Medlock Park - No Commute Emory Neighborhood
While Emory commuters from outside the Atlanta Perimeter are gathering their children and rushing to their cars, homeowners in placid Medlock Park are still snoozing, or enjoying a second cup of coffee.
As North Decatur Road, the main conduit to the Emory community (Emory Hospital, Emory University, Eggleston Children’s Hospital, the Center for Disease Control ) creeps with traffic, many Medlock Park residents walk, bike or catch an Emory Shuttle Bus to work in the area.
Medlock Park residents are also fortunate to have nearby shopping centers with grocery stores, restaurants and shops, including a new Walmart, the DeKalb Farmers Market and soon to open Sprouts Market. There is also a Medlock Park with walking trails and playgrounds in the area. It’s one of the most affordable and convenient neighborhoods in Atlanta, located less than 8 miles from downtown Atlanta and approximately 18-20 miles from Atlanta Hartsfield Airport.
During the past year, 26 homes have sold in the immediate Medlock Park area, ranging in price from $245,000 to $473,000 and averaging 25 days on the market. Medlock Park properties come on the market and go very quickly, often with multiple offers.
If you are fortunate to be a successful buyer in this desirable location, you too may enjoy a second cup of coffee while others are contemplating the car in front of them.
