About Brookhaven

1Brookhaven is an affluent community located just northeast of Buckhead, south of Dunwoody and west of Chamblee. Brookhaven became its own city in December of 2012, and has seen a boom in activity over the past few years as many professionals seek a more affordable, laidback alternative to neighboring Buckhead, without giving up many of the benefits. Its prime location offers residents a sought after mix of urban and suburban lifestyles. 

Brookhaven residents enjoy a true sense of community that comes with the more ‘neighborhood’ setting.  The neighborhood hosts numerous festivals and fundraisers throughout the year that bring the community closer together. Quality elementary schools, close proximity to some of Atlanta’s top private schools, and several great parks for all kinds of recreation make this the perfect place to call home. Golf lovers rejoice as Brookhaven is home to two of the city’s oldest and most prestigious country clubs. The stunning Capital City Country Club is nestled in Historic Brookhaven and the exclusive Peachtree Golf Club is just up the street.

Brookhaven is bordered by three major highways, boasts its own MARTA station and is just minutes from Buckhead’s business and commercial districts which make commuting a breeze!
