According to a new story in The Tennessean, “Germantown and its next-door neighbor Salemtown are having an ‘it’ moment after several years of steady growth.” No surprise to locals, certainly, who’ve been watching that corner north of downtown get more and more stacked with great restaurants, shops and other stuff to do, while it welcomed a seemingly nonstop stream of new residential buildings.

Just a little taste of what Germantown’s seen over the past few months:

And there’s lots more coming…

Add all that up, and I doubt Germantown’s “it” moment is too brief of a moment.

All that fun stuff making you feel drawn to dwelling in walkable, historic but increasingly modern Germantown? Here’s a quick look at the kind of homes you’ll find there (with properties that are on the market now):

Updated historic charmers

1218 7TH AVE. N. 



Built in 1900 and with all the awesome details to show it — soaring 11-foot ceilings, pocket doors, transom windows, intricate wood detail, so much more. But also totally updated, and totally tasteful. Extra bonus: the carriage house with a studio apartment on the property.

Brand new builds with historic design influences

1810A 7TH AVE. N. 



Victorian architecture inspired the design of this new home — ornate trim, stacked decks — but it and its nearby sisters (including 1810B 7th Ave. N., 1812A 7th Ave. N and 1812B 7th Ave. N.) are full of contemporary sleekness, too. A little bit of San Francisco in the exterior, lots of light, bright and clean in the interior.

Modern and eco-friendly new construction

{mls: 1657731}

1813B 3RD AVE. N.



A sleek cottage with 2 beds, 2 baths, 1,145 square feet of space and modern design touches, like stained concrete floors and cool vertical windows.

Thinking about setting up shop in “it moment” Germantown or adjacent Salemtown? We’d love to help you find the perfect place. Reach out!
