atlanta real estate
Inman Park has the honor of being Atlanta’s first planned suburb. It was built to the delight of the city’s burgeoning elite at the turn of the 19th century and to this day remains one of Atlanta’s most coveted pieces of real estate. Inman Park is a walkable, markedly-Victorian neighborhood juxtaposed against the backdrop of nearby modern structures and highrises of the city. The neighborhood is classical in design from its well-landscaped parks, to its carefully-planned tree-lined streets, all the way to the generous property lots and of course, the predominant architecture that’s so hard to miss. Inman Park is home to the city’s forward-thinking and progressive crowd, with more and more young urban singles joining the professionals that populate the area. Between the lush greenspaces and colorful flora that surround you and the Victorian mansions that characterize the neighborhood, lovely Inman Park leaves little to the imagination and even less to be desired.

Inman Park’s Past
Planning for Atlanta’s first streetcar neighborhood first began in the 1890s and culminated in its completion in 1912 with the help of some of the city’s best architects. For years wealthy Inman Park residents conveniently traveled via streetcar to work in downtown while the neighborhood itself flourished. As automobiles gained widespread use, well-to-do families began moving further and further out into the suburbs, leading to Inman Park’s decline. It wasn’t until the 1970s that preservation and restoration efforts became an agenda for the community (the neighborhood was even added to National Register of Historic Places in 1973), thanks to a renewed reverence for an architectural aesthetic that had long become outdated.
Inman Park’s Present
Inman Park’s renaissance is aptly symbolized by the butterfly logo you’ll spot all over town. If you look closely you’ll see two faces outlined in the pattern of the butterfly’s wings, one face looking to the neighborhood’s past and the other looking toward the community’s future. The spirit of the neighborhood’s renewed life is celebrated on the last weekend of April at the annual Inman Park Festival and Tour of Homes. Considered by many to be Atlanta’s best street festival, this lively, crowd-drawing three-day event rightly showcases the neighbourhood’s unique character with a fun mix of costumes, performance art, live bands, an arts & crafts market and a festive street parade.
One of the newest additions to Inman Park worth checking out is Krog Street Market, a widely-acclaimed mixed-use “epicurean center” and
