With a total land area of just 3.1 square miles, real estate in Belle Meade is exclusive, to say the least.
Many houses in Belle Meade are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and Belle Meade's city government has worked hard to keep existing properties and developments in line with its storied heritage.
As a result, homes in Belle Meade tend to reflect a variety of classic traditional styles, including Palladian, Tudor, French revival, and even Spanish villa inspired homes.
Larger homes in Belle Meade feature multiple fireplaces, grand rooms, and long driveways. Frontages emulate rolling wooded meadows, extending right up to the road, making for uncluttered, natural-looking streets.
In addition to the more stately homes, one can also find a few smaller gems tucked away in between the well-established stands of oak and poplar.
