Looking for a home in Nashville?
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 Hillsboro Village:
- It’s got history – Hillsboro Village has been one of Nashville’s favorite areas for a long time. It was originally part of the Belmont estate, and began breaking into neighborhoods just before the 20th century. Although it did go through a “quiet” period, the action here never died off completely and locals rallied hard to revitalize the area some years ago.
- Convenient, convenient, convenient – Hillsboro Village is centrally located to Vanderbilt University and Belmont, as well as a very short 5 minute drive to downtown Nashville.
- It feels like a village – Truly, this 4 block community packs everything in to give the feel of a unique little village dropped into Nashville. There are bookstores, restaurants, markets and a couple of gas stations, all well loved and known by the residents. You will also find a unique entertainment venue with its own traditions at Belcourt Theatre.
- It blends old and new – Because of the rich history of the area, many old buildings have been converted or salvaged for new use. One the most popular and beloved coffee shops, Fido’s, chose that name to honor the previous business, a pet shop that had also been well loved. Now, with newer developments popping up among the historical houses and buildings, Hillsboro Village embodies the latest trends in urban living.
- It’s mixed – With the close proximity to two major colleges and the newer condos and many older homes that have been split up for rental purposes, there are a lot of young residents. However, since the area is also full of beautifully renovated houses, a number of families have settled happily into Hillsboro Village. Similar to Berry Hill, a quick stroll down the sidewalk will introduce you to a large number of kids and dogs, as well as young people.
