12th South/Hillsboro Village/Belmont

The 12 South, Belmont and Hillsboro Village areas are just south of downtown. Grouped in the same general vicinity, these three neighborhoods are some of Nashville's most popular places to live, dine and play. Eclectic, vibrant and hip, these communities all boast a friendly atmosphere with plenty to do. And undeniably, they appeal to those who enjoy proximity downtown but want an urban neighborhood feel.

In the 12 South neighborhood you'll find art galleries, boutiques and music stores in addition to an array of popular restaurants within walking distance. Nashvillians are no strangers to this corner of town, which is home to Sevier Park.

The Hillsboro Village and Belmont neighborhoods also boast shops, boutiques and restaurants. But the four block radius of Hillsboro Village certainly is a stand-out community of its own. On any given day, you'll find residents, visitors and other walks of life around nearby Vanderbilt and Belmont Universities. That makes for top-notch people watching.

As this area has grown and undergone changes in recent years, so has its residential real estate options. This area continues to draw first-time homebuyers and veteran homebuyers alike. In addition to new construction, options include ranches and restored homes featuring distinct architecture.
