1. comfy commute to the airport I fly ALLOT
2. comfy commute to the city....
3. Planning on starting a family, so schools etc..
4. pleasant neighbourhood re :young family's
5. price range of $150,000 / $220,000

All in all I just need some county maybe town starter points as it's a big map allot of names and I never am sure which to check!

That's a tough call given all your needs and wants.

I'll throw out Mt. Juliet as a possibility.

If your budget were more, I might suggest Brentwood; but that's going to be way out of your price range. There is an area that some people call "Brentioch" (you won't find that on a map) that's between Brentwood and Antioch that could be a possibility. Part of that area is still in Williamson County, I believe.

I'll second the Mt. Juliet recommendation since you want the easier commute to the airport.

Mt. Juliet is definitely where I would look, and Hermitage and Old Hickory...you might check out Donelson as well...just look into the schools there (I'm not familiar with them).

There may be some smaller newer homes in the Brentioch area for that price but I know in my subdivision in that area the Prices range from $325,000 for the ranchtype model and up to the Mid $400,000 for the larger models.
You may get $200,000 in some larger models off Nolenville Rd, which have Brentwood Addresses but they are in Davidson county with Davidson county schools. My subdivision is off of Holt/Edmonson but if you go a little further down hold Dress has built some smaller brick homes. I've seen a Forclosure sale in that area, so some may be willing to sell for less.
I've met tons of people from England here.
