for the city’s residents including:
- Abernathy Arts Center: classes and workshops; exhibits

Aberdeen Forest is a lovely wooded neighborhood of approximately 100 homes that were built in the 1960’s. Like many older metro Atlanta neighborhoods, there have been some older homes removed and newer, larger custom homes built on the same lot in their place. This is a stable neighborhood of long-term residents. Subdivision amenities include:
- Underground utilities
- Home Owners Association: keeps residents informed on zoning and road construction information, garden club news and social functions. They also host Christmas and Fourth of July parties.
- High Point Elementary School, Ridgeview Charter Middle School and Riverwood Charter International High School, the number one ranked high school in Fulton County.
The median list price of homes offered for sale in this neighborhood is $680,000. Homes for sale in Aberdeen Forest currently range from $449,000 to $1,199,000,
Aberdeen residents love their neighborhood because it is quiet and private enough to be a great place to take daily walks, yet so close to Perimeter Mall, GA 400 and I-285 they can get to major shopping and medical facilities quickly. The schools are excellent and Sandy Springs offers a great community life for those who wish to get involved.
