There is no doubt that one of Nashville’s first suburbs, Germantown, is quickly becoming a desired destination for homeowners and visitors alike. The historic district was given its name as a result of the influx of German immigrants in the mid nineteenth-century and is now home to some of Nashville’s most unique architecture. The concentration of Victorian style buildings and homes make for a quaint get-a-way just minutes from the city.
The gorgeous tree-lined streets adds to this picturesque landscape . In fact, the area has been recognized as a city arboretum by the Nashville Tree Foundation due to its diverse foliage. The district is said to be home to more than 100 species of trees.
Beyond the charming residential areas, this beautiful and somewhat quieter extension of our bustling Music City boasts a thriving collection of unique community jewels, which includes a diverse lineup of restaurants, shops, salons, yoga and health studios.
Rent a bike at Nashville’s B Station conveniently located on Monroe Street and explore Nashville’s network of bikeways and greenways. Grab a coffee and Crêpe at Red Bicycle Coffee & Crepes on a morning stroll. Or sit down for a unique dinner experience with a family style dining option that allows you to meet your neighbors at Monell’s.
Looking for a great meal and a drink? Butchertown Hall, one of Germantown’s fawned over restaurant additions, has received much praise and attracts people from all over the city as it is the district’s first ‘biergarten’ in over 100 years.
Nashville’s year round Farmer’s Market is a weekend favorite for residents and visitors looking for local produce and to view the work of local artisans. The market’s North and South farm sheds have the capacity to hold up to 100 artisans and farmers. The adjacent 19-acre plaza at Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park is a great place to take the family for a weekend picnic, boasting unique views of it’s name-sake, The Capitol building, and the famed Nashville Skyline.
Community activities are paramount in this neighborhood. Germantown hosts Nashville’s annual Oktoberfest festival and is also home to the Nashville Jazz Workshop, The Actor’s Bridge Studio, numerous walking tours and neighborhood soup-a-thons. And of course, the new Nashville Sounds stadium at First Tennessee Park brings a new dynamic to the neighborhood, where baseball fans can watch the Minor League team or enjoy food, drinks and games at The Band Box.
Why wouldn’t you want to call this place home? Some of Nashville’s most desired homes can be found within this historical district. Residential living options range from single-family homes to chic renovated urban lofts. Germantown is most certainly a desired destination for all ages!
