This established neighborhood features many 1950s and 1960s brick ranch-style homes on large lots. The houses typically have 2 to 4 bedrooms with less than 2,000 square feet. Many homeowners have expanded the attics and/or enclosed the garages to add extra living space. The ranch homes typically sell for in the low $200s to the mid $400s, so it is an affordable option in a great location! Here are a few more important details about this neighborhood:

- The Medlock Park neighborhood is on the north side of Decatur (often referred to simply as "North Decatur") bounded by Scott Blvd and Lawrenceville Hwy on the East, North Decatur Rd on the South, Willivee Drive on the West, and the Clyde Shepherd Nature Preserve is the Northern boundary.
- The neighborhoods surrounding Medlock Park include: University Heights, North Decatur Heights, Downtown Decatur and Druid Hills.
