Buckhead is an affluent district of Atlanta, located in the northern section of the city. The district is a major commercial and financial center of the Southeast United States, and it is the third-largest business district in Atlanta, behind Downtown and Midtown. Highrise office buildings, hotels, and condominiums form a highly urbanized core along Peachtree Road, and surrounding this dense core are Buckhead’s residential neighborhoods, which feature large single-family homes situated among dense forests and rolling hills. Buckhead comprises most of Atlanta’s northern neighborhoods, with 43 different communities calling Buckhead home. The area is known as an opulent, ultra-chic district of Atlanta, with the western and northern neighborhoods being virtually unrivaled in the Southeast.
