Inman Park is one of Atlanta’s oldest and most beloved neighborhoods. Founded in the 1880s and now part of the Historic Districts of Atlanta, properties here overflow with Southern charm. Renovations of the local Victorian-style
architecture have created stylish single family homes, which cost around $536,100 on average. To rent housing options like these, expect the following prices:
- One bedroom: $1,600 – $2,000
- Two bedroom: $2,200 – $3,200
- Three bedroom: $3,000 – $4,500
Lofts in historic structures like the landmark Sears building (now the Flats at Ponce City Market), are highly coveted, so expect to pay prices similar to those Downtown. These luxury apartments come with top-rated amenities like hardwood floors, rooftop terraces and exposed brick for an industrial feel. Monthly rent for high-end options like these typically ranges from $1,600 to $2,500. Slightly cheaper options are available for between $1,100 and $1,300 for smaller apartments with fewer amenities or those in newer, but equally chic complexes.
Established as Atlanta’s first garden suburb, Inman Park is considered one of the most walkable neighborhoods in the city. The Inman Park Tree Watch works throughout the year to cultivate and protect an urban forest that surrounds the streets and homes. Cobblestone pathways lead through foliage and flowers, creating a picturesque community for residents and visitors to appreciate. Both the Blue and Green MARTA lines are nearby for those who want to travel into Downtown as well.
The East Side Trail of the Atlanta BeltLine runs through the neighborhood, within walking distance of most apartments. This old railroad corridor now serves as a resource for outdoor enthusiasts, bikers, joggers and families to enjoy the sunny weather.
The renovated buildings have brought small businesses to the area in the form of eclectic shops and restaurants of all kinds. This has turned Inman Park into one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the city, as well as one of the best spots for food enthusiasts. Quaint boutiques, yoga studios and cafés like Inman Perk Coffee, are common hangouts. The historic buildings like old factories and some of the Victorian-style houses have become specialty markets and bars, such as the Wrecking Bar Brewpub.
One of the most popular locations for shopping and dining in Inman Park is the Krog Street Market. This property was built in the 1920’s as a cast-iron stove factory, which then became a film studio owned by director and actor Tyler Perry. Now, this eclectic building houses market stalls with fresh produce and spices, as well as specialty shops like Mama Handmade Bath and Body, which sells candles and body care products. Repeatedly voted one of the best food halls in the country, visitors find an authentic and unique culinary experience at restaurants like Fred’s Meat & Bread and The Little Tart Bakeshop.
