Midtown is an area between Hillsboro Village and Downtown that includes Music Row, Edgehill Village, and Vanderbilt University. While some neighborhoods in Midtown have single family residences, it predominantly consists of condominiums and commercial property including offices, restaurants, and Vanderbilt Medical Center.
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.
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.
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.
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.
