Hendersonville Best Neighborhoods

Anyone paying attention to the real estate market (not to mention the music, food, or sports scene) knows the city of Nashville is among the country's hottest. And when it comes to the suburbs of Music City, it's hard to beat Hendersonville, less than 20 miles from the heart of Broadway and the city's many employment centers.

Set along Old Hickory Lake and the Cumberland River, this community of just over 60,000 people (including music legends Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison at one time) is full of fantastic chances to get outdoors, a historic downtown, and some of the region's best neighborhoods and homes. Read on as we explore the eight best for would-be buyers considering moving to Hendersonville.

Blue Ridge

The Blue Ridge community comprises a few quiet streets off Main Street/US Highway 31E. These peaceful residential blocks are right across the road from the Hazel Path Commons shopping center, where homeowners can grab a bite to eat at the neighborhood favorite Cafe 393 or a local beer from Half Batch Brewing. They're also just minutes from the extensive shopping and numerous restaurants along Indian Lake Boulevard. Golfers and boaters will love their location just around the corner from Bluegrass Yacht and Country Club, one of the area's best marinas and most prestigious courses.

Homes in the Blue Ridge subdivision are all fairly recently built single-family detached homes from the mid-1990s through the past few years. They're typically spacious, with four or five bedrooms spread over 4,300–5,300 square feet of living space. Many include covered patios, walkout basements, walk-in pantries, and modern master suites. For extra privacy, many also have private pools or back onto undeveloped green space. Homes in Blue Ridge list from the mid-$700s to the mid-$800s.

  • Some homes back onto green space
  • Adjacent to US Highway 31E/Main Street

Lakeside Park

Lakeside Park sits on the westernmost of the peninsulas extending into Old Hickory Lake, south of downtown. It's an entirely residential community, comprised of the area south of Luna Lane, between Walton Ferry Road and Sanders Ferry Road. It's an ideal community for those looking to enjoy the lake, as water access is blocks away on either side at numerous parks, marinas, and other rec areas. Barely two miles from the heart of Hendersonville, residents will find it easy to take advantage of the city's many restaurants, like the Mexican cuisine of Dos Margaritas or delicious seafood at Moby Dicky's. At the same time, there's little through traffic, giving Lakeside Park the feel of a much more secluded community.

Lakeside Park housing is mainly made up of one-story detached homes with three to four bedrooms. However, they can vary significantly, from as little as 1,200 square feet to more than 3,000. On the low end, older or more modestly sized Lakeside Park homes sell from the mid-$300s. Most list in the $400s, generally topping around half a million. Lakeside Park homes are typically built on lots of around a half acre or more, providing plenty of space for outdoor storage, gardens, and anything else owners can dream of.

It's also the site of Drakes Creek Park, packed with sports facilities and green space within the neighborhood.

This central location also makes reaching Interstate 65 and other popular commuter routes into and around Nashville easy.

Colonial Acres offers a diverse selection of one- and two-story single-family detached homes with three or four bedrooms.
