"Lakefront Living"

Old Hickory, much like Mt. Juliet, is one of those rare places where everyone cares about the community in which they live and wants to keep it as it has always been: a nice, good, safe, clean place to raise a family. Located North/Northeast of Hermitage, Old Hickory is sprawled along the South Eastern corner of Old Hickory Lake. Here you can find homes to suit almost any need or budget, with an older original house going for $150K, a 2005 built/4 br/3200 sq feet house on the market for $299K and a lake front mansion for just under $1M, along with other lake front houses ranging from $550K up to $2M. This area, though well north of the city, is still located in Davidson County and governed as such by the metro Nashville system. This means the schools are metro Davidson schools which is, generally speaking, not a good thing, but here in Old Hickory they have managed to impose their overall standards on the schools as well and thus the options here are more than suitable. Many people who have lake homes here have their main residence elsewhere, though there are plenty who live in the actual village year round. The opportunities for outdoor activities run for more than 7 months of the year due to the warm Southern climate.

"Literally Something For Everyone"

It is difficult to review the Antioch section of Nashville because it is such a large and truly diverse area. When you say "Antioch" different people here will immediately think of different things. Some will think of the area just south of the zoo where Antioch begins, a much older part of inner-city that is pretty steadily being bought up and refurbished by singles with good income or couples who want to redo and then flip. This particular area is very culturally diverse, with a large population of African Americans, ethnic Kurds, Lebanese, and Mexican. At the risk of making a sweeping generalization, some of the best ethnic food can be found in the local restaurants here, making it a draw for people who have moved here from more diverse cities and find other parts of town too plain. Further East of this area, but still in Antioch, are the neighborhoods that back up to Percy Priest Lake, a popular outdoor destination for boating, swimming an other water sports. This area has everything from low rent apartments to new build condos to upmarket neighborhoods. But the one truism of this entire area is the good public school system and sense of pride in it. There is nothing you cannot find here if you simply look long enough, so give it a try, if only for a good meal.

"Historic Area Near Lakes"

West/Northwest of Nashville just above Lebanon Pike you will find historic Hermitage, TN. Technically its own town - much like Brentwood - but considered by most to be just another outpost of Nashville. Hermitage, as you may or may not know, is named after the historic home which stands there. The Hermitage was the home of President Andrew Jackson, considered by Tennesseans to have been the finest president, of course. The home has been open as a museum since 1889 and more than 15 million tourists have crossed its threshold in that time. The area now is known for affordable, quite living out of the hustle and bustle of Nashville itself. Many office areas have grown out of Nashville in this direction up nearby Lebanon Pike making it an ideal place to live for many of the worker who hold positions in companies housed there. A nice, new house in Hermitage can run anywhere from $125-$150K for a 2 br on a small or zero lot, to $700 for one standing in 7 acres or more, but for the most part prices here are more reasonable and currently there are virtually new houses of 2500 square feet for around $225K - $250K. Summit Medical center is nearby, offering state of the art healthcare, as are various restaurants and outdoor amusement areas such as a water park and paintball range. All in all, for the prices available and the quality of life, not a bad place to choose.

"1950s Neighborhood Close to Town"

The Crieve Hall area of Greater Nashville was named after the large mansion that once stood in the area, itself named after an area in Ireland that to the original owner resembled this part of middle Tennessee. The area is defined as that East of I65, West of Ellington Agriculture and Seven Mile Creek and Blackman Road on the North, but to outsiders is largely and generally thought of as the area between I65 and Nolensville Pike and Harding Place and Hill Road. Though not entirely unsafe, calling it average or safe would be perhaps a stretch, as the part of the area nearer to Nolensville Pike is often the scene of violent crimes. Granted the neighborhoods are farther off of Harding and Nolensville, but if the trend continues it cannot be long before at least petty crime encroaches upon what are currently more peaceful areas. Homes here are almost exclusively 1950s or 1960s ranch style and range in price from the $140s to - at the most - $214 and though not modern or flash, are often set on generous sized lots with mature trees. The public schools are average and possibly border on being better than that, though with so many nationally recognized public schools in the area they would in any event pale in comparison. The worst part of living here would have to be the traffic which around Harding Place is a nightmare, and yet not as bad as the quality of the driving which for whatever reason seems to be dreadful as hardly a day goes by the an accident with injuries is not reported at Harding and Nolensville. For the money, there are better places to start your search for a home.
