Granny White Pike
"Quiet and Leafy for a Main Thoroughfare"
Granny White Pike in Nashville, TN runs all the way from Brentwood through Forest Hills down to Belmont and yet nowhere along the way does it let down its pristine Southern facade. Houses old and new line the leafy, windy road that runs parallel to I65 and to Hillsboro, with some newer neighborhoods having almost let the area down by including unattractive behemoth houses, though even those will soon be overshadowed by the natural beauty of this area. The historic and famous Traveller's Rest is nearby as is the Governor's Mansion and many other homes dating back more than a hundred years. Though the neighborhoods lining either side are diverse ie some old and some new, they seem to co-mingle well and one will always see residents standing in their driveways having a chat or out taking walks together. In terms of being in a quiet and beautiful area outside of Nashville proper, and yet having direct access to the shops and restaurants of Green Hills at one end, or Brentwood at the other, not to mention the absolute natural beauty of the old oak trees and original stone walls, I can think of no place better to spend my money when the lottery finally goes my way.
