North Decatur Apartment Renter's Guide

What locals are saying

"Denominator, go Decatur, anticipate her / It's the great I am / Appreciate her, appreciate her / stand up and thank her." (--Sufjan Stevens, "Decatur")

This five-square-mile patch of land has much to appreciate, and anticipate. North Decatur, Georgia has been in development since the late-18th century. Possibly because of the myriad of different developers and the long time-frame they have had to rethink city plans, North Decatur is not a traditionally central-based town. There are actually three different commercial centers that are found more towards the outer edges of town, while residential areas fill the middle. If this makes perfect sense to you, then stand up and thank her.

Most of the housing in North Decatur are ranch homes built in the 1950s and 1960s

Houses and Apartments for Rent

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!

Neighborhoods in North Decatur

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.
