Nashville Homebuyers Are Hunting For Greenway Access

I can’t disagree with the idea behind this new piece from The Tennessean, “Greenways attract Nashville home buyers, developers.”

Working every day with people looking to buy a home in the Nashville area, I hear this regularly — buyers want access to nature, walkability and bike-ability, and the aesthetic of greenways and parks close to home. As Nashville becomes a bigger, busier city — and more and more people relocate here from walkable neighborhoods in places like Brooklyn and Chicago — I don’t see the draw of greenway-adjacent homes waning.

So for this week’s Open House roundup, I’m going to pick out a few homes on the market in Middle Tennessee now that offer nearby greenway access.

First, the broader options:


Then, a few picks:

2616 A Airpark Dr

Nashville, TN 37206


If you haven’t wandered over to the Cornelia Fort Airpark area in East Nashville, I recommend stopping by for one of the Cornelia Fort Pickin’ Parties, a friendly neighborhood event that gets neighbors and featured performers out playing acoustic music at the historic former airport. (The next one is September 23.) It’s a beautiful setting, with wide expanses of grass and trees on the northern reaches of Shelby Park, with the greenway weaving through and down toward Shelby Bottoms Nature Center. This newer home is blocks from the Forrest Green trailhead, and offers lovely, leafy views in the backyard, mature trees as far as the eye can see. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

Nashville, TN 37214


Just over the east side of the river from East Nashville, the Sunny Acres area offers quick greenway access in Two Rivers Park, with the Cumberland River Pedestrian Bridge right there letting you stroll onto the East side. It’d be a bit of a haul to dining/shopping spots in East Nashville, but if more events start happening in the Cornelia Fort Airpark, this area will have killer by-foot access to that, with home prices that are considerably less and pieces of property that are considerably larger. Take this potential-filled mid-century home — lots of space, with almost 2500 square feet inside, sitting on a full, treelined acre. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

1511 B Gale Ln

Nashville, TN 37212


There’s a ton to love in the Belmont/12 South area for homebuyers looking for walkability — shops, restaurants, awesome park space. And this large, newer home (more than 2800 square feet, built in 2008) is a few blocks’ walk from barbecue, burgers, tacos, Sevier Park and more, with elegant, traditional design inside. Added bonus: greenway access is in the works right behind the property. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

3522 Murphy Road

Nashville, TN 37205


Among the major Greenways for Nashville projects in the works: the 440 Greenway, connecting Centennial Park to Elmington Park. This stunningly updated 1939 home in Historic Richland is already just blocks from the latter park, but with the greenway coming to pass, it’d also be just blocks from that scenic stroll and walkable access to so much more of the city. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.
