Welcome to Pine Hills
Up until the 1950s, Pine Hills was a large dairy farm. Today, it is one of Atlanta’s most unique neighborhoods. What makes it so special? In part, the fact that it is located in both Fulton and DeKalb Counties, which means two different school districts, two types of property taxes, and two different city names. Each has its own advantages. Despite the split, Pine Hills is a tight-knit community. On any given day, you might bump into neighbors at the community pool or a block party.
The central location of Pine Hills makes it a commuter’s dream. Whether you work in Brookhaven, Buckhead, or Midtown, you are only just minutes away. You are also just minutes from the Lenox and Buckhead MARTA stations and major roadways like I-85 and Georgia 400.
