While most businesses and industries have taken a hit in one way or another throughout the past year, Nashville’s real estate market is hotter than ever. Homes — even ones in the multimillion-dollar price range — are selling so quickly that it was challenging to find properties to highlight before they were under contract. This year, for our annual Homes of Distinction issue, we chose seven remarkable properties. From an urban penthouse to a bed-and-breakfast and a 269-acre rural retreat, these homes showcase the breadth of the region's real estate offerings.
