The Villages of Brentwood is a lovely community; I lived right around the corner on Huntington Parkway when I first moved to Nashville many years ago and loved it over there. That area has just gotten better and better over the years with Nippers Corner, Maryland Farms, the new Wal-Mart Supercenter, and letâ€™s not forget that you are smack in the middle of 2 major Interstates; you can get anywhere you would want to be, Downtown, Cool Springs, Murfreesboro, within minutes!
I pulled the closest listing to 363 and it shows the association fee at $2, which is an odd amount. I called the listing agent to verify, but did not get an answer. If you are looking to purchase in that area, the only word of caution I would give is that existing homes are not appreciating as fast as other areas in Nashville; this is most likely due to all the new construction - Lenox Village, Cane Ridge, etc. which makes resale harder. But, if you plan to be in that area 3 years or longer, you should be ok.
Assuming your question about it being a mixed neighborhood refers to ethnic or racial diversity, the best way for you to get that information is to go to the school website http://www.mnps.org and find out what schools you are zoned for at that address. Then you can pull the report for those schools. The demographic breakdown is under School Data and they give you a couple of years of information which is nice because you can see trends if there are any. If you have any trouble with that, I would be happy to walk you through it, just give me a call 615-525-7653.
Peggy, no matter where you choose to live, awareness is your best defense, so you will want to check out crime info before you commit to any area; there is an interactive crime map at http://pdmap2.police.nashville.org and a really good sex-offender map at http://www.familywatchdog.us .
Hope this has helped; happy searching! ~ Kathleen
