i lived in barrett walk for a year. moved from smyrna because the rent was about $100-$200 less! the complex is kept very clean. i remember seeing the landscape crew outside almost everyday! the pool is to die for, and at night is the best time for adults to go. any maintenance issue i had, they fixed. the crew was nice as well. parking is difficult. you're better off getting a garage, otherwise, you're parking a mile away from your actual door. it's also a hike from downtown atlanta, so prepare for that. i love that it's on a side street as well, but still close to food and shopping. i moved because rent went up, and for the small one bedroom i had, it was not worth it. quiet and luxury living.
