12 South

Just a couple of miles south of downtown Nashville, the vibrant
12 South community encompasses 10 blocks that run from Linden
Avenue to Sevier Park. Over 200 years ago Granny White made her
way from North Carolina and settled along the old buffalo path, now
known as Granny White Pike, to sell her ginger cakes from a roadside
stand, and later, opened an inn for travelers. Today, the same spirit of
hospitality and entrepreneurship exists in 12 South and Nashvillians
and tourists alike enjoy the highly-walkable community.

Homes in 12 South are just as eclectic as the people that live here.
You’ll find lovingly restored bungalows along tree-lined streets mixed
with newer homes built within the last couple of years.

12 South, one of Nashville’s most popular neighborhoods, is a
combination of modern trends and old world charm. 12 South has
emerged as the perfect one-stop destination to live, eat, drink, play,
and socialize. Stylish shops, beautifully-restored homes, trendy coffee
shops, and a wide array of dining options are all within walking
distance. You are likely to find a hand-stitched pair of jeans, local craft
beer, iconic photo opportunities, and a fabulous meal all in one visit.


Belle Meade

Belle Meade, which means beautiful meadow, is a small city between
Hillsboro and Harding Pike and bordered by Warner Parks and
Woodmont Boulevard. Many of Nashville’s earliest wealthy families
settled in Belle Meade, including the Cheeks of Maxwell House Coffee
fame and the Hardings whose plantation lent the community its name.
It’s a luxurious community and sits just a few miles south of downtown
Nashville, making it ultra convenient for business people and socialites alike.

The community has a timeless, almost European feel and offers a mix
of plantation style estates, charming Tudors, and mid-century modern
homes. Your neighbors will be a mix of Nashville’s top entertainers,
CEOs, and politicians.

As one of Nashville’s most affluent neighborhoods, Belle Meade
offers premier opportunities for a luxurious lifestyle. Locals flock
to the Warner Parks and Cheekwood Estate and Gardens on sunny
weekends, and Belle Meade Country Club offers a private oasis for the
area’s top golfers. The entire city feels like a city park, with gorgeous
homes featuring sprawling manicured lawns. Swanky spas, fitness
clubs, and fine dining establishments are nearby for residents to enjoy.


Bellevue is bordered by the southeast lines of Davidson County and
extends to the north to the Cumberland River. It’s intersected by
Interstate 40, making it a convenient 20 minute trip to Downtown
Nashville. Thanks to rapid growth in recent years, Bellevue has seen
countless new businesses and neighborhoods pop up, breathing new
life into the community. The new mixed-use development space known
as One Bellevue Place gives residents an urban-suburban feel at a price
point much lower than similar communities with Nashville addresses.

The neighborhoods in Bellevue feel established, with most of the homes
being built from the 1970s to 2000, but with new development, more
housing types and lifestyle choices are available. Here you’ll find ranches
and mid-century modern homes as well as condos and townhomes.

In addition to a plethora of shopping and dining options, Bellevue also
offers easy access to some of Nashville’s finest outdoor recreation,
particularly the Warner Parks. Green Door Gourmet is a beautiful farm
and venue offering cooking classes and u-pick fruits and flowers.
Bellevue is also the home to the start of the Natchez Trace and
Loveless Cafe, a southern restaurant known for its delicious biscuits.
Tailgate Brewery has also brought the craft beer scene to Bellevue and
hosts several fun weekly and annual events.


Crieve Hall

The quiet residential neighborhood of Crieve Hall, just three exits south
of downtown Nashville, is bordered by Blackman Road to the North,
Interstate 65 to the West, and Ellington Agricultural Center and Seven
Mile Creek to the East. Like most of Nashville’s suburban areas, Crieve
Hall offers easy access to all modern amenities including grocery stores,
shopping, and movie theaters. If you’re looking for a trendy spot, you’ll
be happy to know you’re less than 15 minutes from anywhere in urban
Nashville. The Crieve Hall neighborhood is full of picture-perfect scenes
of mature trees, green lawns, and unique Music City charm.

Crieve Hall is a quintessential suburban neighborhood located just
south of Nashville. One-story ranch homes on large lots tend to
dominate these gently rolling hills. You’ll find original 1950-era homes
with many that have been updated to today’s modern standards.

Crieve Hall’s homes are well loved by home buyers and residents
for their spacious yards, which are ideal for gardening, sitting in the
sun, and enjoying the feeling of living in a suburban neighborhood
without sacrificing the convenience. The area is surrounded by green
spaces including Whitfield Park and the 207-acre Ellington Agriculture
Complex, a public space popular for leisurely weekend strolls.


Located between 10th Avenue and the Cumberland River from
Charlotte Avenue to Peabody Street, the Downtown and South of
Broadway (SoBro) areas are the heart of Nashville. Nashville’s earliest
settlers celebrated in the late 1700s with fiddle tunes and buck
dancing after safely disembarking on the shores of the Cumberland
River. From its very beginnings, Nashville grew from a foundation built
on music. Today, with a wealth of fantastic eateries and a thriving local
arts scene, the city’s bustling downtown district is directly responsible
for shaping the growing international reputation of Nashville.


In addition to luxury condominium buildings set amongst office high-
rises, Downtown/SoBro is home to fantastic warehouse conversions and some pretty spectacular lofts. As Downtown/SoBro grows, so does the condo inventory, as well as housing prices.

Living within Nashville’s urban core, you’ll understand why Nashville is
known as “Music City, U.S.A.” The Downtown/SoBro area is home to
several music venues — from the abundance of honky-tonks that line
Broadway to the historic Ryman Auditorium and Bridgestone Arena.
Whether it’s fine dining or low-key BBQ, there is something for everyone
when it comes to restaurants. Check out the symphony, ballet, opera, or
one of many museums. You’ll get the true urban experience here.

East Nashville

East Nashville is a large neighborhood encompassing many
communities on a swath of land to the east and north of the
Cumberland River. The river serves as one border and Gallatin Pike and
East Trinity Lane form the others. Historically, East Nashville has been
a very desirable area, but much of the area was destroyed in the great
fire of 1916. It took almost a century for the area to fully recover but it
has rebounded and reclaimed its former glory. Today, residents love
the high-caliber restaurants, shops, and sense of community that East
Nashville is known for.

East Nashville is an incredibly eclectic area to live. On the outlying
edges, you’ll find high-end luxury condos for sale. Closer to the heart
of the neighborhood, residents live in cute cottages, bungalows, and
craftsmen style homes, some of which have been lovingly restored.

East Nashville is known as one of the coolest and trendiest
neighborhoods in the city. From top-ranked restaurants to unique
shops, there are a plethora of things to explore. This area is also known
for smaller music venues that feature top local talent. Spend your days
walking the Five Points area or head to Eastland Avenue to explore all
this area has to offer.



Germantown is one of the most historic neighborhoods in Nashville.
This area gained its name in the mid-19th century when many German
immigrants called this area home. Brick sidewalks, green spaces, and a
strong community presence are all hallmarks of this area. Rosa L Parks
Boulevard and Jefferson Street form the edges of this community.
Hume Street and 2nd Avenue North run along the opposite edges
making an almost perfect square. This area also borders Bicentennial
Park, making it one of the most outdoor-centric areas in the city.

Germantown offers extremely diverse housing opportunities.
Residents love the renovated, historic Victorian buildings throughout
the neighborhood. If you prefer newly built homes, condos, lofts,
townhouses, and single family homes are also all apart of the
landscape of Germantown.

Germantown is an easily walkable neighborhood full of high-end
shops, beloved restaurants, and outdoor spaces. This area has been
deemed a city Arboretum so residents can enjoy protected natural
greenery. This area is also on the National Register of Historic Places
so there are plenty of historically significant locations to visit. Lastly,
Nashville’s minor league baseball team, The Sounds, play just a short
walk away, so truly the best of city living is at residents’ fingertips!


Sylvan Park/
Sylvan Heights/
Charlotte Avenue

Sylvan Park, Sylvan Heights, and Charlotte Avenue all border one
another and many locals see the lines between the neighborhoods
as blurred. Generally, this area is bordered by Charlotte Avenue, goes
south down Richland Creek and cuts back north to reach the Interstate
440 barrier. Many outdoor loving city-dwellers call the area home
due to an amazing golf course and greenway system. This area is also
known for being an avid supporter of local businesses, which is evident
as some of the oldest restaurants in Nashville can be found in this area.

This area of Nashville is known for quiet residential streets lined with
bungalows and single-family homes. Sylvan Heights, in particular, has
seen a growth in new construction three-story houses with views
towards the city.

area. With plenty of outdoor space and an easy walk to West End,
locals are always on the move! If you head to Charlotte Avenue, you’ll
find some of the hottest restaurants popping up along the street.
