People who live and work in the multi-county metropolitan Atlanta area quickly learn the importance of the Interstate 285 highway as a line of demarcation around the city known as the “perimeter”. People choose to live inside or outside the perimeter based on real estate prices, commutes to work and a variety of demographics. People who want to live in neighboring Sandy Springs are fortunate that their favorite city has spread both north and south of I-285, thus offering its residents both perimeter options.
Real Estate in Brookhaven Estates
After the metropolitan Atlanta community of Sandy Springs chose to incorporate as its own city in 2005, it grew until today it is the sixth largest in Georgia. The city center and its government offices, as well as most of it parks and its amenities are located outside the perimeter (north of I-285) and west of Highway GA 400, but portions of the city, a few parks and a golf course lie inside of the perimeter very close to the recently formed town of Brookhaven and the Buckhead section of Atlanta.
Sandy Springs is a wealthy community with vital shopping centers and malls, a great variety of businesses and services, excellent hospitals with top rated medical services and great parks/ recreation opportunities. The Sandy Springs Tennis Center offers 24 lighted courts while the Abernathy Arts Center offers lessons, workshops and exhibits. Mass transit is available through bus service and the MARTA rail line into Atlanta. While the median household income is already a respectable $71,592, more than 17 percent of its households earn close to $200,000 or more. The residents here love their city because it combines urban conveniences and sophistication with private neighborhoods and good schools for a very comfortable family life.
