The Downtown Nashville real estate market has been undergoing quite a metamorphosis over the last 5-6 years. The skyline is rapidly changing as the demand for downtown living is being met by the development of downtown condos. Areas such as the Gulch are part of the downtown residential core and have been transformed from a slightly rundown, forgotten area of Nashville, into one of the hottest and trendiest housing markets in Nashville.
Developers have taken advantage of some of the fantastic historic buildings in the downtown core and built condo and loft apartments out of them. Old office buildings and rental units around Church Street—in the heart of the central business district—have been turned into upscale residential units.
Hillsboro Village, Green Hills & West End
Hillsboro Village has an artsy/music/student feel with eclectic art stores, restaurants that cater to music business execs and stars, as well as student pubs. The area has a distinct village feel, with buildings only two stories high and built predominantly between the late 1800's and the 1950's.
Moving a little closer to the suburbs, West End has a contemporary urban feel with new construction, retail, and hotels that accommodate the Vanderbilt student population. There are also many offices and professional services in the region. West End's close proximity to I440 has made this a very desirable location for residential and business real estate alike.
Other Nashville Communities
Nashville also has well-established communities and cities that are only a short 30-minute drive away.
East Nashville has been quietly transforming over the past 15 years from a place of urban decline to one of the most desirable areas of the city. East Nashville attracts artists of all genres, which has led to some amazing renovations and fabulous restaurants.
Franklin, which is to the south of Nashville, has the highest concentration of million dollar luxury homes in the greater Nashville area.
Just a little further south are the rapidly growing communities of Thompson Station, Spring Hill, and Columbia. Mt. Juliet and Lebanon to the east are connected via a new railroad system for commuters.
Hendersonville is to the northeast of Nashville, and is known as the city on the lake. Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, and Conway Twitty all made their homes here and helped to create the city of Hendersonville, Tennessee. The popularity of living on the lake continues today and Gallatin has the added attraction of having the only golf course community on the lake in the greater Nashville Tennessee area.
