I've also read this would be a good 'resale value' area in a few years...thoughts?? Thanks...
I was just in Lenox village not even a day ago. It is built on the concept of new urbanism I think you would be happy there, its new, pretty, densely populated. As for Vanderbilt to lenox, we have a home around the corner from Lenox Village. Took us about 20 minutes or so during non rush our traffic. During rush hour is another thing though.

Well, I wouldn't want to commute from Lenox Village to Vandy, 65N south of Nashville gets pretty crowded and it's a pretty decent distance just to get from LV to 65. I looked at Lenox Village when looking for a house and a large concern was what would happen when the bad elements of Antioch decide to do some shopping over there, but I do know people who live there and like it, just wasn't for me...I bought a 2300 sqft house off Hwy 100 in Bellevue for just a little more than I saw some of those LV condo/townhomes going for. I'm 25 minutes from CoolSprings, and offpeak hrs it takes me 15 min to get to West End/440(never driven that way during peak because I work in Franklin), so this area might be an option for you if you work at Vandy and looking for a reasonably priced home in a low crime area. I'm in Poplar Creek Estates.

Default Lenox Village?

What is the deal with Lenox Village? Is it a sketchy place to live?

Why would you think that? I've never heard that before.

I live in Lenox Village and it is not sketchy at all. While I do not partake in the neighborhood activities like a lot of my neighbors do, it is a very nice place to live. The way it has been developed has made it very friendly for pedestrians, bikers, and children. They are building a shopping center in the neighborhood (we will see if this is successful or not long term, I am a bit pestimistic on this one). Currently they have a salon, dentist, cafe, pie in the sky pizza, computer repair shop, and a few other stores as well. Across from Nolensville Rd, you have a new Mexican restaurant which is decent, and fairly new gas station, great clips, etc.

Prices have been booming here and are just now starting to slow down due to the current housing market issues.

They have condos, 2bdrm and 3bdrm townhouses, and single family homes.

If you are a small business owner, they even have some property where you can live above your store which I think it pretty cool.

I will say that the quality of Regent Homes construction is not the best. We have had to use the warranty 3 or 4 times already in the last year. I think that has a lot to do with how fast they put these units up.

I will say as a driver, you will have to keep a closer look for pedestrians here than most neighborhoods. It seems that no matter what time of day you come/leave home, there are people biking, walking, and running.

Also if you have older elementary children, you may want to look to the neighborhood across from Nolensville called Bradford Hills. My 9 year old son doesn't care for Lenox Village too much because it is mostly the elderly and young couples who have no children yet or have babies. His grandparents live in Bradford Hills and he finds all kinds of children to play with over in that neighborhood.

Okay I've rambled on long enough now.

Thanks. I was just curious about it. I pass by it all the time, but did not know what to think.

Default Great shoppes on Lenox Village Drive not sketchie!

I live in Lenox Village and it's not sketchie at all. I go to the Chiropractor (Hendon Chiropractic) who is outstanding, buy gifts from a unique cool store called The Village Peddler, get facials at Pure Day Spa (my friend goes and get's her nails done and loves that place) and have my insurance with Allstate on Lenox Village Drive, my Dentist is also here (Lenox Village Dentistry) and use the Sprint store as well and have all of my Dry Cleaning done at the cleaners. It's great living so close to everything. If my barber would move here, I would never leave!

WOW! It's sounds like an ideal place to live. One day when I am done working and decide I no longer want to care for a house, I would like to move to a condo in Nashville and live in a walkable area. You guys can walk to all these things? Gift shop, Day Spa etc?
