Buckhead Village is a hotspot for shopping, dining and entertainment. The landmark Atlanta destination is located in the vibrant Peachtree Road corridor and is the home to Modera Buckhead — a 21-story high-rise featuring one-, two- and three-bedroom apartment homes and ground-floor retail.
Modera Buckhead’s contemporary amenities were created for residents to enjoy from sunrise to sunset. Eighth-floor amenities — including the Zen yoga and Pilates studio, spa lounge and sauna room, HIIT-inspired fitness studio, Starbucks, and pool with downtown views — were strategically designed within steps of one another, making it easy to transition to each space. Additional daytime options include a game room and expansive rooftop dog park, and when the sun goes down, a gourmet outdoor kitchen, eighth-floor movie lawn, sunset bar and rooftop wine-tasting lounge provide the ultimate evening experience before enjoying the ground-floor retail space for a bite to eat.
Homes are outfitted with sustainable wood plank-style flooring, ceramic tile backsplashes, expansive windows with roller shades, chef-inspired kitchens with gas cooktops and modern light fixtures. Select homes also offer designer bathrooms with LED backlit mirrors, soaking tubs, soaring nine-foot ceilings and green space views. Smart living is included in all homes, including a key fob entry system and USB outlets.
The community, which includes 399 apartment homes above 21,000 square feet of premier ground-floor retail space, boasts a 93 Walk Score, making it one of the most walkable areas in the city. Modera Buckhead is also within minutes of Chastain Park and Amphitheatre, which includes a variety of recreational activities and outdoor entertainment. Frankie Allen Park is also nearby and offers tennis courts, picnic and grilling areas, as well as dog-friendly trails for the pet-friendly community.
