Welcome to Germantown.
Food is a major theme over here. There seems to be a restaurant or cafe on every corner and the farmers markets are just a short stroll through the park away. Housing consistes of pretty little homes from the early 1900's to new built tall and skinnies through to the multi story condo's that line the main thoroughfares and side streets.
Germantown was registered as a National Historic District in 1979. Today it has grown into the new ‘food mecca’ of our fair city. Bordering Nashville’s Farmers Market, this 18 block square now holds within its revamped brick masonry twenty-two restaurants and cafes. That puts an eatery on more than every block!
Long-standing staples like Monell’s Restaurant allow guests to sample Nashville’s ‘meat & three’ family-style dinner at long, shared tables emphasizing the age-old Southern saying, “There are no such thing as strangers, just friends we haven’t met yet.” If you are looking for a more modern take on dinner, Germantown is also home to several other newly-opened and highly-rated, chef driven dining halls such as: Rolf and Daughters, Henrietta Red, LuLu Nashville, City House and 5th & Taylor.
Tucked in alongside the west bank of the Cumberland River and just north of Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park, Germantown has been developed as a mixed use, warehouse district utilizing existing historic buildings while adding customized modern additions. Contractors have done well to clean and restore the historic homes and industrial buildings; in some cases stripping down later add-ons such as vinyl and faux stone to allow the neighborhood’s architecture to speak for itself. Afterall, Germantown was in fact Nashville’s first residential subdivision and holds within its original framework some of our most ornate and sound foundations.
Speaking of sound, our local minor league baseball team, The Nashville Sounds, recently made their home base right next door to this in-demand neighborhood, giving residents a home team advantage to seasonal games and family fun!
Celebrated for its pedestrian friendly streets, Germantown is the neighborhood to live in if you are looking for a city vibe. The Flats at Taylor Place, Peyton Stakes Luxury Apartments, Broadstone Germantown Apartments, Carillon Apartments, Vista Germantown, Werthan Mills Lofts, Evergreen at Werthan, Station Lofts and Morgan Park Place East are all Multifamily Residences that share this close-knit neighborhood.
If your dream home is in the heart of a progressive, mix-use neighborhood with an inner-city energy, you may need to look no further than historic ’trendy' Germantown.
