"Great Place for a Fixer-Upper"
Sylvan park is an old, long-established neighborhood in West Nashville, not far from I440, and almost equal distance to Charlotte Pike, White's Bridge Road and West End Avenue. Parts of Sylvan park had, in years prior, fallen into disrepair and seen better times, but as Nashville has grown and property prices have sky-rocketed, this has become a place for young couples or singles to buy an older home and make it their own, carrying out extensive renovations often selling them for admirable profits. Much like East Nashville was only a few years back, Sylvan park is establishing its own neighborhood vibe and even has its own community website and village real estate company, both of which work actively to encourage communication and camaraderie between and amongst the locals. Houses run the gambit with the majority having been built in the 1920s-1950s, with others having been added in the late '90s and early '00s. The older houses are mostly all cottages and again vary between having never had any work (and thus starting at around $150K) to those that have had extensive renovations including new kitchens and luxury bathrooms (and start at $289K), whereas the newer ones generally start at the $300K mark, though in honesty lack the appeal of the older homes which all maintain their original and charming facades. Mostly coveted for its good entry price point levels and proximity to downtown Nashville, one can reason that in coming years it will be a part of town that is increasingly sought after and with steadily rising prices.
