It’s always enlightening to see the view of our city from an outside perspective. According to The Wall Street Journal this week, Nashville’s “Newest Destination Neighborhood,” Germantown, is well on the rise.

Most locals have seen Germantown as a boom neighborhood in a boom town for a good while now. But there’s something to be taken from the WSJ’s loving wander through this historic, restaurant- and shop-stocked corner of the city: There’s a point where up-and-coming neighborhoods feel up-and-come to us, and then there’s a point where they’ve blossomed so much, writers a thousand miles away can’t help but take notice.

I’m a huge, huge fan of Germantown, and if you keep up with local business news, it’s looking like it’ll only get more exciting in the years to come, with new event spaces and restaurants and mixed-use developments on the way in a flurry.

With Germantown in the Wall Street spotlight, it felt like this week’s Open Houses roundup should give a snapshot of what’s on the market in our newest "destination."

First, the broader picture:


Then, some Germantown Open Houses:

1501 4Th Ave N Unit 101

Nashville, TN 37208


Homeowners who prefer urban living — plush condo communities with big amenities, walkable surroundings, total lack of yardwork — do well in Germantown, since it’s already well-stocked with buildings that fit the bill, and many more are in the works too. This 2-bed, 2-bath unit is brand new, steps from some of the neighborhood’s best eating (like 5th & Taylor, Rolf and Daughters and City House) and drenched with sunlight, with an airy open plan and impeccable finishes (check the kitchen — home chefs will be pleased). Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

1813 B 5th Ave N

Nashville, TN 37208


This new attached home has a bunch if bonuses in busy Germantown: a cool office nook for you work-from-homers, a detached garage for easy parking, balcony and deck overlooking a sweet (but not tough to maintain) yard and more. The rest of the space is picture-perfect for what buyers are tending to want in new construction: great open flow, hardwoods, high-end finishes and classic details that bring in the charm. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

1314 7Th Ave

Nashville, TN 37208


Germantown’s known for spectacular historic homes, and at first glance, you’d be forgiven for thinking this 4-bed, 2 1/2-bath property was a turn-of-the-century build. It’s actually newer — built in 2001 — but from the facade to the fireplace and finishes, it pays beautiful homage to the area’s older homes. (But you get the benefit of large rooms and closets.) Click through to the garage with apartment up top — if you’re in need of an in-law suite or work-at-home space, this is just as decked-out as the main house. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

Thinking about exploring Germantown as you hunt for a new home in Nashville? I’d love to help you track down your dream home — reach out and tell me about what you need!
