LaVista Park may have bumped Northcrest as my favorite atomic neighborhood in Atlanta. Why? Location, location, location! While Northcrest has more Brady Bunch-style ranches per block, it’s up in the sleepy suburb of Doraville. LaVista Park, sandwiched between busy Briarcliff and Cheshire Bridge Roads, is a short drive or bike ride to some of the best restaurants, shops, and parks in central Atlanta. Here are 8 midcentury and contemporary abodes that caught my eye on an afternoon drive. All photos were taken by me while standing on public property.

Beyond those striking 60s rooflines and expansive windows, the next best trait of LaVista Park is house pride. The owners are obviously modernism fans who relish creating era-appropriate curb appeal. It’s not easy shooting this ‘hood on a sunny day, because the residents are all outside with tools in their hands! Do you have a favorite LVP home that I missed? Tell me about it in the comments.

Fantastic finds! Love that adorable one pictured first the most. We love our home, but are the sore thumb – we are the only MCM among all the cute brick ranchers. Love the pride this ‘hood obviously has!
Thanks for your comment, Aletha! Popped over to your site — your kitchen is fabulous!
These houses are lovely. The first one has me wanting to paint our door lime green!
I know, Becky! I’m not even a fan of chartreuse, but it looks fantastic against pale gray and white.
My favorite part is that some of them you can tell are completely original and others are new builds, but they all fit together. #1 and #5 are easily my favorites.
Thanks for chiming in, Miss Meghan! I agree — the development in this ‘hood is respectful of the era, for the most part.
