"Perfect Place For First Time Buyer DINKS"

Kenner Avenue in Nashville is one of the very few streets in this much sought after location between Belle Meade and Green Hills that still possesses small, modest cottages, hundred-year old oaks and a heavily controlled speed limit for what they call a "peaceful street environment." But if you're interested in this type of place, you may want to hurry as Kenner is quickly undergoing what many parts of Nashville have already experienced. Of the perhaps forty homes that line this avenue, over half are almost unrecognizable as their original form, having been upgraded and uplifted with the best and latest, indoors and out. Of the half that are still in their original form, at least 20% have been bought and are in the process of serious renovation. There are, however, several still as is and no doubt soon to be on offer. Kenner is thick with speed bumps in order to keep drivers under 25mph, and because of the extra pedestrian lane painted on either side of the street, you will often find runners, dog-walkers and moms with their kids enjoying the outdoors. At one end of Kenner is Harding Pike with every imaginable convenience, including one of Nashville's best hospitals and pediatric groups, as well as Publix and Harris Teeter grocery stores. At the other end it's like being in another world, with a small, well-kept neighborhood park with small walking path, playground and tennis court. This is a neighborhood for home buyers of high-middle income means to get their start on the property ladder.
