"Something for (almost) Everyone"
It's difficult to squarely define Hillwood as being entirely affordable, given the great disparity in prices between the older homes that line the Western edge of the neighborhood and the newer ones that have been built closer to Hillwood Country Club. However, given that for around $300K you can buy a house that is in proximity to one listing currently for $4.59Million, and know that with that comes a secure neighborhood, a clean and safe environment, and the possibility of seeing your property's value increase, it does at the very least start to seem like a good deal. Hillwood is bordered by Harding Pike, Charlotte Avenue and Davidson Drive and has in recent years become the solution for homebuilders with means who wanted to be in Belle Meade, but knew that failing a miracle, no piece of land would ever come available. Just across the street from Belle Meade proper is Hillwood, with it's nice, clean streets, whopping huge homes, modest & perfectly nice family homes and state of the art country club. Like everything else in this area, the access to good schools - both public and private - is excellent as is access to health care, groceries and pretty much every other convenience required in modern day life. The only downside I can see to this area is the same that could potentially someday prove an upside, that being that there is still construction and there is always the chance that one day your neighbor in the more modest part of this enclave will sell their house and allow it to be knocked down to build a whopper.
