Learn about Columbia

What is Columbia known for?

Located in Maury County, Columbia has the unmistakable feel of an independent, distinct town that woke up one day to find itself a part of the expanding Nashville sphere. It’s authentic Main Street lifestyle, antebellum homes, and comfortable southern pace has made it a destination for Nashvilians looking to scratch that small-town itch. It may be 46 miles from downtown Nashville, but that hasn’t stopped its population from spiking, and its housing market from taking off. It’s no understatement to say that Columbia offers some of the best small-town living in the United States. Southern Living, that lifestyle Bible of the Southeast, even ranked Columbia one of the top ten small towns in the entire South for its vibrant arts and live music scene. If you came to Columbia looking for some land, you’re in luck as many affordable homes feature an uncommon amount of acreage compared to the Nashville Metro area. Look to neighborhoods like Fountain Heights and Williamsport, homes on 5-acre lots are selling in the low-to-mid 300s. It might be a good idea to get your offer in quickly, though, because Columbia is no longer a well-kept secret.

Who is Columbia a good fit for?

The small town of Columbia, Tennessee offers a wealth of history and culture. The Southern charm and sense of community are evident throughout the area. The population accounts for nearly 40,000 people, many of which are young families. The majority of the residents are in their mid-thirties, and nearly half of the population have kids under the age of 18.

Things to do around Columbia

Like much of Middle Tennessee, Columbia is known for its rich history and outdoor recreational activities. For those looking to satisfy the former, Columbia is home to President James K. Polk’s Home and Museum. This quaint home located just off Garden Street and down the street from the Maury County Public Library holds artifacts and treasures of America’s 11th president. For those looking for some fresh air, head over to Maury County Park, one of Tennessee’s premier parks located just south of Columbia Central High School. This park sits on over 240 acres and has something for everyone from baseball fields and a football stadium to ⅛ scale steam engines and an equestrian center. Another one of our favorite parks is Riverwalk Park located on the Duck River where you will find walking trails, a basketball court, and a picnic area. Across the Duck River is Asgard Brewing Co., a craft microbrewery located in historic downtown Columbia.

New subdivisions like Harvest Point and Carver’s Station offer amenities that today’s homeowners have come to expect, such as an open floorplan, hardwood flooring, stainless appliances, and granite countertops. This affordable luxury makes the decision to relocate to Columbia that much easier for interested buyers. It’s no surprise that apartments in Muletown have followed suit, with new upscale complexes popping up right around Columbia’s iconic downtown. The rent for these units, often start above $1,000 per month which can seem a little steep for a place almost an hour outside of Nashville, but their placement next to Columbia’s iconic downtown more than justifies the cost.

“Columbia is far from Nashville, but if you’re ok with that it’s a great place to look into!”

Columbia is far from Nashville, but if you’re ok with that it’s a great place to look into. It has an adorable downtown area, and there has been a lot of new restaurants and boutiques that have opened up. This is one of my favorite areas to go antiquing, and a lot of antique stores have relocated from more expensive Franklin. It is much more affordable, and you can really get a good home in this area. But, if you have to commute into Nashville it would not be ideal.

FAQs

What is life in Columbia like?

When living in Columbia, you can expect a traditional southern atmosphere. It offers a predominately suburban feel but also continues to see great substantial growth. The area is ideal for many young professionals and for those looking to raise a family.

Why are homes in Columbia a good investment?

The average sale price over the last year of $267,000 is certainly reasonable for Nashville, but that’s a 17% increase over the 2019 numbers in Columbia. One explanation for this elevated market value is the recent development of high-quality new construction, especially along the Highway 31 corridor going toward Nashville. In addition to newer homes being built in Columbia, there is something to be said about the trend of city slickers moving out into the country. Generally speaking, homebuyers have an appetite for larger homes on some acreage which is exactly what you’ll find in Columbia.

How long does it take to commute to Downtown Nashville from Columbia?
