Hillsboro Village is best known as a popular walkable commercial district sandwiched between Belmont University and Vanderbilt University.

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.
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.
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.
