Kenner Manor Historic District Homes For Sale It’s official! Nashville’s fabulous Kenner Manor Historic District over in the Green Hills neighborhood has now made the National Register of Historic Places, which is just one of three sites in the state that will be added in 2016.

Located just west of Interstate 440 and just south of West End Avenue, the Kenner Manor Historic District is a small residential neighborhood that consists of 158 awesome single-family homes that feature a range of classic architectural styles like Colonial Revival, English Cottage Revival, and Ranch and Tudor Revival.  

Development for Kenner Manor Historic District started all the way back in 1914, which was headed by Kenner Manor Land Co. The idea behind the neighborhood was to bring more of a suburban flavor to the city during the early 20th century, which was no doubt not only accomplished through the large home designs but also the huge lot sizes and quiet residential vibe that the area still enjoys even today.

Historic Homes For Sale in Nashville

It seems that because many of today’s home buyers put such a strong emphasis on new construction that most of the Nashville area’s stunning historic homes are often overlooked during an on-going home search, at least for those particular buyers who really don't consider all their options. 

As a city that has just about as rich of a history as any other in the southern U.S., historic homes in Nashville occupy a significant portion of the local real estate market, providing all kinds of unique opportunities that might just surprise some potential buyers who may prefer new to old.

What a home looks like on the outside isn’t always the best indicator of what may be found on the inside, as most of Nashville’s higher-end historic homes have been fully outfitted and customized to include many of the same features a newer home usually offers. Gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances and granite counters, spa-quality bathrooms with top-of-the-line fixtures and surrounds, and even numerous smaller elements like updated lighting or paint can be just some of the things a re-vamped historic home in Nashville may feature, but you'll never know unless you take a closer look at what's currently on the market.

It’s easy to expect such renovations in historic homes over $1 million, but even some of Nashville’s original bungalows and cottage style homes have since been updated with brand new kitchens, bathroom surrounds, and various other finishes that make it suitable for today’s modern home buyers.

As the old saying goes, never judge a book by it’s cover, and that couldn’t be more relative to some of Nashville’s oldest and most historic homes for sale.
