Duncan Wood Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Duncan Wood neighborhood is bound on the west by Granny White Pike, the only access road from Duncanwood Drive. Homes range from small cottages to grand two-stories and elegant contemporaries. Lawns are lush and heavily shaded, and dogwoods bloom alongside spring flowers. The rolling terrain and winding streets create a tranquil setting in this neighborhood, which lies in the 35204 zip code area.
Within a quarter mile of Duncan Wood is the lively campus of David Lipscomb College, one of the most prestigious private colleges in Nashville. The top-ranked Belmont, which is especially noted for training future leaders of the entertainment business, also lies within a five minute drive.
With so many schools in a relatively small area, there are bound to be plenty of restaurants and entertainment venues. 12th Avenue South is the neighborhood’s most popular area for dining.
Other well known cultural landmarks include The Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium, Frist Center for Visual Arts, and Schermerhorn Symphony Hall, home of the Nashville Symphony.
Several neighborhood parks are within walking distance. A short drive south lies the Radnor Lake Natural Area and Wildlife Refuge, situated near the 85-acre Radnor Lake. The park has miles of protected hiking trails and some of the highest hills around. This diverse habitat shelters an amazing variety of wildlife, and the geology here tells a long story of ancient seas.
For those who like their recreation with a bit of history, the Nashville Golf and Athletic Club, just south of Radnor, preserves an original portion of the Crockett family home. Davy might have a hard time recognizing the place now, with its elegant 10,000 square foot clubhouse and carefully groomed grounds.
