If you’re looking for a home outside the hustle-and-bustle of Savannah, you may have come across the Buckhead neighborhoods in Richmond Hill, Georgia. They might all seem like one giant area, but each of these four neighborhoods has a unique personality.
Breaking It Down
The original of the group is simply named Buckhead. This neighborhood’s 272 acres is divided into seven subdivisions and has a road that links it to Buckhead North, which has a similar style and layout. Also linked to Buckhead through an inner road, although on the opposite side, is Buckhead South. That may be the formal name of this neighborhood, but the signs outside the area are titled either Keller Crossing or Tranquilla Hall. Lastly, there’s Buckhead East. This is the most recent addition to the Buckhead family. Unlike the rest, Buckhead East is not connected—rather it sits a few miles closer to the Richmond Hill city limits.
Despite the fact that all of these have their own name, these sister neighborhoods share similar traits that make living in them so great.
The Perks of Buckhead
They’re each just outside of the Richmond Hill city limits in a more suburban setting, yet they are a reasonable distance to all that Richmond Hill has to offer. They also have easy access to Savannah, booming Pooler, and the beaches that surround Savannah (like Tybee Island).
2. Stellar School District
The Bryan County school district is split in two, and Richmond Hill is located in South Bryan County. These are some of the best public schools in the Savannah area. The schools include one primary school, three elementary schools, a middle school, and a high school. McAllister Elementary School is located within walking distance to Buckhead East.
3. Family Friendly Environment
These neighborhoods are a great place to raise a family. The houses range in size, so there’s definitely the perfect fit every family, and the yards are great for playing outside when the weather’s nice (which is often!). When a family decides to grow their roots in Richmond Hill, they tend to stay, which is a good marker for not only the welcoming, friendly atmosphere of these neighborhoods, but also of the amenities that they have to offer.
4. Parks and Pools
Each of the neighborhoods have large parks and public pools (for residents only). For example, Buckhead has a fenced-in pool, community room, gated basketball courts, baseball/soccer fields, a playground, walking paths throughout the majority of the subdivisions, and a tennis court.
5. Homeowners Association
These HOAs care about their little communities and help keep the neighborhoods safe and clean. They also put out electronic newsletters to help residents stay up-to-date on neighborhood festivities.
6. The View
All of the neighborhoods have retained that quaint Southern charm with their looming live oak trees, and Buckhead also has the views of Savannah’s beautiful marshes. Speaking of marshes, for boat owners, the Buckhead family is also within driving distance to the Fort McAllister marina, a popular launching pad to explore the local waters.
7. Kid Friendly Town
In addition to the school system in Richmond Hill, there are also a variety of activities for kids to get involved in all-year long.
