Sumner real estate: Durham Farms, Millstone come alive in the summer

Categories: Community Service, CSA, Events, Gallatin, Goodall Homes, Hendersonville, Millstone, New Community, Sumner County, The Tennessean | Posted: June 4, 2018

(Article Click HERE, Special to Nashville Tennessean / USA TODAY NETWORK — TENNESSEE)

Home is where the heart is, as the old saying goes, but this summer in two Hendersonville “lifestyle” neighborhoods, it’s also where you can listen to an outdoor concert or learn how to grow herbs and veggies and sample produce grown by local farmers.

“Have fun, get out of the house, and celebrate summer,” said Lacey Edwards, lifestyle director at Durham Farms.

The public is invited to attend upcoming concerts at Durham Farms and agriculture classes at Millstone that will be taught by experts from the University of Tennessee Extension Service. The events are free.

Durham Farms’ summer concert series continues June 2 in one of the pocket parks in the subdivision, located on Drakes Creek Road between Vietnam Veterans Boulevard and Long Hollow Pike. Food trucks, including Cousins Maine Lobster, will be on hand. There will be a petting zoo and a bounce house for kids.

On June 23 another concert will celebrate the grand opening of the community center, named The Farmhouse, which includes a fitness center, a pool, a café and a WiFi hub. It will host community events like happy hours.

At Millstone, being developed by Goodall Homes off Saundersville Road, agriculture experts from the extension service will answer questions about tomato gardens. They’ll also help kids plant tomatoes and peppers, said Jana Pastors, community lifestyle director.

The class is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on June 14, she said.

“Agriculture classes fit the lifestyle and the theme” of Millstone, which is designed around an outdoors lifestyle, said Pastors.

‘The kids are running, the adults are relaxing’

On July 24, adults will discuss canning and freezing produce while kids learn about planting seeds and flowers. On Aug. 28, adults will learn about maintaining healthy turf while kids learn how to grow succulents in containers. Classes begin at 6:30 p.m.

“Back in the day, canning was very popular. Now it’s popular again,” said Pastors.

The classes will be held at Millstone’s farm stand, next to the community center. That’s the place where local farmers are periodically invited to offer samples of their produce.

At Durham Farms, other events planned this summer include movie nights and kids’ parties with paint ball and ice cream.

“The kids are running around and the adults are relaxing,” said Edwards.

Hosting concerts and giving local artists a chance to perform makes sense for a neighborhood in Hendersonville, with its rich music industry heritage, said Edwards.

“Live music attracts so many people,” she said.

Durham Farms and Millstone are among a handful of Nashville-area communities with professional lifestyle directors. Others include Goodall Homes’ StoneBridge subdivision in Lebanon and the Waters Edge neighborhood in Franklin, where Pastors plans community activities.

Westhaven the master-planned community in Franklin, and Southern Springs, the new Del Webb active adult community in Spring Hill, also have lifestyle directors.

Durham Farms will eventually have 1,000 homes. Millstone will have 614 homes, including single-family houses, cottage homes, villas and townhomes.

Renting v. Buying in Gallatin: Why You Should Invest in a New Home

Categories: Gallatin | Posted: March 28, 2018

For a friendly, thriving community near Nashville, you can’t do better than Gallatin. For many reasons, it’s a wonderful place to live. But what’s the better choice for living here: rent vs. buy in Gallatin? Renting might seem like an easier choice, but before you start checking out a temporary solution, here’s why you should invest your money in a new home here.

#1. It’s a Friendly City

This small but vibrant city outside the Music City was chosen by Reader’s Digest as its “Nicest Place in America” for 2017. Helping others is a never-ending mission in this diverse community that lives by the slogan, “True Grit. Amazing Grace.” The city’s leaders work closely with residents, who gather together when they see a need. This positive environment is one of the reasons Goodall Homes chose it for the location of our new homes community, Patterson Farms. We envisioned neighbors who became friends, and Gallatin’s reputation underscored that view.

 

#2. Gallatin is a “Power Suburb”

The city was rated one of the top 12 “Power Suburbs” in the country. The choices were ranked according to a variety of statistics, including low unemployment rate, per capita income, and the percentage of household incomes over $75,000. Gallatin scored well in all categories, but the city’s 19.9% per-capita income growth is outstanding. The unemployment rate dropped 22.2%, to 4.2%, well below the national average. From an economic viewpoint, buying a home in Gallatin is a smart investment as real estate in this desirable suburb will continue to appreciate in value.

 

#3. Education is Top-Notch

Gallatin’s schools are equally exceptional. Parents rank the schools as four- and five-star. GreatSchools awarded Sumner County Middle College High School a perfect “10”, followed by a “9” for Union Elementary School.

 

#4. Quality of Life is Attracting More Residents

People from around the country are eyeing this growing city. The population rose 6.3%, to 31,640, over a three-year period. The city’s active schedule of events and broad range of amenities contribute to the desirable quality of life in Gallatin.

 

#5. A New Home in a Great Location is the Best Investment

Buying a home presents an investment opportunity, while monthly rent is purely an expense. Mortgage rates are still low right now and there are many loan programs designed to help people secure a mortgage. You might discover that the monthly mortgage payment is lower than your rent, while also providing distinct tax benefits.

Choosing to buy a new home versus a resale is another smart choice. Although the selling price might be lower on the resale, you need to calculate the maintenance and repair costs of an older home. Replacing the roof could cost $15,000 or more. A new air conditioning system will run more than $5,000. Renovations and even cosmetic changes add to the cost of ownership. Meanwhile, a new home is 100% move-in ready, with no additional expenses required to get the home of your dreams.

Today’s new homes are constructed with energy-efficiency in mind. The structure, materials, systems, and appliances are designed to conserve energy, which means cost savings to you. This feature alone contributes to the resale value of your home.

Patterson Farms presents the opportunity to buy an affordable new home in Gallatin. Priced from $248,000 to $295,000, Patterson Farms’ homes range from 1,638 to 2,647 square feet, and feature the stylish design, superior craftsmanship, and energy efficiency that contribute to lasting real estate value.

This Goodall Homes’ community is close to Gallatin’s historic downtown, where you can explore the shopping, dining, events, attractions, and amenities that make living here such a unique experience. Take a look at the floor plans for Patterson Farms, and then contact us to help you find the perfect home in the Nicest Place in America!

Goodall Homes plans 206 units in Gallatin

Categories: Gallatin, New Community, New Floorplan, New Homes Nashville Area, Sumner County | Posted: July 20, 2016

Goodall Homes is looking to build 206 homes along state Route 109 near the Clear Lake Meadows subdivision in Gallatin.

The Gallatin-based developer is seeking approval of a preliminary master development plan and rezoning request of 65.19 acres in the area. If approved by city officials, the request would allow for the construction of Patterson Farms, a 146 single-family home and 60 townhome development off Clear Lake Meadows Boulevard near Nichols Lane.

“There has always been, especially in Gallatin, a huge demand for housing for less than $250,000,” said Koby DuMont, land manager for Goodall Homes. “We want to get a product on the ground that people want, and we think this product is going to meet that demand.”

The proposed development would be built on land that was originally planned to be sections nine and 10 of the Clear Lake Meadows subdivision, according to Kevin Chastine, a planner with the Gallatin Planning Department.

Single-family homes will be between 1,600 and 2,400 square feet in size and range in price from about $180,000 to $220,000, according to DuMont. The majority will be two-story with some one-story homes with at least an optional bonus room offered.

“We’re trying to target a lower price point, but we don’t want to give up on the overall appearance of the community,” DuMont said. “They’re all going to have ornamental mailboxes and entry monuments that are going to be pretty similar to Fairvue’s. We want it to be kind of simple, but we want it to be elegant.”

The townhomes will be a similar product to Goodall Homes’ nearby Lenox Place development, but will not have a 55 and older age restriction requirement. The units will be between 1,600 and 1,800 square feet in size and prices are expected to be about $180,000 or in the low $200,000’s.

“Lenox has been an awesome project for us over the years, but we don’t want something that is going to look the exact same,” DuMont said. “The goal is to differentiate between the two… they’ll still look very similar, but they will have different color schemes and things like that.”

The Gallatin Planning Commission is scheduled to vote on the plan when it meets  July 25. Should it pass the planning commission, the plan must then pass two readings of the Gallatin City Council, and a public hearing must also be held.

If approved, an estimated timeline for construction of Patterson Farms is expected between 2016 and 2020, according to the plans submitted to the city.

Goodall Homes has also purchased section six of Clear Lake Meadows and plans to build 27 homes on the property. Work on the section could begin within the next three months and will tie into Patterson Farms once completed.

“This is a beautiful neighborhood as it is, so we’re going to follow their architectural restrictions,” DuMont said. “We want to match what they’ve already done and we’re going to try to make sure that what we do compliments their neighborhood.”

Warren Buffett’s company buys builder Goodall Homes

Berkshire Hathaway’s Clayton Homes now owns Middle Tennessee’s second largest homebuilder.

635974705007656379-bobgoodall

A subsidiary of billionaire investor Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway has acquired Middle Tennessee’s second largest homebuilder, continuing its expansion into building traditional homes.

Maryville, Tenn.-based Clayton Homes paid an undisclosed sum for Goodall Homes, which has its headquarters in Gallatin.

Clayton Homes, the nation’s largest manufactured housing and modular home company, made a big push into the site-built housing or traditional homebuilding market through acquiring Buford, Ga.-based homebuilder Chafin Communities last fallIt formed site-building arm Clayton Properties to expand its portfolio of housing options to homebuyers.

Clayton Homes’ latest acquisition includes 180 homes that Goodall has under construction. It also has inherited roughly 3,600 lots across Middle Tennessee, including Goodall’s finished and yet-to-be developed home sites in Williamson, Wilson, Sumner, Rutherford and Davidson counties.

Goodall Homes’ owner and President Bob Goodall Jr. said after declining overtures from other suitors over the years he accepted Clayton Homes’ offer because the two companies’ cultures matched well. Another factor was Clayton Homes’ commitment to retaining Goodall and his team, who through the deal will have more opportunities for professional growth and advancement, he said.

“We have been blessed with so many successful opportunities,” said Goodall, who founded Goodall Homes 33 years ago. “This acquisition will help our employees, trades, suppliers and our families continue on this path of growth for years to come. We are honored to be on the Clayton team and to contribute to the continued success of Berkshire Hathaway.”

Last year, Goodall Homes closed on 436 homes, ranking the homebuilder second in the Middle Tennessee market. Professional Builder magazine’s 2014 National Builder of the Year expects to close on about 440 homes this year. Goodall Homes had revenues of just under $140 million last year, which was the highest among all homebuilders in Middle Tennessee.

Last year, Clayton built more than 34,000 homes. The company builds traditional site-built homes, modular homes, manufactured housing, “tiny” homes, college dormitories, military barracks and apartments.

“Adding great builders like Goodall to our team is exciting,” said Clayton home building group President Keith Holdbrooks. “As we continue to grow and expand into the site-built market, it is important to partner with teams that share our culture of providing an excellent customer experience.”
