Welcome to Dunwoody

A pleasantly peaceful suburb set apart from the hectic fray of Atlanta.

The city of Dunwoody incorporated in 2008, putting its neighborhood vision into action with smart planning. The lower portion, which includes part of the busy Perimeter commercial area, is laden with high-rise office buildings, shopping malls, retail complexes, and hospitals. Meanwhile, the community is close to major highway routes and one of the few suburbs with commuter train service.

Tucked in the northernmost corner of Dekalb County, Dunwoody attracts those craving a traditional suburban lifestyle yet offers proximity to corporate business and commerce.

What to Expect

Country clubs to the north, high-rise business center at the southern edge, and a quaint village crossing in the middle.

The massive sprawl of Atlanta has incited intense community spirit within each individual neighborhood as residents come together to carve out their local niche. Dunwoody excels at such efforts, most notably supporting the active preservation of the historic farmhouse properties at its center.

The Lifestyle

A relaxed and comparatively quiet community with ample retail and commercial presence.

Though growing rapidly, Dunwoody remains serene partially due to city ordinances. Upon initial incorporation, the city mandated greenspace expansion and improvement, and also curtailed high-density housing permits. This is a neighborhood committed to its wide sidewalks, popular parks, and tight-knit focus. Dunwoody also claims bragging rights as one of the few Atlanta suburbs with a solid MARTA train line presence; the North Springs Station easily takes commuters from a quiet residential haven through the central corridor of the city and down to the airport with stops all along the way.

Unexpected Appeal

Cosmopolitan touches enlivening quiet suburbs.

Here in Dunwoody, living in a peaceful suburb does not preclude excitement or sophistication. On the contrary, residents enjoy urban respites all around town and innovative venues find enthusiastic patrons upon striking new ground in the area.

The Market

All manner of housing options to be found.

For convenience, atmosphere, amenities, and square footage, Dunwoody still presents opportunity. While many pricey luxury properties shine, there are also hidden, budget-friendly gems and fixer-uppers waiting for their big moment.

You'll Fall in Love With

Retro suburban appeal balanced with urban sensibilities.

Want to tailgate at the high school football game Friday night, zip into town for Saturday night dinner and a show, spend Sunday afternoon at the park, then head to the airport to catch a business flight on Monday morning? A Dunwoody address makes that agenda simple.
