Location Location Location – Dodging the Nashville Gridlock

Nashville, TN is BOOMING!

The BOOM is exciting, but it brings with it a sizable number of growing pains the most often of which mentioned is GRIDLOCK!

As the city has grown, the urban areas have been the first to become more dense as developers and builders resort to creative “In-Fill” construction (AKA “Tall Skinnies”). They buy a 60 year old house on a city lot, raze it, and replace it with two very skinny multi-story (at least 3) abodes.

We Native Nashvillians don’t get it.

Why would anyone want to live in a house with all those stairs, minuscule yards, and near zero elbow room from their neighbors?

While we don’t get it, we do understand the age old truth as report by Albert Naggar, who said his grandfather, the late LordHarold Samuel, a real estate tycoon in Britain, coined the expression: ‘There are three things that matter in property: location, location, location …”

Most people desire convenience to get to the places they want to go with minimum hassle . . . and best if by foot. I’ve never heard anyone say that they chose to live in that suburb because they rather enjoy the 45 minute commute that is sometimes an hour and a half.

So . . . In Nashville, TN, these houses in quaint neighborhoods “close in” to the core of downtown with easy access to all the Interstates, on reasonably sized lots with appropriate privacy and tranquility are getting sparse at ANY price.

Chad Smith – REALTOR Extraordinaire (One of the Vital Few Members of Pareto Realty) – is offering for sale this beautifully updated, traditional home in the oh-so-perfect Close-in West Nashville location nestle between Historic Richland and the estates of Green Hills (Bowling, Golf Club, Hampton, Whitworth).

3600 Bellwood Avenue is in the exact center of this map.  

 I mean it when I say PERFECT – SO convenient to Green Hills, Interstates, Downtown, Parks, Schools, Shopping, Vanderbilt, Lipscomb, Belmont . . . THIS house is in the CENTER of the HUB of Nashville. I must qualify myself as an “Expert” regarding this location because the house I grew up in on Cantrell Avenue is 4 blocks away from 3600 Bellwood. This was (and still is) the quintessential established neighborhood in West Nashville. As a kid, I played with friends in the Richland Country Club golf course (Now Whitworth), and have fond memories of walking to school (Woodmont Elementary and Montgomery Bell Academy) and the Jim Dandy market at the Belle Meade Plaza.
I asked Chad to send me a brief blurb about the house:
List price: $974,900 – 4 bedrooms – 3 full baths – 1 half bath – Click this link for all the details and more pictures
Immaculate renovation/restoration of this 1940s residence with attention given to every detail. This home provides all of the modern amenities, yet retains the charm and character of its era.
