Old Hickory, TN Homes for Sale

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.

About Old Hickory, Tennessee

How's the Old Hickory real estate market?

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. To get an accurate home valuation estimate, use our Old Hickory home value calculator.

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.
