Our Favorite Neighborhoods
Downtown living is new to Nashville, having only started in the mid 1990s. For those interested in a Live/Work/Play lifestyle all in the same place, Downtown is a perfect choice. Many old buildings are being converted into urban lofts with exposed brick and large windows that offer Nashvillians the a bit of the feel of New York without the price tag.
Germantown is all about diversity. The eight-block area is an architecturally heterogeneous mixture of residences built between 1840 and 1930, and new houses are built according to the neighborhood's historic architectural guidelines. It is home to Nashville's largest Farmers Market, several great restaurants, and it is the only tranditional neighborhood with houses that is not seperated from Downtown by an interstate.
West Meade is one of Nashville's mid-century suburbs consisting of 1950s ranch homes on large lots located west of Harding Road/West End Avenue. It is perfect for buyers looking for a home that is close town while also having a country feel.
Waverly-Belmont, along with Belmont-Hillsboro, sits between the Hillsboro Village and 12South neighborhoods and is home to Belmont University. In addition to historic homes, there are many townhome and condo developments throughout the neighborhood. If you're looking for a grand historic home in a traditional small town setting, this is a neighborhood worth visiting.
Belle Meade has many large estate homes, but also a few smaller residences from the 1930s and 1940s. It was subdivided in the early 20th century when the Belle Meade Plantation was sold to developers and the original homes were built by many of the biggest family names in Nashville at the time. It is home to the Warner Parks that have over 300 acres of walking and hiking trails, an equestrian track, sports fields, and a dog park.
