Located just 13 miles southwest of Downtown Nashville is the charming community Bellevue. This especially friendly environment and family oriented small town feeling within a city attracts families to settle down and call this their home.
Bellevue is conveniently located off of Highway 100, Highway 70, and Interstate 40. Easy access to other Nashville areas that border Bellevue and a fast commute to the heart of the city has caused a continual increase of value in homes as more buyers begin to look in the area without paying downtown prices. The median cost of a single-family home in Bellevue is $500,000 with a median of 2524 sqft. A townhome’s median cost for the area is $322,200 with a median of 1585 sq ft.
During the 1950s, Bellevue was a small, tight-knit community which was focused on serving nearby farms. The town of Bellevue originated along the railroad tracks near the Harpeth River and had only a few buildings such as a post office, hardware store, and Masonic Lodge Hall. Since the early 2000s, this area has drastically grown in size both in area and population.
On May 2, 2010 the drastic and devastating Nashville flood hit Bellevue extremely hard. Bellevue neighbors bonded together, cleaned soaked drywall, dried out basements, took in neighbors and offered a helping hand to anyone who needed it. Bellevue rebounded magnificently and has continued to experience an upward trajectory in residential and commercial development ever since. New roads, a new wonderful shopping and mixed use establishment at One Bellevue Place and the incredible building of The Ford Ice Center facility has added even more revitalization to the area. A new state-of-the-art high school is also under way for the area. The renderings are breathtaking.
Many environmental lovers are attracted to the area because of the ample nature attractions. Warner Parks has miles of trails for hikers, and cyclists. The Warner Park Nature Center is a great attraction for learning with young kids. Also, check out the amazing Harpeth River Greenway and launch a kayak onto the Harpeth River!
