Zen View at Emory, Houston Mill at Clifton Road

Take Houston Mill south from Lavista Road to Clifton Road. It's a woodsy curvy, hilly road that makes you wonder if you are still in the city. Approaching Clifton you'll pass Ben Franklin School on the right and Gatewood Road on the left. You'll crest the hill next to the bank and blammo. You get a sense of why the Emory area was so desirable to the Chandlers. The pictures don't do it justice. Have a look the next time you are near Emory. Here is the hill's crest.
