Situated in the southwest section of the City of Decatur, Oakhurst is a delightful Atlanta neighborhood that embodies its motto perfectly: “small-town atmosphere with big-city access.” Boasting a unique blend of community spirit, historic charm, and urban convenience, Oakhurst has carved out a distinct identity that sets it apart within the larger metropolitan landscape.

One of Oakhurst’s most charming features is its streetscape, a picturesque tableau of ornate Arts and Crafts bungalows and authentic Craftsman style homes. Each architectural gem reflects the rich history and character of the neighborhood, providing a walkable tour of the area’s evolution. The streets, lined with sidewalks perfect for strolling, are complemented by the shade of towering, century-old trees that add a sense of timelessness and tranquility to the neighborhood.

The community spirit in Oakhurst is palpable. Many residents have lived here their entire lives, while others are drawn to the neighborhood for its award-winning elementary schools. This blend of lifelong locals and new families contributes to Oakhurst’s vibrant and welcoming atmosphere.

Oakhurst’s appeal extends beyond its residential charm, with quaint parks providing peaceful green spaces for residents to enjoy. These spaces offer a serene respite from city life and an opportunity for community interaction, further strengthening the neighborhood’s small-town appeal.

Yet, while Oakhurst may embody a small-town atmosphere, it certainly doesn’t lack in big-city access. Its strategic location within Decatur allows residents to enjoy the convenience of urban living, with easy access to shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. The neighborhood’s proximity to Atlanta’s thriving downtown offers a wide array of recreational and professional opportunities while maintaining Oakhurst’s distinct sense of community and tranquility.

Community events like the Oakhurst Arts & Music Festival and the Oakhurst Porchfest highlight the neighborhood’s affinity for arts and culture, and are testament to the strong sense of community and camaraderie among its residents.

In essence, Oakhurst is more than just a neighborhood; it’s a community that cherishes its history, celebrates its present, and looks forward to its future. With its charming homes, community spirit, excellent schools, verdant parks, and proximity to urban amenities, Oakhurst truly offers its residents the best of both worlds – the allure of a small-town atmosphere coupled with the excitement and convenience of big-city access.
