Green Hills

Welcome to Green Hills

Green Hills is an elegant suburban neighborhood a short drive south of Downtown Nashville.

Bordered by prestigious Belle Meade to the west and Lipscomb University to the east, this affluent neighborhood is full of large homes on leafy streets. Green Hills also offers an abundance of upscale shopping and dining. 

Green Hills’ development began in the 1930s, and most of its homes are 1950s and ‘60s ranch-style properties on half-acre lots. Recent years have seen the development of Green Hills’ first residential high-rise, Vertis, which offers luxurious amenities and stylish contemporary apartments. The largest and most expensive homes are generally located in the western portion of the neighborhood, where grand multi-million dollar mansions can extend beyond 10,000 square feet in size.
