Haynes Manor, “Out Where the Hills Begin,” is how Atlanta jeweler and real estate developer Eugene V. Haynes marketed his 200 acre estate when he began selling it in 1929. Just one mile outside of the Atlanta city limits, Haynes envisioned Haynes Manor as “an address of social distinction” where kids could be free from the congested city streets of busy downtown Atlanta. Traditional manor houses are strategically placed amongst the rolling topography of Peachtree Battle Avenue and the streets that weave through the neighborhood on both sides. Its close proximity to public transportation, private academies and the pending additions of Atlanta Memorial Park and the Bobby Jones Golf Course on the site of the Battle of Peachtree Creek in 1864 made Haynes Manor a home section families could really identify with.
Today these are the same reasons why families move to Haynes Manor. Many of the homes in the neighborhood have been graciously restored and updated with today’s amenities, while others have been torn down and replaced with new homes. Home sites are generally a ½ acre or more with large front yards. Tree-lined streets and sidewalks are common throughout Haynes Manor, making it a very pedestrian friendly neighborhood. Sidewalks, bike lanes and the PATH lead to neighborhood highlights like Bobby Jones Golf Course, Bitsy Grant Tennis Center, Memorial Park and playground, E. Rivers Elementary School and nearby Peachtree Battle Shopping Center.
