Welcome to West Athens

With several neighborhoods, various home styles, and a wide array of lot sizes, the Westside is one of the Athens most popular areas to call home. Uniquely located on the edge of the city, the Westside is especially perfect for anyone who wants the convenience of “in-town” living while still being able to hop on Loop 10, HWY 78 or HWY 316 for an out of town commute. Residents love being close to all of their favorite shopping, restaurants and award winning schools such as Timothy Road Elementary & Oglethorpe, Athens only school with a Spanish emersion program.
 
One of Athens’ hidden gems, Ben Burton Park, is a favorite among Westside residents for hiking, dog walking, and easy river. Highly sought-after neighborhoods such as Forrest Heights, Kingswood, and Homewood Hills are full of families who desire the comfort of a traditional neighborhood with large lots and community minded neighbors. Many residents join the Hampton Heights Neighborhood Pool to meet neighbors and have a place for their children to meet lifelong friendships and memories. With most homes being only a short ride to Five PointsNormaltownUGA Campus, and Downtown, the Westside truly is close to everything Classic City has to offer!
