Nevada Heights

In case you missed it, there's an interesting story from Sunday's Tennessean about the emerging "subdivision" just outside of I-440 in Sylvan Heights. This collection of modern homes, which have a prominent presence just above the interstate right before it crosses over Charlotte Pike, has been named Nevada Heights and is a major departure from the design styles that are most common in both Sylvan Park and Sylvan Heights.

The story focuses on how modern design is realtively rare in Nashville and that instances of it are beginning to increase in the city. While my tastes are more traditional for my own home, I personally like these houses on the hilltop and think they are a good development for the area. They're certainly priced at a steep premium, but my hope is that that will eventually help to boost Sylvan Heights in general as the neighborhood attracts more residents who are willing to spruce up older homes in need of a little TLC.
