South Bluffs is a gated neighborhood located south of Downtown Memphis, Tennessee. The bluff was previously occupied by a 25-acre railroad and switching yard, until 1989 when ground was broken on developing a residential neighborhood. One of the most famous residents was Cybil Shepherd the actress.


South Bluffs offers a wide range of living styles to people buying in different price brackets. Houses range from $150,000 to $2,000,000, providing views within the neighborhood or overlooking the Mississippi River. Beginning at the northern end the neighborhood, there lies a River Walk that takes residents or pedestrians out of the neighborhood and closer towards Downtown Memphis. This River Walk provides individuals with views of the Mississippi River and Tom Lee Park, where national festivals, such as Memphis in May, are held. South Bluffs also lies in close proximity to the South Main Art District, where numerous restaurants and galleries are located.


Streets entering the neighborhood are paved with historic cobble-stones that lead to two large fountains located at central intersections within the neighborhood. Between private drives, large medians are lined with 12-foot (3.7 m) high cast iron lights that are capped with historic acorn style luminaries. These lights illuminate the tree-lined medians and flowered gardens.


Aside from houses, there is a large amount of apartments within the residential neighborhood. Apartment sizes range from 1 to 2 bedroom styles, providing various living arrangements for different sized families. Apartments are pet friendly and the neighborhood offers multiple dog bag dispensing stations. Additionally, the neighborhood offers a residential fitness center, along with 2 large pools. Next to the pools lies tennis courts for which equipment can be rented from offices within the neighborhood apartment complex.
