South Nashville – 37211 is the zip code that encompasses most of South Nashville. It offers many pocket neighborhoods, some that combine the convenience of Crieve Hall with the affordability of Antioch.
Our favorite ‘hood to the south is Woodbine. Woodbine and the communities like Flatrock that are immediately adjacent straddle the areas near the intersection of Thompson Lane and Nolensville Pike. This area used to be perfect for first-time buyers, but prices have risen over the last half-decade to compete with other areas in our urban core, though you can still find the occasional rehab project ready for some vision and elbow grease.
Whispering Hills is shaped by the triangle of Edmonson Pike, Nolensville Rd., and McMurray Drive. Whispering Hills offers mainly mid-century brick construction. Quality public schools and mid-range affordability help this neighborhood score highly with young families.
Slightly to the south, the Villages of Brentwood offers homes and townhomes mainly constructed in the 1980s. These homes may offer slightly more modern kitchens and baths, but the lots tend to be quite small. If you have the need to be near Brentwood or Maryland Farms but want to be careful with your mortgage budget, this section of “Brentioch” might work well for you.
Haywood Hills is another small neighborhood between Nolensville Rd. and I-24 in the 37211 zip code that offers small brick ranch-style homes at mid-range prices.
Finally, don’t forget to check out the homes, townhomes, and apartments at Lenox Village, Davidson County’s largest planned unit development featuring shops, schools, and amenities galore in a maintenance-free cottage style.
