The Oakridge Condominium community was built in the 1980s and is located in the 2500 block of LaVista Road. It is approximately one mile east of Clairmont Road and three miles west of Interstate 285. It is bounded on the east by Richard Stokes Drive, on the south by Nelms Drive and on the west by LaVista Drive. Oakridge Condos welcomes people from all walks of life and nationalities - senior citizens, young married couples, singles and college students. The Oakridge condos are situated on approximately 13 acres and are carefully placed to protect the privacy of residents. There are 116 units in ten buildings. Each condo has a patio/porch with views of the surrounding trees. Oakridge Condos consist of two-, three- and a few four-bedroom units. All three- and four-bedroom units are located on the second and third floors and most of the two-bedroom units are located on the first floor.
There are 32 carports which were assigned to units at the time the condos were built. Each condo has close access to open parking areas and is allocated two parking spaces near their front door. There is additional parking nearby at the pool. When the condominiums were built, the owner had the foresight to leave the property, as much as possible, in its natural state with many trees. It therefore provides a lot of privacy for each condo and makes living here quieter than in areas where trees were removed and the ground leveled. There is also a beautiful swimming pool nestled in the center of the condos which is enjoyed by children and adults and is open from May 1st through September 30th.
The Oakridge community is close to schools; such as Oak Grove Elementary and Lakeside High School; and is close to many churches of diverse religious beliefs. Emory University Hospital and School as well as the Communicable Disease Center are nearby and many people who live here go to school and/or work there. The MARTA bus line runs directly in front of the condo entrance and buses go to the MARTA Train Stations which gives complete access to downtown and other areas of Atlanta as well as to the Atlanta Airport. Oakridge condos are also close to many shopping centers which are easily accessible by car and bus.
