The veritable crown jewel of Middle Tennessee, Belle Meade is the address of Nashville’s high society. This incorporated city marks Harding Road and Belle Meade Boulevard with its own equine street signs. An autonomous police department makes it the safest neighborhood in town. Besides its well-known estates are smaller residences from the 1930s and 1940s. Established families often occupy their homes for generations, which make for a very stable locale. Belle Meade is home to Cheekwood, Belle Meade Plantation, and the Warner Parks. Nearby West Meade is a tree-hidden pocket of 1950s and 1960s ranch homes, located west of Harding Road/West End Avenue. As with Belle Meade, the expanse of private property in all directions guarantees a level of peace and quiet only a mile away from Nashville’s major commercial hubs.
