Neighborhood Profile: West Nashville

Many cities have an area called midtown, but for over the past decade, the Midtown neighborhood in Nashville has transformed from a mainly business district into one of the hippest areas in town. The neighborhood boundaries are narrow, lining Broadway and Division and ending at Vanderbilt University.


History and What It Has to Offer


West Nashville comprises an interesting collection of neighborhoods like the Nations and the Charlotte corridor. The cache of historic homes will delight anyone with an eye for vintage homes, like the homes built in post-World War II Nashville to house workers from the Ford glass plant. You can find automobile terms mixed in with the state street names. With a quick 10-15 minutes from downtown, this neighborhood location makes it an easy place to live for downtown commuters. The historic homes mixed with newer builds create eclectic neighborhoods that promote some walkability. There are also a good number of condos and townhomes in West Nashville—perfect for someone looking for a little less house.


What to Expect if You Buy in Sylvan Park

Not only does West Nashville provide quick and easy access to downtown and the West End area, the areas amenities have boomed. You can choose to spend your Saturday poking around thrift stores along Charlotte Pike, buy unique gifts at the boutiques dotted around, or enjoy dinner at the Blue Moon at the Rocky Harbor Marina.

West Nashville is a diverse area and the average cost of housing can jump depending on the specific neighborhood you want to land in West Nashville. I am happy to talk with you directly about what to expect for your specific neighborhood.
