Germantown is a small historic community nestled right up to downtown- so close, in fact, that most of the homes and condos in this area are known to have unparalleled views of downtown Nashville. For those who desire old-world homes, proximity to some of Nashville's best restaurants, and ease of access to downtown, this area simply can't be beat. Many of the historic homes feature antique custom brickwork, wraparound porches, and old-growth trees, and the area itself leaves nothing to be desired. German residents can buy most of their groceries at the local Farmer's Market, which is located in the area, or forget the car altogether and walk to coffee shops, antique shops, restaurants, and boutique retailers.

Germantown is Nashville’s oldest neighborhood- its first suburb, in fact- and is so named because the community was primarily German. The vast majority of the homes are Victorian or pre-Victorian, and most have seen recent renovations. That said, there are also new-construction properties in the area, particularly townhomes and condos, each made to provide top-notch amenities. The area takes great pride in its green spaces as well, and has been designated a city Arboretum by the Nashville Tree Foundation. And many of the more than 100 species of old-growth tree found in Germantown are flowering varieties, making for a lovely vista in almost every season.
This Nashville neighborhood boasts almost no end of things to do, and houses many of the city's most accoladed restaurants. From the pristine Germantown cafe, with its lavish outdoor seating and skyline views of downtown, to historic Monell's family-style pass-the-plate dinners, or the inventive meals of the Mad Platter, this is an area which celebrates its historic roots through cuisine as much as architecture. For those wanting to preserve their equity, Germantown real estate is definitely the way to go.
Another benefit to living in Germantown is that it is adjacent to many of Nashville's most upscale communities, including the Gulch and Midtown. Germantown also offers quick access to the interstate, with its two major thoroughfares, Rosa Parks and Jefferson, both offering quick connections to the Nashville interstate loop.

Morgan Park is the only park in Germantown and many of the locals use it for dog-walking and maybe to have a game of soccer, because of the industrialized area it is in it does need a bit more tender and loving care.

The park itself does feature a safe and playable soccer field and also 12 picnic tables that are in shaded areas for the summer.
There are two ways to get from Germantown to the Airport, depending on the traffic, you could cut your journey times almost in half by taking a lesser known road, usually if you take Interstate-40-East you will find yourself at the airport rather quickly as its only under 10 miles, that being said, you will get there quickly if there is no traffic to battle on your way. Taking Murfreesboro road rather than more popular thoroughfares, you would get to Nashville International in just shy of 20 minutes. Fisk University is a pretty walkable distance of just 1.5 miles so you don't have to worry about traveling to far. Vanderbilt and Belmont are within a 10-15 mnute drive pending the time of day.
