ATKINS PARK
A COVETED INTOWN GEM
Welcome to Atkins Park, Atlanta. This neighborhood is located in Atlanta’s Intown, at the southeast corner of Virginia-Highland. It’s lies west of Briarcliff Avenue and north of Ponce Avenue, and consists of a mere three streets: St. Louis Place, St. Charles Place and St. Augustine Place. It also covers a small sidewalk referred to as Malcolm’s Way, which is named after a prominent citizen of the neighborhood. Originally, Atkins Park was designed to provide simpler access to the streetcar station at Ponce. The land was first used as farmland, but began to develop further when businessman Edwin Wiley Grove purchased the land in 1902-1905. The area then began to take form as a streetcar suburb of Atlanta, linking to downtown through the so-called Nine-Mile Circle line. At first, the neighborhood was called St. Louis Park, but was later named Atkins Park after one of Mr. Grove’s dear family friends, politician John DeWitt Clinton Atkins. Part of Atkins Park has been a designated national historic place since 1982, and the surroundings truly tell the story of long gone times. Entering the beautifully ancient stone archways at St. Charles and St. Louis Streets, this little enclave reveals itself as a gorgeous example of a classical Atlanta development. Atkins Park features around one hundred homes in pristine shape and restored historic architecture, with styles like English Cottage Tudor, Georgian Revival and white-pillared Craftsman. Occasionally you’ll even come across a cobbled street that brings to mind old-time Europe. It’s fairly hard to find home for sale in this area, as most people are thoroughly invested in their real estate - something that’s clearly displayed by the well-kept front lawns and neat facades. Should you draw the lucky straw and find a property for sale, you’ll find that it will dig quite a hole in your pocket. Much of Atkins Park’s picturesque charm stems from the fact that it lacks commercial development, but on the other hand the neighborhood only encompasses a few tiny streets. Besides, full entertainment is merely steps away in the vibrant Virginia-Highland area. In addition, citizens of the neighborhood have access to the Atkins Park Restaurant, which has stayed put since the 1920s. It still looks very much the way it once did, with dark wood and dimmed lighting. Patrons here can huddle up in one of the cozy booths and enjoy wonderful food while reveling in the roaring 20s-ambience.
