Last week, I shared a bit about a study that included Donelson among the nation’s Top 20 residential zip codes.

It was a little surprising, what with being a national rundown, but not totally surprising — Nashville real estate remains hugely desirable, and Donelson’s been on the rise for a good while now.

Among the area's perks: proximity to East Nashville, downtown and the Interstates, mix of price points and house styles (from cute mid-century ranches to large new construction), and, compared to many convenient parts of Nashville, relative affordability.

So, since we’re in the middle of Donelson’s time to shine, I’ll focus this week’s Open House post on homes in that area.

First, wider options:


Then, my Donelson-area picks:

{mls: 1758330}

3204 Blackwood Dr

Nashville, TN 37214


Donelson has long been a treasure trove of sweet, well-kept brick ranches, at price points that’ve helped turn many Nashville renters into homeowners. This well-kept home, in the Larchwood area, is a great example. It’s not a midcentury build (1985), but it does have similar single-level appeal, with 3 beds and 2 baths over 1200 square feet at under $180K asking. Extra bonuses: vaulted ceilings, a cute deck and large yard. Open Sunday 1 to 4 p.m.

876 Norwalk Dr

Nashville, TN 37214


Big family/not-huge budget? This home is just shy of 2900 square feet, and has 6 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. But don’t let the reasonable asking price fool you: It’s not even a fixer-upper — everything from the large kitchen to the bedrooms looks really well kept. (And big respect for the Vols love right inside the front door, too.) Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

{mls: 1767174}

104 Bluefield Sq

Nashville, TN 37214


Bluefields is arguably the most desired part of Donelson — particularly when it comes to its historic homes. Accordingly, property there isn't always so easy to find. This 2,000-plus-square-foot ranch was built in 1982, but you do have the benefit of that tight-knit community and its lush green surroundings, with a beautiful backyard, in-ground pool and your home bar, already set up and ready to go. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

{mls: 1767665}

116 Lake Point Ct

Nashville, TN 37214


If you’re a big-family-home househunter and you can up the budget just a little bit, getting more than 3,000 square feet of really well-appointed home for just over $300K is totally doable around here. A 4-bed, 2 1/2-bath home built in 2006, this one has lots of nice details (granite countertops, open kitchen, huge bonus room), and it’s really close to Percy Priest lake, too. Open Sunday, 2 to 4 p.m.

Thinking about settling down in Donelson? Want to explore some other parts of Nashville? I’d love to help you find the right home in the right area — give me a call or send me an email, and tell me about what you’re looking for.
