The Neighborhood

Just a couple of miles south of downtown Nashville, the vibrant 12 South community encompasses 10 blocks that run from Linden Avenue to Sevier Park. Over 200 years ago Granny White made her way from North Carolina and settled along the old buffalo path, now known as Granny White Pike, to sell her ginger cakes from a roadside stand, and later, opened an inn for travelers. Today, the same spirit of hospitality and entrepreneurship exists in 12 South and Nashvillians and tourists alike enjoy the highly-walkable community.

The Market

Homes in 12 South are just as eclectic as the people that live here. You’ll find lovingly restored bungalows along tree-lined streets mixed with newer homes built within the last couple of years.
