Great Lakes - City of Decatur Homes
Sharon Kolb, Broker - Atlanta Decatur Homes (Atlanta Decatur Homes)

Posted on April 19, 2011 by atlantadecaturhomes

One of the most desirable neighborhoods in the City of Decatur is located just off Clairemont  Avenue. Some of the most beautiful Decatur Homes are found in Great Lakes, which  was named for long-vanished Lake Seneca, now a mostly dry stream in Waddell Park

History of Great Lakes

The surrounding streets were named for the famous French explorer, Samuel de Champlain and the Great Lakeshe discovered in the early 1600′s - Lake Huron, Lake Superior, Lake Erie, Lake Seneca, and Lake Ontario.

Champlain was the first European to explore and describe the Great Lakes, providing some of the first maps and descriptions of the Great Lakes area - the largest fresh water system on Earth.  Lake Erie, which meant Lake of the Cat, was named for the Erie Indians who occupied the southern shore, literally called People of the Panther; Lake Huron, named Lac des Hurons, was the Lake of the Huron Indians; Lake Seneca the land of the Seneca Indians;  and Lake Superior was referred to by the early French explorers as Le lac Superieur, which translated to "Upper Lake".

Clairemont Avenue, which borders the historic Great Lakesneighborhood, was originally part of a Native American trail leading to a crossing at the Chattahoochee, known as Shallowford Trail. 

Decatur HomesDecatur real estateHomes in Decatur

Architecture of Great Lakes

Great Lakes was developed beginning in 1913 through the 1930′s and contains some of the most interesting architecture in Decatur.  Craftsmen-style bungalows predominate, but a large variety of Decatur homesexist, including English Tudor and Georgia Vernacular bungalows, as well as newer construction that mimics prevailing styles on a larger scale.  Great Lakes now falls within a Historic District which was  established in 2001.

Decatur Park - Waddell ParkNeighborhood Park - Waddell Park

Waddell Park, a ravine-like oasis and green space, is located at the corner of Huron Street and Champlain Street and serves as a local meeting place and play area, featuring a small nature trail.  Originally named "Closeburn Park", but donated by the neighborhood in 1994 to the City of Decatur and renamed at that time for a local benefactor.

Homes in the Great Lakes section of Decatur, GA
Dan Benefield (Benefield Realty)

Homes in the Great Lakes section of Decatur, GA

Homes in the Great Lakes Subdivision of Decatur, Georgia have been in high demand for years. The homes in this subdivision are located in the City of Decatur. Shops, restaurants, Churches, schools, and mass transit are all within walking distance of this neighborhood. Decatur serves as the County seat for DeKalb County and is centrally located within the County. Homeowners in the Great Lakes Neighborhood have a mere 7 mile commute to Downtown Atlanta. This neighborhood gives homeowners the feel of quiet seclusion nestled in hardwoods with all the benefits of in town living.

Old Decatur Courthouse

There are no lakes in or around the Great Lakes neighborhood. The subdivision takes its name from the streets that comprise it. All of the streets that make up the neighborhood are named for the Great Lakes, i.e. Superior, Huron, Champlain, Erie, & Lucerne.

Living in the Great Lakes, you are within a 15 minute commute to numerous notable colleges and universities, including Emory University, Georgia State, Georgia Tech, Agnes Scott, and Georgia Perimeter College. The area is within 10 minutes of DeKalb Medical Center, Emory Hospital, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, and the Atlanta VA hospital.

Homes in the Great Lakes vary in architecture and range from grand old 2 story homes with tile roofs to quaint bungalow style brick homes. As of this writing you can expect to find homes priced on the low end in the mid 200's, to upwards of a million dollars, depending on size and the amount of renovation the home has had.
