East Nashville (continued)
Though not technically a neighborhood, 5-Points seems to define East Nashville’s style and culture. Located on a crazy junction of several streets and spreading out to a few other crazy junctions a block away in other directions, 5-Points is a compact, easy-to-walk hotspot filled with some of the city’s most popular bars and restaurants. You’ll find 3 Crow Bar, PizzeReal, Red Door Saloon, Bongo Java East, Beyond the Edge Bar and Grill, Batter’d and Fried Boston Seafood House, 5-Points Pizza, Drifters Barbecue, and the new Tenn Sixteen Food & Drink Co. Just down the street, a wide variety of clothing and gift shops sell trendy fashions, including Goodbuy Girls, Hello Boys, and Alegria. From this vibrant center, the whole of East Nashville extends into three different zip codes and several different neighborhoods.
Located closest to downtown, Historic Edgefield offers stately homes in the Victorian style. Many have been converted to apartments or condos, but several still remain as single-family dwellings. While most of the area is residential, you will find a few small surprises, such as a Fat Bottom Brewery bordering one side of the neighborhood and the bars and restaurants of 5-Points at another end. Beautiful and charming, this area features some of the most expensive East Nashville homes.
Also bordered by the trendy 5-Points area, East End is one of the most popular of the East Nashville neighborhoods. With most homes within walking distance of Batter’d and Fried, 3 Crow Bar, and 5-Points Pizza, young professionals flock to the area. Houses are historic, though many have been remodeled and refurbished to include modern décor. This is also the smallest of the neighborhoods, and homes rarely hit the market. After moving in, no one wants to leave.
Also bordered by 5-Points, this neighborhood covers a larger area with plenty more residences. Other borders include Gallatin Pike and Shelby Park. You’ll find a wide variety of home, from historic cottages and Victorians to sleek condos, as well as some of the small businesses East Nashville is known for. Hello Boys, Goodbuy Girls, and Alegria all call Lockeland Springs home.
Another of the more popular East Nashville neighorhoods, Eastwood Neighbors is home to hotspots like Ugly Mugs and Rosepepper Cantina. Homes in this area are largely adorable cottages or Tudor styles, though some surprising log cabins or Victorians are also interspersed. Bordered by Gallatin Pike and Porter Road, everything is convenient to residents of this neighborhood.
Overlooking Shelby Park, Rolling Acres might be considered one of the prettiest areas of East Nashville. With its quirky residents, it could also be labeled one of the most unique. You’ll find plenty of quaint homes, but some surprising Spanish-style haciendas are also spread about. Of course, a neighborhood so close to the park is always desirable, so homes are often snatched up quickly here.
This rapidly growing neighborhood is located to the north of East Nashville’s other neighborhoods, bordered by Gallatin Pike on one side, Briley Parkway to the north, and the river to the east. The homes in this area are a bit newer, with most built after 1920. You’ll also find a large selection of ranch-style homes, which have been remodeled and updated with beautiful results. The area is popular for Riverside Village, where you’ll enjoy Mike’s Ice Cream, Watanabe, Mitchell’s Deli, and Village Pub and Beer Garden.
East Nashville has now sprawled across Gallatin Pike. East Hill is home to plenty of cute homes, and the time to buy is now. Many of the cottages are being flipped, but there are some from which to choose. New businesses are adding to the hip profile of this area, including the Village Pub’s sister bar, The Hop Stop. Bordered by Trinity Lane and Ellington Parkway, the area is convenient to just about everything you love in East Nashville.
Once famous for only the lunch hotspot Mas Tacos, this area is really beginning to thrive. Thanks to The Pharmacy and Holland House, the neighborhood has experienced a real facelift. Many of the homes have been remodeled for bright, beautiful residences that appeal to young professionals. The easy access to Ellington Parkway makes it perfect for commuters.
In the midst of serious rejuvenation, this area of East Nashville, along with the southern neighbor of McFerrin Park, is the next big thing. Property is still very affordable, so the amount of house you can get so close to the city is amazing. These adorable cottages won’t be inexpensive for long, as prices per square foot are already on the rise.
Everywhere you turn in this neighborhood, you’ll see homes being flipped or new construction going up. Quickly becoming one of East Nashville’s most sought after neighborhoods, McFerrin Park still enjoys affordable property prices. Many of the houses have stunning views of downtown from upstairs windows, and fireworks for every occasion are visible from front yards. If you’re hoping to find charming Victorians, craftsman-style bungalows, and beautiful Tudors, this is the neighborhood for you.
