Nashville Contemporary Tree House!Must SeeTop 10 Florida Condos For Sale
Nashville, Tennessee is many things to many people, from music lovers to those who love the great outdoors and everything in between. All well-loved cities have nicknames and if the number of those are any indication of how much it’s loved by its residents, Nashville is near the top. We’re all familiar with "Music City" because of the Grand Ole Opry, but what about its other nickname, "Athens of the South?" Though some say it’s because there are 24 colleges in the Nashville area, there is also the full-sized replica of Athens’ Parthenon that was built in 1897 for the Tennessee Centennial Exposition. Then there is the "Protestant Vatican" or the "Buckle of the Bible Belt" because of the city’s 700 churches and home to the largest producer of Bibles in the world. Nashville is headquarters for multiple religious denominations, "Little Kurdistan" because it has the largest population of Kurdish people in the country, "Cashville" from a rap album by Young Buck, "Nash Vegas" because . . well, there doesn’t seem to be a because, and finally "The Hot Chicken Capital" because fried chicken fans can’t find it drenched in a cayenne pepper paste anywhere else. But Nashville has a special secret that is its real estate, both traditional and contemporary.
The latest in a string of Nashville beauties is a house that captures every childhood dream that followed us into adulthood - a treehouse.
