Learn about Old Hickory

What is Old Hickory known for?

Old Hickory, a neighborhood in the Nashville metro area is a lakeside suburb that was once a planned company town for the DuPont plant that still operates on a limited basis. Named after President Andrew Jackson whose nickname was “Old Hickory”, this neighborhood is sandwiched between the Cumberland River and Old Hickory Lake. A 20-minute drive to Downtown Nashville is convenient but many Old Hickory residents don’t find themselves making the commute that often thanks to the numerous restaurants and entertainment options in neighboring Hermitage and Madison. While its housing situation is no longer an extension of the corporate hierarchy, the neighborhood’s stratified heritage does promote a unique living situation.

Who is Old Hickory a good fit for?

This charming small town, located right off the banks of the Cumberland River, is popular amongst folks seeking access to downtown Nashville, but desiring to live in a more peaceful and tranquil setting, away from the hustle and bustle of city life. With a laid-back, “lakeside town” atmosphere, many retirees enjoy settling down in this serene area, particularly in the Historic Old Hickory Village, a more suburban setting with beautifully renovated vintage houses. In recent years, this area has continued to grow in popularity as its community develops.

Things to do around Old Hickory

Old Hickory School Info

Unfortunately, Old Hickory isn’t particularly well-known for its schools. While there are several options for younger students, such as Madison Middle, DuPont-Hadley Middle, and DuPont Elementary, these schools are rated as average choices. However, it should be noted that Andrew Jackson Elementary is a solid option for younger students and is well-worth consideration. For high schoolers, families will need to explore further into Davidson County since there are no high schools within the Old Hickory neighborhood.

On one hand, the lakeshore offers some of the closest big-water housing to downtown Nashville, with sprawling houses and generous lots that often command well over a million dollars. On the other hand, just off the lake is a meticulously constructed grid of company homes designed for maximum efficiency. It’s an intriguing juxtaposition that allows contrasting lifestyles to flourish within a confined suburban space. Of course, most of the houses aren’t mansions along the lake, but homes crowding within the old company grid. Small lots and quaint, bungalow-style architecture are trademarks of these properties, many of which have recently undergone dramatic renovations to reclaim them for today’s buyer. These renovations include modern luxuries such as an open concept floorplan, hardwood flooring, granite countertops, and stainless appliances. If you’re not interested in reprising the company life nestled in these cozy neighborhoods, however, new construction is adding wrinkles to the home supply. Especially north of the original city, townhome complexes like the Robinson Rowhouses, along with modern subdivisions, are adding updated housing alternatives. This expanded selection has helped turn Old Hickory into a hub for aspiring Nashville homeowners. And while the market for renters is still in its nascent stages, asking prices are low enough for most to take the plunge into homeownership.

FAQs

What is life in Old Hickory like?

Residents living in Old Hickory enjoy the close-knit neighborhood community conveniently located just outside of Nashville. Locals often spend time participating in family-friendly outdoor activities, as Old Hickory sits alongside The Cumberland River.

plus-icon

Why are homes in Old Hickory a good investment?

Thanks to the influx of recently updated older homes, the nearby waterfront, and the close proximity to downtown Nashville, Old Hickory has enjoyed modest but consistent gains in home values. One perk if you’re a buyer is that the predominantly small houses limit the ultimate sale price. Even though the neighborhood’s price per square foot of $196 is comparable to that of a place like Franklin, the average sale price of roughly $300,000 keeps the neighborhood accessible to less ritzy populations.

How long does it take to commute to Downtown Nashville from Old Hickory?

Commuting from Old Hickory to Downtown Nashville by car will take approximately 22 minutes.
