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.

Nashville drops three notches for 2018 outlook, remains top 10 U.S. real estate market

Categories: Franklin, Goodall Homes, Metro Studies, Nashville, New Community, Single Family Home, The Tennessean, Williamson County | Posted: November 3, 2017

For the third straight year, Nashville was ranked among the nation’s top 10 real estate markets to watch in the annual PwC/ULI Emerging Trends in Real Estate report.

The Music City dropped three notches from sixth to ninth, but the lead author of the report by  consulting firm PwC and the Urban Land Institute seen no reason for alarm.

“This year two new cities made it into the top 10, and that’s part of the reason Nashville moved down,” said Mitch Roschelle, a PwC partner. “It’s more important than anything that three years later Nashville  is still in the top 10.”

Salt Lake City and Fort Lauderdale moving into the top 10 for growth prospects in 2018  reflects a more favorable view of less competitive, smaller secondary markets.  The growing interest in smaller cities by real estate investors is influenced by their relative affordability, coupled with a concentration of young, skilled workers, Roschelle said.

Now in its 39th year, the Emerging Trends in Real Estate report involves 78 cities and is based on interviews and survey responses from more than 1,600 real estate experts, including investors, fund managers, developers, property companies, lenders, brokers, advisers and consultants. This year’s survey was conducted before Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

“Real estate investors who are participating in the survey are looking at 78 places where they can potentially invest and they’re looking at Nashville being in the top 10,” Roschelle said.

Among specific reasons for Nashville’s top 10 ranking, Roschelle cites the cost of doing business being 88 percent of the national average and local growth in disposal incomes  projected to be 40 percent higher than the national average over the next five years.

Like other top-ranked cities, Nashville is benefiting from a growing population of young people ages 15 to 34, Roschelle said. That group includes Millennials and some in a Generation Z demographic that’s estimated to grow as much as four times the nation’s average over the next five years.

Real estate investors also see Nashville having a lot of colleges and universities as attractive, with the city and others benefiting from the trend of more students of those institutions choosing to stay upon graduating.

“On a net basis, 20,000 people are expected to move to Nashville annually over the next five years and that’s a very positive trend,” Roschelle said.

Housing remains generally affordable in Nashville when compared to the nation, according to the report. The local median single-family home price of $250,000 is less than the nation’s $255,000, while in another sign of affordability apartment dwellers here spend only 20.6 percent of their incomes on rent versus 26.6 for the country overall.

Concerns remain about a shortage of single-family homes locally and nationwide that’s bordering on crisis. “First-time homebuyers are getting priced out because of the shortage,” Roschelle said. “The good news on Nashville is there’s a lot of apartments in the pipeline and that’s a good thing.”

Goodall Homes opens The Grove at Five Oaks

Potential homebuyers and guests will get a chance to see Goodall Homes’ newest Wilson County community, The Grove at Five Oaks, during an open house on Tuesday, Jan. 17.

New home consultant Zach Custer gave The Wilson Post a tour of the model homes in the neighborhood this week and explained why the design features, price point and perks make Goodall Homes some of the most desirable in Middle Tennessee.

Custer is currently manning the Georgetown-style villa in The Grove, located in West Lebanon’s Five Oaks neighborhood.

He explained that villas, depending on design and upgrades, range from $250,000 to $300,000. “Nothing really like that in Five Oaks. Most homes here are closer to $500,000 homes. Its maintenance-free living in a premier community,” he said.

This maintenance-free living includes landscaping and exterior care provided by the company. “All the homeowner is responsible for is the interior,” Custer added.

The villas range in size from one-story, 1,650 square-foot plans to nearly 2,400 square-foot plans if the homebuyer wishes to finish the upstairs with a media room.

Custer said they do not have one target demographic. The community will offer 114 residences in The Grove when completed. The villas are four-side brick.

From contract to closing is six months, Custer continued. “The first two months is design-oriented. Then it takes about four months to build the house,” he said.

The Georgetown model home, which is currently open, is 2,200 square-feet in size and includes two bedrooms, three full baths and a luxury kitchen with upgraded island and double ovens, as well as a two-car garage. Custer showed off the great room and dining room, decorated in a chic lime and aqua color scheme by Melissa Sisk of Shopgirl TN. There is also an “Arlington” style model home.

Homebuyers will receive free membership to Five Oaks Golf & Country Club for six months.

Goodall Homes has two additional communities in Wilson County – Stonebridge and Colonial Village, both in Lebanon.

Goodall Homes has a rich history in Tennessee. Company founder Bob Goodall Jr. started building in 1983 after graduation. The builder has focused on the development and construction of single-family homes, townhomes, courtyard cottages, condominiums and more in the Middle Tennessee area.

Goodall Homes was awarded Builder of the Year by Professional Builder Magazine in 2014.

Clayton, one of America’s largest homebuilders, announced in May 2016 it had acquired Goodall Homes. Goodall Homes can now be found in Wilson, Williamson, Sumner and Davidson counties.

In two weeks, Goodall Homes will hold the grand opening of the two models that will showcase the floorplans offered in the Grove at Five Oaks.

The event will take place Tuesday from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m.

“The Grove at Five Oaks offers maintenance-free living in the heart of the established Five Oaks neighborhood. Located on two holes of the 18-hole championship golf course, these energy-efficient homes offer one-level, zero-step entry with optional bonus room or loft per plan and a spacious kitchen,” said Rachael Holland Overall, director of marketing for Goodall Homes.

“The Grove at Five Oaks features our villas product line. Current floorplan offerings include the Arlington and Georgetown plans. Villas range from 1,635 to 2,327 square feet with two to three bedrooms, two to three bathrooms and a two-car garage. Maintenance-free living means homeowners don’t have to worry about landscaping, mowing or maintaining a yard – that’s all included in the homeowners association.”

Located on 29 acres, Goodall plans to build 114 residential structures, that will feature sets of two-attached homes with all sides bricked. Construction of the community began in October. Overall said Goodall expects the community should be built out in four or five years.

“With the purchase of a Goodall Homes villa, homeowners can choose one of the following free six-month memberships to Five Oaks Golf and Country Club, full golf membership; dining room membership; or pool, tennis, swimming membership,” Overall said.

The utilities are located underground and there are curbed streets and maintained greenways, she said.

The home prices start in the mid-$200,000s to low-$300,000s, depending on the floor plan and features.

Goodall Homes currently builds villas in neighborhoods, including StoneBridge in Lebanon and Carellton in Gallatin.

The homes can also be visited at any time. The office is open Sundays and Wednesdays from 1-5 p.m. and Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.
