Most of the housing in North Decatur are ranch homes built in the 1950s and 1960s. That's like the way-way back, before cable TV! If you are hoping to find a cool, modern condo or apartment, you are also in luck, since the town has been working on developing a few of these over the last couple of years. What this means for you as a renter is that the houses are large and established, while the smaller dwellings are newer and, well, smaller. They're still visible by the naked eye, of course.
You can find a beautiful 1- or 2-bedroom apartment in North Decatur for a really affordable monthly rate. A rental house will normally be a bit more isolated and spacious in terms of the interior as well as the lawn (beware of pesky grass stains). This will cost you a bit more per month, with the price range depending on the area you choose and, of course, whether or not the house is haunted. Just kidding!
Residents can find the amenities they need in one of three areas: the commercial district at Clairemont Road and North Decatur Road; the Toco Hills commercial center at North Druid Hills Road and Lavista Road; or the shopping centers at North Dekalb Mall in the northeast.
