Brookwood Hills is located near the heart of Atlanta, only a few miles away from the skyscrapers of its major business districts. It is connected by three entrances to Peachtree Road, and has no other outlet. Brookwood Hills is bordered roughly by Peachtree on the west, Interstate 85 on the south, the Norfolk Southern and MARTA tracks (just south of Peachtree Creek) to the north, and Clear Creek to the east.
The Brookwood neighborhood, for which Brookwood Hills was named, is located immediately southwest of the southern tip of Brookwood Hills. This is in turn immediately north of the major freeway interchange called the “Brookwood split”, which joins I-75 to the northwest and I-85 to the northeast into the Downtown Connector to the south. Brookwood Hills is a charming and picturesque neighborhood on the National Register of Historic Places. The curving, tree-lined streets showcase a variety of enchanting homes, many built when Brookwood Hills was established in the 1920s. Its peaceful feeling is surprising, considering it is at the meeting point of Buckhead and Midtown.
