Default "what can you tell me about living in belle meade?"

well, it's for the wealthy. only.

visitors from "other" areas of Nashville make quaint, weekend forays into Percy Warner and Sportsman's to pretend they live here. To breathe the ether of '05. Yearning to live in Belle Meade. But when the parks and Sportsman's closes, the visitors disappear back to their corners of town....

Lexus cars, lobster lunches, and bottomless bank accounts. can't beat it......

In fact, they're so rich that they create there own threads instead of replying in the topic thread. All of the above is true though. Belle Meade puts Franklin/Brentwood to shame in terms of wealth. Buuuutttt...I've always been slow to brag when talking to people outside of Nashville. Bellemeade is big fish, small pond.

I would never move to Belle Meade if I wasn't from the South and old money. Even the country stars usually stay away from there. Its beautiful but if your wife isn't in the Junior League and your daughter isn't a debutante, you're going to have an issue. We're much happier in Brentwood.

There's no lake anywhere near Belle Meade, which means less chicks in bikinis, which means it is an inferior place to live when compared to Hendersonville.

Uh, actually there is a really nice lake only 4 or 5 minutes from Belle Meade. It's called Radnor Lake, and no, there are no "chicks in bikinis" or beer cans, but there are tons of trails around the natural lake and in the surrounding woods. There is no pollution or trash at all because people respect the park. It's a great place to take a girl, or your kids...It's on google maps....check it out... most people from Hendersonville would never know, & that's one additional reason it's great, but everyone should still check it out...

& 37205, you're a huge prick who obviously just spends his parents money, adding nothing to society.... & coming from a fellow 37205, please move away

I've been to Radnor Lake, and while I agree it's a great date spot and beautiful scenery, it still isn't a REAL lake suitable for skiing, boating, etc. I'm not saying Belle Meade isn't pretty, because it is, but come on, this is Tennessee, you can find natural beauty in any zip code. When it comes down to it, the only thing that makes that area more special than anywhere else in Nashville is the prestige of having that 37205 on your mailing address.
