Best Neighborhoods: East Nashville

One of the city’s final frontiers for truly affordable, single family homes.

East Nashville

What was once considered a rough part of town has very quickly turned into a hot market. First and foremost, it’s one of the city’s final frontiers for truly affordable, single family homes. The area is actually made up of several small mini-hoods like East End, Lockeland Springs, and Historic Edgefield, which might only be a few blocks long and wide. (Within those, realtors can pinpoint the more desirable streets.)

Renovations are happening on just about every block, but most homeowners, especially within Lockeland Springs and East End, can easily find renovated 2,000-square foot cottages on small lots that are landscaped to the edges, making the most of each cozy footprint. Residents here run from creative types in rentals to young families in starter homes, all of whom are finding a tight-knit community and one of Nashville’s fastest-growing food-and-drink scenes.
