Ansley Park is located just east of Midtown and west of Piedmont Park. When developed in 1905-1908, it was the first Atlanta suburban neighborhood designed for automobiles, featuring wide, winding roads rather than the grid pattern typical of older streetcar suburbs. Streets were planned like parkways with extensive landscaping. The neighborhood was largely completed by 1930 and covers 275 acres. It has been designated a Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places.
Edwin P. Ansley developed the neighborhood. It was marketed as an alternative for the city's elite to Inman Park, the most fashionable residential neighborhood in the city at the time. It was more fashionably located, astride Peachtree Street and adjacent to the city's largest public park.
Diverse in style and scale, the houses in the district represent a full range of eclectic and contemporary suburban architecture. These styles include Colonial, Federal, Neo-Classical, Italian Renaissance, Queen Anne, and Tudor styles, as well as Prairie School and Craftsmen bungalows. As for scale, houses range from one-story cottages to two-story houses to three-story mansions and larger apartment buildings.
Ansley Golf Club members enjoy two first-rate locations and clubhouses; a premier, historic midtown site in Ansley Park, along with the suburban location that is home to Ansley's nationally recognized championship golf course, Settindown. Ansley Golf Club is considered the most family oriented, friendly, and fun private Country Club in Atlanta, with formal and casual dining, swimming, tennis, fitness, youth programs, and twenty-seven of the most picturesque and demanding holes in the world of southern golf. What started out as an amenity to a real estate venture in the early 1900’s has, over the years, evolved to become one of Atlanta’s premier in-town and suburban clubs.
