Your Home in East Nashville

East Nashville operates as a satellite city to Nashville as it has its own culture and overall vibe. Nashvillians flock to this area for dining, concerts, and an easy-going atmosphere. East Nashville is broken-up into over a dozen distinct areas most notably: 5-points, Historic Edgefield, East End, Eastwood Neighbors, East Hill, Lockeland Springs, Rolling Acres, Inglewood, Greenwood Neighbors, Cleveland Park, and McFerrin Park.

5-points

The epicenter of East Nashville, 5-points is a popular spot for locals to hang out. 5-points is a completely commercial district, however it is bordered by 3 neighborhoods: Historic Edgefield. East End, and Lockeland Springs. Some of East Nashville’s most popular destinations reside in 5-points: 3 Crow, Red Door Saloon, Drifters Barbecue, Bongo Java East, 5-Points Pizza, and more (see our favorites below.)

Historic Edgefield

Nashville’s first historic district. Here you will find elegant victorian style homes alongside new construction condominiums and apartments.

East End

East Nashville’s smallest and most desirable area. This tiny district borders 5-points, giving residents access to many local favorites. Most homes in the area are historic remodels reminiscent of popular builds for the Nashville middle class between 1880 and 1945. East End rarely has homes in the market, so if you find one, you better act quick.

On the afternoon of March 22nd, 1916 ‘the fire of the century’ brought East Nashville to its knees. Destroying over 600 homes and businesses, leaving 3,000 people homeless. In the matter of a day, East Nashville went from prosperity, to wasteland. For years it seemed as if East Nashville was gone for good. However, a wave of new residents saw promise, and began renovating the historic neighborhood. Growth didn’t happen overnight, it’s taken years for East Nashville to rise from the ashes. 100 years after the great fire, East Nashville is back and better than ever. Now East Nashville is popular on a local and national scale, thanks in part to it’s character and a little help from a show called Nashville.
