Charming, historic Sylvan Park is located west of Downtown. It was Music City’s best-kept secret before young professionals and retirees got their creative hands on it. The homes of this close-knit West Nashville community have been carefully restored and landscaped into shape. A bagel shop, a coffeehouse, restaurants and an art gallery have taken their place among its one-block commercial strip. Golfers find haven at McCabe Park, and locals enjoy McCabe’s Pub, a Nashville original.
Prominent on its tree-lined street blocks are 1910 to 1940’s frame and brick Bungalows. Also prevalent are 1900-1915 Princess Anne Cottages, small brick Cottages with Tudor and Deco influences, and large, handsome Queen Anne homes.
