Nashville Neighborhood Guide: Brentwood

The city of Brentwood, Tennessee is one of the most desirable suburban environments for families looking to settle in the greater Nashville metro area. With a population estimated to be just over 42,000, Brentwood is nestled neatly between Nashville and historic Franklin, along I-65, providing easy access to much of what central Tennessee has to offer.

An affluent city with a host of gorgeous neighborhoods, the choice to live in Brentwood is less about finding good options and more about finding what feels right for you and your family. Plus, no matter where you put down your roots, you’ll always have access to everything that makes Brentwood great, like the Brentwood Library with its incredible resources for children, the Defy Nashville extreme air sports park, or the historic trifecta of the Cool Springs House, Ravenswood Mansion and the Boiling Spring Academy.

Need help narrowing things down? We’ve got you covered with this breakdown of Brentwood’s best luxury neighborhoods.

Belle Rive

With construction dating back as early as the 1970s, Belle Rive is firmly entrenched as one of Brentwood’s more established and eclectic upscale neighborhoods. Don’t let that maturity fool you, though, as luxury and elegance define Belle Rive’s multiple subdivisions — including the Highlands at Belle Rive — as much as any of the newer alternatives.
