Percy Priest Woods Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Percy Priest Woods is a community of established single-family, traditional homes that are ten to 30 years old. The quiet, serene lots where the homes sit are wooded with Tennessee trees, such as the state tree, the yellow poplar, as well as sweet gums, sycamores, witch hazels, birches, and loblolly pines. All the trees provide shelter for area birds, such as the robin, pine siskin, bluebird, wood thrush, chickadee and red-headed woodpecker. In the summer months, porches are decorated with pots of geraniums and gerbera daisies, and roses mingle among juneberry, honeysuckle, and shrubs of sumac.
The neighborhood is located south of Interstate 40 and Elm Hill Pike, west of Pleasant Hill Road and north of Nashboro Boulevard. The Elm Hill Marina and J. Percy Priest Reservoir lie directly to the east. The reservoir offers a host of activities, including boating, fishing, canoeing, horseback riding, swimming, and hiking.
All that activity can work up an appetite. When residents aren’t boating, fishing, or trekking the scenic trails that wind through the reservoir area, they like visiting the Cove Restaurant located at 3361 Bell Road. In addition to its dinner offerings, the local eatery features daily lunch specials, Monday through Friday, and weekend breakfasts that include omelets and pancakes.
In close access to the interstate system, locals also like to visit nearby shopping centers too. The Hickory Hollow Mall, off I-24, southwest of the community, is located in Antioch, Tennessee. Home to anchor stores Dillard’s, Hecht’s, Sears, and J.C. Penney, the large shopping mall provides a way to escape the heat of summer or the cold of an icy winter’s day.
Given their proximity to the “Great Outdoors” and shopping and restaurants, residents in the Percy Priest Woods community count themselves lucky to call Nashville home.
