History

Founded in the early 1900’s as a suburb of Atlanta, Virginia-Highland was accessible by a streetcar until 1947. At this time, most of the streetcar / trolley lines in Atlanta were discontinued. It’s named for the intersection of Virginia Avenue and North Highland Avenue. The center of a busy little commercial area that’s the heart of the neighborhood.

Like most Intown Atlanta neighborhoods, Virginia-Highland real estate suffered serious decline in the 1960 and 1970s. At that time, residents moved to Atlanta’s suburbs. Many single-family homes were turned into apartments and deteriorated. Crime in the neighborhood increased. Some businesses closed. Some were replaced by low-rent tenants. A few remained. Specifically, Atkins Park Restaurant and Moe’s and Joe’s stayed open. Both establishments are popular neighborhood landmarks today.

In the early 1970’s the Georgia Department of Transportation threatened to build a highway through Virginia-Highland. And the future of Virginia-Highland real estate values was in doubt. But a strange but wonderful thing happened. A group of neighbors got together and decided to fight back. And they prevailed! Preventing their down and out little neighborhood from being wiped off the map by the highway.

After it became clear the highway was not going to be built, people began to buy old homes. They fix them up and steadily the prices for Virginia-Highland homes for sale began to rise. Developers started to lease renovated commercial buildings “as is” at low rates. They encouraged new and unique businesses. And a truly distinct commercial district emerged. Today Virginia-Highland homes for sale are more pricey than ever. That’s to be expected as the neighborhood truly has it all.

Conclusion

People have absolutely loved living in Virginia-Highland for over thirty years. As such, Virginia-Highland homes for sale today come with substantial price tags. This is due to the convenient location, parks, charming homes and of course the thriving commercial areas with their boutiques and fine restaurants.
