East Lake

Internationally known for its golf history and present, I've been lucky enough to call East Lake my home since 1999. Its friendly neighbors, affordable housing and easy access to just about any intown destination won me over.

Golf may have put East Lake on the map, but the vibe is much more eclectic and pet-friendly than country club crowd.

Demand for homes in the area has skyrocketed as busy professionals are choosing to live closer to where they work, dine and play.  Many homes have been lovingly renovated and there are plenty of new construction options.  It's primarily residential, but you don't have far to go to find the latest casual dining options at Hosea and 2nd Ave., Kirkwood and Oakhurst Village.

Great MARTA train access at the East Lake Station that runs along College Ave. and provides free same-day parking.  It's roughly a 15-minute train ride into downtown during peak times, whereas driving the same distance could easily take three or four times that long.  East Lake is the easternmost of the 238 neighborhoods in the City of Atlanta. It is home to East Lake Golf Club, the site of PGA's annual Tour Championship, and lies mostly within the 30317 zip code.

Home to sought-after Fred A. Toomer Elementary and Drew Charter School schools.

You don't have to join the East Lake Golf Course to enjoy the sport.  The same grounds crew takes care of the public course directly across 2nd Ave., Charlie Yates public golf course.
