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.

Goodall Homes to hold showcase for new homes

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.

Cost, convenience drive townhome sales in Williamson

Categories: Townhomes, Villas, Williamson County | Posted: September 17, 2016

(Bill Lewis, For Williamson. Click HERE for full article)

Townhomes with a small yard, or no yard at all, are among builders’ most in-demand floor plans.


Something is missing from many of the new homes being built in Williamson County, but no one seems to mind.

They have the granite countertops, gourmet kitchens and hardwood floors you’d expect in almost any new home, and many even have garages, but they don’t have the one feature that has gone hand-in-hand with the suburbs for generations.

The yard is gone.

For luxury builders and production homebuilding companies alike, two- and three-story townhomes with either no yard at all or a postage stamp of grass at the front door are among their most in-demand floor plans.

“I didn’t think I’d ever sell a townhome in Franklin, but I’ve sold a lot,” said Kevin Green, broker for luxury builder Ford Custom Classic Homes.

Lock and leave

A combination of market forces — including soaring prices for building sites and the desire of many homebuyers to live a lock-and-leave lifestyle — is making townhomes an attractive alternative to traditional single-family houses.

Because they take less land, townhomes can be less expensive to build and to buy. And no yard means no yard work.

“You don’t need a lawnmower,” said Green.

Ford Custom Classic Homes plans to build 34 townhomes in Echelon at Lockwood Glen. Ten are currently under construction.

“I have two units already sold and others are looking,” said Green.

The company also is introducing a new phase of townhomes at Westhaven and has previously offered brownstones near downtown Franklin.

“I think builders can’t build townhomes fast enough,” he said.


Builders move fast

Ford is not alone. The Patterson Company offers new townhomes priced from the mid-$300,000s to the $400,000s in the Gateway Village neighborhood in Cool Springs. Goodall Homes has offered townhomes for several years at its Shadow Green community in Franklin. Prices range from $305,275 to $326,427.

Goodall offers townhomes in Rizer Point, along Del Rio Pike, and in Lockwood Glen.

Goodall also offers cottages — similar to a townhome but all on one level — in the Waters Edge subdivision and in Nolensville at the Cottages at Bent Creek.

Regent Homes is introducing Federal-style brownstones in Berry Farms, the master-planned community on Franklin’s south side. Prices start at $350,000. Four went on the market the first week of September.

“I’ve already sold one, and they just got released last week,” said Jeffrey Caruth, affiliate broker for Regent Homes.

“It’s price-competitive with rent in Franklin, and it’s a maintenance-free lifestyle. There’s so much to do in the Nashville region these days. People want to live, work, play,” he said.

Regent also builds townhomes in Lockwood Glen, with prices starting at $369,900, and in Spring Hill’s Shirebrook subdivision, where prices begin at $199,900.

Regent builds condominiums in Westhaven, where a newly finished example was on sale in early September for $364,805. The company also has 27 condos under construction in Berry Farms. The Alicia Town Center Homes range from $249,900 to $299,900.

Affordability matters

Goodall Homes executive Keith Porterfield said affordability is making townhomes more popular than ever.

“Detached singles are so expensive. Townhomes are an option for a new home at a more reasonable price. More and more people don’t want the yard, and townhomes make for a good community. You get to know your neighbors,” he said.

Sandra Griffin discovered that two years ago when she moved from suburban Nashville to Shadow Green.

“Living in Franklin is such a joy,” she said.

One thing Griffin misses is having a private driveway. Finding a convenient parking spot can sometimes be a challenge. On the other hand, she doesn’t miss having a large yard.

“The upkeep was too much for me,” she said.

When the day comes that she doesn’t want to go up and down her townhome’s stairs anymore, she might consider buying one of Goodall’s cottages.

“In a few years, definitely, I’d like one level,” said Griffin.


Lake Lures Homebuyers to Sumner County

(Written by Bill Lewis for The Tennessean–Sunday, January 5, 2014)

Scott and Elisabeth DeWitt were looking for warmer weather when they moved from Michigan to Sumner County. Living on the shore of Old Hickory Lake just minutes from downtown Nashville was a welcome bonus.

“I can look at the water, and we have deer running around. But we’re 15 minutes from the airport and 15 minutes from downtown,” said Scott DeWitt.

Home builders are preparing for more new residents like the DeWitts to arrive in Sumner County from other states and other locations in Tennessee. Hundreds of new homes are under construction or in the planning stages in Hendersonville and Gallatin, the two largest cities in the county.

The county is poised for growth similar to what has taken place in Rutherford, Williamson and Wilson counties, said Jimmy Johnston, president and CEO of Forward Sumner, an economic development organization.

“Sumner has been overlooked a little bit,” Johnston said. “Having said that, we want to be part of that (growth) conversation.”

Alternative to Williamson County

New residents are attracted by attributes including good schools, short commutes to downtown Nashville, convenient shopping and entertainment opportunities and affordable living, he said. Many, like the DeWitts, want to live near Old Hickory Lake.

“We’re the county with the water,” Johnston said.

The DeWitts had their home built by Gallatin-based Goodall Homes, one of the region’s most active home builders. The company is preparing to build 300 homes in the newly developed Carellton subdivision at Long Hollow Pike and Big Station Camp Boulevard in Gallatin.

Lennar Homes, a national builder, has acquired 200 home sites in Carellton. Creekside Homes, based in Oakland, Tenn., has 70 lots in the subdivision.

“Logistically, it’s great for people who work in Davidson County. It’s a straight shot down I-65,” said Andy Pfeifer, president of Lennar’s Nashville division.

Lennar’s homes in Carellton will have 2,000 to 3,000 square feet and have base prices in the low- to mid-$200,000 range, Pfeifer said.

With granite, hardwoods, ceramic tile and 9-foot ceilings, he said, they would have many desired amenities “without as high a price point as Williamson County.”

Price ‘sweet spot’

Goodall has plans for 180 single-family homes in Carellton, as well as 64 villas and possibly 62 condominiums. Prices have not been finalized but may range from the low- to mid-$200,000s for single-family homes, a price range the company believes is in demand in Sumner County, said Vice President Chris O’Neal.

“It’s a sweet spot,” he said.

This year, Goodall plans to begin construction of Millstone, a master-planned community of more than 600 homes off Saundersville Road in Hendersonville.

“It’s one of the largest developments that have taken place in a long time,” O’Neal said. “It’s going to be spectacular.”

The community will have 420 single-family houses and 194 villas, cottage homes and townhomes. Amenities will include a resort-style pool, a pavilion, a fitness center, a community lake, a playground and a walking trail.

Goodall expects to open a model home this spring at the Retreat at Fairvue, a cottage home community in Gallatin’s Greensboro Village area adjacent to Green Lea Boulevard. The homes will be similar to those the company offers in the Cottage Grove community in Goodlettsville, which straddles the Sumner-Davidson county line.

Buyers downsizing

Homes in the Retreat at Fairvue will feature wide doorways, zero-step entries and private courtyards and are designed to appeal to homeowners who want less space to maintain.

“There are so many people who want to downsize and want one-level living,” O’Neal said.

Lake is a big draw

Goodall also offers luxury villas in the Foxland Harbor golf community on the shore of Old Hickory Lake. The villas offer one-level living and are designed as two conjoined single-family homes.

Sumner County’s appeal is easy to see, said Tommy Jarratt, principal broker for Gallatin-based Southeastern Building Corp. The company has built 1,200 homes, mostly in the Gallatin and Hendersonville areas.

Southeastern has homes in several subdivisions, including Kennesaw Farms, Stonecrest, Wynbrooke, Saundersville Station, Five Coves and Otter Pointe.

“The area has a small-town feel, but you have a lot of amenities. Plus, the lake,” Jarratt said.

James Wallace, whose company, Wallace Custom Builders, has been active in Sumner County for 14 years, said he is building several lakeside homes.

“Many of my current clients were drawn to Hendersonville or Gallatin because of Old Hickory Lake. They also like the feel of a small town with all of the conveniences of a larger community,” Wallace said.

In the year that they’ve owned their home, Scott and Elisabeth Dewitt have enjoyed the quality of life in Sumner County.

“We’re not from the South,” he said, “but we hurried to get here.”

Bob Goodall, President of Goodall Homes, said,  “The demographics of discriminating buyers are changing, they want luxury features but with little or no maintenance.  Several homeowners in the Fairvue area are spending other seasons in different states and this is the perfect option for a second home.”

Professional Builder Magazine: Building Middle Ground

Categories: Condominium, Franklin, Goodall Homes, Goodall News, Housing Market, Nashville Area Homebuilder, New Homes Nashville Area, Professional Builder Magazine, Realtor News, Single Family Home, Subdivision, Townhome, Villas, Williamson County | Posted: May 23, 2013

In this month’s Professional Builder Magazine, Kyle Clapham (managing editor) says the following about Goodall Homes in a column titled “Building Middle Ground”:

Goodall Homes–Gallatin, TN–Housing Giants Rank:  132

Goodall Homes has offered three basic products for the last three years:  single family (small and large), one-level condominiums, and two-story townhomes.  The one-level condominiums continue to be a strong seller as more people opt for simplified, open floor plans, and the two-story townhomes perform amply when located in or near an urban area, says COO Keith Porterfield.

The builder expects to close about 300 homes this year in four counties around Nashville, Tenn.  Goodall plans to open three communities in Franklin, Williamson County, which Porterfield describes as “one of the hottest markets in the Southeast,” with another development on the way in the future.

The company implemented an operational change in November 2012 to improve relationships with subcontractors and trades and provide a better buyer experience.  Goodall had been turning around homes in 80 to 85 calendar days on average but wanted more certainty in its processes.

The firm decided to limit starts to eight per week so the customer could know the exact date the home would close.  Doing so also enabled Goodall to tell trades the exact day they would have to be on the jobsite.

“Once these homes start, the schedule is uploaded to the trade portal,” Porterfield says.  “We know the exact day the lumber will drop, and we know the exact day the plumber will rush into the house.”

Instead of 80 to 85 calendar days, Goodall’s homes now average about 68 work days.  Though the cycle is slower, the change has helped overcome labor shortages, Porterfield says.
