The southwestern section of Sandy Springs inside of I-285 is in the 30327 zip code. 30327 also includes the western half of Buckhead, and this southern section of Sandy Springs connects seamlessly to neighborhoods like Mt Paran and Chastain.
The neighborhoods in this area of the city generally feature large lots and lots of forested areas. The hustle and bustle of Roswell Rd is just a couple of miles away, but you don’t have to go far inside I-285 to find quiet, well-established neighborhoods.
The Chattahoochee River offers great hiking and water activities. There are miles of hiking trails in the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area at Indian Trail, or you can rent a tube or a kayak and “shoot the Hooch” on a hot day.
We love the outdoor adventure along the Chattahoochee. Don’t miss the bamboo forest at the northeast end of the trail! We also love the varied styles of the beautiful large homes in the area.
Rush hour traffic on I-285 can make for a long commute from this area. The Northside Drive exit is close to the I-285/I-75 interchange. This area is prone to bottleneck traffic that slows to a crawl.
Much of this area is dominated by quiet neighborhoods with huge homes. You’ll find every style from modern to Mediterranean, but most are on a grand scale. There are also large condominium communities like One River Place, with several housing options and resort-style amenities..
30327 covers most of southwestern Sandy Springs, from Northside Drive to Lake Forest Drive.
