If you’re looking for a neighborhood that combines history and scenery, Belle Meade in the Southwestern portion of Greater Nashville may be your calling. With its rolling hills, larger home plots, and stately buildings, it’s the perfect picture of Southern Elegance – appropriate, since this neighborhood was named for the well-known Belle Meade Plantation. Along with beautiful homes, the neighborhood’s proximity to the 2,600 acre Percy Warner and Edwin Warner parks makes the area feel like a secluded estate miles away from town. But don’t be fooled, this quiet, residential area is just minutes from the hustle and bustle of midtown, downtown, and the Green Hills area.

If you’re hoping to plant roots in Belle Meade, get ready to empty your wallet – this kind of luxury in such a prime location comes at a cost. Homes here are some of the priciest in the state, with costs soaring well above the million mark.
