Melbourne Drive Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Melbourne Drive neighborhood features large trees on broad, open lawns in level to gently rolling terrain. Bound by Kimberly Drive and Donna Hill Drive, Melbourne Drive runs throughout the neighborhood. Melbourne Drive residents enjoy easy access to a major thoroughfare, McGavock Pike. The neighborhood is in zip code 37214.
About a mile away is one of the area’s finest golf courses, Gaylord Springs Golf Links. Formerly known as Springhouse, the private club offers Scottish style links and beautiful scenery along the banks of the Cumberland River.
But a great golf club is only one of the neighborhood’s attractions. Melbourne Drive is in fact within walking distance to the Grand Ole Opry, one of the world’s best-known stages. While many fans come from across the nation and around the world to enjoy performances here, residents of Melbourne travel across the street.
But the Opry District offers much more. Opry Mills is a huge retail center with an incredible variety of stores, and live music on special occasions. There is a 20-screen cinema complex and an IMAX. Naturally, there are plenty of restaurants. Outdoor enthusiasts will find the Bass Pro Shop quite handy.
This area of Nashville is rich in historic sites. Two Rivers Mansion is the best example of early Italianate architecture anywhere. Built in 1859, it is on the National Register of Historic Places. Other historic and famous homes include The Hermitage, Rock Castle, and Spring Haven Mansion.
Along with history, culture, and entertainment, the neighborhood has great recreational areas. Two Rivers Park, Peeler Park, Shelby Bottoms Greenway, the Cumberland River are all within a few miles. A bit farther away are large recreational areas for boating and fishing. Old Hickory Lake and Percy Priest Reservoir offer dozens of parks, public access areas, and marinas.
