Oak Hill Reviews

Oak hill is just down the road from my current residence. This area of Nashville is outstanding. The neighbors are friendly and the the schools are amazing. There could be a bit of heavy traffic flow during rush hour but I don't blame anyone. It's has easy accesss because of i65 and Franklin pike. The cost of living here may be more than the surrounding areas but it's worth it. I would definitely recommend this neighborhood to anyone interested or planning on moving to Nashville. You'll only be minutes from downtown with is pretty cool. Honestly, I personally wouldn't change anything. Everyone and everything falls in place with this neighborhood. I can't complain.

Crime is high and housing cost high. Easy access to the highway and downtown Nashville. I would rate higher but neighborhood watch groups are hypersensitive to point of sadistic militant group. They put cameras up and walk regularly in patrol cycles as they report to groups unrecognized cars (which is fine) but once one has a problem with a neighbor who is not a threat or new person in area they complain in private Nextdoor and Facebook group discussions and create bullying watch group on their target. That behavior is illegal and should be better monitored by law enforcement but for now, police advocate as a better safe then sorry plan. But it can, for those so unlucky, create oppressive, terrifying environment. That may change when groups are subject of class action suits. It is bizarre neighborhood behavior that is all smiles accompanied by a Stepford town behavior, maybe best described as elitist, entitled, bully culture. Think Trayvon Martin.
