Our Favorite Neighborhoods
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.
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.
The Gulch is Nashville's newest urban neighborhood. What was once an old train yard has quickly developed into the most hip and trendy locale for mid-rise and highrise condominiums that offer impressive views and eco-friendly living.
Hillsboro Village is best known as a popular walkable commercial district sandwiched between Belmont University and Vanderbilt University. Only a handful of blocks total, it is jam packed with local restaurants, trendy boutiques, local book and cooking shops, a post office, a service station, and a local theater.
Sylvan Park is located near the intersection of I-440 and West End Ave is a charming, historic neighborhood with traditionally smaller Cottages and Victorian homes built from 1910 to 1940. Sylvan Park also includes a vibrant restaurant and shopping Village as well as a public library, a park, a new community center, and a public golf course.
