Buying a home in Nashville comes with a multitude of questions, especially if you are relocating or unfamiliar with the Nashville area. Real estate agents are often the main resource for a new homeowner and can be of great assistance in answering questions. However, the answers will depend entirely on the questions asked, and a stressed homeowner may overlook a key question or two.
Like every major city, Nashville has a wide variety of neighborhoods and surrounding areas. Each one offers pros and cons and has its own slightly unique “personality.” Today’s post is dedicated to highlighting one of these areas to let potential homeowners learn about Nashville.
This week, here are 5 need-to-know facts about Elliston Place:
- It’s Vandy heavy – It’s true that Hillsboro Village has a lot of Vanderbilt residents as well, but that area is also mixed with Belmont. Elliston Place often feels like an extension of Vandy since it is right across the street.
- It’s loud – Okay, not every moment of the day, but Elliston Place has a whole section nicknamed the Rock Block due to the number of music venues that line it. This is not a place for early bed times.
- It’s low-key – Elliston Place is wonderfully low key. Most of the restaurants and bars are simply serving up good food and beverages and offering music at night. Often, musical acts that are touring through Nashville wind up here playing impromptu gigs late night with local bands.
- It’s a step back in time – Inevitably, every Nashville area resident is required to make a trip to one (or all) of the most beloved places in Elliston Place: Rotiers , Elliston Place Soda Shop, or Elder’s Book Store. These three establishments alone remain remarkably unmoved by advancing time and are a wonderful place to slow down.
- Housing is limited – There aren’t many housing options in Elliston Place itself. There are a few apartment and condo buildings, but most of the living opportunities are going to be found in West End or around Centennial Park. There is a large new mixed use building coming to the corner of Elliston Place and 23rd Avenue that will provide additional options too.
