Nashville is full of all kinds of neighborhoods that offer future and potential home buyers an array of features and community amenities to enjoy, but like most cities, some options are much more desirable than others for a wide range of reasons. And while there’s certainly more to buying a home or condo aside from where it’s located, location is still often a major factor in any decision you’ll likely make.
So, which Nashville neighborhoods stand out above the rest?
Of course opinions may vary depending on who you talk to, but for our money, here’s a short list of some of the city’s most coveted neighborhoods or communities to call home:
Like in most major cities, living in the heart of downtown has its advantages. For anybody already working in downtown Nashville, being able to walk to work has its upside. And when you’re also just blocks from plenty of great shopping and entertainment options, it’s also easy to see while calling downtown Nashville home may be appealing.
A former industrial district that’s now one of the hottest places to live in Nashville, The Gulch is perfect for anybody looking for that flashy high-rise condo or chic urban loft residence. There’s also plenty of high-end restaurants, hotels, and night clubs in the area as well, making The Gulch on of the more vibrant places to call home in Nashville.
While some people like a little peace and quiet, others want to live right in the heart of all the action. And if you’re someone who prefers the latter, there’s no better place to begin a home search than right here in the The District. As the epicenter of Nashville’s nightlife scene, The District certainly provides home buyers with a pretty unique living experience, not to mention a very close proximity to most of Nashville’s most famous bars.
The West End
Situated adjacent to Vanderbilt and Belmont universities, The West End has more of a small-town/tight-knit community feel to it, even despite the area having a pretty extensive mixture of restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, and small retail shops. As far as housing goes, West End real estate is about as diverse as the neighborhood itself, providing plenty of options and opportunities to those in search of a new home, condo, or townhouse.
12 Avenue South
Not long ago, 12 Avenue South wouldn’t have had a chance to make it on the list, but as one of Nashville’s fastest growing neighborhoods, it’s now home to all sorts of quirky boutiques, locally-owned eateries, and plenty of chic housing options. It’s also a popular spot for anybody who loves older homes with a charming look and feel, but as 12 Avenue South continues to evolve, finding something here is becoming more and more challenging by the day!
