Hendersonville, TN Homes for Sale

Located in Sumner County across the lake from Old Hickory, more and more Nashvilians are retreating to this accessible lakeside hideaway that has harbored stars like Johnny Cash, June Carter, and Conway Twitty. Fortunately, this medium-sized town on the north side of Old Hickory Lake caters to more than just the rich and famous. Like any spot worthy of a staycation, Hendersonville has its fair share of lavish estates on the lake, and more affordable homes a bit further inland. Residents find their way to this land of winding bike trails and water views, though, few find themselves in a hurry to leave it.

About Hendersonville, Tennessee

How's the Hendersonville real estate market?

Hendersonville’s mature mix of properties ensures that new construction and lavish single family homes don’t force out its entrenched blue-collar population. There certainly are new developments, like Durham Farms, that offer the most modern amenities such as an open floorplan, hardwood floors, stainless appliances, and granite countertops. These new construction homes are typically priced in the $400,000-$500,000 range, but the majority of the market consists of slightly older single-family homes built before 1999. For those unwilling or unable to commit to purchasing a home, Hendersonville isn’t necessarily a renter’s paradise. There are some new complexes, like The Grove at Waterford Crossing, but many apartment buildings can be a little dated. Luckily, this often means rent that comes in below the $1000/month threshold. To get an accurate home valuation estimate, use our Hendersonville home value calculator.

Why are homes in Hendersonville a good investment?

Unlike some other booming Nashville suburbs, Hendersonville has seen a constant rate of population increase since the 1970s, rather than a rapid spike in residents. This has led to a steady appreciation of home values without sacrificing inclusivity. Homes in Hendersonville, especially condos and townhomes can be relatively affordable, with some waterfront properties available in the $300,000 range. While, ironically enough, homes well off the water in neighborhoods like Shackle Island (where there is no island) often command a considerably higher average price. Either way, you’re getting a secluded spot in the Nashville metro area, with a great school district and easy accessibility to Downtown Nashville.

What are things to do in Hendersonville?

It’s no surprise that Hendersonville offers a number of water-related activities given its proximity to Old Hickory Lake. Residents can enjoy fishing, boating, and relaxing along the shoreline. The Rockland Recreation Area for example on the west side of Hendersonville includes spectacular views of the lake, nature trails, and a fishing area. Hendersonville is also home to the Monthaven Arts & Cultural Center, an art museum and historical landmark. Another museum known for being the oldest home in Middle Tennessee is the Rock Castle. Just 25 minutes from Downtown Nashville, this home was completed in 1796 and sits Drake’s Creek, a tributary of the Cumberland River.
