East Nashville is an artsy, socially conscious neighborhood of Nashville. Most residents of this borough find their next address in East End, Historic Edgefield, and Lockeland Springs. Each of these areas has a personality to their homes too.
The architectural influences of East Nashville are Dutch and European with common construction styles of Bungalow, Victorian, and Craftsman. Most homes in East Nashville were built around the 1950s and ‘60s, but you’ll find charming, historic homes throughout the area.
First up is the bungalow. A vintage bungalow home often has a lower pitched gable roof, porch, and squared off edges in structural supports and exterior accents. The main entrance is typically in the center with an extended overhang on the front steps. In East Nashville, most bungalow style homes have undergone at least one major renovation to update or refinish hardwood floors and home systems.
Another look you’ll see a lot of is the Victorian style on many East Nashville corner lots. Turned spokes on roof overhangs and carved wooden accents at the entryway and main rooms are charming and unique to each property. East Nashville Victorians are also noted for plaster walls, smaller rooms, and a fireplace in the living room or den.
If you buy a Victorian style home, I highly recommend keeping original carved accents as these details are popular for resale values.
Last but not least, one of the most popular looks – the Craftsman. The curated look of this house in East Nashville is gorgeous and timeless. In Nashville, most of these homes are either constructed of stone or brick and wood. A popular and sought-after feature of the Craftsman home is heavy trim on the square windows, which are typically painted a bright white or contrasting color.
