The Woodlands Nature Preserve is  a sheltered gem in the heart of Decatur that was  saved from development by the Morse family, who settled on the wooded property in 1946 when the land was bordered by Clairemont Avenue and a dirt track called Scott Boulevard.  The Morse family accumulated some 7.1 acres and called it “Woodlands”, leaving much of it natural, and cultivating lovely gardens near their home.  As Decatur grew and developed, the family had many offers to sell the prime corner acreage, but fortunately for the community, they had a different vision. 

The family donated Woodlands to the Decatur Preservation Alliance in 2002 to maintain the land as a permanently protected green space.  Areas that were once terraced for farming are being returned to a more natural state and more than 30 species of trees shade this protected glen, including 100-year old oaks and poplars.  The Woodlands is open to the public on a limited schedule –  the last Sunday of the month from 2-4  p.m., and every other Wednesday from 9-11 a.m. 


The Woodlands is an ideal neighbor for 1010 Scott Boulevard!  Unit A-5 is well situated in the complex close to the front with great parking and easy access to Scott Boulevard.  Upgrades include a kitchen renovation with stainless steel appliances, fresh paint throughout, hardwood floors and new thermal pane windows.  Both Bedrooms are spacious and the bathrooms have been updated as well.  Washer-Dryer facilities are located on the grounds, but there is  a  Washer-Dryer in the Unit.   The complex is well-run, has a swimming pool, and is very popular with Emory Personnel and Emory Students because of the close proximity to the University.  Contact Atlanta Decatur Homes to view this charming unit.

Another practical benefit enjoyed by the residents of Scott Court at The Woodlands involves the Free Emory Cliff Shuttle.  A convenient bus stop is located just a few blocks away.   Emory University operates a free Cliff Bus service, fueled by electricity or natural gas, which provides bus transportation for Emory Campus routes, Commuter routes, and Emory Hospital routes throughout the area.    The route system extends to North and South DeKalb Malls, Executive Park, Georgia Tech, Yerkes and Lenox Square Mall, as well as a number of other handy commuter locations.   

1010 Scott Boulevard, A-5, is located within walking distance to downtown Decatur, and the local YMCA.  It will be difficult to find a more reasonably-priced home in Decatur, Georgia, or one as conveniently situated.
