When you think about the name “Nations” the word diversity quickly follows, and the same goes with the Nations neighborhood in Nashville.  Our next stop on our neighborhood tour will find you variety in every sense of the word. The nine-block stretch of 51st Avenue North between Charlotte Avenue and Centennial Boulevard just passed Coco’s Italian Market, and you’ve arrived.  The Nations is definitely an up and coming place to live and as the temperatures drop, the real estate here is only getting hotter.

If you’re visiting this side of town, the locals will tell you not to miss out on Hattie B’s to snag a bite of Nashville’s famous hot chicken.  You may want to quench your thirst at the Pennington Distillery, formally Speakeasy Spirits and bar hop right on over to Fat Bottom Brewing Company, an authentic tap room to enjoy specialty ales, seasonal craft brews, and the classic American favorites.  This great place to hang with your friends and take advantage of 2 for 1 deals during the yard hop. The growth in unique eateries and shops to pop in to is evident on every corner.

You can find trendy, but affordable fashion at the Mill, the first retail shop on the area located at the corner of 51st and Illinois owned by two fun and talented sisters, Allie and Lauren.  Also, in this eclectic nook of town, you’ll want to check out Cool Stuff, Weird Things, a place for vintage antiques, furniture, décor, clothes, records, customized metal signs, and so much more. It’s definitely and experience, and you’re sure to find a treasure for yourself or a gift for a friend. Are you looking for the perfect chair for your reading nook, or maybe need a bigger table in your kitchen for your house warming party, you can find one of a kind for custom made furniture at Ausden Inc.

With easy access to I-40, the Nations provides future home buyers with affordable housing options among its side walked streets.  It’s rapidly growing, attracting young professionals and families who are drawn to the neighborhood’s proximity to downtown with quaint suburbia feel. Native Nashvillians who are searching for diversity in homes, eateries, and things to do—the Nations also includes a heavy mix of newcomers as well. You’ll see lots of new construction and “coming soon” signs among the modern style architecture, clean lines, and thin vertical homes in Pleasantville style rows.  Members of this family friendly community can enjoy sweating it out in their free time at Barre Amped, Studio 51st, or Music City Boxing classes then getting a caffeine boost at Frothy Monkey—and they serve brunch until 5pm!

Homeowners in the Nations continue to show a lot of pride in their neighborhood and they are for sure loving what the organic, authentic growth in this area is doing for the value of their homes. You can join the porch party in the Nations neighborhood by taking advantage of some great real estate offers, but you better get to it. Just like a bucket of hot chicken, these homes wont be sitting empty for long.
