Lake Claire is an intown neighborhood made up of 37 streets and 1,200 homes in northeastern Atlanta. This distinctive community is in a great location for intown living and dearly loved by its residents who are professionals, artists, families and empty nesters. Although it is an intown neighborhood, it feels like a suburban community far removed from the hustle and bustle of big city life.
The streets are hilly and full of lush mature trees. Homes in this close-knit neighborhood are craftsman bungalows, 50s cottages, exotic revivals and more modern designs. Lake Claire home styles vary significantly because for the most part, they were not designed in uniformity as the neighborhood was developed, but rather much of the neighborhood was sold off as empty lots, allowing owners to construct their own homes. Lake Claire is a charming neighborhood of well maintained homes and yards. In recent years, the community has grown in popularity and its real estate remains in high demand.
In relation to other intown neighborhoods Lake Claire is east of Candler Park, south of Druid Hills, west of Decatur and North of Kirkwood. This gives Lake Claire easy access to the commercial districts of these neighboring communities, particularly Candler Park. Also, residents are just minutes from Downtown and all that Atlanta has to offer.
Lake Claire has its own park at Lakeshore Drive near McLendon, which has a children’s playground, a tennis court and a large playing field. The “Lake Claire Neighbors” is an active neighborhood association that meets monthly to plan events, and work to preserve and further the Lake Claire community. Lake Claire is known to be a very active community full of friendly residents proud of their neighborhood.
