My wife, kids (4 & 6), and I are moving to Atlanta. We want to live within 5 miles of Northside hospital. We are looking for a neighborhood that is good for children for biking and walking. We definitely want sidewalks and foliage. We are looking for a newer home 700-800k range. Any suggestions. Thanks.

Look in Glen Errol (prices are a bit higher but homes are stunning) in Sandy Springs. You may also want to check out neighborhood around Glenridge and Northland Drive by the hospital. Newer construction is typically a house here a house there.
Oh, two other neighborhoods which are new'ish' are Woodcliff off Johnson Ferry Road near Sandy Springs or Princeton Falls off Roswell Road.

There are some really terrific elementary schools around the Northside Hospital area, notably Austin and Vanderlyn in Dunwoody (to the north of the hospital) and Sarah Smith in North Buckhead (to the south). At your price point, you should have a lot to look at in these neighborhoods. The property tax situation will be better in Dunwoody (North Buckhead is within the Atlanta city limits, Dunwoody in unincorporated DeKalb County), but as many Dunwoody residents are pushing for incorporation, this may change.

1) Sidewalks: Umm, good luck with that. Atlanta for the most part doesn't do sidewalks in residential neighborhoods. Sequence is yard, rocky curb, street.

2) Foliage: Heh heh. Let me know if you find a neighborhood without it. And take a picture because no one will believe it.

You should check out Atlanta Country Club and Chattahoochee Plantation in East Cobb. Sope Creek Elementary is a great school.

Vinings is a great area for families and there are many houses in your range, and is one of the affluent areas in metro Atlanta. It also has a great elementary school (Teasley). You may want to check out Atlanta Rd between Paces Ferry and Cumberland Blvd. There are many new homes there, and it's a short walk to the Silver Comet Trail and there is also a neighborhood park there that always has kids playing. Homes there start in the $600s. Not sure if those homes are Nickajack school, though (which is above average for the metro, but not as good as Teasley in terms of parental involvement). Atlanta Rd is right on the edge of school districts. Vinings continues from there towards Buckhead along Paces Ferry Rd.

Byrnwyck is a great neighborhood within walking distance to Northside. The school situation would require some investigation and input from others though because I'm not sure about Montgomery elementary. The neighborhood though is close, safe, heavily wooded and has a great swim and tennis club.

Another choice would be Sandy Springs inside the Perimeter - someone mentioned Glenn Erroll. Most of these streets off Mt. Vernon/Powers Ferry don't have neighborhood names but they are in your price range and are about 10 minutes from the hospital with several good options if there is traffic. The school cluster in this area is Heards Ferry Elementary, Ridgeview Charter (middle) and Riverwood High School - all excellent choices!
