“The Hillsboro Belmont is near Belmont University and 12th South”

The Hillsboro Belmont is near Belmont University and 12th South. I personally like this neighborhood more than 12 South. It has beautiful craftsman bungalows, is very walkable, and is home to Bongo Java. I could walk around this neighborhood for hours. I just can’t afford this neighborhood, so it’s pricey.
