2716 Bluefield Ave

Nashville, TN 37214

A few days ago, we got the honor of listing a rare treasure here in Nashville: Mon Petit Tara, a 1943 Cape Cod in the highly desired Historic Bluefields neighborhood.

The home itself has lots to offer: It’s on the National Register of Historic Places, with 4 beds, 2 baths and lots of historic detail (including the original staircase and mouldings), plus a woodsy, level, 3/4-acre lot that’s like your own personal nature sanctuary.

The location is an extra-special asset. Homes rarely hit the market in this tight-knit Historic District, for good reason — in a city with many pockets of historic homes, Bluefields has a charm all its own, centered by a big benefit that you can’t renovate into your home.

When the community was originally settled in the late 1920s, the first Bluefields homes echoed the architecture styles of other now-beloved Nashville communities, like Green Hills and Belle Meade Links. One key extra: Homes in Bluefields were built on huge lots (like the one at 2716 Bluefield Ave.), and as you’ll notice when you drive around, the community remains breezy and park-like today.

Bluefields is a small area with just over 200 homes, and residents tend to be active advocates for their neighborhood, from focusing on Historic Preservation to donating time and muscle to tend Bluefields’ beautiful common-area gardens. If you’re looking for a community that really puts the emphasis on community, Historic Bluefields is worth your attention.

The benefits just outside the small enclave are many too, from easy access to the Interstate and East Nashville to a consistently rising cachet — the wider Donelson community was just named the 15th hottest residential zip code in the country

If you explore, you can check out the history of homes in the community. Not surprisingly, many of the properties have hardly changed hands since they were built — more than a few now house second-generation Bluefields residents.

Locals always tell me that it’s one of those neighborhoods that draws you in and makes you never want to leave. I absolutely see why, and I think you will too.

Check out more details and photos of 2716 Bluefield Ave. here, and let me know if you’d like to take a look at the home and community. It’s the perfect time of year to fall in love with a leafy wonderland like Historic Bluefields.

If you’re looking elsewhere in the Nashville area, I’d love to show you some other options too. Reach out and let me know what you’re looking for.
