Asa Candler: Made his cash selling Coca-Cola. Made his legacy donating the land for Candler Park. Makes me jealous with that perfect shock of white hair.
What’s the deal with Candler Park?
Candler Park is a 55 acre city park that features a 9 hole golf course, a swimming pool, a football/soccer field, a basketball court, tennis courts, and a playground.
The neighborhood is entirely in the DeKalb County side of the city, and it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
If you’re looking for Craftsman bungalows, you’ll be hard pressed to find a neighborhood that shows off the style quite like Candler Park. If you’re interested in seeing both a smattering of bungalows as well as some modern lofts, check out the Candler Park Tour of Homes. Or of course, you could just give me a call and I could help you buy one of them.

Any Candler Park recommendations?
I really dig this 3 bedroom at 452 Hillcrest Avenue. Custom built in 1997, it features a huge landscaped yard, a basement and a two car garage- three features that you won’t often find in the more traditional, old-school Candler Park classics. A little bit of old, a little bit of new- who can’t behind that sort of compromise? Click here to view the entire listing.
