Check out Franklin TN

Driving through the streets of Historic Franklin in Williamson County you will pass some truly incredible homes. These houses are an average of four-thousand square feet and well appointed with custom trims and gorgeous flooring. The homes are very well taken care of with wonderful landscaping and beautiful detail work.

Not only are these homes gorgeous but they are also rich in history. Franklin sits in the middle of what was a battle ground in the 1800’s. These homes in Franklin played a role in the battle. For example, Carnton Plantation was the home of the famed, ‘Widow of The South.’ (Read the book. Its really great) Franklin homes are filled with character and charm. There are some new residential developments being built in Franklin that I think will be huge successes in continuing the tradition of excellence as well as bringing a younger crowd into the area.

The first of these is a development of townhomes directly off Main Street. I believe they are called 11th and Main. These Townhomes are not your average townshomes. Covering up to 2700 square feet, these showpieces are filled with gorgeous hardwood flooring, insane crown moldings and top of the line appliances. Each room posseses its own character and details. When most builders build townhomes they do not feel it necessary to go the extra mile as far as details go. The builder of the townhomes I speak of definitely went the extra mile. The woodwork in these homes is exquisite. The shelving is encased with awesome detail work and moldings. Some units have a private brick enclosed courtyard that is perfect for a wall fountain and outdoor dining table. The owners are going to love the kitchens, with their granite counters and top of the line cabinets. I highly recommend you check these out. (I should also mention the great price. They are priced to sell!)

Another awesome development for the younger crowd in Franklin is the new Jamison Station. Sitting directly across the street from the Factory, Jamison Station possesses features that will make the owner feel they are really living in New York. As you enter the unit you will see a large living space and a half bath. Hop on your own elevator and go up one floor to the kitchen and eating space, as well as living space. The kitchen is very open, which will show off you Viking appliances. You be surrounded by modern walls and lighting fixtures. The floor is a sleek hardwood. To go to the bedrooms you go up again, to the third floor. The rooms are on the smaller side. (which is to be expected in a loft setting) However, the master bath is tremendous. Slate flooring and a huge shower add a New York feel to the bathroom. These units are very clean-lined and modern. Each unit has its own large balcony enclosed in brick walls. The fixtures are very modern and complete that loft feeling. Be ready to sell some of you furniture to fit in this loft style space. However, with the character and swank New York feel I know you would not miss it.

As a whole I am thrilled Franklin is starting to bring in younger crowds. I think it is needed to have modern and edgy living spaces to do that. However, I am hoping that each new development takes notice of how high the bar has been set by the ones I speak of.
