Our city’s daily definitely seems hot on people buying a home in Sumner County right now.

Right before Christmas, we were talking about how cities like Hendersonville and Gallatin were drawing in a mix of millennials and retirees alike. Right after Christmas, The Tennessean took a look at how different communities in Sumner County have attributes that appeal to all kinds of lifestyles, from fitness enthusiasts to yardwork-haters.

“Sumner County has emerged as a popular destination for home buyers looking for a home that fits the way they live,” the paper said — and while that’s not untrue of communities across Davidson County and Williamson County too, Sumner County is definitely appealing to Nashville-area homebuyers who want lifestyle-appropriate amenities at a more manageable price point.

As our area has boomed, developers across Middle Tennessee have started thinking about shaping unique value — creating communities that have a particular appeal that certain buyers can’t resist. Sometimes that’s been eco-minded building practices and community accoutrements; sometimes that’s been building a world-class golf course within the community limits.

Sumner County does indeed have a broad spread of offerings, as The Tennessean highlights. Looking to buy a home in Hendersonville or Gallatin that hits all your lifestyle must-haves? Check out a few listings on the market now, organized by what their surrounding communities can offer you:

Homes for sale in Sumner County with unique lifestyle perks

Socializing with neighbors

Durham Farms in Hendersonville

{mls: 1996532}

273 Tanglewood Lane, #233

Hendersonville, TN 37075


Do you prize living in a community that has a tight-knit group of neighbors? The Durham Farms community helps facilitate neighborly interaction through activities and events organized by a lifestyle director, and offers family homes with big front-porch perches — like this 4-bed, 3-bath new build — that invite afternoons on a rockingchair, chatting with neighbors.

Minimal maintenance

316 Westminster Dr

Gallatin, TN 37066


Hate wasting your weekends weeding? This Gallatin community might catch your attention, with newer homes with all the modern conveniences and an HOA that takes care of all exterior maintenance. This almost 1,900-square-foot end unit has classic tudor style, and the freshness of brand-new construction (it was built in 2017), plus a bunch of upgrades, including a gas stove and high-end lighting.

Facilitating fitness

Millstone in Hendersonville

{mls: 1993108}

2070 Lingering Way

Hendersonville, TN 37075


Fitness-inclined folks have different preferences — some like to join a gym in town, others like to keep workouts really close to home, and set up a fitness space inside their house. Others split the difference, and live somewhere that offers community amenities designed for the fitness-inclined. This Hendersonville community delivers for those folks, with a resort-style pool and full fitness center, plus a walking trail. And if you like new builds with classic influences, this tudor-style home with 3 beds, 2 baths and more than 2,400 square feet of living area might be a fit.

Gracefully golfing

Foxland Harbor in Gallatin

{mls: 1994822}

1721 Boardwalk Pl

Gallatin, TN 37066


The Nashville area has a bunch of great golf communities, from Franklin to Gallatin, and Foxland Harbor in Gallatin is a favorite, right on the shoreline of Old Hickory Lake, with a course that was praised by Golfweek as one of the Top 10 New Courses around its opening. Homes there range from sprawling estates to attached homes at average prices. This home is close to the middle of that mix, with 5 beds, 4 1/2 baths, and prized proximity to the Foxland Harbor golf course (this location’s barely five minutes from the club).

Living like a pop star

123 Summit Lane

Hendersonville, TN 37075


It's not exactly a planned community, and this is a pretty specific lifestyle, but Kelly Clarkson's Sumner County estate, on the market for a while now, has enough space to be a community in and of itself. And even if you're not looking for a multi-million-dollar, 20,000-square-foot home, it's kinda fun to see how our most famous residents live, no? 

Retiring in style

Gatherings at Indian Lake in Hendersonville

Coming soon, this community will offer condos explicitly for homeowners 55 and older, close to shopping and lounging by the lake.
