Garden hills is a beautifully unique neighborhood located in the super exclusive Buckhead area. This area is often referred to as an urban forest and is bordered by Delmont Drive, Brentwood Drive, Piedmont Road, East Wesley Road, Peachtree Road, and North Hills Drive.
One of the biggest reasons Garden Hills is unique is because of the way it was created. The neighborhood was designed in three seperate phases. The first of these phases was the Country Club section that includes everything from Rumson Road to North Hills Drive. Next, the area between Peachtree Road and Rumson Road was completed, and lastly the section between North Hills Drive and Piedmont Road.
