South of I-85 and just inside the Perimeter, Sagamore Hills and Oak Grove in DeKalb
County have quietly cultivated an unspoiled family-friendly community. Parks, large yards, activities for children and award-winning schools draw young families to the area, but the sense of community and amenities for all ages keeps them there long after the children have grown. With easy access to Atlanta, Decatur, Druid Hills, Emory and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, this area is a commuter’s dream. Largely developed in the mid-20th century, homes here are nestled among mature trees on large lots. Beautifully maintained original 1950s and 1960s brick ranches are situated side-by-side with newer, traditional homes.
