Brentwood Tennessee

Where is Brentwood TN?  Just a short distance south of Nashville sits the rolling hills and safe neighborhoods of Brentwood – a desirable city known for its affluent standard of living. This reputation is also rooted in history as Brentwood was considered one of the richest areas in Tennessee prior to the Civil War. Some of these Civil War era estates and plantations were rediscovered in the 1920s and lovingly restored.

There is a wide variety of real estate in Brentwood. Today, you’ll find a pleasant mix of new homes, older homes, and historic estates with over 60 residential subdivisions to choose from.

Families with children are drawn to Brentwood because it boasts one of the top public school systems in the state. Brentwood is also home to many professionals and executives. Approximately 70% of Brentwood’s adult residents hold an associates degree or higher. The average household income is $143,000 and average single family home sales price is $605,000 for the last 6 months as of May 2012.

Pride of home ownership is apparent in Brentwood since the owner-occupied housing rate is over 95%. Although Brentwood is often referred to as one of the wealthiest suburbs in Tennessee, there is a wide range of housing choices ranging from moderately affordable to extravagantly priced. In fact, the city’s nearly 23,000 acres is primarily residential with only about 10% zoned for commercial and other uses. It’s no wonder that Brentwood real estate continues to see healthy appreciation returns year after year.

The city of Brentwood offers residents a vast array of recreational amenities including parks, sports fields, trails for walking or biking, playgrounds, and more. In 1998, the city opened an $8 million state-of-the-art public library located in the 40-acre Concord Park. This part also features beautiful landscape with paved walking and biking paths.

Just 5 miles south of Brentwood off I-65 is the Cool Springs area, which is the largest retail area in middle Tennessee. Brentwood residents also enjoy close proximity to two large shopping malls and several factory outlet stores. When it comes to dining out, Brentwood offers over 60 restaurants to please a wide variety of palettes. And travelers can benefit from the proximity to the Nashville International Airport at only 16 miles away.

With the close proximity to Nashville, quiet streets, charming neighborhoods, natural beauty, top schools, and wonderful amenities, it’s no wonder Brentwood was chosen as one of the Best Places to Live in 2005, and one of the Best Places to Retire in 2010, and it continues to be a desirable choice for those moving into the Nashville area.
