Middle Tennessee is comprised of gently rolling hills, fertile valleys and beautiful lakes and rivers, which means finding a home with scenic views is an easy task. Waterfront homes are especially popular — particularly when they are just a quick drive from Nashville. Many Nashville residents purchase homes along the lakes and rivers to use as weekend getaways, while others choose to move their entire lives there for a more laid-back way of life.
