Boulevard Neighborhood

Founded in the late 19th century, the Boulevard neighborhood became known as Athens’ first streetcar suburb. The ease and convenience of streetcar transportation caused suburban living to surge in popularity. Over the years, this beloved neighborhood has attracted a mix of residents that appreciate it not only for its convenient location but, more importantly, for its history, strong sense of community, and beautiful architecture.

From Pulaski to Pound and from Prince to the railroad track lies the Historic Boulevard neighborhood. This community is coveted by many for its close proximity to downtown Athens, Chase Street Elementary School, Piedmont Regional Hospital, The University of Georgia (UGA), award-winning Chase Street Elementary, as well as some of our favorite local restaurants including White Tiger Gourmet, Maepole, Heirloom, and Pulaski Heights BBQ

In addition to its convenient location, many are attracted to the neighborhood’s curb appeal and history. The tree-lined streets provide a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle and the perfect place for a walk, jog or stroll near to home. Considered a “front porch” neighborhood, Boulevard encompasses a variety of incredible home architecture including Greek Revival, Queen Anne, and Neoclassical styles, a welcome sight and reminder of the history this neighborhood encapsulates. 

Convenience and location are key with this newly listed contemporary home situated in the highly sought after Boulevard District.  A quick walk to Downtown Athens is made possible by direct access to a path which leads to the Leathers building; home to the local favorite, Pulaski Heights Barbeque and other businesses!   Furthermore, the house is convenient to Buvez, Jittery Joe's Roaster, Boulevard Neighborhood Park, and all that Normaltown/Boulevard have to offer, with new establishments in the making.
