Collier Heights is a well known sizeable neighborhood, only a ten-minute drive away from downtown Atlanta. The community is a collection of beautiful mix-and-match houses with a woodland vibe that runs throughout due to the large amounts of trees and vegetation that are scattered around it.
The neighborhood stays sunny almost all year round due to the subtropical location and climate of Atlanta. This means that during the short periods of winter when the trees have shed their golden and red leaves, the temperature stays fairly mild. Spring brings vibrant greens and the animals come out to play with deer and squirrels beginning to be spotted in and among the woodlands.
Collier Heights' close proximity to the center of downtown Atlanta means that there are plenty of puppy-friendly amenities just a short drive away. The modern urban city setting means that many cafes allow you to bring your pets to have a coffee with you.
The landscape of Collier Heights is mostly hilly with roads that wind around steep bends that climb further up towards the tops of the neighborhood. This means that the neighborhood does not take on the classic American style block system, but holds a unique pattern to the roads, adding to the quirkiness of the community. These steep inclines are due to Atlanta’s proximity to the Appalachian Mountains and this is what influences the landscape below.
The neighborhood is a great example of a community that has nicely balanced urban with rural. The homes are set in between woodlands that consist of tall trees and low lying vegetation. The natural essence of the area is epitomized through Sandy Creek that runs behind the houses and along walking paths for you to enjoy. This is complemented by the nicely mowed lawns and well-kept streets of Collier Heights, creating a scenic and charming suburban landscape.
