My husband was down in Nashville this week looking around as we may be moving down there in the near future. He loved it down there! He will be commuting to the Vanderbilt medical center so he was shown Brentwood and Franklin. we have done some of our own research and was wondering if Nolensville is an option. Is it just not convenient to the highways? We have 2 children 6, and 1 y/o. We are also considering Hendersonville. Our price range is 250-350. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. We are moving from NH, my husband currently commutes 1-2 hours EACH WAY into Boston. We need to GET OUT! :-)

Thanks soooo much for all your help!

It would be a bit of a long commute, but not too bad if traffic is moving. It's not that far from Nolensville to I-24 or I-65 but those highways carry a lot of traffic.

Another option might be Kingston Springs, or posssibly even Pleasant View or Cooperstown.

If you're considering private schools for the kids, then there are other places I can suggest. And frankly, the Metro Nashville elementary schools in the nicer areas are generally okay; it's the high schools that are somewhat iffy. In that case you could look at Bellevue, West Meade, maybe Green Hills or Hillwood ($250-350k is on the low side in those areas). The commute from the west to Vanderbilt is probably the easiest in town. I live in Bellevue and used to work very near Vandy; I came in a little early and left a little early and my commute wasn't bad (30 minutes or so in the afternoon).

By the way, I wasn't ruling out Franklin or Hendersonville for you; just giving you some more options. Brentwood probably is out of the question. I'm not sure you can find a house in Brentwood for $350k. Maybe though. The real estate people here can answer that better than I can.

Nolensville is an option and I think possibly Goodlettsville. The schools are good in both places. Goodlettsville is a bit more rural than Hendersonville, but you are still close to the lake if water is important.

If you do decide on Nolensville, the following developments are in the Williamson County portion and have homes in the price range you indicated: Bent Creek, Winterset Woods, Stonebrook, Ballenger Farms, Silver Stream. If you need more information just email me.

Also Dritterb, if you want Williamson County because of the schools there are many other options in your price range. It appears three of the major components in your decision are price, schools, and travel time to Vanderbilt. Feedback that you get on this board will help as people here are generally fairly knowledgable about the area, although some may be a little biased. I would also suggest you research the schools on the internet and a realtor could be of help to you.

Default nolensville is better

The Commute from Hendersonville will be a complete nightmare!!!! Nolensville is out there but is a nice safe area with good schools. I will tell you that nolensville is growing. Tons of new stores and reasturants are going up in that area every month!!! Before too long it will be its own little-big community. Just trust me when i say that the commute from north of nashville into town is far worse that from the south going north!!

Default Brenthaven

There is a neighborhood in brentwood called Brenthaven. It is one of the oldest ones around. Nice older homes, built in the 70's-80's. Because of that they tend to run less in cost then the new construction. The area is totally family friendly, very close to Crockett Park, the Cool Springs mall area. The only problem you might encounter is some major redecorating needs..lol. A lot of the houses have had the same owners since the 70's You can find a house in Brentwood for less then 350K ..they are there, just make your realtor do their work!!!
