There’s something for everyone residence wise, as Hillsboro Village has apartments, condos, ranch and bungalow type single-family homes, and lots of new construction.

The Gulch/Downtown

We’re lumping The Gulch in with Downtown, as they bleed into each other! Though Downtown Nashville is certainly city-living, it provides a more laid-back feel than many downtown areas across the country. As the epicenter of entertainment, it offers a mix of business folk, musicians, artists, tourists, locals, and celebrities on any given day, as well as avenues for food, drink, and fun galore. Living in the Gulch and Downtown include mainly condos, apartments, and new construction.
