I agree with nashvols that ROI is a total toss up. I'd pick your nabe based on amenities. It's my impression that West Meade has more of a hilly, forested feeling. You're close to West End / Vandy, but farther from the airport and probably farther from downtown since Crieve Hall is right next to I-65. Crieve Hall is more central, probably more urban feeling (near the highway, near 100 Oaks, near a large train yard). I think Crieve Hall is flatter too. I think West Meade has more cachet. There are streets in West Meade (not Belle Meade) with $1 million-plus homes, don't think that's the case in Crieve Hall.

Default Creive Hall homes

I looked hard at homes to buy in Creive Hall too. But I had a hard time paying $200,000 plus for a 2000 SF home. But you must remember, in Creive Hall you are paying for the location; which is excellent as some previous posters said. I still may buy there, but I would need a super deal to do so, and they do not come along too often.

Something West Meade may have going for it is new shopping along Charlotte at the West Nashville development. Some new housing further out on Charlotte. In the winter you will want better access to West End/Harding/US70S. Those hills get bad on the ice. For medical folks you have your choice of St Thomas & 3 hospitals in the West End/Vandy area. (Plenty of doctors & clinics).

Something holding Bellevue back is the empty mall with only Sears left open there. The other stores nearby the post office seem to be OK. THe soccer fie4ld seems to have recovered from last year's floods. West Meade is mostly a hilly & forested area. Traffic can get crazy in bad weather with few options to I-40 or US70S. Not sure what transit improvements can be done to the #3 bus route. I suspect we may get a BRT similar to Gallatin Road that may cut 10 minutes off a trip by reducing the number of bus stops on the route.

The West Meade mansion is very near the Harris Teeter store near the junction of US70S & Highway 100. You may find something you like adjacent to St Henry's?

Which one is more kid friendly? We just found out we are expecting our first one. I'm not so much concerned about schools because if we live in davidson county we'll probably go the private school route before or after elementary depending on area. I do agree with GWoodle about the snow and hill situation it can be a bear navigating through the winter months. I wish radnor lake would let you take your dogs on the trails like Percy & Edwin Warner Parks.
