Neighborhood Profile: 12 South

Nashville is full of unique and iconic neighborhoods, and 12 South is an example of a great place for families and singles alike. Enjoy the walkability along tree-lined streets full of vintage bungalows and visit the legendary “I Believe in Nashville” sign. Bordered by 15th Avenue S. to the west and 440 to the south with 12th Avenue S. running through the hub of a busy neighborhood. It is prime real estate in the Nashville landscape.


History and What It Has to Offer


Southern Living has dubbed the 12 South neighborhood one of the South’s best, and while the local flavors and great dining options make it a desirable place to live. But with Sevier Park, a large 19th century Greek Revival mansion on expansive grounds, anchors the neighborhood with a large green space and park that residents enjoy year-round, and at the turn of the 20th century came the growth of many of the classic bungalows and cottages that now line the streets. Similar to other urban neighborhoods around Nashville, 12 South suffered in the 1970s and 80s when there was a migration to the suburbs and has experienced growth and vitality in the last decade.


What to Expect if You Buy in 12 South

As one of the hottest (and geographically smallest) neighborhoods in Nashville, the competition is fierce. Sevier Park, beautifully restored homes, and amazing walkability to coffee shops, boutiques, and restaurants have drawn people into its charm. Homes in the 12South area are usually few and go quickly due to the popularity, with a median home price over $500,000.
