"Everything is Here - Including the Traffic"

Green Hills is best known, perhaps, as the retail hub of West Nashville, being the home to the Green Hills Mall, The Hill Center and various other off-shoots and outlets. Located less than two miles from I440, the mall itself is the only in Tennessee with a Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, Wolford, being mostly aimed at the high-end consumer, and likewise the surrounding properties, though not always prohibitive, are similarly upmarket. In Green Hills proper ie in the area immediately around the mall, are an abundance of condos both old and new, with two new developments specifically setting the benchmark for luxury, albeit in close quarters as space in this area is at a premium. As you move out from the mall in a westward direction, you have the actual neighborhood of Green Hills with it's, well, hilly roads and winding streets. A much varied neighborhood, it has both the old and the new, the mid six-figures and the high sevens alike, and is very much the epitome of an in-town, middle to upper middle class enclave of professionals of all manner. The public schools here are excellent, with many locals sending their kids to the much loved Julia Green elementary in preference to parting with private school dollars any sooner than they must. And if private education does not appeal, the local Hillsboro High School is the only one in the area offering the IB (International Baccalaureate) and itself has a robust parent support system and student community. Green Hills is, for many, the only place they would choose to live, but as Nashville has grown, and with it this area, the traffic not only to and from, but through the area itself has become something of a pain. Therefore the more frequented streets, such as Estes or Hobbs, are not for walking or playing, though there are far many other streets - some of them cul-de-sacs - for families with kids. Though in general, for commuters, there is little to suggest that the traffic will ease any time soon. There is without question a great variety of houses and all with distinct personality. But for the price tag, one may need to weigh the convenience of being in the middle of it all with the reality of the privacy and quiet that could be bought by moving only a couple of miles south.
