What’s in a name?
Margaret Mitchell the author, wrote most of the Civil War Classic “Gone With the Wind” while residing in a boarding house (still standing) on Crescent Avenue at 10th Street in Mid-town Atlanta. Margaret Mitchell the neighborhood, began development in the last mid-century. Homes were built in the ranch style of the day on large lots. Many of these beauties remain, making Margaret Mitchell one of the best “mid-century modern architecture” viewing areas of Atlanta.
The neighborhood has changed in the past 60 years with the addition of traditional ranch style homes and more recently multi-level homes.
Margaret Mitchell is not incorporated but it has a strong and active Civic Association: https://www.mmca-atlanta.org
I first visited Margaret Mitchell last spring when my buyer wanted a home in the Brandon Elementary School area. Our search included homes that ranged from 2,000 square feet to more than 6,000 and prices from $300,000 to the multi-millions. My buyers chose a lovely newer construction home and have settled in with welcoming neighbors, easy access to I-75, and participation in the Margaret Mitchell Civic Association.
Atlanta is a feast for the senses! Our neighborhoods each add their own particular flavor! Where would you like to go next?
