The East side of Athens is a favorite among first-time home buyers and buyers who want a little more yard and home for their money. More affordable than many other in-town options, the “eastside” allows buyers to get close to downtown and UGA while still watching their budget. Comprised of mostly mid-century and newer construction homes, this part of town affords larger homes with generous yards in established neighborhoods.

This area also benefits from close proximity to grocery stores, restaurants, schools, and the UGA School of Veterinary Medicine. It is the home to the impressive Southeast Clarke Park, which features the World Of Wonder playground, a skate park, dog park, tennis courts, soccer and athletic fields, nature trails and concession stands.
