Collier Hills is named for the Collier family who once had an estate there and operated a gristmill named Collier’s Mill. Today, the Buckhead community has a wide variety of homes, including cottages built in the 1940s, contemporary homes built in the 1970s and 1980s and newly constructed single-family homes. The homes range in price from approximately $400,000 to $700,000, are located just north of Midtown and are decorated with gables, dormer windows, bay windows, tree-lined lots, patios, porches, and lovely landscaping. Collier Hills also includes some condominiums and apartments.
The community dates back to 1941 and is very popular with Piedmont Hospital doctors and nurses since most of the neighborhood is within walking distance of the hospital. Residents also enjoy proximity to some of the city’s best restaurants, shopping centers, fitness centers and three parks including Tanyard Creek, Ardmore, and Atlanta Memorial Park, which includes the Bobby Jones Golf Course & Park Conservancy and Bitsy Grant Tennis Center. The community is within a mile of The District at Howell Mill shopping center and also has excellent access to I-75, Peachtree Road and Northside Drive.
