East Nashville Real Estate

The extremely popular community of East Nashville is located immediately east of downtown and is cradled in the southern bend of the Cumberland River. This area is home to dozens of independent restaurants, businesses, art spaces, and so much more, it’s easy to see why it is one of the most beloved areas of the city. Residents from across Nashville enjoy many of East Nashville’s signature local events, including the Tomato Art Festival, East Nashville Beer Festival, and the Hot Chicken Festival.

East Nashville encompasses the neighborhoods of Historic Edgefield, Shelby Hills, Maxwell, McFerrin Park, Lockeland Springs, Greenwood, Eastwood, East Hill, Rolling Acres, Rosebank, and Inglewood, each with their own personality and unique flavor. From the creative hustle and bustle of Five Points in East End, to the quietest streets in fair Rosebank, to the stately homes in Lockeland Springs and the family-friendly blocks in Inglewood, there is something for every speed of life in East Nashville.

This area is also home to a diverse selection of housing types, including single family and multi-family units, condominiums, row houses, townhomes, and apartments for lease and purchase. There are large, gorgeous Victorian homes that have been turned into multiple apartments, some of the finest examples of craftsman-style bungalows in the city, ultra-modern apartments and condos, charming Tudor-style cottages, and so, so much more! Architecturally speaking, East Nashville is possibly the most impressive area of town for variety of choices.

To say that this area is popular is an understatement! Houses continue to sell quickly in brisk bidding. Many older homes have been remodeled to include the best in today’s modern amenities, but there are still deals to be had in homes that have not yet been updated, which can be often be found a few minutes away from downtown in Inglewood, as the wave of East Nashville excitement flowed from the Titans’ stadium eastward.
