I'm not sure if it has been approved or not, but some developers are wanting to build a neighborhood in Rutherford County similar to Lenox Village.

The idea of being that close to neighbors isn't really my thing, but the traditional neighborhood design (TND) concept has me curious.

What are the thoughts on these areas, or Lenox Village in particular?

There are several of these new urbanism developments planned for Rutherford County. I tend to like them if they're done tastefully. A lot of them provide green space, walking trails, parks, and sometimes a retail component that you don't generally find in your typical subdivision. The houses in my neighborhood in Shelbyville are almost as close together as the ones in these developments, but without any of the aforementioned perks. Heck, I don't even have sidewalks or curbs. Given the choice I would choose a new urbanism development over a regular subdivision.

Question Condo in Lenox Village?

Hi everyone,

My boyfriend and I moved to Nashville from Orlando 3 months ago and are looking to buy something soon. Right now we live in Cane Ridge and like it (despite the Antioch zip code) so we are considering buying a condo or townhouse in Lenox Village which is closeby (on Nolensville between Old Hickory and Concord). Does anyone have insight about whether this is a good investment? Or would we be better off buying a house. We would like to buy something under 200K and as I said, like the location but are not opposed to other parts of town.

My job is in the Vanderbilt area, so close to Vandy would be a consideration but it seems much more expensive.

Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

You have a few other options to consider closer to I65 and on the other side of the Old Hickory traffic. This seems to be a big factor for appreciation in the area for condos. There is a new project coming up off of Edmondson Pike north of the library (w/Grarages), an older community that residents love - Brentwood Villa (up the hill across from Target, almost no OH traffic at all), and a few others that might be of interest.

You might also look into Concord Place off Concord near the new Publix (not far from where you are now, its sounds like), a few condos on Nolensville just south of the new Walmart and Old Hickory Blvd, or the homes across from Lenox Village in Bradford Hills.

Just a few of the choices that might allow you to see as much or more for your money. Still, I have had a number of clients who love the style and potential for community at Lenox Village.

Default A few more questions

Thanks for your reply, Kevin. I think I drove by the new development on Edmonson that you're talking about...Brighton Village, right? I imagine because it's the same builder that it will look very similar to Lenox.

I would like to be closer to I65. Now that school has started, my commute to Vanderbilt isn't ideal. I thought Orlando had bad traffic, but the areas where I have to drive here seem even worse! Brentwood Villa seems like it might be a good option.

Do you think I would be able to find anything close to Vanderbilt for under 200K? Any other areas that might be good? I have no kids, so school districts are not important. I just want to make a solid investment, not have a hellish commute, and live in a safe area that's not too far out of the way.

Thanks again!

hey blue...
you might want to look in the west end area...there are some new condos called ~the park at melrose~ and ~the centennial row~...
or even bellevue area....
Lennox is good...but you are right.. the traffic is hideous.

Default How much?

Thanks...have any idea what kind of prices we're looking at for those condos? Also, this is more of a traffic question that might be a dumb one. Is the traffic worse on 65 or 24 (heading north in the morning, south in the evening)? Or is it really pretty much the same no matter which way you take? Just trying to figure out an optimal route to work...

Have you looked at the Hermitage side of town? I live in Mount Juliet and two of my next door neighbors are nurses at Vanderbilt and love the commute. Tulip Cove is a new condo area also the district lofts downtown are nice. They are both similar price range as Lenox...

Default Info on Lenox Village?

Any thoughts on this area? From what I've seen online about it, looks like a newer concept area of retail & residences, like a village community....sounds good online but everything sounds good online. Anyone here actually live there, or first hand experience/knowledge about this area? What about the commute from this area to Vanderbilt? I've also read this would be a good 'resale value' area in a few years...thoughts?? Thanks...
