Fifteen minutes from downtown, with high-end shopping and grocery at its core, Green Hills is an upscale suburban enclave on Nashville. The neighborhood came into existence in the 1930s and is not designed around walkability.
Convenience is what makes Green Hills prime real estate. It’s close to Downtown Nashville; Belmont, Vanderbilt and Lipscomb universities; and several hospitals and medical centers, including Vanderbilt University Medical Center, St. Thomas West, St. Thomas Midtown and TriStar Centennial Medical Center.
Sandwiched between Green Hills and the Williamson County border is Forest Hills. Forest Hills is a non-commercial, fully residential suburb of Nashville. There is no high-density housing here and has more than four miles of dry-stack stone walls and fences, some of which date back to the early 1800s.
