If you’re looking for a place with a less conventional suburban lifestyle, then Hendersonville might just be where you’ll want to live. Few suburbs offer lakeside living within thirty minutes of downtown, but Hendersonville is home to two huge peninsulas along Old Hickory Lake. This abundance of waterfront property makes the area a unique haven from big-city work life.
Considering its lakeside location, the community boasts a surprisingly affordable cost of living, with reasonable median home values. Of course, there are plenty of waterfront mansions, but there are also lots of modest homes with a water view, and even some undeveloped lots for those looking to build their own home.
Just northeast of Nashville, Hendersonville is an older community, old enough that Johnny and June called the place home, so it has resisted the new construction boom that’s transforming so many Nashville suburbs. This market consistency has kept Hendersonville relatively affordable and accessible to many different types of people. And even if waterfront living isn’t in your budget, the area still offers plenty of spots, like Rockland Recreation Area and Memorial Park that can get you on the water.
New residents continue to move here from all over the country to retire, open businesses, and raise families. It ranks high in livability with tons of amenities, a low crime rate, top-notch education, and reasonable housing prices. You’ll find restaurants, parks, grocery stores, coffee shops, and libraries within a short distance of most neighborhoods. Amenities like these along with a user-friendly downtown have basically made Hendersonville a prime destination just over 30 minutes from the heart of Nashville.
Hendersonville is an exceptional city, defined by our schools, churches, employers, parks, Old Hickory Lake, improving infrastructure, and the people who live here. The city draws summer crowds every year for its many parks, marinas, and campgrounds and offers numerous outdoor entertainment choices during the festival season.
