Located due 10 minutes East of downtown on the I-40 expressway, Hermitage has seen tremendous growth over the past three decades. This Nashville borough was once the rural home of President Andrew Jackson, whose estate of the same name is now open to the public. Though only 7 miles from Nashville, Hermitage offers its own impressive array of shopping opportunities. Commuters can also travel to and from the greater metropolitan area via the Music City Star, the convenient regional light-rail service that began operating in 2006. Hermitage is home to several major employers, such as the Swiss accounting firm Deloitte Touche, whose national headquarters occupy over 200,000 square feet and employs more than 1,000 locals. Hermitage offers everything from charming starter homes and fixer-uppers for $995/mo to higher priced executive estates in the $3,000/mo range.
