Nashville Real Estate

Nashville Real Estate

Historically, there's been a tendency for homes in Nashville to be built on top of rock, which actually decreases their chances of having basements. That said, part of the attraction of Nashville real estate is the fact that the topography includes rolling hills.

As the land in and around Nashville has become more and more expensive, lots that were at one time thought to be unsuitable for building because of their steep slope, have now become desirable properties.

In an effort to minimize slope and to make basements a possibility, areas such asBrentwood, Belle Meade, Forest Hills, and Green Hills are seeing an increase in the number of lots being cleared of trees and leveled. New homes are then being built upon these highly sought after lots. Property in Tyne Estates is also in high demand because of the landscape, and areas to the north of Nashville are becoming more popular and include such neighborhoods as Hendersonville, Gallatin, and Goodlettsville.

As with other major cities, the demand for Nashville land is increasing. Fortunately, there are a number of old farms in the area that are ideal for developing new subdivisions and retail centers. Development of this kind has proven to be successful at attracting people and building infrastructure. For example, Hendersonville is home to a new 400-acre shopping development at Indian Lakes, and Mt. Juliet has Providence—an expansive mixed-use development.

Green Hills Real Estate

Green Hills is an upscale shopper’s delight in Nashville. This historic neighborhood features expansive ranch style dwellings, spacious single family homes, lovely English country design houses, town homes, and condominiums. Green Hills offers spectacular amenities such as high ranking schools, a reputable university (Lipscomb University), a magnificent, high-end shopping mall (The Mall at Green Hills), a village- style shopping complex (Hill Center), a fantastic antique mall, and an exceptional library. Nashville is graced with a strong economy and provides career opportunities with high tech industries, retail businesses, banking firms, transportation companies, and manufacturing industries.

Green Hills is a relatively affluent neighborhood in Nashville. Though there were some plans to incorporate Green Hills into a town in the 1950’s, this was never completed. Green Hills is located south of downtown Nashville on Hillsboro Road (U.S. Highway 431). Home to The Mall at Green Hills, a high-end enclosed shopping center, and Hill Center, a village-style shopping center, Green Hills is Nashville’s shopping destination.

Hillsboro High School, located directly across the highway from the Mall, actually predates much of the neighborhood, which began on a small scale in the 1930s but was not highly populated until after World War II. Another public educational institution is Julia Green Elementary School, a primary school. A major private educational institution is Lipscomb University and its associated elementary and high schools. Another is Harpeth Hall School, a prestigious girls’ high school.
