Bransford Avenue Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Bransford Avenue neighborhood is made up of small older homes, duplexes, apartment complexes, and new corporate office buildings. It is just off I-65, between Wedgewood Avenue to the north and Craighead Street to the south. Bransford Avenue runs through this area, in zip code 35204. Sidewalks make this a very walkable neighborhood with convenient public transit stops along the boundary roads.
Country music fans enjoy easy access to two top Nashville spots: The Grand Ole Opry is northeast of Bransford Avenue neighborhood, and Ryman Auditorium and The Country Music Hall of Fame is northwest, both within a half-hour drive.
Ryman Auditorium is not the only entertainment venue in this part of Nashville, however. Nearby is the home of the Nashville Symphony and The Frist Center for the Visual Arts. The State Capital and Nashville Municipal Auditorium are nearby, as well.
Just across the river is a new public golf course, Riverside Golf Center. The 18-hole course is located in Shelby Park. For disc golf fans, there is a challenging course a short drive southeast at Seven Oaks.
Residents of Bransford Avenue are within walking distance to a great flea market held once a month at the State Fair Grounds. The flea market attracts tens of thousands of bargain hunters and receives national attention. More than 1,000 vendors come here, selling every imaginable item along with art and antiques.
Students, or those who appreciate the many cultural and entertainment aspects of a large university, will appreciate the neighborhood’s proximity to Vanderbilt University, about two miles west.
Outdoor enthusiasts will find plenty of opportunities for fishing, boating, camping and more at the massive J. Percy Priest Reservoir and State Park, a short drive east.
