Just a stone’s throw southeast of Chickasaw Gardens and overlooking the Memphis Country Club lies the little enclave known as East Buntyn. Another of Memphis’ many historic districts, East Buntyn can boast the same local amenities as Chickasaw Gardens, bordering the dining and entertainment of Highland Strip and sitting near the western edge of the University of Memphis. This quaint neighborhood is home to smaller and affordable houses built primarily mid-century, and whose architectural styles include traditional American bungalow, Craftsman, or Four Square, most with open front porches. Like Chickasaw Gardens, residents here enjoy their proximity to some of Memphis’ better public and private school systems, to the shopping off Highland and Poplar, and to Memphis’ famous Botanic Garden and the artwork of its Dixon Gallery & Gardens, as well as the same short 20-minute drive into Memphis’ Downtown and South Main.
