Located in-between Green Hills and Downtown, the Hillsboro area offers conveniences of modern day living with an old-school charm. Like many Nashville communities, Hillsboro Village is rich in history. Developers began eyeing this area in 1901, after the surrounding streets were split into subdivisions around 1890. By 1920 Hillsboro Village was a bustling center of commerce for the city. Throughout the decades, it has remained a staple for Nashvillians. Nearly 100 years later, many of the original 1920 buildings are still standing.
Hillsboro Village is by no means stuck in the past. Many hip restaurants, shops, and cafe’s are spread throughout. It’s not uncommon to run across some country music stars, actors, and actresses in Pancake Pantry, Fido Café, Jackson’s or the Belcourt Theatre. Close proximity to Belmont and Vanderbilt contribute to the community’s vibrant feel. Local hotspots accrue “regulars,” students find their favorite study spots, and recent grads continue to enjoy the neighborhood as young professionals.
Real Estate options in the area are a mix of older home types such as 20th century bungalows, foursquares, restored cottages, and tudors. You will also find new construction homes spread throughout. Belmont/Hillsboro Village’s close proximity to local universities, and Nashville favorites make it a desirable place to live.
