With numbers like that, I can’t imagine those new home sales figures ramping down in the near future. Which is all to say that, for this week’s Open Houses roundup, I thought it might be a good time to put the focus on new construction homes that are inviting house-hunters in this weekend.
First, here’s the broad Open House picture for the weekend:
If you love to cook, the kitchen in this 4-bed, 5-bath home is absolutely breathtaking, with dynamic dark-and-light design and tons of storage. The living area right next to it — with a beam ceiling and stone fireplace — equally so. And two suites on the first floor (with incredible baths)? Serious luxury here in Franklin. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
Looking for contemporary cool in East Nashville? This 3-bed, 3-bath has an open main floor that’s perfect for entertaining (and/or keeping an eye on the kids while you cook), and its three fantastic covered porches let you enjoy a great leafy lot, too. Open Sunday 1 to 5 p.m.
Earlier this year, we collected our thoughts on the hot home design trends of 2015, and I love how this 3-bed, 2 1/2 home incorporates so many of the coolest looks — in particular, multiple focal-point light fixtures, bronze and mixed metals and a bright, clean kitchen. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
1415 14th Ave.
Nashville, TN 37212
Classic and classy new construction that’s a quick walk from Belmont, Vandy and 12 South fun, has great living room built-ins and a slick fireplace, lots of eye-grabbing wainscoting and a master bath that’ll take your breath away. Open Saturday 1 to 4 p.m.
If you’re looking for new construction with historic-throwback design touches, this 4-bed, 3 1/2-bath home in Sylvan Park has that down, from the welcoming front porch with beadboard and ceiling fans to arched walkways and a coffered ceiling and wainscoting in the dining room. Open Sunday 2 to 4 p.m.
And here's a non-Open House side note of awesomeness:
Utterly gorgeous in Inglewood, you won’t find another new, detached home in the area that offers so much to love — incredible, open and contemporary kitchen, upscale design touches (from granite and quartz to custom built-ins), a big screened patio for mosquito-less outdoor hangs and lots more — at this price point. If you’re looking East, you’ll definitely want to take a look at this one (give me a call for showings).
Any of these new homes catch your eye? Definitely some great options this weekend.
