"Come to See Music Row - Stay for the Neighborhood"
Historic Edgehill in Nashville is highly diverse in that it comprises the mega power offices of music's elite on Music Row as well as historic homes; two universities; two hospitals; graduate schools and private grammar-thru-high schools. Whereas Hillsboro Village can be as hectic as it is fun, Edgehill has the advantage of being further away from the edge of 21st avenue - on the other side of Vanderbilt - and a bit further North of Belmont University. It is home to professors, doctors, teachers and yes, some students. Despite the commercial and academic diversity of the area, the architecture and houses are actually fairly consistent, varying only between bungalows and cottages, with occasional mock-Victorians thrown in for good measure. House prices here have somehow remained steady, perhaps because of the fact that it is still somewhat nestled between two universities and a largely commercial part of town; and thus the constant influx of students/housing does keep prices from becoming overly-inflated. Still, it is a very friendly, very conveniently located neighborhood for those who live or work in/near Vandy/Belmont or even downtown.
