East Athens

A favorite among first-time home buyers and buyers who want a little more yard and home for their money.

Welcome to East Athens

The East side of Athens is a favorite among first-time home buyers and buyers who want a little more yard and home for their money. More affordable than many other in-town options, the “eastside” allows buyers to get close to downtown and UGA while still watching their budget. Comprised of mostly mid-century and newer construction homes, this part of town affords larger homes with generous yards in established neighborhoods. This area also benefits from close proximity to grocery stores, restaurants, schools, and the UGA School of Veterinary Medicine.
 
It is the home to the impressive Southeast Clarke Park, which features the World Of Wonder playground, a skate park, dog park, tennis courts, soccer and athletic fields, nature trails and concession stands. The East side’s laid back vibe lends itself to natural community and you will see all types of people enjoying the side walks as they make their way to restaurants and parks. Much of the East side also connects to the Athens transit giving people the option to leave their car at home as they commute. There is a wide variety of housing choices from new construction, apartment living, and family homes on large tree filled lots.
