By the middle of 2018, a lot about the housing market in Nashville was beginning to shift, from an upswing in home inventory to a rise in Nashville homes valued over a million dollars.
Another shift, according to The Tennessean: “Growing numbers of home buyers are choosing townhomes … with lower prices, no grass to mow and locations that often are close to restaurants and shopping.”
There are definite pluses to buying a townhome in Nashville, especially as a first-time homebuyer, while the average home price in Middle Tennessee has steadily crept upward. And it’s not just the more affordable price point — many townhome communities in Nashville also offer amenities and perks that a single-family home won’t provide, from dog parks and playgrounds to pools and more.
If what you’re looking for, as a Nashville homeowner, is easy living, a convenient location, plus a few good perks, all at a more approachable price point, buying a Nashville townhome is probably the perfect fit.
Curious to see what the townhome market in Nashville is looking like as we close out 2018 and move into 2019? Below, a few townhomes for sale that caught our eye (including one at Ashland Place, a community we’re listing and that we’d be proud to show you).
Townhomes for sale in Nashville, TN
This is one of a few Phase 1 units at Ashland Place still available (Phase 2 is coming soon), and it represents kind of a midpoint option in the brand new northwest Nashville community — there are smaller units available at a lower price point, and larger homes available at a slightly higher one too. This unit has 3 beds, 2 1/2 baths and over 1400 square feet of high-end new construction to offer with an open layout, hardwoods and tile, stainless appliances and lots more. And the community has a dog park and playground to keep your smaller family members of both the two- and four-footed variety happy. The location’s a major plus too — a quick shot to The Nations/West Nashville and the dining/shopping glut there, and an easy commute downtown. Phase 1 prices lapse once the last few Phase 1 homes are snatched up — if you’re curious, and would like to tour the community and the model home, just reach out and let us know!

Similar size and nearby location, in the Charlotte Park area: This new townhome also has 3 beds and 2 1/2 baths, and a high-end finish grade. Serious plus if you’re into tennis: The Charlotte Park courts are within walking distance.
Another new townhome hub on the west side of Nashville, the West Mill Townhomes community offers the big buyer asks: wood floors, granite countertops, stainless appliances and a convenient location. This unit has 2 beds, 2 1/2 baths and 1,152 square feet, plus a cute patio out back off the kitchen.
Over in East Nashville, this new townhome complex doesn’t come with community amenities, but it does bring a cool location, just a few blocks from the new Grimey’s New & Preloved Music and the new brewery/fitness studios in the works next door. Inside, all the new-construction must-haves are in place, including stainless appliances, hardwoods and a bright, open layout.
If you’re aching to call the 12 South area home, but have a budget in the $400K range, townhome listings like this could be your ideal bet. This particular 2-bed unit is close to 12 South’s bustling business district, and is nearly brand new, built in 2016, 2005, with hardwoods, granite, 10-foot ceilings and more.
For plenty of townhome buyers, it’s not the lower price point that draws them in, but the ease and convenience — not everyone wants a yard. This Germantown townhome is priced on the higher end for Nashville, but you’re getting an upscale home in a much-desired location (steps from some of the city’s best dining), with a stellar rooftop deck and spectacular downtown views, plus lots more.
