Lake Claire/Candler Park

The Lake Claire and Candler Park neighborhoods are located in eastern Atlanta — west of Decatur and just south of Druid Hills.

Situated in Dekalb County, Lake Claire boasts more than 1,200 residences. Residents maintain a strong sense of community rooted in an area with a rich and diverse history.

Homes in Lake Claire range across many price points and styles — featuring cottages, bungalows, and revival style architectural homes. Similar to Lake Claire, homes in Candler Park vary between Victorian and Contemporary, perfect for professionals and artists alike. Both neighborhoods offer opportunities for remodeling and new construction.

Need a little fresh air? Candler Park’s namesake green space includes a nine-hole golf course, large multi-purpose sports field, courts for tennis and bascketball, as well as a playground. It joined the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. For more nature, grab your bike and take a ride along the winding multi-use Path trail that runs through nearby Freedom Park.

For shopping and dining, head over to the Little Five Points commercial district, which was designated by local alt-weekly Creative Loafing as the “bohemian center of the Southern United States.” Enjoy the famous Vortex Restaurant, two independent bookstores, numerous coffee houses, and the various other novelty and entertainment shops this area has to offer.
