Hermitage, TN Homes for Sale

Hermitage Tennessee is a neighborhood in the Nashville metro named after its marquee feature, President Andrew Jackson’s 1,100-acre plantation called “The Hermitage”. Besides being an obvious magnet for history buffs, the neighborhood’s situation along the banks of both the Cumberland River and the Percy Priest Lake make it a refuge for outdoorsmen. Hermitage’s six waterfront parks, many with trails and boat access, are an anomaly even for Nashville. Another perk of the town’s maturity is its developed restaurant district with enough tantalizing options that you might find yourself forgetting that Downtown Nashville is such an easy drive away.

About Hermitage, Tennessee

How's the Hermitage real estate market?

Hermitage is something of a unicorn in the suburban Nashville real estate market in that it’s unusual to find a home built after the turn of the century. Most homes are simple single-family dwellings, the kind with a fairly small but sensible three-bedroom two-bath design. Residents don’t move often, but when they do, these unpretentious homes tend to be reasonably priced and quick to come off the market. Perhaps because of its underrated convenience and activity, rental prices are considerably higher than the Hermitage home prices might suggest. Although the rental market features a nice variety of properties, with plenty of single-family homes and townhomes, you can expect to pay at least $1,500/month for almost anything with more than one bedroom.
