Belle Meade is a sub-neighborhood which lies within the larger enclave of the Upper East Side. It is a private, gated community and the Southern part is adjacent to a smaller subdivision known as the Bayside District. The Northern part contains Belle Meade Island which is bounded by the Little River to the North, Northeast 72nd Terrace to the South, Biscayne Boulevard to the West, and Biscayne Bay to the East.
Right from the start, this waterfront location sets it apart from many other communities popular with the arts set. The homes here are luxury affairs on the whole and there are many properties which constitute the types of homes that are more in the range of successful people.
This blend of an upscale lifestyle with roots in the design and artistic culture in which many of the residents established themselves gives it an edge where loving and investing is important.
