Atlanta’s most famous and largest cluster of mid-century modern homes is found in the Northcrest neighborhood. Situated 13 miles northeast of midtown Atlanta near the Spaghetti Junction intersection of 285 and 85, this suburban oasis offers easy access to most of the metro area. Once you enter the quiet neighborhood you will be transported to a different place. The architecture, rolling terrain and mature trees remind many of west coast living. Lynnray Drive is a great example, especially the hilly stretch between Foxford Drive and Valleybluff Drive.
The neighborhood was developed by P&H Realty from the late 1950’s-1970’s as homes of the future and sold for around $30,000. Today well renovated homes easily go for over $400k and sell quickly. Northcrest is the easiest place to grab your own MCM dream home thanks to the large number of houses in the neighborhood.
