City Living In Nashville

Feels like you can’t trip onto the Internet lately without landing on a national publication praising some aspect of Nashville life. One of the latest: “City Living Comes to Downtown Nashville” in The Wall Street Journal, a look at how “the capital of country is growing more urban.”

Compared to even a decade ago, we do have a lot more options as far as living quarters go that give us big city-life amenities: lots to do within walking distance, expansive high-rise views, downtown locales.

Curious about what kind of urban-living offerings are on the market right now in Nashville? I rounded up a six-in-the-city collection of homes that offer city-living amenities and vibes, across many busy hubs, from The Gulch to Germantown.

1015 Fatherland St., Unit 209
Nashville, TN 37206


If you’re really set on having eating, drinking, shopping and doing options steps from your door — i.e. city-like living — The 37206 Building puts you right up in The Fatherland District, with everything from a neighborhood bakery and tea shop to The Pavilion East and the many fun events it hosts. The condo itself is updated, open and affordable, with 2 beds and 2 baths at well under $250,000 asking.

Walls of windows to watch the city through at The Viridian, and this condo is stocked with sleek, modern class — plus a big bonus (and rarity downtown): two parking spots.

Downtown high-rise living with killer views and lots of amenities: a pool with a sun deck, outdoor lounge with a grill — The Encore even has a media room/theater with stadium seating.

500 Madison St., Apt. 106
Nashville, TN 37208


Hot on the idea of loft living in Germantown? Here’s a 2-bed, 2-bath space in the Summer Street Lofts with high ceilings and a mix of industrial cool and hardwood warmth, steps from the spots like City House and The Cupcake Collection that make Germantown such a lively place to live.

1309 Forrest Ave., #7
Nashville, TN 37206


The Blind Girls' Home in East Nashville, built in 1903, has been restored and modernized into the Lockeland Springs Lofts, with modern condos inside, shared green space, a huge wrap-around porch and dog park outside. This one has 3 beds and 3 baths and puts you within a stone’s throw of 5 Points and all the stuff to do there.

600 12th Ave S., Apt .1413
Nashville, TN 37203


Modern/industrial cool at the Icon in the Gulch, just under 1000 square feet, with top-notch amenities (like two pools and 2 gyms), plus right-there access to The Gulch’s busy crop of shops and restaurants.

Any of these places pique your interest? Or would you like to dig in and look for some other homes in Nashville with similar sensibilities? I’d be glad to help — just drop me a line.
