If you’re new to the area, you may be familiar with the Hip Donelson suburb but it’s one of the most desirable places to live in Nashville. It’s home to many young families that wanted a great place to raise a family and it’s a quiet suburb.
It’s odd that it remains so quiet as it’s just a few miles from the hip downtown Nashville scene along the I-40 and Lebanon Road. Now the neighborhood is being called the “Hip Donelson” because of how popular it is to home buyers and the competition taking place in bidding wars.
Many buyers have found that they put an offer on a home that they saw that day and there were already a few offers before theirs. Why is this neighborhood so popular? Here is a look at the “Hip” Donelson suburb of Nashville.
The newly discovered neighborhood
This neighborhood has just been discovered by many in the area and has quickly grown from another beautiful suburb in Nashville to everyone’s most-wanted area to live. Almost every home in the neighborhood that’s been listed for sale in the past few years has had multiple offers which makes real estate agents know that pretty much anything in the neighborhood is a guaranteed sale.
The neighborhood features great amenities like many family-ready ranch-style homes, access to the commuter rail service of Music City Star and the largest community farmers’ market in the region seeing 60,000 visitors annually. It’s also an area with gorgeous recreational opportunities from Percy Priest Lake to Stones River and the city greenways.
While it was once a neighborhood considered old and outdated, many realized that the area was the perfect location. The quality of life here is excellence with affordable homes by individuals and families that felt many other neighborhoods lie East Nashville are out of their price range.
Hip Donelson is actually the name of a nonprofit organization that promotes community activity and support for local business which is part of the reason this nickname for the suburb stuck. The organization helps find lost pets too.
Advice to those interested in living in the area is to be persistent. You may have to go through seven houses before you get an offer accepted because of the competition but it’s worth it when you live in this prime neighborhood.
