Located roughly 15 minutes south of downtown, the neighborhood of Crieve Hall was originally part of the 2000-acre estate owned by John Overton, who built Travellers Rest in 1799. This English Tudor mansion, built in 1900, was purchased and expanded by Herbert Farrell in the 1920s. Farrell renamed the estate “Crieve Hall” after his family’s ancestral home in Northern Ireland.
The property was razed and subdivided in the 1950s to make way for a residential neighborhood. Today you’ll find great ranch-style homes and some mid-century modern gems on nice-sized lots. The easy commute to Downtown and Cool Springs makes this a desirable neighborhood for professionals working in those areas.
