We all know that these days, East Atlanta is best known for the Village itself...made up of the bars, shops and restaurants that hover around the Flat Shoals / Glenwood intersection just south of I20. There are some really great streets and homes in the neighborhood as well with everything from 1950s brick ranches to my favorite, the Craftsman bungalows, as well as the new construction that pops up here and there. The Argosy, seen below, really blew me away by it’s size alone and was a nice, new addition to the area. I also just read about a new motorbike shop for enthusiasts called Brother Moto opening behind the Flat Iron...you can visit their Facebook page here. This is another great example of the cool things going on in the EAV.
Delia's Chicken Sausage is always a solid bite of food on Moreland and if you have not been to Octopus yet, make that a priority for their Lobster Roll. The good people at Urban Cannibal will knock your socks off with a HUGE menu of healthy comfort food as well as a few sundries for purchase to avoid that trip to the Edgewood Kroger. The Earl has some of the best indie bands in town as well as a heck of a food menu...again, providing burgers and the like along with some vegetarian options. We take our cat to the East Atlanta Animal Clinic and the people there could not be any nicer; it's nice to give these local professionals your business while receiving quality service in return.
And when all else fails, just hit the Flat Iron and order some wings or their Cuban Sandwich...it is like no other you have had, I promise. Midway has one of the best patios in Atlanta for sipping great beer outside when the weather turns nice and their food is top notch...notice a theme her with the food and drink in the neighborhood?
Take a drive around the intown neighborhoods and see for yourself all of the dirt flying around and heavy equipment making tracks. The real estate market is alive and well and set up for a big 2015. These neighborhoods hold their value through recessions and the like; the people know their neighbors and look out for each other. They join neighborhood associations and communicate on neighborhood specific websites…I am one of them and I stand up for my neighborhood and my investment. It just feels good and right…doesn’t it?!
I mean, who wouldn't like to live in a neighborhood where you can walk to dinner or the library...the post office or the Farmer's Market...the book store or the flower shop. Click the text to search East Atlanta homes and let me know how I can help you find a great property near the Village.
