The Nations. You’ve heard of it and you probably even know somebody who lives or hangs out there by now. But what makes Nashville’s The Nations neighborhood so unique? Often described as a new age community with a friendly atmosphere and even friendlier residents, The Nations real estate landscape doesn’t resemble your typical Nashville neighborhood with vintage bungalows and old vintage houses.
Instead, homes in The Nations are new, functional, and sustainable, all while still maintaining that classic charm and character you’re used to seeing around town. In addition, development around The Nations is designed to have a higher-density footprint as well, with homes mostly having smaller lot sizes but much more vertical living space.
Aside from the attractive and modern living spaces, though, The Nations is also full of locally owned boutiques, restaurants, cafes, and small businesses that all help give it a charming small town feel despite being just off I-40, which of course can put residents in downtown Nashville only a matter of minutes.
Although The Nations neighborhood has now been around for a little while, it’s certainly a location to keep your eye on if you’re going to be looking for a new home sometime in 2016.
Oh, and if you’re wondering where The Nations came from, it’s actually named after the Chickasaw Nations Native American tribe, who has legend has it, lived in the area all the way back in the 1700s.
