Just Listed :: Gorgeous Traditional in Brookhaven Gardens!

Monday, February 13th, 2012

 

Brookhaven Gardens is a small neighborhood originally constructed in the late 1990’s in the incredibly popular and fast growing Brookhaven community of unincorporated DeKalb County. This quiet enclave of homes is a refreshing setting within 1 mile of the lights, cameras and action of Buckhead. With a great location and reduced taxes, you get the best of both worlds. Highlights of the neighborhood include an active Homeowners Association, which acts independently and also participates within the larger Brookhaven Fields Civic Association. Each year in the fall, Brookhaven Gardens organizes a block party filled with great pot luck and catered food, a bouncy castle, pony rides, visits from the local police and fire departments giving tours of police cars and fire engines, football on TV, and other surprises. Perhaps one of Brookhaven Gardens’ best features is also the best kept secret of the area, a small fountain filled pond, home to at least 10 beautiful and friendly ducks. Neighbors sometimes pause for a humorous duck crossing in the street. The community is built around the pond, and a waterfront gazebo is a welcoming spot for visitors to feed the ducks or enjoy the sounds of the fountain.
