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.


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. No home looks the same, yet the neighborhood comes together to celebrate the individuality that builds the community.


12 South, one of Nashville’s most popular neighborhoods, is a combination of modern trends and old world charm. 12 South has emerged as the perfect one-stop destination to live, eat, drink, play, and socialize. Stylish shops, beautifully-restored homes, trendy coffee shops, and a wide array of dining options are all within walking distance. You are likely to find a hand-stitched pair of jeans, local craft beer, iconic photo opportunities, and a fabulous meal all in one visit.
