We have been living in Clarksville for the last 7 years. My husband took a job in Nashville a few years back

Asked by Leigh, Clarksville, TN Sat Mar 8, 2008

and the commute plus gas is just too much. We are in the process of selling our home so that we can move closer to Nashville, but really have no ideas other then exit 24 for good places to live. We want the same convinience as we have now. We are close to everything, but we just don't have a clue what areas are good for a growing family. I want a safe/quiet neighborhood, my husband really doesn't want to reach out the window and tuch the other neighbors house and are looking for something close to restraunts and shopping without a tun of traffic. Any suggestions?

This is a though one for me. I have lived here since 1982. I love Clarksville and can't imagine leaving it. Personally, I might consider Galatin. It looks like a great place to raise children and has all the conviences of Clarksville but it is 25-30 miles from Nashville. No much closer and traffic does suck up there. Personally, I think Springfield is a dump. Sorry, Margaret. But Pleasant Hill has some potential but I have never anything standout about the schools. I don't know your ties to Clarksville and I hate to admit it but Murfreesboro/Smyrna is somewhat comparable to Clarksville if the other side of Nashville is an option. I have traveled Middle Tennesse extensively so I have been all over. I don't sell homes so if you have a question about an area give me a call I will answer without trying to sell you a home.
PS. Disclaimer: I do provide mortgages. Being a related field it could be beneficial for me if you purchase a home. But that is not my intent if you ask a question about an area.

I have a new Neighborhoods section on my website that might help you sort through the areas of interest within Davidon county. Depending on budget, I like Donlelson for affordable & convenient family homes.

You might want to consider the Bellevue community. It's located around 12 miles west of Downtown - about a 12-15 drive on I-40. Harpeth Valley Elementary is one of the best public schools in Davidson County. The Bellevue Mall will soon be redeveloped into a open air state-of-the-art 'lifestyle center' with lots of shopping and dining choices. We have a very nice YMCA that opened in 2006. Warner parks are just a few miles away. Visit my Bellevue Home Search 37221.com (named after the Bellevue ZIP code) and see what's currently on the MLS. Questions? Give me a call (615) 589-1124

Give Springfield a try! This will give you access to 2 interstates I65 as well as I24. Prices are good, alot of construction going on. A very friendly community as well as pretty. Most of the time, homes are on large lots. We would love to have you here. If I can help, my email in Kingmar@realtracs.com Margaret King THE REALTY GROUP

This is a difficult question to answer without more details on your specific preferences in a community and price range. Presuming that your husband works in the center of Nashville and you would still like to be close to friends in Clarksville, there are some growing communities north and west of Nashville such as Pleasant View and Springfield which are off of Exit 24 that you mention. You can venture into Sumner County to the east a bit where there are good schools and great communities. White House is growing and pulling in new stores and restaurants and you can make a quick jaunt to Hendersonville for great shopping at the new mall they are building. I am happy to answer in much more detail if you have the time to talk.
