"Quiet, Yet Convenient; Exclusive, Yet Down to Earth"

Every year, the residents of the Whitland Avenue Historic District open their doors to the public for the annual home tour, and in doing so provide an ongoing example of how traditional neighborhood spirit still thrive in parts of Nashville. Literally just off of West-End Avenue exists a shady, tree-lined blvd of sidewalks, large yards and historic homes that - if one were not aware of how they had arrived at this destination - could easily be a street in a small historic town in any part of the U.S., so quiet is the atmosphere and so homey the surroundings. Unlike many other neighborhoods bordering Belle Meade or West End, however, Whitland is a down to earth mixture of both picket-fence, middle-class American homes and renovated historic homes that easily push seven figures, but all of which co-exist and co-mingle to create place that feels like home in the truest sense. Neighbors are friendly and on the morning school run you will frequently see moms and dads standing and talking to one another and helping out with taking turns dropping the kids at school. It is difficult to find a place so replete with the comforts of an old, established and yet incredibly well looked after neighborhood (it is on the historic registry, after all!) so close to the amenities of West End, such as the restaurants around Vanderbilt, or the medical center at St. Thomas.
