What The Locals Say: Meet The Patels
Dr. Ashish Patel and his wife, Priya Patel, have fallen in love with their beautiful home in the “residential only” Oak Hill neighborhood. Ashish can be near his practice, Nashville Dentistry Co., in the Brentwood Hill Center, while Priya can take some well-deserved R&R after her long days working as a nurse. The smaller selection of businesses within their neighborhood is optimal for top-tier exploration through Brentwood Proper and the rest of Nashville.
“When deciding where to settle down, we wanted to have easy access to all of the exciting things that go on in Nashville. The central location to other neighborhoods we like- Green Hills, 12South, Brentwood, and Downtown Nashville, was a big seller for us! We can get to the airport in less than 20 minutes (a dream come true for us as avid travelers). There are always new homes popping up and young families moving in, which keeps it interesting. For a self-care day, Priya relies on Viva Nails for a perfectly pampered afternoon. After a long day at work, we both enjoy walking around Radnor Lake, the Ellington Agricultural Center, or in the fall, visiting the Nashville Greek Festival at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church.”
