Old Hickory, much like Mt. Juliet, is one of those rare places where everyone cares about the community in which they live and wants to keep it as it has always been: a nice, good, safe, clean place to raise a family. Located North/Northeast of Hermitage, Old Hickory is sprawled along the South Eastern corner of Old Hickory Lake. Here you can find homes to suit almost any need or budget, with an older original house going for $150K, a 2005 built/4 br/3200 sq feet house on the market for $299K and a lake front mansion for just under $1M, along with other lake front houses ranging from $550K up to $2M. This area, though well north of the city, is still located in Davidson County and governed as such by the metro Nashville system. This means the schools are metro Davidson schools which is, generally speaking, not a good thing, but here in Old Hickory they have managed to impose their overall standards on the schools as well and thus the options here are more than suitable. Many people who have lake homes here have their main residence elsewhere, though there are plenty who live in the actual village year round. The opportunities for outdoor activities run for more than 7 months of the year due to the warm Southern climate.
