West Athens

Whether you’re a first time homebuyer, need more space, or want a home with community amenities, West Athens may be the right area for you. Popular among buyers who grow out of their smaller, in-town homes, West Athens offers larger lots, homes with more square footage, and a variety of price points. 

The area bound between Hawthorne Avenue, Athens Perimeter and Atlanta Highway includes the Forest Heights community, an established neighborhood desirable among first time homebuyers. Forest Heights homes are highly sought after for their affordability and close proximity to in-town conveniences.

Located west of the Middle Oconee River and south of Atlanta Highway is the popular Timothy Road area. This high-growth corridor offers a mix of older and newer construction homes that tend to provide more peace, privacy and space to spread out compared to in-town neighborhoods. Conveniently located near a variety of restaurants, including local favorites Agua Linda and DePalmas, local and big box retailers, with easy access to Athens Academy and Timothy Road Elementary.
