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.
by TJ AndersonI have a thing for Nashville’s classic ranchers — co
"TJ is a true professional. My wife and I were looking for a home last summer, TJ worked very hard tracking down the sellers agents and even negotiated the price down within our budget. We actually had an offer in place when we decided to pull the offer (we got our heads back) at the last minute. TJ was unfazed (I would have been more than a little peeved if a customer was that close to purchase and then backed out) and took it all in stride. You can tell a lot about someone when things are going their way. You can tell even more about them when things don't work out.
I would highly recommend (and have recommend) TJ to anyone selling a home in the Middle Tennessee area. Zach D."
