"Heart of Forest HIlls"

Immediately south of Green Hills, commercial space and condo lots give way to winding streets and large lots. Forest Hills and Seven Hills are outgrowths from the Hillsboro Road thoroughfare. The rolling slopes in these lush green spaces actually are those "green hills" visible from Green Hills. And perhaps because of the elevated lots, or simply because of the quiet, sought-after, near-town location, the prices are equally high. A new build on Bancroft will set you back anywhere from $1.1M to $4.4M based on currently listed prices, but like many other parts of Nashville that were once dominated by ranch style and split level hones, look beyond these newly established streets and gated communities and you will find opportunities in the low $400s for renovation or complete redevelopment. Indeed it is the older homes that still dominate the area - many of which are like new on the inside after lots of investment - and given the building slow down it could be that this mix will remain for longer than initially thought.

This area - much like Oak HIll - is very family oriented and definitely the type of place most people who envision the picket fence version of the American dream would aspire to live. It is also, like Oak Hill, it's own small town that exists as a part of metro Nashville authority. There is a large sense of community spirit, and many families belong to and gather at the Seven Hills Swim and Racquet Club that it is an integral part of the community.
