Patio Villa Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Patio Villa neighborhood is made up of a variety of single-family and condo-type properties, some with double porches and large backyard decks. Homes are from 15 to 25 years old and rest on fairly large lots that are landscaped with birch, hackberry, witch hazel, sweet gum, and maple trees. The vegetation provides a refuge for area birds.
In the summer, the community comes to life with the blossoms of wildflowers, such as columbine, wild ginger, milkweed, purple coneflower, joe-pye weed, jack-in-the pulpit, and coreopsis. Soft winds produce a gentle reprieve from summer’s heat and humidity. Residents don’t mind the higher temperatures though as they can sit out on screened or shaded decks or patios and enjoy the natural surroundings.
The neighborhood is located just south of interstate 40 where it merges with Elm Hill Pike, which also borders the community of the south side. Bell Road is located directly west as well as the J. Percy Priest Reservoir. The reservoir, which was constructed in the late 60s and opened in early 1970, is a popular recreational area, offering locals and visitors alike opportunities to camp, fish, hike, boat, horseback ride, swim and canoe, or just take it easy.
Being close to the interstate system also makes it possible for locals to find ready access to shopping and dining. The Factory at Franklin, just south of Nashville, at 230 Franklin Road in Franklin, provides collectors of art and antiques a nice venue in which to indulge their hobby.
With its close access to shopping and recreational activities, families and singles alike find the Patio Villa neighborhood an ideal Nashville community.
